Second Amendment Sisters get good coverage by the Boston Globe

Sisters in arms: Growing number of women are using guns for self-defense -- and fun A typical Saturday at the local shooting club with a branch of the Second Amendment sisters.

Members are portrayed target shooting with 9mm handguns, trap or skeet shooting (the article isn't clear) or generally enjoying a Saturday with friends.

Some history of the organization is presented, but the article doesn't mention that it was formed in direct opposition to the (so called) Million Mom March. On the whole it is a well rounded article discussing the largely male culture at gun clubs, why women shoot (for self-defense and for fun). The article also gives some background on the various members; the come from all backgrounds. [h/t KABA]
