How would you feel about a WOMAN with a GUN?Page 1 of 26    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26)
I think if a woman owns a gun for self protection, that is fine as long as she is licensed to have it and keeps it properly and safely stored.
Of course, if she is emotionally unstable or a drug addict or alcoholic, then she shouldn't have a gun because her judgement can't be trusted.

If she told me too soon, I would think that she was threatening me/didn't trust me.

Message 16, if you are a cop, I think it is your obligation to carry your gun while off duty, unless you are going drinking or something. Who knows when you might see a crime, and cops are never REALLY off duty.

Only problem would be if she had a nicer gun than me. Envy is not a good quality in new relationships.

Seriously, I think a shooting date would be cool. But remember people, always use protection. You wouldn't want to damage your hearing.

Every real girlfriend I have it's always been very important to me to keep her safe, so I always end up buying them a bottle of pepper spray, for when I'm not around, for peace of mind.

.....but....I'm more comfortable being in burning pain after calling her mother fat, than I am being shot and killed....so just in case....i'm gonna say let's stick with the non lethal protection.

I live in Australia and really don't understand the need for guns. We have shooters (the roo population here needs culling at times) but other than professionals/farmers... I just can't understand the need for it. I'd be horrified if my partner had a gun too.

My last girlfriend had a hand gun and it really didn't bother me. She kept it locked, unloaded, and the ammunition in a separate location. I understood her reason as she was thinking about entering law enforcement at one point. She had also been living alone as a single woman for many years and liked the feeling of having protection.
That said, no way would I be with a woman who didn't take the same safety precautions. I have kids and I don't want any guns stored out in the open, or with ammunition near or in them.

To the posts about home security, I'm trying to figure out how you will get to your gun, get it out of the cabinet or the trigger lock off, and load your weapon in time to defend yourself against someone breaking down your door. Assuming you are storing your gun in a safe manner. Just doesn't make sense to me.

As for a female clone carrying a gun, it would depend on the reason. Off duty cop, sure. Public figure or maybe had death threats or a stalker? Sure. Likes feeling the warmth of her weapon and the smell of hot lead? I'm running the other way!!!!

It's major plus if a woman knows how to handle a firearm. Even more-so if she requests to be seated facing the entrance when we go out to dinner. ;)

I would not have a problem with it at all. Being a retired law enforcement officer, an ex-Marine & raised in mostly rural country settings, I grew up with weapons of all sorts around.

Yes, there are countries that have never allowed their citizens to own firearms & thus many do not have the problems that other countries do with illegal guns. There in lies the biggest misconception. ILLEGAL firearms are a serious problem, not only in the USA, but other places as well! The vast majority of legal gun owners never have occasion to use them except for recreation, hunting or other legitimate uses. Like self defense, RARELY!

However, since firearms have been a part of life in the United States since it's conception, taking away people's right to own them is only begging for trouble! The criminal element is never going to give up theirs, (they don't register theirs!). Henceforth, if the citizenry are denied the right to own at least a modicum of the firepower arrayed against them, they are merely easy prey for the lawless ones who still have them!

Personally, I wish the white man had not brought firearms to this continent & used them to kill my ancestors & steal their land in the first place! It happened though. To deny that would be foolish. Just as denying that there are a lot of bad people in this world, armed to the teeth & ready & willing to use those arms for evil would be foolish.

I too live in a small town where we don't feel the need to lock our doors. I can assure you that there are reasons for that. We have two things that the bad guys don't seem to be comfortable around. That being "Dogs & Guns". Also, everyone knows everyone around them & looks out for their neighbors interests as well as their own.

If you live in such a place, or in a country where you do not have the problems that some face, consider yourself lucky, but don't jump too quickly to judge that which you know little or nothing about, please. "Walk a mile in the other man's moccasins before you judge his beliefs". Then if you don't agree with his viewpoint; well, heck, you'll be a mile away with a new pair of moccasins.

So, if I meet a lady with a gun, I'm going to make sure she knows how to use it safely & responsibly, before we go hunting together.

Live long & prosper Y'all. SEMPER FI.

I've owned a gun since 1983 or so.....a police revolver, smith & Wesson - model 29 -38 special.......it's a good weight for me, I don't circle for quite some time.....I love target shooting

My ex husband was very prone to pulling out a gun to settle an argument. I have never even considered it.....and I will most likely never get a concealed weapons permit, but it does feel reassuring that I can protect myself here at home if I am forced to....

BTW, I used to be an excellent shot, it's been awhile since I've been target shooting, hopefully I haven't lost my skills.....

Not too crazy about it. I don't have a gun. Not a hunter or target shooter so I don't need a gun. I sure don't care for women with guns, unless she's in law enforcement for a career.

As long as it is legally owned. It's the illegal ones that are carried by criminals. It certainly does help a girl protect herself from a criminall brute!

Has no-one ever seen "Jackie Brown"?
Chicks with guns are cool!
On the other hand, a drunk or an idiot with a loaded weapon or with ammo nearby is an accident waiting to happen. As long as she is responsible, sign me up, officer!

My 71 year old mother shoots better than most men. She’s never killed anyone that I know of. My little sister killed 2 Iraqis in a POW camp during desert storm with her bare hands when 5 of them tried to rape her. (it still bothers her)

This is so silly hearing all these “I wouldn’t ever date anyone that even looked at a gun” people. Guns don’t kill people, bad people kill people.

Yeah, I’ve got guns and you should too. If it’s a big deal I’ll loan you one till you can get your own.

How do you feel about women with guns?


Would probably be a plus with me.


how long should she wait to tell a man that she has a gun?


As long as she wants to. Doesn't need to tell me at all if she doesn't want to.

If someone wants to hurt you, a gun is no big deal, she could just as easily do you in with a baseball bat in the middle of the night while you are asleep. In other words, there is not a single documented case in the US of the murder rate dropping once guns were outlawed. In fact, it tends to go the opposite direction because the people who give up their guns are the law abiding. The criminals keep theirs anyway and now they know that the rest of the population is unarmed. I think gun laws come from police labor unions who are worried about getting shot at when they break into the wrong house in the course of a botched arrest.

I've got to add that in most "domestics" that end in death, guns are the, er, smoking gun. usually used by men against women, and by some women as self-defence. I'd be asking the date, male or female, why they need to carry arms in everyday life? Scary.

Alcohol doesn't kill people, people kill people. Otherwise, all taverns would be slaughterhouses.

Absolutely not. The first thing I think of immediately is that if she has a gun, she must be probably a very bitter person, some extremist, some self-delusioned person or just simply a sick freak if she has a gun. Now there are obviously some situations I may understand, like if she is living in a remote area and she has to hunt to get food on the table, then....ok, or if she is in a situation where she knows the guy she is seeing/dating owns and has a gun with him also, then that too would be understandable. Also offcourse if she is in the military or in the police force, then that is also understandable. But otherwise, it is a total red flag, and yes I would get the police on the situation. It's good to play it safe. No one should be walking around with a gun or some weapon like that.
