Some sign up for concealed carry courses at Four-State Women's Fare

Some women in the Four States are taking extra measures to protect themselves.
A concealed carry company was just one of nearly 50 booths at this year's Four-State Women's Fare, held at the Joplin Holiday Inn.
A wide variety of topics was covered including hospice care, tanning, army recruitment and natural disaster preparation.
Liberty Tree LLC offers conceal carry and tactic courses at the Avilla Fire Station.
Women make up nearly 50% of the class enrollment.
"More women over the age of 55 are buying handguns than any other segment of the population," said organizer Virginia Carroll.
"Women, statistically, are more likely to be attacked than a man, and they're realizing that as time goes on in the world we live in, it gets a little rough sometimes," said Gabe Royer, Liberty Tree LLC. "They want to make sure that they're armed and we want to make sure that they are too."
There is no prerequisite for a concealed carry course, but Liberty Tree LLC does recommend an Introduction to Firearms course, which covers revolvers, semi-automatic weapons, home defense shotguns, assault rifles and hunting rifles.
