Defensive Stance to support the use of Ranged Weapons

My suggestion is to open more options for the use of Defensive Stance by allowing Ranged Weapon using Dwarven Defenders to benefit from the feat.

Defensive Stance:
+2 strength
+4 constitution
+2 resistance bonus on all saves
+4 dodge bonus on AC

By allowing Ranged Weapons to be used whilst his ability is active, it can provide a more defensive foothold for a ranged player by preparing for an incoming assault as they get closed in on by enemies and will be less likely to need to re-position themselves or retreat whilst they finish off a target. The +2 STR will also synergize well with ranged weapons which typically make use of the Mighty weapon property, as well as a ranged users typically low Strength. From this position, they would not need to re-engage the Defensive Stance ability and could change to a melee weapon should the fight be prolonged.

Thanks for your consideration.
