The Second Amendment is important for the safety of every American, but it’s particularly important for the safety of women. At CPAC 2017, Townhall.com editor Katie Pavlich moderated a panel called “Armed and Fabulous: The New Normal” featuring real women whose lives have been impacted and saved by their right to bear arms.
Kimberly Corban is a pro-gun rape survivor whose challenge of Barack Obama’s position on gun control went viral last January. She’s become one of the loudest female voices for the Second Amendment since her horrific attack.
Ashlee Lundvall is an avid hunter who lives with her family in Wyoming. She suffered a spinal injury as a teenager and is confined to a wheelchair, but that hasn’t stopped her: she was Ms. Wheelchair USA in 2013 and actively works to empower disabled hunters and shooters.
Antonia Okafor is the Southwest Director of Students for Concealed Carry. As an African-American she’s often criticized for her support for the Second Amendment, but she believes that minorities especially deserve the right to protect themselves.
Kristi McMains is a lawyer from Kentucky whose concealed carry pistol saved her life in 2016 when a man attacked her in a parking lot with a knife. Her NRA ad in support of Donald Trump was named one of the top five campaign ads of the 2016 election.
