Grandmothers are tired of being victims.
Grandmothers Konnie Couch and Robin Willoughby were both robbed in 2011.
They responded by forming “Women Armed and Ready” (WAR), a group that trains women to carry guns and prepares them to shoot under pressure, because “they were tired of being victims and didn’t want to see others go through what they did.”
According to Cincinnati.com, Couch said, “The thing of it is, bad things happen to good people all the time, and, if something bad is going to happen, it’s going to happen without warning. It’s going to be very quick, and you’ve got to be prepared for it.
She said the main goal of WAR is “to get women trained and [in a position] where, if they have to… they would be able to react and save themselves.”
All WAR members have concealed carry licenses.
