Welcome to NRA Women’s week in review! At the top of our lineup this week is our announcement that, due to ongoing uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits have been rescheduled. We can’t wait to see you there!

Calling all NRA Moms: Are you looking forward to your child’s first hunt? Contributor Jo Deering tackles the six blunders that some parents make that can turn a kid off hunting for good.

Speaking of NRA Moms, if you’re planning on taking your family for a photo with Santa this year, we have a suggestion for one to avoid. A mall Santa said what to a kid?

Whether or not you have kids, chances are you’re very interested in self-defense. Most defensive shooting schools focus on teaching you to square up to a target.

Last, but not least, we’re reminded that the 2020 elections aren’t over. As both of Georgia’s elections for the U.S. Senate head toward a January runoff election, it’s important to look at where the remaining candidates stand on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. As neither candidate reached the 50% threshold Georgia requires to win the seat, the runoff election will now be held on January 5, 2021. Georgians need to show up en masse to make their voices heard in this election, as well as in the race between Sen. David Perdue (R) and Jon Ossoff (D). These elections are absolutely critical toward defending our freedom. Click here for the full rundown.
