Inside The Story: Gun Toting Girls
(KUTV) A group of women are packing some serious heat and they say it's
all about safety. They are members of the organization named The
Well-Armed Women.

On the second Tuesday of every month you will
find Tiffany Dvorak, 39, and Sandra Shumway, 31, at the shooting range.
In fact, once a month at Get Some Guns and Ammo in Murray half of the
entire shooting range is taken by women.

The latest chapter of
The Well Armed Women in this area opened in January with one member and
grew to 35 women in one month. Chapter Leader Lacey Ridley is interested
in helping women defend themselves. "We power and equip women in
self-defense." she said.
   
Class member Tiffany Dvorak joined
the group to learn skills to help protect herself. She said, "Women need
to take care of themselves. They need to learn how to be the first line
of defense for themselves and their children."

This class is
not all about shooting; it starts with a one hour training meeting where
they learn everything from gun safety to home safety. There are 181
chapters across the country with six here in Utah. Two more are starting
up soon; one in St. George, another in Tooele.
