Women gun owners hosted a rally called The DC Project.
A non-partisan group of pro-gun women gathered last week in Washington D.C. to meet with legislators. The rally, called The DC Project, focused on the 2nd amendment and how it effects women in particular.
Started by Dianna Muller, The DC Project also employed the help of A Girl & A Gun women's shooting league. Together the group hopes to bring awareness to the importance of women and their Second Amendment right to defend themselves.
Muller started planning the rally as a way to "encourage women shooters to meet with their representatives in Congress in order to give politicians a direct connection to the fastest growing demographic of gun owners."
According to a press release, Muller states, "The Second Amendment is part of the United States Constitution and does not belong to one party. Female gun owners are diverse and have individualized stories and accounts of why this amendment is so important to them."
The DC Project rally included plans to meet on the West Senate Lawn of the U.S. Capitol on Friday, June 16. Speakers for the event included Muller, Nikki Goeser, Amanda Johnson, Dakota Overland and others.
