Does banning weapons with firing characteristics friendly to female gun owners disproportionately discriminate against women?

I wouldn't put it past this dumb GOV to allow women and minority so-called 'groups' the right to an assault weapon... but them only!

lol... jk

I found out yesterday, with a couple of guys that were trying to steal something, little ol' me is pretty scary without a gun. :lol: :tu:

That being said, a handgun is all I will ever need.

Actually an AR-15 is the ideal gun for a woman against one or more assailants trying to invade her home.  It can be fired accurately from the hip with minimum practice, can put multiple rounds on target with ease and is loud enough that only the most committed of intruders would continue once it is fired in their direction.  Recoil is almost nothing - sweet weapon.

I remember the first time I fired one.  I was 11 or 12 in the Boy Scouts and one year we took our annual trip to the shooting range, one of the scout's fathers brought his AR-15 and let us each take three shots with it.  I remember I was intimidated at first by how it looked but fell in love with it in three rounds.   From 50 yards I painted three holes through the center of the bullseye effortlessly.   I wanted to shoot it again badly, but it was time to leave.

Back in 1998 I joined a shooting club and got into "service rifle" competition.  You could compete with the AR or the M1A and it could be customized except for the weight of the trigger break.  We fired 200yds standing off hand, 400 yds seated with sling and 600 yds prone.  A bull on a 600 yd target was 3 feet across and looked like a black match head!  All iron sights, no optics - I LOVED it!

the  perfect  fire  arm  is  a 12 gauge  pump shot  gun ...  the  only  training  you  need  is   to  say  in  a loud  voice  "  honey ,  is  that  you  ? "   and  chamber  a  round  with  as  great  a  sound  as  practical .

my  target  rifle  is  a bolt action , model  of  1918  enfeild with  a welded   weiver  rail ,   a  ultra  fancy  black  oak   thumb hole  stock , timeny target  trigger   and  a  34 inch   stainless  steel , 11:1  micro groove  25  lans/groove  high  pressure  barrel  with  11  degree   target  muzzel  chambered  in  3o.o6.
the  rifle  weight  is   18  pounds  with  out  the  scope ,  and  just  less  than  20  pounds  with  a  full  magizine  and  scope.

the  88mm (  3  inch  ) objective  on  the  12x-36x power  scope   will  place   1/2  minute  of  angle  when  bench  rested .  i  shoot   2 1/2 moa avarage  seated  on  the  ground  ...   one  minute  of  angle  is  1.o64 inches   @  300 feet ...  or   the  sine  of  1/60th of  a  degree x  3600 inches .

most  avarage  rifles  direct from  the  factory   will  shoot   2  moa  bench  rested  and  most  untrained   shooters  will  shoot   3moa  to  5moa  seated   ... and/or...   5mao  to  15moa  when  standing  and  unsupported .

most  (  nearly  all )   united  states  marines   shoot   1moa   to  2  moa  ,  and  are  likely  the  standard  by  which   shooting   is  measured .

Do they fit snugly into the handbags? maybe this would be a good time to make a handbag with a side pocket specially designed to hold one.
We do like our handbags.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

All of the talk about "assault weapons" is silly anyway given how few are actually used to commit crimes each year.

Frankly, more people die in scissor accidents than by "assault weapons".

I wouldn't go as far as saying its easy to aim from the hip... I really think that would be the worst idea, considering the strength of the round and concerns for overpenetration.

Not even the military fires it from the hip, even when doing room clearing.

They might not keep all women safe. Thus we need to ensure that all women have gatling guns. That'll keep them safe...well provided they can develop the upper body strength to carry them. :P

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
