Tony of Bullets First interviewed me and countless other young women attending CPAC about our support for the Second Amendment.
As I was taking a shuttle to the convention center that was holding CPAC, a young woman struck up a conversation with me when she saw my media credentials. When you have something that says “Bullets First” on it, gun owners tend to take notice. While on the ride to the National Harbor in Maryland she told me the story of how she got involved in firearms and what the right to keep and bear arms meant to her.
Now, while I am used to women gun owners I began to think of all the stereotypes the gun controllers like to spew forth. So I decided to document gun owners at CPAC who did not fit the stereotype. Once I got rolling though the project took on a life of its own. Not only gun carriers but those who will soon be carrying, those who are denied their self protection by school or state, wanted to say their peace…so I let them.
Here’s the video. I start talking at 11:04.
It’s undeniable that girls just wanna have guns. We’re growing in numbers and are here to stay. Deal with it!
