Women Of The NRA

In dealing with the demonization campaign deployed by the progressive left against law-abiding gun owners, the NRA has developed some powerful video that looks to put the issue into perspective.  You should check our We Are New Energy on the NRA Women TV channel.  This video along with many of the others on their new network showcase women shooters and how firearms can be an empowering and fulfilling part of their lives.  Check it out.

And here are a few more examples of how liberal talk of empowering women whilst disarming them is all crap.
