Getting more women into the shooting sports has been a focus of gun ranges across the country for years now. Not only do they represent a vast untapped market for firearms sales, but they’re also are a population that could benefit from the “force multiplication” effect a firearm can provide. If we can stop just one rape by a woman carrying a concealed handgun, it will all be worth it.
Ladies nights have been a great way to provide women with a “safe space” to explore firearms with less stress, but thanks to one California attorney such events may be doomed.
Based upon the letter received by the Riverside Magnum Range this guy wants to receive money from the range because they support and promote women shooting firearms and might have violated a so-called discrimination law.
What’s the motivation here? There could be a couple reasons, but the general consensus is that this is an anti-gun activist who wants to make it as difficult as possible for gun stores and ranges to operate, reducing the pool of gun owners and stamping out the gun culture wherever possible.
That’s been the overall focus of groups like Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety operation, making gun ownership as expensive and inconvenient as they can can. As someone once suggested, the plan seems to be to put an end to the “gun culture,” slowly starving it to death.
Fortunately, all the world is not like California. At least not yet.
