Paxton Quigly, author of Armed Female, and Women and Guns magazine published Sunny James, discuss how women can defend themselves with firearms.

James explains the positive response to her publication which has helped spread information about safe and effective gun use. Quigly and James then discuss the traditionally male dominated world of guns, but how they have made firearms part of the women's movement.
