I took my 12-year-old daughter shooting this summer for her 12th birthday. Self-defense is one of the best gifts you can give a girl.— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 26, 2012
Last night, Twitchy told you about the hysterical leftists bashing GOP Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan for buying hunting gear for his 10-year-old daughter. The backlash has provoked a remarkable counter-backlash from conservative parents who stepped forward on Twitter to talk about their children’s shooting and hunting experiences; women who pushed back against gun-control zealots; and Second Amendment defenders who shared memories of taking lessons from their dads and granddads.

@michellemalkin Started teaching my daughter at 10. Now at 20 she's a better shot than me.
