Gays Against Guns Targets Reciprocity Legislation

posted on March 17, 2017

An advertising campaign opposing national Right-to-Carry reciprocity has begun in New York City. 

Launched by anti-gun LGBT group Gays Against Guns, the campaign consists of print, virtual and video components featuring a cloaked figure and an activist holding a sign reading “Not in my ___,” with the locale varying based on the location of the spot. 

In a release announcing the campaign, the group noted that it was founded shortly after the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla. One member said in a statement, “Since then I have been advocating for common-sense gun laws that would stop shooters who have hate in their hearts … HR 38 and S 446 [the House and Senate Right-to-Carry reciprocity measures] are the opposite of common sense.”

While the Pulse Nightclub massacre was a horrible tragedy by any definition, there’s not a law in existence that can legislate hatred out of someone’s heart. If existing laws against murder didn’t stop the murders in Orlando, how is it “common sense” to assume that preventing law-abiding gun owners from exercising their constitutional rights as they cross state lines could have any effect on future hate crimes?

From The Editor: Will More Europeans Go Pro-Gun Rights?

It is an open question whether, as everyone sees Ukrainian citizens picking up rifles to defend their lives and liberty from Russian troops, more Europeans will come to the conclusion that this is a right every law-abiding person needs.
