    Okay guys,

    San Fran has school zones all over, actual UOC will cause problems. The rules of the parade say no wapons, so it will have to be empty holsters.

    Of course we can have signs etc and we can have our chants.
    Last year we had a small group and only a few hecklers.

    This parade will pribably happen the weekend right after the MacDonald ruling, timing couldn't be better.

    Just paid the fees, but will need help in other ways, especially from peop,e who are in San Fran or close by.

    The Pink Pistols appreciates support from outside the gay community.

    Making alliances outside the gay community is something that the so called gay ?eadders advocate although I honestly donMt think that the Pink Pistols aligning up with gun groups across the country was exactly what they had in mind.

    Last year we had a small group, this year I would like to see 100 plus marching for gun rights.

    You got 100 people to sbow for pizza, this forum, the people here really do rock.

    The most pressing issue we have is getting enough safety monitors, we need 1 per 5 marchers.

    Becoming a safety monitor requires attending a 2 hour class prior to the march.

    A RPecent showing by us will demoralize our opponents.

    The SAF is holding their annual GRPC in burlingame this year. Running pro gun marches and rallies in San Fran is bringing the fight directly to the enemy.

    Let's put them on defense in their home turf.























    The big issue to making this happen is we need enogh safety monitors, we have to have 1 monitor per 5 marchers. Becoming a monitor means attending a 2 hour class prior to the march.

    Symbollically our presence will demoral

    Instead of empty holsters, might I suggest carrying cast-resin replica guns painted bright pink? Get one of the "Blue Guns" and a rattle can of hot pink paint. Would be 100% legal.

    12556. (a) No person may openly display or expose any imitation
    firearm, as defined in Section 12550, in a public place.

    ...

    (d) Subdivision (a) shall not apply to the following, when the
    imitation firearm is:

    ...

    (13) A device where the entire exterior surface of the device is
    white, bright red, bright orange, bright yellow, bright green, bright
    blue, bright pink, or bright purple, either singly or as the
    predominant color in combination with other colors in any pattern, or
    where the entire device is constructed of transparent or translucent
    materials which permits unmistakable observation of the device's
    complete contents. Merely having an orange tip as provided in
    federal law and regulations does not satisfy this requirement. The
    entire surface must be colored or transparent or translucent.

    Whats with this statement? (in red) You want a gun group to align with you but you won't align with a gun group. I've lived through the 50's and60's and I don't want to ride in the back of your bus. I'll take another form of transportation.

    Confirmation bias is evident in your non sequitur response.

    Nicky was indicating that the "gay leaders" might not have had a Pink Pistols-OC alliance in mind when they advocated making alliances outside the "gay community", but that's exactly the kind of alliance they should get.

    .Guys,

    When the pink pistols came into existence many gay leaders in places like SF couldn't believe gays could be gun owners, much less actually support armed defense.

    Many gays are in the closet about being gun owners, it is worse than being a republican, especially in a bastion of political correctness like SF.

    Conversely, you leave SF and you can have civil discussions and what I notice is doors open.

    Our presence was actually well received last year by the spectators which will piss off the anti gun forces even more in SF.

    Last year we had a nice sunny day, it was a fun march. Of course last year we marched behind a marijuana contigent whose cars we emitting large amounts of exhaust from the passenger compartments, didn't smell like car exhaust btw

    I can agree. As a gay republican gun owner and firearms instructor it is far from easy to garner acceptance in the gay community or with the libs. I am who I am and I dont follow stereotypes =D im 100% up for this! As much as I hate the parade this will be a good part of it :celebrate

    I'll do my best to be there. Even though I'm not sure I like the gay pride parade (just as I wouldn't be fond of a "straight pride" or "white pride" parade)... I'd really like to build a bond with the GLBT gun-toters out there. I can only imagine that they need our support at least as much as we need theirs.

    I like the idea of pink replicas, but not sure it's a practical use of funds... might be up to each person to decide if they're willing to fork out the money for a replica. I'm sure Pink Pistols has better things to spend their funds on.

    The replica guns are like $40.

    I'm still kind of inclined to invest in one. Heck, it could still even be used for training, as long as I'm not too embarrassed by the color.

    Good thing they didn't call your bluff! You couldn't have evenshot styrofoam peanuts back at them!

    I support the pink pistols 100%. EVERYONE deserves the right to effectively protect their own life in an effective manner regardless of race, religion, orientation, or anything else that makes each individual unique.

    Hey Nicki,

    Since I am a considerable distance from SF, are their any "chapters" or groups accross the nation, or is this just a Cali or SF thing?

    What the heck is a "safety monitor"? Is this someone who watches out for pot-holes while you're holding a sign in front of your face?

    I like the painted faux guns. If pink plastic guns are acceptable, what would be wrong with realisticly painted plastic guns?

    Go with a latex paint, and remove it later.

    I thought about that, but it seems like kind of a pain. Still, good point.

    lol, I know right? Last time I travelled to Maine, I thought I'd look up all the firearms laws.

    It took me all about about 10 minutes, of which 8 were spent feeling sure I'd missed something.

    Having a concise criminal code is FTW.

    BTW, the so-called "liberals" who pretend to have oh-so-much "compassion" for the poor have created a system that shafts the poor with their excessive laws.

    Thanks to statists and authoritarians everywhere, the poor are at a disadvantage in court due to the importance of the professional lawyer class.

    Gone are the days when a person could read the law and represent oneself. Here are the days when the poor routinely plea guilty to offenses they are likely not guilty of, simply because they cannot afford to secure their acquittal.

    If modern-day "liberals" actually had an ounce of genuine "compassion" for the poor, they would desperately seek to simplify the criminal code of places like California, so that the poor might once again have a fair chance at freedom and equal standing in courts (both civil and criminal).

    But, noooooooo. They don't do that. Instead....
