Big Gay AlĒ sums up this movement on his ďBig Gay (Gun) Blog:Ē
I have to wonder, if this [gay bashing in NYC] would be going on, IF NYC didnít have such strict gun control laws. Mayor Bloomberg would have everyone believe that only the police and the military need firearms. Yet, Gays are getting pounded on more often now, than in the recent past.
Any time Iíve had a conversation with some anti-gun fanatic, and I ask them, ďWhat should I do if Iím attacked?Ē their stock answer is, ďCall the police.Ē Like thatís gonna keep me from getting my brains bashed in. I have to wonder, do they live in the ďrealĒ world, where the police usually show up AFTER the damage is done, or what.
I have a Michigan Concealed Pistol License, and I carry every day. And even though, I can carry concealed, Iíve jumped on the Open Carry bandwagon, and you know what, no one has attacked me yet. Now some might suggest itís my size. I stand 6 feet 2 inches tall, and I weigh about 270 pounds. Yet others will suggest itís the nickel plated .45 automatic pistol that I carry. I like to think itís my charming manner that keeps people friendly toward me.
In any event, everyone in the LGBT community should take a hint, protect yourself. Do whatever you have to, to stay alive.
