Female Gun Market?
Megan McArdle has some interesting thoughts on the Supreme Court’s decision today overturning DC’s handgun ban. As she readily admits, you can get better legal analysis elsewhere. This, however, is a unique contribution to the debate:
There is a distressing lack of attention to the female market in gun companies. I want something with accuracy and stopping power, but also, an attractive exterior casing that easily integrates with my other accessories. This doesn’t seem unreasonable.
If it works for shoes and handbags, why not guns?
It’s well documented that most men need just two guns, a handgun for protection and close combat, and a rifle or shotgun for longer range defense and hunting. A woman, though, would need one of every variety, including several black handguns that, to an untrained male eye, look exactly the same.
