Posted on 08/23/2012 5:43:52 AM PDT by servo1969
llinois is the only state in the country that denies all rights to carry arms. When I arrived there this week, however, I felt like I was free compared to the District. To get better at shooting, I took a ladies self-defense training course taught by Rob Pincus at the Winchester Company in the Prairie State.
With my gun in a locked box, I was able to take it from the St. Louis airport to the hotel in Collinsville and the two shooting ranges. In Washington, I can only legally have my gun in my home. A visitor to the nation's capital could not bring a gun to train because it's always illegal to possess an unregistered gun in Washington. Also, there are no shooting ranges in D.C. because the city uses zoning to make it effectively impossible to open one.
Beginning on Monday, we shot at Nilo farms, which is private property owned by Winchester. That's something else that can't be done back home in the District because it's always illegal to discharge a firearm. Both ranges we went to were outside, something I'd never done before, and is much more enjoyable than shooting at a gun range inside.

Darn A pretty woman who enjoys firearms.
If it were not for my 30 year marriage I would be in love.
A thoroughly enjoyable read, Emily is doing her part at preserving America. Having a pleasant experience is a plus for the ladies, and helps spread the interest.
As a father of two daughters I believe it is always good when a human, and especially a woman, ceases to be prey.
She is becoming a very good spokes person for gun rights.
Amy is such a treasure! I hope the Second Amendment Sisters have a special honor for her.
Emily, that is. sheesh.
