A fascinating new book from Lindsay McCrum explores one of the most prevalent but lowest-profile groups of gun owners: women. The book shows that 15 million American women from a wide variety of ages, classes, and political perspectives own firearms. While their reasons for gun ownership vary, one sentiment remains consistent throughout the book’s entirety: safety is essential– especially when it comes to children.
As always, the first and most important practice for any gun owner with children in the home is to keep the weapon securely stowed in a gun safe.
