Here’s a great blog post about taking your personal safety into consideration and stepping up to owning a gun. Written from a single woman’s perspective. Thoroughly good read and full of relevant information.
In my previous post, I talked about the different ways that I’ve found to feel safer in my home and community. One of those ways was purchasing a gun. This is, of course, a very personal decision. It is not a decision you should rush into.
If the answer is yes, then you should consider it. If not, just don’t. I would highly recommend a book called The Cornered Cat. This book is from a woman’s perspective of owning a gun, and many considerations you should make.
