AUSTIN, TX, U.S. — A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) provides a critical and rapidly growing demographic to the roster of pro-Second Amendment, pro-gun voters for the 2020 election cycle: Women. Through education, outreach, and inclusion, AG & AG brings new families into responsible firearms ownership. A survey of more than 6,000 members reveals advocacy involvement and emerging industry trends.
“As the cornerstone of women’s training in America, AG & AG’s survey proves that women are poised to make a difference at the polls,” states Robyn Sandoval, Executive Director of AG & AG. “When women learn about gun ownership, they share it with their families and friends. The exponential growth of ladies seeking education, purchasing firearms and related products, and learning about Second Amendment advocacy has a long-term impact on their communities,” she added.
A Girl & A Gun boasts a diverse membership comprising all political ideologies with a common interest in firearms. The diversity is one characteristic that helps new gun owners feel comfortable in the community. A former anti-gunner herself, Sandoval says, “We have members of all political parties and affiliations, and we are able to find common ground and advocate together for the protection of gun rights. Our inclusive culture creates a welcoming environment, and it is one of the reasons that AG & AG continues to grow at a record pace, particularly with first-time gun owners.”
With the 2020 election cycle less than 100 days away, the organization is encouraging members to vote. “AG & AG stands at the ready to promote the importance of going to the polls this year, particularly to protect and preserve the Second Amendment,” according to Sandoval. “We will continue to introduce thousands of more women from across the United States to the rewards of responsible gun ownership. Encouraging pro-Second Amendment voters and families to vote is simply another way we contribute to the cause,” she says.
