Women Breaking Stereotypes: Firearms Examiner Sara Rogers Dispels Myths About Gender and Gun Enthusiasts

Celebrating Women’s History Month at the Sedgwick County Regional Forensic Science Center

In a recent interview, Dr. Steadman shared that there are 43 employees at the center, with 34 of them being female. One of those employees, Sara Rogers, a Firearms Examiner at the center, expressed her thoughts on the stereotype that only men would typically be in a position like hers as gun enthusiasts.

Rogers explained that her primary goal as a Firearms Examiner is to analyze ammunition components and determine if they were fired by a particular firearm. Despite not growing up around firearms and being from a state with heavy regulations on them, Rogers stated that she takes her job seriously and emphasized that it is not about being a big lover of firearms but rather doing what needs to be done.
