As senior citizens continue to be a driving force behind record firearm sales, one gun-toting senior says, “My friends like to knit, I like to shoot.”
Every Tuesday the doors of Frontier Justice gun shop in Lee’s Summit, Missouri open to a morning crowd of seniors who are there to shot and hone their ability to defend their own lives and the lives of loved ones, should they be attacked.
According to the Kansas City Star, Frontier Justice president Bren Brown said she understands the trepidation seniors feel. Brown said:
With ISIS in the news and mass shootings and current events that are happening around the world, I think it brings to the forefront all people’s sense of need to protect their family and to protect themselves. And certainly one of the most vulnerable components of our society are seniors.
