  •  Yet You Didn't Challenge (0+ / 0-)

    the claim that women are a very receptive market when only about 10 percent of women own firearms at all--see GSS over time.  

    It's hard to take the RKBA clown show seriously when you get offended by reality.  

    •  10% of a population is a market any business... (1+ / 0-)

      would be quite pleased with.  I'd guess you don't understand commerce.

      If you aren't offended by blatant bigotry, I can only respond with: "Why the hell aren't you?!"

      •  10% isn't the Handgun Market (0+ / 0-)

        That's percent of women owning any firearm.   Your notion that women are clamoring for hanguns is ludicrous and not supported by any data.

        What is bigoted in the statement you responded to?  That southern women own more guns?  I don't understand how that's a controversial statement.

          And if you don't see the implied aspersions in the comment, I doubt any explanation I can give will clarify it for you.

            = I don't know about pink, but women are a very receptive market for small handguns for self defense.

            Yet, only a small proportion of women own handguns and even with all guns its around 10% of women.  

            That's not a receptive market.  It's you projecting your personal obsession and subculture onto the culture as a whole.  

            ===And if you don't see the implied aspersions in the comment, I doubt any explanation I can give will clarify it for you.

            What is the implied aspersion?  That southerners are more likely to own guns?  Is that an aspersion now?  Or is it a fact quite consistently shown in every survey on gun ownership?

            BTW, I don't know of any good studies of the percent of women who believe in alien abduction, but the percent surely rivals the number of women who own handguns which is tiny.  You should apologize to decembersue.  She is almost certainly correct.
