LGBT Gun-Rights Group Is Growing After Orlando Attack

posted on June 21, 2016

After the recent shooting at an Orlando nightclub, a national gun organization for the LGBT community is watching its ranks grow in record numbers. The Pink Pistols say membership grew to 3,500 on the Monday after the incident, up from 1,500 the day before. What’s more, the organization added 1,000 more members over the next week.

Pink Pistols Spokesperson Gwendolyn Patton told NBC News, “We’ve had the greatest response in three areas: our Facebook page, which has tripled in size; our chapters, we have so many requests for information on starting new chapters I’ve lost count; and the sheer number of people offering services such as training to our members.” The Pink Pistols largely consists of LGBT individuals, but also includes straight members.
