Finally, A Use for “You Go Girl!”

I don’t like overused clichés, but for this I am making an exception. Detroit News headline today: “Women With CPLs Surge in Michigan.”

The number of women statewide who received or renewed concealed pistol licenses rose from 10,862 in 2010 to 25,418, a gain of 134 percent.

And while women still made up less than a quarter of the state’s new CPL holders last year, their numbers are growing faster than the number of Michigan men getting licenses. The number of newly issued or renewed CPL licenses for men surged 103 percent from 2010 to 2014.

…Gratiot County, in mid-central lower Michigan, had the state’s biggest jump in women with new CPLs, surging 489 percent.

So … You go girl(s)! The proprietor of Detroit Arms, LLC, a place where I have taken training, notes that one-third of her classes are now women whereas, formerly, women had to be dragged along to gun training, kicking and screaming, by their husbands/boyfriends. Hence the new female conundrum:

'Does this outfit make my concealed weapon look big?'

    I’m all for self-defense, by any means necessary.

    However, in this country, it is becoming increasingly chilling because of cases like George Zimmerman and the cop in Ferguson, Missouri being penalized for defending themselves. These sorts of stories sure are scaring ME into just wanting to run away from the race of people responsible for the bulk of this violence, rather than hope and pray I won’t be targeted by police and prosecutors seeking out their “great white defendant”.

    …..and then there were girls like US who knew the merits of a good shooting gun and took advantage of it….
