Pop quiz: Name one accessory that grandmothers, moms, girls, wealthy socialites, middle-class females and low-income women might be likely to own and cherish all across America.
If you answered a gun, youd be correct.
Based on polling research and gun-sale statistics, an estimated 15 million to 20 million women in the United States own their own firearms. Dozens of those heat-packing women are documented in Chicks with Guns, a new book by photographer Lindsay McCrum that is sure to challenge almost anyones assumptions about gun ownership.
Their numbers are really high but their profile is actually really low, said McCrum, who spent three and a half years capturing artistic and arresting portraits of women with their weapons of choice.
I was so surprised by the variety and breadth and diversity of these women, McCrum said. There are so many stereotypes about guns, mostly derived from popular culture, but the reality is so much more complex and varied than you can imagine.

Ya, I like that photo too, for the longest time I didn’t even notice she was holding a gun ...
Second pic, on the rug, close at hand...
She's got a gun?
does G. Gordon Liddy still sell that Packed and Stacked Calendar he used to plug?
My sister-in-law says that I “pack heat.” I don’t think that she approves. My brother, some time ago, said out of a clear blue sky, “only the army and cops should have guns.” Their house is gun-free. We are sons of a retired Detroit cop, and are both vets, but the similarities end there.
But that first pictue of the thong as weapon holder is just WRONG!
Kinda looks like Dana Loesch.
"Loesch lives in south St. Louis, shops at Costco and Trader Joe's, loves Stag and French-press coffee, sets off her tattoos with diamond earrings and likes to fiddle with hydrangeas and handguns. She can cite Scripture without having to open the Old Testament and digs the irreverence of Penn & Teller."
What is it about contemporary photography that they have to make everyone look like a loser wierdo?
She's got the right stuff for sure.
wierdo = weirdo
I hate that WIBC only has her for an hour. I usually turned off after Rush, but I was outside working on the deck and she came on. I’m going, ‘who is this chick - she rocks!’. I now stream her show through my iPhone “TuneIn Radio” app.
Personally, I think she needs three hours following Rush. That would give us six hours of conservative broadcast goodness.
And she loves bacon.
WIBC is only the second station in the US to pick her up. I’m guessing that they are going to decide based on her ratings.
It’s kind of ironic that WIBC is owned by mega liberal Jeff Smulyan but has Garrison, Rush, and Dana on all day.
At least the guy knows what sells in the marketplace.
I like the ending of this one better . . .
