On issues of personal safety and the basic human right of gay people to defend themselves, the left is not on the side of gay people.
As The Federalist reported, openly gay individuals have been on the forefront of the gun-rights cause in Washington DC. The last three major gun-rights victories in the nation’s capitol have been fought and won by gay people.
A gay man who carries a gun for protection penned an editorial for the New York Daily News urging other gay people to arm themselves.
“Legally designated gun-free zones are invitations to killers,” wrote Tom G. Palmer, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, in the editorial published on Monday. “They get to rack up kills among defenseless victims without any effective opposition. There is a reason that they seek out such places: Everyone has been disarmed and rendered defenseless by the gun-control movement.”
It’s not the Right that wants gays to die cowering in bathrooms with shouts of “Allahu Akbar” ringing in their ears, it’s the American Left. (“It’s a good thing that bar was a gun free zone; it could have gotten messy if people could shoot back.”)
Also, an article explaining why using the Terror Watch List to deny citizens their Constitutional Rights is such a no good, very bad, completely unconstitutional violation of human rights that none of the anti-gun leftist lickspittles like George Takei will bother to read.
