Gay rights, Gun rights, or both?

E-mail Print PDF

Blake Zeff completely misses the mark when he asks what the gun control movement can learn from the gay rights movement.

In other words, he asks:

What can a group seeking to eliminate rights learn from a group seeking to gain rights.

But like most neoliberals, he falsely links (in his mind) the two "movements" since he sees them both as [neo]liberal causes. Sure most phony progressives want gay rights and no gun rights, but a logical look at the dynamics of these two interest groups shows that they should be opposing not congruent. Any true libertarian would see that this is a personal liberty question. What you do is your own business, so long as you don't infringe on another's rights.

Several replies to the article make excellent points on why the gay and gun rights camps should be in accord with each other:

What the gun control movement can learn from gay rights.

and if you haven't heard of them, I present Pink Pistols (a gay gun rights group) who's motto is "Armed Gays don't get Bashed".

Quote of the Day

... But even when the information is widespread and available, many Americans would rather change the channel and distract themselves with the contrived drama of reality TV than consider the actual reality that their own government could behave in a manner so criminal, brutal, hypocritical, and unconstitutional. We want to believe that we are the inheritors and preservers of freedom and democracy. We want to trust that our government obeys its own laws. It's just easier that way. The sheep don't want to take time out from lazily grazing in their coach potato pastures to consider the turmoil outside the flock.

The simple fact [is] that Americans are too distracted by celebrity gossip, video games, and sports and are too preoccupied with acquiring massive amounts of stuff, to notice that their government is dissolving their liberties and committing crimes in their name...

- Judge Andrew Napolitano
