Seen ‘Assaulted’? Now You Need A Ticket For ‘A Girl And A Gun’

While Kris Koenig’s “Assaulted” documentary looks at the gun control debate on a rather broad scale, an upcoming documentary titled “A Girl And A Gun” is taking a peek at a decidedly more narrow sliver of the gun culture, but one that becomes less narrow every day. Female gun owners are an increasingly large segment of the market, and this documentary seems to be looking to investigate the reason behind that growth. Make the jump for their presser. . .

A GIRL AND A GUN shows the female perspective on an object whose history is deeply bound to men and masculinity. The classic Hollywood portrayals of pistol packin’ mamas, tomboy sharp shooters, sexually twisted femme fatales, and high-heeled, cold-blooded assassins are caricatures. In truth, the typical woman who hangs out at rifle ranges and keeps ammo in her purse is the girl-next-door, the single mom, a hard working sister or aunt. Maybe she’s a realist or has learned tough lessons from life; either way, she cares about her personal safety and may even find salvation, comfort or something satisfying in possessing a gun. In a word, she is empowered.

Breaking through the caricatures, A GIRL AND A GUN reveals America’s diverse and far-ranging female gun community. It depicts how this community is portrayed by the media and targeted by the gun industry; and shows, through personal stories, how guns change women’s lives.

    I am proud of women exercising the same rights that all of the citizens have,women need to be able to protect themselves against any threatening situation that comes up.I like to see the sense of accomplishment on my wife’s face after she enjoys a day of shooting with me.On a side note,there is a news byte over on Gunrights Examiner.comabout a fellow that had the Secret Service pay him a visit after he has spoken out about Boobama,they searched his residence after he was coerced to sign a warrant,and was told as they were leaving that they would come back and take his guns if he didn’t stop.Don’t we have 1st Amendment Rights to say what we want ?Is the government now going to use Stasi style tactics against the citizens to gag us?It’s getting closer and closer!Keep your powder dry.

    This could be good if women actually watch it. Unfortunately, the ones who do will already have a gun, and the ones who won’t watch it are busy teaching their sons that Nerfs are bad, contact sports are bad and boys should be more like their sisters.

      I hear some schools are “encouraging” boys to pee sitting down.

        Probably at the begging of the janitors.

        Can they send a pistol-packin’ redhead by for an pertinent interview, something I am really GOOD at?

        She mustn’t yell a bunch, if that’s all right…

          I pack a pistol and have recently become a redhead.

          I’d eat you for lunch.

      I normally would not go since I have guns, member of woman’s shooting league but will go if I can get one of my girlfriends who is not a shooter yet to go.

      Feel sad for the ladies who have never experienced the Zen of shooting for recreation.
