    ‘Gays Against Guns’ Launches NYC Ad Campaign Against NRA-Backed Concealed Weapons Law
    By Madina Toure • 03/17/17 6:00am

    Gays Against Guns, an LGBTQ group dedicated to stricter firearm regulations, has launched its first major advertising campaign—an effort that will combine with protests around New York City against National Rifle Association-endorsed legislation in Washington that would mandate “reciprocity” in concealed weapon permits nationwide.

    The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 and its counterpart in the Senate would require any state that gives out permits for concealed weapons to recognize such permits issued by other states, even if they do not have the same eligibility and training prerequisites or restrictions on gun ownership. Gays Against Guns describes “reciprocity” as a “long-held goal of the gun lobby and its continuous effort to use fear to sell guns.” ...
    Strangely, ironic.

    Perhaps the answer is to launch a counter group.....'Gun owners against Gay's' or something similar.Just imagine the shrill response THAT would cause.

    There is a counter group. They are called The Pink Guns. They are a real gay and lesbian pro-gun organization.

    "Pink Pistols" actually http://www.pinkpistols.org/about-the-pink-pistols/

    It all started back about 2000 with the goal to get enough GLBTQ armed concealed carry and to have that widely known that some gays carry that it might give pause to somebody out to bash some gays .. sort of a herd immunity kind of thing.

    But not just GLBTQGKJHGFYGF and X's, folks sometimes think somebody who is perfectly straight might look a bit too butch or not butch enough and decide it might be fun to pick on them as well .. or straight women who have been raped or abused and have problems with men when they are armed or acting a bit macho and showing off to friends at the range .. it's a safe place emotionally for them to get back on the tracks and develop some self confidence .. we also get a lot of deaf folks, not just at gun ranges but in gay bars because they get hassled sometimes for using ASL in bars from some of the folks who have had a bit to much to drink, and having ASL translators/ interpreters at functions is a common thing in the Community.

    Niche thing to be sure , but we can often reach folks and get them started shooting that are sometimes overlooked by more mainstream folks ... Don't know how it is going nation wide , but I am experiencing a definite uptick in non shooters, GLBTQ and straight women, that have decided armed self defense sounds like a real good idea all of a sudden.

    the downside is it is getting expensive .. I have had to buy three more pistols just to be sure I have the right pistol for beginners to try out one must make sacrifices for the cause...

    I guess they couldn't think of anything else to latch onto in order to get their name in the paper. It's NYC, who really cares?

    Down to the bare bones on the issue for me is that I'd be very passive with this LGBTQ nonsense rights if they weren't trying to destroy my rights along the way. I'd gladly live in peace with "them" but they've no respect for me.

    Well said VinnAY. The extreme wing of this movement believes that if you do not agree with them in every aspect (born this way, God accepts it, etc) you are 100% against them.

    It's taking stupid identity grievance politics to an extreme. The Democrats played that game for years and it came back to bite them when White working class Americans decided they were an identity group with grievances against the Democrats and voted Trump in.

    Its this way with the entire Far Left & Left (Even if they like Guns ,they have other "Issues" that far outweigh 2A/RTKBA when they go to the polls . Picking a side is en vogue now ...

    You forgot to mention that they also strongly desire to be congratulated for being 'that way'. Mere acceptance is in no way enough for them.

    I guess it makes sense to start something like this in NYC. I doubt it would get much traction in say, ORLANDO.

    I don't look forward to it but I hope the next person/s to try gay bashing gets lit up.
    A while back (video on local news) here in austin there were some incidents of men walking up behind gay men who were waiting in line and hitting them in the head hard enough to fracture an eye socket, knock out several teeth and cause concussion.
    I suppose they were feeling their "constitutional rights" flowing over and had to share some with the evil gay person standing there minding their own business.
    Trump and his supporters are the reason I have a shiny new DPMS Recon and 1000 rounds of 308 sitting in my gun room.

    Your democrats and their leftist supporters/groups anti-Trump protestors are the very people who are committing political violence: rioting, looting, burning down their their own neighborhoods and businesses. Your people, the same people who claim they're peaceful, tolerant, gentile souls are the biggest threat to your property and your life, but keep living in your delusional reality.

    On the other hand, thank you for self-identifying as an anti-Trump leftist - I'm sure your leftist buddies will spare you.

    now, now chas - just what business were the faggots in line to transact? Hired buggery, or just what? Maybe the guys with stick (or whatever they were using) knew something. Or had been raped by some gay. Or had a relative who had been infected with HIV by one. Or had some other grievance. Or were just bigots and meaner than snakes. I reckon the sanctuary jail sheriff would be happy to take the party who committed the assault into her jail and the Dim DA would be happy to persecute - which is about all we can ask.

