In Michigan, where I did my research, men gun carriers outnumbered women by a ratio of 4 to 1.
The LA Times just posted one of my op-eds on masculinity and guns, looking at one (but not by any stretch the only) explanations for why men carry guns. You can find it here.
But, women gun carriers are increasing in number, and I’ve written about them in a piece I published a few months ago for Contexts magazine. Check it out here.
