OZARK, Mo. – The culture of gun ownership in America is changing.
“We have been in business for five years and we have seen a steady growth in the women in the shooting industry,” said A.G. Paul, owner of Sound of Freedom shooting range.
Kelly McGinnis says she didn’t get into it to target a trend. She just wants to feel safer.
“There are times maybe you would find yourself in a situation where it would just equalize the situation,” said McGinnis.
“I certainly wouldn’t want to stir anything up, but I would like to be able to defend myself if I needed, and I hope I never do,” she said.
Owners of Sound of Freedom shooting range in Ozark say women just like Kelly make up about 30 percent of their memberships and about 40 percent of their conceal carry class participants.
“There isn’t a day that goes by where we don’t have someone come in that’s looking to get into the shooting sport,” said Paul.
That’s not just here in the Ozarks. National surveys show gun sales to women are on the rise all over the United States. In a new study commissioned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, more than half of the women participating in the study said they intend to purchase at least one firearm in the next 12 months.
