According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 27 percent of American women keep a gun in the house and 37.6 million females either own or have rapid access to guns.
This is the classic title that explains why.
When Paxton Quigley's "Stayin' Alive: Armed and Female" was published in 1989, it created an uproar. The media were shocked and horrified, yet irresistibly intrigued by its unabashed call for women to take up arms. She was profiled on "60 Minutes," in the Wall Street Journal, in Playboy and in the L.A. Times and appeared on every national TV news show.
Coming from a liberal, Midwestern, anti-gun background, Paxton Quigley turned around when her best friend was raped one morning in her home in Los Angeles. After witnessing the physical and psychological damage, Quigley vowed not to let it happen to her. She reviewed her options and decided to learn how to shoot a handgun for her own self-defense.
She went on to become a spokeswoman for Smith & Wesson and over the years has traveled the world teaching thousands of women how to safely handle and shoot handguns.
