More power to these ladies. Who can blame them for wanting to be able to defend themselves?

A new women’s gun advocacy group highlights the popularity of Texas campus carry

Last month marked the anniversary of a major victory for the concealed carry movement in Texas – and the debut of a pro-gun group for women of all colors.

“Showing women that it is okay for them to carry a firearm is one of the best ways that we can help empower women,” Antonia Okafor, founder of the campus carry advocacy group EmPOWERed, told The College Fix in a phone interview.

In August 2016 the state began allowing students at four-year universities to carry concealed handguns on campus. The law permits anyone who is 21 years old and who has a valid concealed carry permit to bring their firearms with them to university grounds.

The law recently expanded to encompass Texas community colleges, as well. And a federal judge recently struck down a legal challenge to the law brought by three professors, strengthening campus carry advocates’ position.

At the same time, a new voice in Texas is rising up and helping to drive a movement of women protecting themselves by exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Okafor’s women’s carry group EmPOWERed debuts this fall at the University of North Texas. Coinciding with the one-year anniversary of the state’s campus carry law, Okafor’s activism suggests the growing popularity of carrying firearms on campuses.
