You won’t find grandmothers Konnie Couch and Robin Willoughby at any Moms Demand Action rallies. Where you will find them is at the range with their women’s gun group, Women Armed and Ready.

According to Cincinnati.com,

Both women have concealed carry licenses and carry their handguns with them at all times. And they know how to use them.

Couch and Willoughby are the founders of a new local group, Women Armed and Ready, or WAR. After both women were robbed around 2011, they decided they were tired of being victims and didn’t want to see others go through what they did. After two years of development, they held their first meeting May 6.

“The thing of it is, bad things happen to good people all the time, and, if something bad is going to happen, it’s gonna happen without warning,” Couch said. “It’s gonna be very quick, and you’ve gotta be prepared for it.”

It’s great to see these women taking responsibility for their own personal safety and training regularly.

It’s common knowledge at this point that women are the fastest growing group of gun owners right now. The elderly have always seemed to be gun owners. This is because nothing can level the playing field against a younger, stronger attacker than a firearm.

Well done ladies!
