Amazing Women: Sharpshooter

Let's raise a glass to Annie Oakley, a female sharpshooter in a world of male sharpshooters.

I'm a big proponent of Second Amendment rights, in part because women do not have the same upper-body strength as men and a gun can mean the difference between life and death if a woman is attacked. And as Ronald Reagan said:

“The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small 
person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all.” ~Ronald Reagan


  1. B"H
    Mediator Seeks Jewess for a Jew

    I seek a mate for my friend. She should be religious, wanting to take her man to greater spiritual heights as both scale up their commitments to Torah and mitzvot. I play the role of "shadchan" (mediator) at no charge. If I feel it worthy I'll put both in contact. My friend knows nothing of this.

    Her minimum requirements: She's a proud Jew; Trusts G-d and believes in divine providence; Rejects the compromise in the "conservative" or "reform" spin; Lights Shabbos candles; Younger than he is; Healthy; Health-minded; Fit and willing to relocate.

    My friend runs a successful business in Northeast suburbia. He's 43, 5' 9"; Clean-shaven; Never married; American-bred. Visited Israel, but speaks only English. Exercises, is politically conservative, has common sense. He's friendly, upright, gentlemanly and won't waste time. Has will-power. Does not overeat. He became attuned to orthodox spirituality several years ago. He admires Chabad and its ideology. He dons tefillin daily and attends Torah lectures.

    Are you, or do you know, such a lady? Tell me about her. Email me at Please edit your letter a few times before you finally send it. Be honest.

  2. NO! You are not a frum feminist. You're not a feminist and you're certainly not frum. You're a self centered pseudo-intellectual who wrote a foolish article defending being a frum women and an even more foolish article insulting 52% of orthodox Jews because of your own personal failures. As a not so smart person once said if you disagree with me you are brainwashed.
