The DC Project describes itself as an educational, non-partisan initiative that send 50 women — one from each state — to DC each year to lobby for the Second Amendment and gun rights. It was started in 2015 by police officer and pro shooter Dianna Muller.
Maybe you know Muller from this (skip ahead to the 4:00 mark):
She told the House Judiciary Committee that if an assault weapons ban were enacted, she would not comply. You can imagine how happy most of them were to hear that.
Now, in a press conference on the first day of the SHOT Show here in Las Vegas, Muller announced that the DC Project is expanding. They’ll be widening their efforts from one woman per state to one for every congressional district in the country. The someday goal is to also operate on the state and local levels and get 435 women to DC annually to knock on their congresscritters’ doors.
The goal is also to counter the traction already achieved by Michael Bloomberg’s red-shirted moms. The DC project has adopted teal as their color of choice and the goal is to have a teal-shirted woman everywhere Shannon’s red shirts show up — local, state and national.
The challenge is to grow the operation (and raise the funds needed to make that happen). Moms Demand Action has a $36 million annual operating budget. That’s not a problem when you’re owned and operated by someone who’s worth $54 billion.
So the DC project is looking for more members, something this week’s spectacle of over 20,000 peaceful, law abiding gun owners standing up for their civil rights helped to further. If you want to join the DC project or know a woman who might, go to DCProject.info and click on the Join link.
If you can’t join, but would like to help, they have a Donate link, too. If you have a few extra disposable shekels, the DC Project is a very good cause that will help ensure that America’s gun culture and our Second Amendment freedoms remain strong.
