Reply Dirk Diggler says: May 18, 2012 at 14:19 I am FB friends with the reporter and have been suggesting that she at least go out and shoot once. Glad to see she got with Rick. He appears often on that tv station as an advocate for responsible gun owners. Reply Derek says: May 18, 2012 at 14:29 Good for her. I mean that, genuinely. Reply Ralph says: May 18, 2012 at 14:42 Those were some very sharp ladies who really get it. The last one (with the cute dimples) really made me laugh, too. Reply Greg says: May 18, 2012 at 14:47 Good for them !!! With a positive piece like this, maybe it will encourage more men and women to follow their lead. Reply House Guest says: May 18, 2012 at 14:52 Check out the grouping at 1:02 — please do not let her be my next door neighbor! Reply Chris Dumm says: May 18, 2012 at 15:07 Rick Ector has moved the ball forward about 15 yards with this CPL class and this press coverage. It’s not about paranoia, testosterone, or anti-government anger: it’s all about taking responsibility for your own safety and that of your family. Good on Mr. Ector, and good on the ladies who took the class. Reply Matt in FL says: May 18, 2012 at 15:59 I really appreciated that story. It occurs to me that for these people, to quote Will Smith in Bad Boys, “Shit just got real.” These are people who just do not have time for hand-wringing, shrinking violet, criminal apologist liberal sensibilities about guns. They are too busy trying to save their own lives to get involved in a conversation about it. Reply Jwhite says: May 18, 2012 at 16:07 it’s all fun and games, girl power when its women… If its a bunch of men, its “Are these men terrorists? Is your community safe? some say yes, others might say no…” Eye roll….HUGE eye roll. Reply Jwhite says: May 18, 2012 at 16:11 When its women learning to shoot.. It’s “Women not wanting to be victims” when its a man learning to shoot it’s “Hes training to kill people” Reply Nate says: May 18, 2012 at 18:16 I think it depends on the network broadcasting it. I applaud this network for letting them explain themselves instead of editing the piece to push their own anti – 2A agenda. Reply RKflorida says: May 18, 2012 at 16:37 I have nothing negative to say about this piece. Great story and I’m really impressed with the comments from the women. My favorite is the lady saying she isn’t telling anything! These gals are sharp and are taking responsibility for themselves. Personal accountability – what a unique concept in today’s USA. Reply Tom says: May 18, 2012 at 18:28 Good for the gals! Maybe they just got tired of the goblins and the MAIG crap. Reply racer88 says: May 18, 2012 at 19:26 Wow! What a great piece that was! Those women brilliantly articulated their beliefs and rational for choosing to acknowledge their RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITY to protect themselves. Every single quote from those ladies flies in the face of the antis arguments that we are knuckle-dragging troglodytes / rednecks hell-bent on vigilantism. I especially loved the lady at the end who looked into the camera saying she wasn’t giving away her “secrets” and effectively warned all bad guys to BACK THE **** OFF. LOL! Beautiful! Reply racer88 says: May 18, 2012 at 19:27 Typing too quickly… should have read “brilliantly articulated their beliefs and rationale.” Left off the “e.” 🙂 Reply Bob says: May 18, 2012 at 21:34 YES!!!! More women shooters, please. Reply Phrederick says: May 18, 2012 at 23:34 *slow clap* Reply J says: May 20, 2012 at 23:08 I’m glad to see so many of the women and the firearms trainer interviewed, are black. It goes a long way to dispel the canard that gun owners are all “old, racist, white men.” The right to self protection is for everybody, and these women obviously understand that they have to take care of themselves if they want to be safe.
