To the surprise of many, Huffington Post featured an interview with Marchelle “Tig” Tigner-Washington, who talks about her ambitious goal to train one million women how to shoot.

“I think a lot of women, sometimes, we have this mentality that, ‘Oh, someone’s going to save us,’” Tigner-Washington explained. “And I try to inform the women that, ‘Hey, you can be your own protector.’”

Tigner-Washington is an African-American woman and National Guard veteran. She is also a firearm instructor who said she has experienced domestic abuse and sexual assault, and feels “more safe” now that she works at a shooting range.

She started her own company, “Trigger Happy Firearm Instruction,” an LLC that “is dedicated to empowering women through safe firearms education,” according to the website.
