Eleanor Roosevelt had her own .22 revolver so she could travel alone when she pleased. The First Lady refused Secret Service protection, but the agency director requested she carry a gun- so she learned to shoot, got a license, and kept the revolver in her car. Though she claimed to be a ‘fairly good shot’ who ‘carried it religiously,’ close friends later said she usually only carried the permit. Source Source 2 Source 3
