With Only Two Chapters, Gays Against Guns Claims To Speak For The Entire LGBT Community

posted on August 16, 2016

On Monday, Gays Against Guns (GAG), an anti-gun group formed in the aftermath of the Orlando Pulse nightclub terror attack, claimed that “hundreds of gay activists will begin a campaign of civil disobedience and direct action against gun companies and their supporters …” GAG’s Ken Kidd and others presumed to speak for the entire LGBT community, telling companies, “If you get into bed with the NRA, we’re going to f-----g break up with you.”

But GAG is jumping the gun: Their website trumpets the creation of a chapter in Providence, Mass.—only their second. Claiming to represent all LGBT individuals is a real stretch for an organization with only two chapters, especially when the Pink Pistols, an LGBT pro-gun rights organization, has 45 chapters nationwide. Membership in the Pink Pistols tripled in the week after the Orlando attack. 

Perhaps GAG should let the LGBT community speak for itself on the subject of self-defense rights.
