quote of the day

"The gun is the great equalizer. It is the only tool that puts a 100 pound woman on the same level as a 250 pound rapist. Women’s self defense courses, emergency call boxes, and mace cannot compare to the power of a gun in a woman’s hands."
-SGT Jarhead

Just finished reading One Second After and there is a quote in it where the dad is telling his 16yo daughter what to do if someone comes to the house - he leaves her with a shot gun and then tells her "the most dangerous thing is a gun in the hands of a woman that wont use it"....

I love your quote!

Pearls, Thanks. All I can really take credit for is reading a lot of different blogs and shamelessly stealing what I think are good quotes.

I like what you said also. It is very true.

Truth be told, I "borrowed" that from somewhere else. If I had known who actually said it, I would have cited the quote. This is kind of my version of what I can remember of it. It might have been a Jeff Cooper quote.
