Has anyone else noticed that guns are appearing on TV and the movies in roles other than a bad guy shooting up the place? What I've noticed even more is the person behind the gun is often a woman. In addition to the recent article about girls and guns in movies. I noticed the following: The Army commerical where the girl was going to qualify with the M-16. (whatever happend to that?) On Fear Factor the other night one of the contests involved shooting an AR-15. Two of the contestents were girls. The host introduced the challenge by rapid firing about 20 rounds through it. Tonight on JAG they had a lady officer qualifying with the M-16. Hopefully this trend continues. It sure beats that anti-gun crap we were seeing when Clinton was in office getting blown by the Million Moms.

The idea of girls with guns scares me. If my wife had acess to my guns and knew how to use them I would not last more than two months max.

The timing of this couldn't be any better. Showing "assult rifles" being used in a non-violent fun/competative way on TV, making them appear more mainstream, with the 2002 elections right away the corner. Guess what, the NRA is pushing for the 2004 AW ban sunset. Read about it here [url]http://www.gomemphis.com/mca/midsouth_news/article/0,1426,MCA_1497_1097238,00.html[/url] Let me remind you again that the 2002 election will control what happens to the AW ban. If the anti's don't get their butts kicked, they will certainly make it an issue in 2004. If they do get stomped, they won't want to touch it right before the elections and it will expire. So make sure you get out and help a pro-gun candidate and make sure to vote.

according to martina mcbride, yeah! i tell all of my girl friends who don't know that i'm into shooting and collecting firearms. i always wait till they get to know be a little bit so that they know that normal everyday people own firearms and aren't crazy with them. i think that little bit does a LOT to dispel the irresponsible/crazy/psychotic/nutcase myth about gunowners.

In the media, it goes along with the recent trend in "women who kick butt," which I think started with Ripley in [i]Alien[/i]. Look at all the shows with serious armed women these days. Great role-models. Hopefully it's spreading to real-life. We need new shooters. Us aging white males are dying off, and there ain't many new shooters filling the ranks behind us. Plus the obvious bonus of women who, being familiar with firearms, won't fall for obvious bu**s^%t put out by anti-gun groups - they'll know better. And in my experience, women don't [b]like[/b] to be lied to.

It is just a fad started by the Dark Angel show. Now that it's ratings have fallen off and other carbon copy shows like Alias soon to follow, some other trend will come along and within a year no one will remember "girls with guns" being "cool".

No. Max on Dark Angel is anti-gun. She never picks up a weapon and uses it.

I will second that. You can do just about anything you want with a good woman as long as you are honest. Lie once and you are scum for life. We definitely need to educate this segment of the population, so that they realize they are being lied to.

Instead of producing "Girls Gone Wild" we should start a series called "Girls Gone Wild With Firearms".

Saw it last night. I think on Bravo of all networks. Watch for the new Jennifer Lopez movie. Typical chick-beat-on-by-domineering-male movie. Twist is that she gets self-defense training. Think it will involve firearms? I bet she does the Dark Angel thing. It would be refreshing for her to take the realistic way, and even the odds with a firearm, CCW class and license. As for _my_ fiance, I was in the basement plinking away with my new Beeman and my she came down and started bitchin because she has this beautiful Romanian SAR-2 and we haven't gone shooting in a couple of months (we've been working on the house). Who am I to argue? I turned over the Beeman and made a couple of promises I intend to keep.

that was said half tongue-in-cheek. one of her latest songs, [i]When God-fearin' women get the blues[/i] starts out like this: [i]Lock up your husbands Lock up your sons Lock up you whiskey cabinets Girls, lock up your guns[/i] needless to say that's my favorite line in the whole song. she's fairly conservative (based on some of the themes in her songs) but i don't know how deep or wide that conservatism runs, politically or just religiously. and i don't know if she wrote that line because it rhymed or because she really doesn't see a problem (as she shouldn't) with owning firearms, anybody, even women.
