The ownership of a lethal weapon is often characterised as ‘men’s territory’… well Lynette Oxley is having none of that. Firearm training of young women is starting around the age of 11 now. The aim isn’t to create gung-ho gunslingers, the reality of the world means the safety of women is in their own hands. ‘Girls on Fire’ is allowing women to have a safety valve – should it ever come to that. Safety first, that’s the motto.
