SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. — More women are learning how to shoot a gun in response to Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright’s call for women to arm themselves, according to a shooting school instructor.
Top Gun Shooting instructor David Blanton said his classes have “gone off the scale.”
“This time last year, if we had 10 people in a class, that was good. This year, we’re having 60 people a week in class,” said Blanton.
The call for women to arm themselves came after several violent crimes in Spartanburg County.
The most recent crime was reported Wednesday, when a woman told deputies she had been pulled over and raped by a man impersonating an officer.
“If people would have been able to defend themselves, the crimes might not have happened,” said Blanton.
