Don't be a victim... women are taking action.
Tanisha Moner had a gun pointed at her twice in her life.
She stated that once by two strangers who kidnapped, robbed, and sexually assaulted her when she was just seventeen years old. Then again when she was robbed as she worked at a restaurant.
Any woman would find these experiences traumatic and these experiences would leave many with a fear of guns. But she faced her fears and went to a gun/carry class at a local gun range. Facing her fear was the first step.
"Succumbing to your own fear is the only thing that can stop you from doing anything you want to do," Moner told the Washington Free Beacon.
She also explains she decided to become an NRA-certified instructor.
Last weekend she took part in a basic handgun safety training event where she helped to train 1,938 Detroit women—more than double the event's 2019 attendance. Way to go, Tanisha!
Fifty women attended the first event. It enjoyed steady growth, peaking at a record 814 women in 2019. Tanisha stated, "I had no idea that women would respond in a way that they did. They showed up in one wave and that wave did not abate until the evening," he said. "They just kept coming."
I live for this event. I really do," Tanisha Moner said. "There's nothing like seeing a woman pull the trigger on a firearm for the very first time. It's like a light just goes off in her. It's a moment of enlightenment."
