Worried About Violence: Chicago Women Joint Gun Club

France 24 reports Chicago area women concerned about violence are are joining a gun club, and our community.

Briefly quoting the France 24 report:

Crowder is perhaps not the typical patron of a gun club.

But she is one of seven women learning to safely handle firearms at a shooting range in a suburb of Chicago, a city wracked by gun violence and a soaring murder rate.

Seven women learning to make themselves and those around them safe is a start on getting the Chicago area’s violent crime down to the current American norm, approximately one quarter of Chicago’s current violence rate.

The longest journey begins with a single step – and Chicago needs 1.4 million gun owners to get back where they were 60 years ago.
