The terror attack by a Muslim extremist at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL has reinforced for the LGBT community that the Second Amendment is a gay right which must be protected. Indeed, transgender woman Nicki Stallard writes a thoughtful op-ed in The New York Times which rejects the "many L.G.B.T. groups calling loudly for laws restricting gun ownership," and instead issues "a call to L.G.B.T. people to take their own defense seriously, and to question the left-leaning institutions that tell them guns are bad."
Stallard is a spokeswoman for Pink Pistols which is an LGBT group supporting firearm ownership under the Second Amendment, and the organization recently won a federal lawsuit challenging a city law in Washington, D.C. which required residents to provide a specific reason in applying for a carry license as reported by U.S. News & World Report: "the city once called the nation's 'murder capital' historically has had strict gun restrictions" but "the rapidly gentrifying municipality recently has had difficulty defending them against Second Amendment challenges, notably including the Supreme Court's 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller that a near-total ban on handguns was unconstitutional."
Irrespective of the constitutional restraints against gun control, firearms in fact make communities safer and should be owned by all responsible people. In More Guns, Less Crime, author John Lott makes the compelling case with statistical analysis that our country is safer with gun ownership. Remember, if some violent home invasion crew is at your door, by the time the police arrive it's too late because law enforcement typically investigates crime after the fact rather than stops crime in the first instance. And nothing is going to stop a home invasion -- or a fag basher -- at your door better than AR-15s which exploitive politicians falsely refer to as "assault weapons," "weapons of war" or "machine guns." The AR-15 rifle requires a trigger pull to fire each round in contrast to a military weapon which can fire multiple rounds with just one trigger pull.
Sadly, many Auntie Gays -- the Uncle Toms of the LGBT community -- are betraying our rights to self-protection under the Second Amendment in order to curry favor with the Democrat Party, and these so-called gay leaders are embracing anti-gun hysteria which include calls from Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to ban the AR-15 as reported by Politico. Frankly, it's shocking to see some within the LGBT community now arguing to restrict constitutional rights. What's next? Ban the sale of the Quran regardless of the First Amendment simply because it's dangerous in the hands of radical Islamists who use it as their inspirational tool in committing terrorism? Or at least subject all wannabe purchasers to a waiting period and background check in order to ensure that no Quran sales are made to radical terrorists, and we'll call these restrictions common sense safety measures to which surely no reasonable person could object. Even though the Democrat Party and its Auntie Gays want to deflect attention away from radical Islam by focusing on gun control, banning weapons such as the AR-15 will not defeat Islamic jihad which targets the LGBT community. Even if every gun is taken away -- Barack and Hillary can dream, can't they? -- the homophobic-fueled Muslim jihadists still will target us, and when the hateful mob comes to stone you to death you'll wish you had an AR-15.
The gay community is engaged in a populist revolt against the Auntie Gays who purport to represent us even as they do the dirty bidding for the gun-banning Democrat Party. In records numbers LGBT folk are purchasing firearms, obtaining safety training and joining gun clubs following the Muslim jihad at nightclub Pulse. Tom Nelson, the founder of the Pink Pistols chapter in Delaware County, PA said "we've been very good as a community with candlelight vigils, but not so good at doing what it takes to prevent them from happening" as reported by The Washington Post. The Pulse massacre has changed submissive attitudes among the gay community. In West Hollywood activists are plastering the neighborhood with posters urging "the LGBT community to eschew their traditional pacifist role and take up arms to defend themselves" as reported by the Daily Wire.
The queer revolt against the Democrat-controlled LGBT groups has some Auntie gays getting their panties in a bunch. For example, Dan Savage in a recent column made a transphobic attack against Nicki Stallard in a bid to reduce her to a sexual freak through demeaning names such as "gun-fondler." If Stallard is a "gun-fondler" for supporting the Second Amendment, then can we call Savage a "kid-fondler" for supporting gay parenthood? Dan Savage long has been accused of using demeaning slurs in transphobic attacks including "saying that a Republican politician was trans as a way to insult him" as reported by The Bilerico Project.
Savage also lied about the underlying facts in order to portray Stallard as a gun nut rather than a responsible citizen with genuine concerns about personal safety. For example, in her New York Times op-ed Stallard writes about "wondering how many victims in Orlando might have been saved if a few people inside the nightclub had had concealed carry permits, and been able to fight back." In response Savage falsely states that the NRA and its chief Wayne Pierre are against guns in clubs, and launches a vitriolic rant against Stallard:
Stallard doesn't have reservations about people carrying guns into bars but Wayne LaFuckingPierre does. Being to the right of Wayne LaP on guns is hard to do, but somehow Stallard managed to get there. She just had to be as dumb as Donald Trump.
Dan Savage simply is dead wrong although the disingenuous tool no doubt could care less. In fact, as Stallard aptly points out in her op-ed, in many states it is perfectly legal to carry a concealed firearm into a bar or restaurant provided you aren't drinking, and LaPierre has explained consistent with these laws that "it's OK to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol" but "if you're going to carry, don't drink" as reported by The Trace. Just a little detail conveniently missed by the despicable Savage.
Of course, Auntie Gay Dan Savage is just an errand boy for the Democrat Party, and has no scruples about directing his attacks and lies to the LGBT community in a pathetic bid to get us in line with the misguided gun control agenda. The poor dear doesn't understand that any bid to rally the LGBT community as a monolithic voice on any cause unrelated to equal rights will be a bit like herding cats, and very well could bitterly split us apart.
