Do you think all women should carry guns?

If every woman carried a gun, no one would ever bother us, attempt to rape us, and we'd all feel safe.

Your thoughts?

  • Agreed. But what if some woman got pissed at someone and just shot them? I'd be a bit terrified cuz you know there are crazy people out there that would do such thing.

  • I have no problem if a women carries a gun if she chooses to. As long as she is educated on the handling, use, and care of owning a gun. Ohh, and as long as she isn't a convicted felon or illigal alien.

  • No we would not all be safe but I would carry a gun. I had to be certified with the state and my job. The classes were very interesting and you would be surprised with a gun vs knife fight.

  • That's not a good reason to owe a gun for women or anyone.

    What do you think a gun can protect you?

    Don't go to places that you aren't supposed to go, try to leave with someone together to the dark parking lot. Letting someone know you are leaving or heading home, get your car key ready before you start walking to the car, don't talk on the cell phone but have it handy.

    Look and pay attention when you walk alone in a quiet street or parking lot.

    Finally, stop being paraniod.

  • I would carry one in my purse. I am a hunter and i believe its my right to own guns. I believe education is key. My only problem now is that fact my kids get into my purse and i rather not at this age. but when they get older i probably will.

  • I think it's criminal that in some states, women aren't allowed to carry because the state won't allow anyone to carry.

    And as for this:
    what if some woman got pissed at someone and just shot them
    It would just make less mess than when that same woman poisons his coffee or stabs him 40 times in his sleep. You probably have 100 ways to kill someone between your kitchen and your garage, even if you don't own a gun.

    Fortunately, our Constitution disagrees with you.
