    Maybe she does not understand too much about gun yet,

    But, her articles read to be sort of pro gun owner to me. With the exception of comment from Browder. But, try read the "comments" on the article. She is being slammed for not knowing enough about firearms. Not sure if the one who call her an "idiot" in the comment section is a gun owner.

    I suspect that the repressive journalist is trying to disempower her.

    Progressive women like Ms. Shrum need to be encouraged in their activities.

    I hate getting hit in the head from hot revolver brass.

    Anyhow, good for Kimberly.

    At least there are a few journalists starting to emerge that have enough integrity to try to tell both sides of a story even if they lack expertise.

    While expertise is great, integrity is more important.

    Self-loading revovlers? Are those California legal?:uhoh: :D

    Are we sure that any of this actually happened? Journalists make stories up out of whole cloth all the time.

    Brass ejecting out of a revovler? Wow, if she really went to the range then wouldn't she at least get this part right?

    I call Bearthread on this.

    Doesn't matter. The media is all Bearthread anyway so might as well see some on our side for once rather than always against us.

    For a San Fran paper this is about as Pro 2A as you could ask for.

    And there is always a nugget of truth, even in the worst written articles.

    Since a relatively ignorant reporter wrote the story...

    Now, I can see us doing a coupla different things here - we can write the nice reporter about the cool story she wrote, or we can attack her because she doesn't know a revolver from a semi-auto. One of these actions will keep her, more or less, on our side. The other will pretty much guarantee that she'll start to think we're a bunch of loonies who shouldn't even be allowed bb guns...

    Sad thing is that I think I know which option most gun nuts would opt for... Sigh...

    This was my posted comment:

    Excellent article. I will not bash the context of the revolver and spent casing. I have shot at an indoor range and know full well that casings from adjacent lanes can fly into my area. We were not there to know if that is the case or if there was "artistic license" used. Doesn't matter. What does matter is the point of the article. Women, and anti-gun people in general, need to realize that arming yourself with the intention of defending yourself, or others, is necessary.

    I noted that one comment said violence creates violence. To this I offer the correction, proper training and use of a firearm WILL stop the violence. Your comment refers to those who retaliate, usually after the fact. In a SD situation, violence is already occuring. Defending yourself is not a creation of violence as a result, as the violence was already there.

    Additionally, I ask this, if someone broke into your home and you became Mr. Compliant, what would you allow the violent criminal to do? Will you let him rape your wife? Children? While you are trying to talk him out of harming you and your family, you would do nothing else? That is your choice, as given by the Constitution of the United States of America. I will fight back to protect my loved ones as well as my self. That is my right, as given by the Constitution of the United States of America.

    Again I say excellent article. Thank you for your courage to publish it. My hat is off to you.

    I guess I don't see how thats playing off fears as much as a reminder of the reality of life....would it be better to create a false sense of security?

    Thanks, buddy, now we are a bunch of agressive people who are about to snap. What happened to the skill aspect of shooting? Tension would have been a better choice of words to describe the healing powers of shooting.

    I'm just happy this article happened. While it may have a few anti biases, I'm happy more women in the Bay Area are getting handguns. That's the good thing. Let's focus on good. Expand it instead of criticizing it.

    cool

    Chicks with guns sounds good to me.
    Keep the compensating macho bastages inline.
    I am a firm supporter of women rights "especially when they are hot" the rights not just the chicks.
    Can anyone remember Annie Oakley I know my accuracy isn't that good even with a .22
