Pro Gun posters have suddenly appeared around West Hollywood showing a gay version of the Gadsden Flag and the hashtag #ShootBack.
Seems the Orlando terrorist attack has brought out the self-defense segment of the gay community in a big way.
The flags have been posted in front of the Pacific Design Center, The Abbey, West Hollywood City Hall and in front of artist Chad Michael Morrisette’s house.
Ever since the Orlando terrorist attack, as Obama calls for more gun control. the gay community has been going in the other direction…
They are arming themselves in droves. They are calling for themselves to be armed in droves. They are not staying silent! West Hollywood is speaking out! The gay community is speaking out!
West Hollywood might be leading the way, but the movement is stretching from sea to shining sea.
In the hours and days after the Orlando attack, the Pink Pistols Facebook page was inundated with requests. The email inbox of Gwendolyn Patton, the founder, filled. Her phone began ringing off the hook.
The organization, whose motto is “pick on someone your own calibre”, was started in 2000 and has hoped that arming homosexuals would act as a deterrent against homophobic attacks.
“The Pink Pistols are the ones who have decided to no longer be safe targets,” the group’s website states. “They have teeth. They will use them.”
Gay gun rights advocate Tom G. Palmer is calling for LGBT citizens to arm themselves.
He writes at the Daily News: “Let’s get one thing very clear. Gun control advocates disarmed the victims at that nightclub. Florida law states unequivocally that even a concealed carry permit “does not authorize any person to openly carry a handgun or carry a concealed weapon or firearm into any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose.”
That made those people sitting ducks. Legally designated gun-free zones are invitations to killers. They get to rack up kills among defenseless victims without any effective opposition. There is a reason why they seek out such places: Everyone has been disarmed and rendered defenseless by the gun-control movement.
Advocates of gun control think it’s a good idea to disarm victims and to advertise where you can find completely defenseless people because there’s one primitive magical superstition they share with the murderer Omar Mateen: chanting things makes them true. If you chant the right words, in this case “Guns are forbidden,” no one will have guns. And if no one has guns, there will be no murders.”
Palmer hit the nail on the head! It really is simple. Had a few people been armed in that club, many lives could have been saved. West Hollywood has a LOT of clubs and I would imagine that any future terrorists might think twice before planning there.
