We reported earlier this week that the number of female and minority gun owners is continuing to grow as well as the number of women who are obtaining concealed carry permits.
This story from guns.com says that one Georgia-based firearms instructor wants to make sure black women who own guns know how to use them, and she won't stop until she's trained a cool million.
The story says Marchell Tigner, owner of Trigger happy Firearm Instruction in Georgia, is a survivor of sexual assault and domestic abuse. She has made it her personal mission to provide training to 1 million women.
"It's important, especially for black women, to learn how to shoot. We need to learn how to defend ourselves," Tigner says in the story. She noted that black women are statistically more likely to become victims of domestic violence.
