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

Gandhi was an anti statist in the sense that his vision of India meant India without an underlying government.[102] His idea was that true self rule in a country means that every person rules himself and that there is no state which enforces laws upon the people.[103][104] On occasions he described himself as a philosophical anarchist.[105] A free India for him meant existence of thousands of self sufficient small communities (an idea possibly from Tolstoy) who rule themselves without hindering others. It did not mean merely transferring a British established administrative structure into Indian hands which he said was just making Hindustan into Englistan.[106] He wanted to dissolve the Congress Party after independence and establish a system of direct democracy in India,[107] having no faith in the British styled parliamentary system.[106]
