Last week The National Rifle Association, along with Smith & Wesson, launched a new womens Internet channel in an effort to highlight and cater to the growing movement of women in the gun community.
The NRA announced on their Facebook page, We are proud and excited to announce the new and improved NRA Women presented by Smith & Wesson Corp. Our mission is to expose the public to the female face of the NRA. Look for profiles featuring women in the shooting sports who are making their voices known coming soon!
The channel features a variety of topic areas: Armed and Fabulous is a collection of profiles of women and one teenage girl, who have already made a presence for themselves in the gun community while New Energy looks at the fresh faces among the ranks of NRA women. The Range Ready section offers a variety of tips and tactics in the categories of shooting, safety, hunting and competition. Lifestyle sections centerpiece is The Girls Guide to Guns with Natalie Foster along with recipes for wild game, and Girls and Guns Night Out showcasing local leagues. The Womens Leadership Forum introduces women of influence that defend Second Amendment freedoms and help secure the future of the NRA through philanthropic leadership. Refuse to Be a Victim is dedicated to all the brave women who have defended themselves with a firearm and those who refuse to be a victim, featuring an armed woman of the week and resources for self-defense training.
It is a breath of fresh air to see a lot of folks equating gun rights with womens rights nowadays and its great to know that women are not alone in both the gun community and in the struggle for Second Amendment rights.

I approve —divorce and non-marriage is common. The boys should be taught by their dads, but if not, then the moms will have to teach them, and their daughters, too.
This demographic change is also the reason for the decline of hunting. :(
Dads are just not around.
They are trying to define gun owners as bitter white male anti-government losers. When the NRA promotes images of all of these happy women, it prevents them from freezing their target. The NRA is preventing the Gun Grabbers from seizing control of the imagery.
Now they need to reframe the argument from registration to the right to privacy. Gun owners should have a right to privacy about what guns they own and how many.
I've got an account that is deactivated and if I knew how to use it, I'd start becoming politically active with it.......
What good it if it isn’t dangerous??
I think they need to take it a step further, by also having shows tailored to special interest groups among women.
Start by using successful social media models, such as the currently successful women’s round table shows. A show like that shouldn’t try to stay entirely focused on guns, but discuss issues peripheral to guns as well.
Importantly, while only a minority of male gun owners hunt, the number of female gun owners who hunt is just a small fraction of that. There are probably more gun owning female animal lovers than there are hunters. So a female hunter’s show should be very niche programming.
How about a “black women and guns” show? Very different issues, in many cases, and an awful lot of prep behind the scenes. But if it took hold, it could bring in a very different demographic.
Another one could be a “female LEO” show, featuring stories from around the US of the adventurous lives of women cops.
Women and Guns, what could possible be wrong with that?
“Women and Guns, what could possible be wrong with that?”
That’s why I am not a marketing consultant. I would lose my objectivity on this contract.
Yes! Do it!
That’ll be 1 million please...Paypal?
Keep working on them. My wife has agreed to join now and it is something of a surprise but she has really learned the lesson of the last month: Support the organizations which truly represent us in Congress.
That argument just might win them over.
