Roswell, GA (WGCL) — A Roswell woman is helping women look good while protecting themselves on the street.
Leslie Deets is designing handgun handbags that she calls Concealed Carrie.
Each purse has a separate concealed-carry compartment that securely conceals the handgun in a safe and accessible manner, according to their website.
The FBI reports 2.5 million gun background checks in January are up 80 percent from last January, many of which are women.
"Being the self-proclaimed fashionista I am, I studied the current trends in women's high-end handbags and concluded that demand would be high for a concealed-carry option that offered the utmost in both style and quality of material," said Deets on her website.
