Women with guns
There are approximately over 280 million licensed firearms in the USA. Female owners seem to be more and more common. Today, 1 in 5 Americans own at least one fire arm; a phenomenon which didn’t exist 30 years ago. The right to carry a gun is supported by the 2nd amendment of the Constitution, established in 1791 by James Madison after the War of Independence. Free circulation of guns was one of the first laws put in place by the revolutionaries. Even if the time of war has ended, for many Americans, carrying a firearm remains an inalienable right, as important as freedom of religion or expression.
