Guns: The ‘Great Equalizer’ for Women
In a March article  (which PJ Media covered here ), Rolling Stone’s Tim Dickinson claimed:
To target urban and suburban women, gunmakers have adopted a two-pronged marketing strategy. One: Feminizing the weapons by dressing them up in hot pink. Two: Marketing powerful guns to women as the only surefire protection against sexual and violent predators. Shooting Industry Magazine publishes a column called “Arms and the Woman,” which advises that “every gun store should have at least one pink gun on display.” This is a crowded field: Sig Sauer offers a ladies’ version of its conceal-carry “Mosquito” pistol with a “pink-coated polymer frame” that it calls “the ideal choice for hours of shooting fun.” In a similar vein, GunGoddess.com sells a kit to trick out an assault weapon with a pink hand guard, pistol grip and butt stock — transforming an AR-15 into something that looks like it belongs at a Hello Kitty convention.
The implication was that women are such fickle, emotional creatures that something as simple as a pink frame is all it takes to woo female shooters, and further, that anyone so easily manipulated should never own one. Had any conservative made such a statement, he — or she — would have been harshly denounced as a misogynist.
Fifteen-year-old Morrigan Sanders, who was pictured in the Rolling Stone article — she was never contacted by Dickinson — said:
The Second Amendment is a way to defend ourselves personally as well as against an oppressive government.
PJ Media contacted two other female shooters to discuss the issue: Gail Sanders , mother of Morrigan and wife of Baen  author Michael Z. Williamson ; and Regis Giles, owner and creator of Girls Just Wanna Have Guns , a blog devoted to the Second Amendment and women.
