Kudos to Actress Katherine Heigl For Practicing Responsible Gun Use

Kudos to Actress Katherine Heigl For Practicing Responsible Gun Use

Actress Katherine Heigl – best known for starring in 27 Dresses , Grey’s Anatomy, and The Ugly Truth – recently tweeted about her trip to the gun range to prepare for her role on NBC’s State of Affairs.

There hasn’t been much backlash for Heigl’s tweet.  Surprisingly , this is not the first time Heigl has gone to the gun range. In 2010, she reportedly did some target shooting while preparing for her role in the film One for the Money.

More women are becoming gun buyers, sellers, and Second Amendment activists. According to a September 2014 infographic called “The Changing Face of Today’s Target Shooter,” National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) found target shooting participation leaped from 34.4 million in 2009 to 40.8 million in 2012–a 6.4 million increase in participation. Of those 6.4 million new participants, 37% of target shooters were female.

It’s quite encouraging to see actress Katherine Heigl publicly promote real gun safety. Unlike the female gun-grabbers comprising Moms Demand Action (MDA), whose activities leave people more vulnerable to attack, women who promote true responsible gun use should be applauded.

Fellow females: don’t be afraid to shoot down cradle-to-grave paternalistic government and female victimhood!

I’ll have a more comprehensive post about the rise of female shooters while at SHOT Show in Las Vegas next week. Stay tuned!
