It seems that every time the NRA comes to town the bigots come out of the woodwork:
Though gun sales to females increased significantly in recent years, Piendl said, “Sales to women remain the largest untapped growth market in the industry.”
The industry is unlikely to successfully tap that market until it conquers the pesky preconceived notions that likely turn off many females to the idea of gun ownership. Women likely won’t consider packing pistols if they are concerned that:
— Spending several hundred dollars on a serviceable handgun might leave them without enough money to get the full treatment at that next visit to the day spa.
— Carrying a gun in a small purse would leave less room for more important items, such as lipstick or compact.
— The baggy clothing required to successfully conceal most holsters would make them appear frumpy.
— Gunpowder residue might stain the new Karen Scott blouse they just bought at Macy’s.
— The gunpowder smell when the weapon is fired could totally overwhelm the Chanel they’re wearing.
— Most firearm accessories come only in one boring color: black.
— Target practice earplugs simply aren’t sexy.
