CBS Highlights Increase in Female Gun Enthusiasts

December 28th, 2011 9:33 AM

On Tuesday's The Early Show, CBS's Katrina Zish filed a full report on the trend toward more women becoming gun enthusiasts.

Last October, The Early Show notably ran a report documenting public opposition to gun control.

Co-anchor Chris Wragge and substitute co-anchor Rebecca Jarvis set up Tuesday's report: (Video below)

CHRIS WRAGGE: Well, the face of the American gun owner is changing. More women than ever are picking up rifles, shotguns and handguns, and target shooting is one of the fastest growing female sports.

REBECCA JARVIS: But looks can be deceiving. We're not talking "Dirty Harriet" here as Early Show contributor Katrina Zish found out.
