We are not victims
I was so sad to have heard about the tragic theater shooting in Aurora, CO, last night. The story in and of itself is horrifying, but when I learned that the gun laws in Aurora differ from elsewhere in the state (where my father lives), I was crushed. No one in the theater was allowed to have a gun, so the law-abiding movie goers did not even have a chance to defend themselves against the violent psychopath who continued to shoot indiscriminately, shooting a total of 71 people.
The Ladies of Liberty Alliance's mission is to educate and empower women in the liberty movement, and we think this fits in perfectly: We would like to announce that we are going to begin a nationwide project to educate and empower any woman who wants to learn how to safely operate a handgun and obtain a permit to carry it.
How you can help:
1) Are you an instructor? Do you know someone who is? Would they be willing to volunteer their time in order to help women obtain their permit to carry a handgun?
2) Are you a LOLA? Start a group, a club, or just hold an event. Bring your girlfriends on a field trip. Call your local range and set up a training. Encourage everyone to learn how to safely operate a handgun so that she may protect herself or her loved ones.
For questions or to offer your help, please email email@example.com
Our first training of this kind will take place September 22 outside of Arlington, VA. All attendees will learn all about handguns: How they work and how to use them if, heaven forbid, you should ever have to. Additionally, you'll get your concealed carry permit, which can be used in over half of these United States, under a reciprocity program between Virginia and other states.
