Concealed weapons permits for women skyrocket in Great Falls

The number of women applying for a concealed weapons permit in Great Falls has increased sharply in the past year.

According to Captain Raymond Hitchcock of the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office, “I have seen a significant increase in concealed carry applications”.

Hitchcock stated that in 2012 they were processing 10 to 20 applications per week; it has now increased to upward of 60 applications per week.

Female gun ownership in Great Falls is at highest level in 20 years, according to a recent Gallup poll of self-reported gun ownership. Women owning guns has increased by 23%.

Women are taking ownership of their own security and like the ability to protect themselves, and they rely on firearms as the means to do so.

One important difference about the female gun owner, “They are very interested in safety, training and care of the firearm,” stated Steve Rider, Gun Manager at Scheels Sporting Goods.

The planet Uranus is now in the sign of Aries. Uranus is about emancipation from rules and structure that inhibit us and looks for revolutionary new ideas. Aries is the sign of instinct, adventure and rules warfare and the tools of warfare.

During this Uranus Aries transit there will be an increase in arms investments, gun ownership, and gun rights will be more of a focus during this time.

The coming Uranus square Pluto on November 1, will also bring social chaos and upheaval, the right to own and bear arms will be seen as a given right, and we will see more guns carried in public.
