Policy Brief Says LGBT Community Is In Danger—So They Should Disarm Themselves

posted on October 15, 2016

On Thursday, an LGBT health group released a “policy brief” that used the Orlando Pulse nightclub massacre to argue that because members of the LGBT community are more at risk of committing suicide and becoming the victims of hate crime, they should support measures that would restrict their human right of self-defense. 

The Fenway Institute made recommendations like drastically expanding background checks, implementing “no-fly list” bans, and reinstating the failed “assault weapons” ban. Sean Cahill, Fenway’s director of policy research, said, “The LGBT community has long advocated for legislative and policy change to allow LGBT people to enjoy the same rights and privileges as other citizens.” However, in a bizarre twist, he then claimed the movement “must embrace gun control to improve the basic safety of the LGBT community.” 

In other words, LGBT culture is in danger, so give up some of your options to defend yourself. This is not surprising, as the report also recommends making donations to Cure Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action, the Brady Campaign and Americans for Responsible Solutions—all leading gun-control advocacy groups.
