Gun Banners Again Hijack The LGBTQ Community For Their Own Ends

posted on May 4, 2017

In March, we warned you about desperate attempts by flailing gun banners to co-opt other movements in order to stay relevant. Specifically, we called out Igor Volsky of Guns Down and Mark Glaze, of Everytown for Gun Safety, for telling the LGBTQ community that “The Issue Of Our Time (is) Gun Control.”

Now, Volsky and Glaze are hijacking controversy over the decision to replace the LA Pride Festival parade (on the anniversary of the Orlando Pulse massacre) with an anti-Trump march. In the Advocate, the pair crudely injected their issue with the headline, “On Gun Violence: Marches Aren’t the Problem.” (The article they were reacting to never mentioned guns.)

They wrote that the Pulse murderer was a “man whose toxic hatred for LGBTQ people and history of domestic abuse was weaponized by our lax gun laws.” They even managed to drag immigrants into the argument. No cause is safe from their claim-jumping.

We suspect the Moms Demand Action photo included was also unrelated to the LGBTQ cause—just like gun control is.
