Girls Just Wanna Have Guns (GJWHG) is a pro-gun, pro-right-wing site run by Regis Giles. Ms. Giles is an outspoken advocate of gun ownership and right-wing causes. Unfortunately, as of this review, they appear to have switched to a newsletter model in conjunction with the questionable Patriot Journal.

Girls Just Wanna Have Guns does not disclose ownership or funding.
Analysis / Bias
The stories on GJWHG reflect Ms. Giles views, with no apparent attempt at presenting opposing views. There is little to no sourcing in the stories, and with no bylines I assume all of them are written by Ms. Giles herself. In total, GJWHG resembles a personal blog more than an actual news source. Much of the content also borders on conspiracy, only saved because most of the stories have at least some basis. Still, the obvious bias, lack of credible sourcing, and conspiracy overtones earn GJWHG a questionable rating.
We have subscribed to the newsletter and will update this source once we have enough information to properly re-rate them.
Overall, we rate Girls Just Wanna Have Guns Far-Right Biased and Questionable based on a lack of transparency and the promotion of propaganda. (D. Kelley 6/12/2017) Updated (6/16/2021)
