Fifty Women From Each State Gather To Rally For Second Amendment Rights At Capitol Hill

Fifty women from a gun rights group, each representing their own state, are marching to Capitol Hill to meet with U.S. lawmakers in July to discuss and advocate Second Amendment rights as a part of the DC Project.

“Women often have a stronger impact when speaking about the Second Amendment since we break the stereotypical idea of a gun owner,” said Dianna Muller, the creator of the D.C Project. Muller is a 3-gun competitor who said that the goal for the project is to give a voice to an unknown demographic of gun advocates.

The majority of gun owners in the United States are white males, but according to a study by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the amount of women that are return buyers is on the rise.

Muller and A Girl & a Gun Women’s Shooting League worked together to create the D.C Project. AG & AG is an organization for only girls and women in the shooting community to empower them with training and education.

“We have volunteers from all over the country who are gathering to raise awareness for the changing face of the American gun owner,” Robyn Sandoval, the executive director of A Girl & a Gun Women’s Shooting league told Guns.com.

The project event is being held July 7 and July 8 in Washington D.C. A rally will be held on the West Front Lawn on the last day.
