It’s important, especially for black women, to learn how to shoot. We need to learn how to defend ourselves.

Black women picking up firearms for self-defense
[The reason given for it being especially important for black women is that black women are more likely to be victims of domestic violence.
This is an AP story and is an extremely important trend:
It’s hard to find definitive statistics on gun ownership, but a study by the Pew Research Center released this month indicated that just 16 percent of “non-white women” identified themselves as gun owners, compared with about 25 percent of white women. Other Pew surveys in recent years have shown a growing acceptance of firearms among African-Americans: In 2012, one found that less than a third of black households viewed gun ownership as positive; three years later, that number had jumped. By then, 59 percent of black families saw owning guns as a necessity.
If the advocates for gun rights get the African-Americans on board we will politically crush the anti-gun advocates.—Joe]
