TOPIC: NRA courts women, pink rifles, carry purses on display at convention
Created by: Nkenswing
Original Starting post for this thread:
HOUSTON -- At this weekend's National Rifle Association Convention, Carrie Bradshaw met Annie Oakley. On display in the 9-acre firearms expo alongside Civil War-era antique guns, black AR-15 rifles and camouflage-patterned hunting gear? Pink rifles and hand guns, "Concealed Carrie" purses with hidden handgun pockets, and "Flashbang" holsters that attach to the front or side of a bra. "We kinda started this because we didn't want women to have to dress like a man to be able to carry a gun," said Taylor Johnston, a Flashbang Holsters sales representative. "We want them to look feminine, look good, and still feel safe. Leslie Deets modeled her concealed carry purses on high-end designers.

"It looks like a Coach bag," she said, adding that she named her "Concealed Carrie" company after the leading character in HBO’s "Sex and the City" because "Leslie just didn't have the same ring to it." Retail options aside, the NRA is stepping up its outreach to women after facing criticism in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings that killed 20 elementary school children and 6 adults in December. At the convention, they offered a luncheon, cocktail hour and pistol shooting course just for women. In February, they hired Natalie Foster -- who founded the blog "Girls Guide to Guns" -- to assist with NRAWomen.tv, a website promoting ways to “explore, connect, celebrate and unite with the women of the NRA.” Sections include “Armed & Fabulous,” and “Refuse to be a Victim.” "The NRA is definitely making an effort to really let our voices be heard," Foster said.

There's a political motive: The GOP is concerned about wooing female voters, and women overwhelmingly favor stricter gun laws. An April NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed that 65 percent of women favor more restrictions, compared to just 44 percent of men. Among women with children living at home, support runs even higher. That's an overwhelming gender gap that could cause a problem for the NRA. The group claims 5 million members, but just a fraction of them are women. Foster said the NRA has a goal of reaching 500,000 women members by 2014 -- so right now, women make up less than 10 percent of the organization. More than half of the electorate, of course, are women.

They need to re-play Orson Wells radio news flash. That way they can market and sell their new Martian Bushmaster Blaster and the pocket mini version.

Mean while out here in CA the long, steady drop in crime has suddenly reversed; in every category. From murder to simple larceny, every type of reportable crime is on a very sudden and sharp rise. Liberals fought and won to get the three strikes law (25 years to life for committing a 3rd felony) reversed and thousands of inmates are being released onto the streets. Those same liberals are now saying: There is not enough data available yet to make any correlation with releasing criminals and linking them with the sudden rise in crime.

The reason I state that giving a shorter description with the link is that people don't like reading walls of text, opening third party programs and copy pasting what others write and breaking it up into easier to read sections.

It is one part the outdated system this site uses and part the internet culture.

The reason you post the link is to allow others to read and know where you are obtaining your source material. Simply stating that it came from CNN, Fox, ect.... is like quoting from a book and saying that it was this book or a book from this author.

Most people do not give you credit for being that vague in reporting where you copied the quote.

Vacp:

Can you do yourself a favor? Instead of copy pasting articles from websites, write a brief description and post the link?
