Women with Guns

The right to bear arms is enshrined by the 2nd amendment of the United States constitution and many Americans take that right very seriously.One portion of the population buying more guns than ever are women. Marketing campaigns play on womens fears for themselves and their families. We meet the women who are arming themselves and their families, including teaching their children, some as young as 5, to shoot.

Some shoot for fun, some are scared and some are preparing for the apocalypse but they all love their guns.
