A Fairly Positive Story on Second Amendment Sisters

2nd Amendment Sisters LogoPortsmouth Herald Local News: Women with weapons On the whole this is a good story about the Second Amendment Sisters, and a couple of New England chapters (New Hampshire and Maine to be specific) and the classes they teach.
Making women less-easy targets is one of Coffey's goals as New Hampshire's Second Amendment Sisters coordinator, a position she assumed in December. One reason women are joining the local chapter, for which Coffey doesn't have membership numbers, is to participate in women-only gun instruction classes.
The Maine chapter got started recently because the coordinator could find no seminar closer than Massachusetts.

The one problem with this article is a deliberate misquote (some what of a misquote anyway) from the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
Pistol shooting has become [Coffey's] favorite, while launching a mission to protect the Second Amendment -- the right for a "well-regulated militia" and to keep and bear arms.
Of course the Second Amendment protects the right of the People to keep and bear arms, but saying so appears to be too much for the anti-gunners at this paper.

On the whole, even with this statement, this is a pretty good article on the Second Amendment Sisters. Like so many news articles, it doesn't provide contact information. If you are interested in finding out about the Second Amendment Sisters and any activities in your area you should consult their website. "Self-defense is a basic human right."
