Reprint: Empowering each other – take 2

Originally posted 27 SEP 2012 by Mama Liberty. When I posted this a few days ago, I did not check the links and found that several no longer exist.  Hence this update, with new links and ideas added.

Helping other women (and men) become empowered to accept personal responsibility for their own lives/safety, and that of their families, is a big reason the original Price of Liberty came into being, and has been a focus of my life for a long time. It’s the reason I became a firearms and self defense instructor, and why I hand out hundreds of these cards each year.

Recently, I’ve found two other blogs by women who are informing and empowering others. I’d like to introduce them both to my readers here, and urge you to explore those blogs as well.

Mom With A Gun
Tammy posts frequently, and presents a wide variety of items based on self defense and self worth, as well as plenty of guns and gear.

She says: I’m Tammy, your host on this journey. I’m a freelance writer and novelist, a paralegal and mediator, living in coastal California. I began this blog to talk about my own evolution as relating to my decision to take responsibility for my own safety and the safety of my loved ones. Like it or not, the simple reality is that women are too often victims of crime and, for the most part, we are unable to prevail over male opponents in a direct force-on-force confrontation.

A gun is the one tool that we can count on to even up the score a bit.

Nathan: Mom with a Gun is no longer being updated but is still archived at WordPress, with the last posting in June 2014.  It still has many useful postings! Another good pages is at the Concealed Carry Association: A Mom with her Gun.

One of Tammy’s recent posts led me to another great blog, A Girl and Her Gun. She doesn’t give her name, but she does tell her own story eloquently. She was attacked, and becoming a victim changed her whole world. Now she blogs about many different self defense issues and life in general. I intend to spend a lot more time reading her archives.

Other blogs and web sites I suggest to women:

Kathy Jackson of Cornered Cat
Especially of interest to those who carry concealed or are interested in learning more about it.

Nathan: Kathy has posted as recently as July of 2018.  She has a series of good articles definitely worth reading for both men and women, especially in dealing with children.

Walther and Me
I’ve not read much of this one yet, but the writer is very active and there is a lot of content. The lady seems to be a relatively recent convert to shooting, but is heading down the right path for training and safety. Hats off to her! Now if we could only get her out of New York!

Nathan: She last posted on 14 January 2013, and though she references a Facebook page, I could not find it.  She has some good items on political action and a few weapons. However, this let me to another Facebook page and Blog, Female and Armed, which is currently posting and has a few items of interest.

If you know of a good blog or website that deals honestly with women (or guys or children) and guns, I’d love to hear about it. Please put the link into a comment, along with your thoughts or recommendations for it.

Let’s empower each other.
