“Rapists prefer unarmed women” was painted on Ana Avramidis’ sign outside the State House in Boston. She was there to demonstrate for National Gun Appreciation Day.
Avramidis joined about 1000 Second Amendment supporters to protect her right to carry.
“Everyone who’s not a felon should be able to carry, especially women,” said Avramidis who is 35 years old. “We’re at a natural disadvantage to defend ourselves.”
Avramidis took the necessary steps to carry a gun legally and protect herself from predators, including proper gun training. To her, martial arts and self-defense classes were not enough.
“The average man could still kick the [ ** ] out of me. A gun is just an equalizer,” she said.
