#MeToo: Women Who Shot Men in Self Defense

Women Who Shot Men in Self Defense

Published on December 15th, 2018

MYTH ONE: People, especially women, are not capable of defending themselves with a gun.

FACT: This sexist stereotype is objectively false. The hundreds of women documented in this book clearly were both physically and emotionally able to shoot someone in their self-defense and did.

MYTH TWO: People using a gun in self defense will more likely be killed by the bad guy.

FACT: There was only one example, out of over 1,400 reports, of the bad guy killing the person trying to defend herself.

MYTH THREE: People using a gun in self-defense, if they are not killed outright, will end up accidentally shooting themselves, a family member, or other innocent person.

FACT: Out of over 1,400 records, there were no instances of an accidental shooting when a gun was used in self-defense. On the contrary, the bad guy usually ended up shot and/or dead.

MYTH FOUR: Anyone shooting another person, even in self-defense, will end up in jail.

FACT: Again, no examples were found. In virtually every case, law enforcement investigating the shooting ruled it justifiable self-defense and no charges were filed.
