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

The fat pink slobs who go roaring over the landscape in these over-sized over-priced over-advertised mechanical mastodons are people too lazy to walk, too ignorant to saddle a horse, too cheap and clumsy to paddle a canoe. Like cattle or sheep, they travel in herds, scared to death of going anywhere alone, and they leave their sign and spoor all over the back country: Coors beer cans, Styrofoam cups, plastic spoons, balls of Kleenex, wads of toilet paper, spent cartridge shells, crushed gopher snakes, smashed sagebrush, broken trees, dead chipmunks, wounded deer, eroded trails, bullet-riddled petroglyphs, spray-painted signatures, vandalized Indian ruins, fouled-up waterholes, polluted springs and smoldering campfires piled with incombustible tinfoil, filter tips, broken bottles. Etc.