    Not a big fan of male homosexuality. I had a half dozen gay friends and co-workers. 5 of them died of AIDS, plus one aircraft designer who was a hemophiliac. The only one left alive (at last report) survived only because he had a religious epiphany, became a lay brother in a cloistered Catholic monastic order and devoted himself to silence, prayer and writing letters to all his friends telling them to repent.

    Are they ANY different from the fad about two years ago where thugs that would do the EXACT SAME THING to just about ANYONE they ran across, and would then post their 'adventures' on the Internet?

    Then, it was just being a thug. Now, they are "Trump Supporters". I don't buy ONE BIT of that.

    I am not a big fan of gay bashers either, but confusing ignorance and stupidity with the average everyday, Trump supporter is way arrogant on your part and wildly inaccurate.

    I see a lot more ignorance and intolerance flowing from Liberals (and Democrats) towards any people at all who aren't on their 'be nice to, at ANY cost' list.

    I see your DPMS and raise you 60 rifles, 40 handguns (low estimates of what I own that would be effective) and around 70,000 rounds of ammunition. (I know I am a little light in the ammo department, but I AM correcting that).

    Just be careful who you link up with if what you seem to think is inevitable actually happens. If the S REALLY HTF, YOUR 'unit' will likely consist of a bunch of spaced out snowflakes that figure they will be able to effectively subdue all their opponents by hitting them over the head with their Bongs,

    There's only one name for opposition like that. Targets.

    You like stats. Fox is the most trusted name in news. Ignore it to your peril and ignorance..

    With 90% of the media against Trump, what else would you expect. They brain wash those with no thinking, apparently you are one. Wear the shoe if it fits and apparently yours could be on your head, not your foot.

    Additionally, Trump and Neal G. are the only hope we have to preserve our gun rights. What about that do you not understand? If we had Hellery, our guns would be done. Are you really pro gun and does it matter to you? That is what the forum is for. Why do you support loss of our gun rights? Have you had your head in your shoe or other body part? You seem brain washed and closed minded by the lame stream media and Clinton News Network. You have absolutely no credibility IMO. Any respect I had for you is gone. bye bye.

    The Communist Party USA, endorsed Obama and Hillary, NOT Trump. We know which side you're on.

    BTW Obama and Hillary did more for BOTH the ChiComs and Russians than Trump has ever done.

    Please, tell us some more of your delusions, as I can only speak for myself, enjoy a good laugh.

    Lessee..............

    Your "count":
    You,
    The Democrats who voted for an un-convicted multiple serial felon
    Everyone who didn't vote, which of course puts them on YOUR side...................................

    BTW............. prior to the election (September and October) I recall an awful lot of people using your defective counting methodology.
    Shock set in about 9pm on a Tuesday in early November.
    Denial set in about 9:05pm on that same evening.

    ..and precisely WHO commissioned those surveys, decided how to word the questions, took the data, and then interpreted and chose how to report the results?

    Hint: It is the same lamestream news organizations that were in Obama's back pocket for the past ten years, who decided that Hillary Clinton was better than sliced bread in 2016 (and are still smarting about that), and would NOT write a positive news story about Donald Trump even if he PERSONALLY saved a school bus chock full of first graders from driving off a cliff.

    One thing that news organizations have learned is how to exploit THE BIG LIE, just like Nazi Germany used on their population.

    Based upon the political leanings of the average Journalism school graduate in the past 30-plus years and who then got jobs reporting the news, it is pretty easy to figure out the mindset they will be using when they write their articles.

    When opposition views are NOT reported, shouted down, and the holders of those views are physically attacked (sound familiar?), the outlook for the continuation of true democracy becomes pretty bleak.

    People who are easily influenced, do not look critically at the information given to them, and/or are just plain stupid can eventually be taught to believe in ANYTHING, especially if you repeat the same old lies to them over and over again.

    If you haven't yet read it, I suggest you get hold of and read George Orwell's book 1984.

    It has a LOT of parallels to current events in the US.

    Examples: systematic surveillance of citizens, one-party, government, stranglehold control of everything the country does, being in a perpetual state of war, total control of the news and the willingness to rewrite history whenever it becomes convenient, reviling an 'evil subversive individual's' actions (Goldstein, is this Trump today?), and people's vocabularies being narrowed down to the point that people are NOT capable of having anything except politically-approved thoughts because the words used to describe the banned concepts have been 'forcibly' removed from usage, forgotten, and no longer exist in the language.

    The biggest crime in Oceania (the country in which the story takes place) is ''thoughtcrime', which translates to thinking politically banned thoughts..

    When (if) you read it, I specifically suggest you think hard about what Winston Smith (the main character) does in his job in the book, and how he isn't all that different from today's 'journalists'.

    Whatever news outlet told you that 70% is lying. Here's Gallup. Other polls are about 4 points higher . Considering that the election was contentious to say the least and that 90% of the news media hates him to the point of foaming at the mouth I think Trump is doing better than expected.
