NYT: LGBT Second Amendment Activist Speaks Out Against Gun Control

posted on June 24, 2016

Concerned about California’s proposed gun-control initiatives, pro-gun activist Nicki Stallard took to Facebook in May, asking, “If Gavin Newsom gets [the Safety For All Act] passed, how will transgender women like me be able to protect ourselves?” 

The message resonated, causing many to question whether their biases against firearms really helped keep those they were supposedly allied with any safer. 

Then the Orlando LGBT nightclub terror attack occurred. 

Now, with liberals and anti-gun politicians everywhere using that tragedy as a rallying cry for more gun control, Stallard is again speaking out for her right to protect herself. In a New York Times editorial titled “The LGBT Case for Guns,” Stallard questions the idea emerging in the LGBT community that these laws will prevent another Orlando. “This is a call to LGBT people to take their own defense seriously, and to question the left-leaning institutions that tell them guns are bad,” she wrote. “If you don’t defend yourself, no one else will.”
