  • Both sides of gun control issue turn to women as spokespeople and symbols

    The Washington Post - 02/04/2013

    Students of the decades-long gun debate said there is a clear public relations advantage for the NRA in talking about guns as a women’s issue.

    “Unlike men, who may be viewed as having this self-interest of maintaining their guns for sport or as a form of aggression, women are seen as purely concerned about self-protection and safety,” said James Alan Fox, a professor of criminology, law and public policy at Northeastern University.
