rifle

Here is my best explanation:

'weapon' is the definition.
(rifle is a kind of weapon)

'anger about female' is the wordplay.
'anger' becomes 'rile' (I've seen this in other clues).
'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'female' becomes 'f' (abbreviation).
'rile' going around 'f' is 'RIFLE'.

'bringing' acts as a link.
