In direct opposition to the pro-gun and common sense movement sweeping the LGBTQ community in the wake of the Pulse Orlando shooting that left 49 club-goers dead and many others wounded or traumatized, the 46th annual Pride Parade in New York City being held today will be having some uninvited, and uneducated guests — Gays Against Guns or GAG as they are dubbing themselves. 

Founded by Kevin Hertzog and Brian Worth on June 17, 2016, in response to the shootings on June 12. They are claiming that they are “taking their fight to the NRA’s front.”

Kevin Hertzog states that  “We know that several groups have been fighting gun violence in the U.S. for decades now. We’ll be meeting after Pride to hash out positions and a strategy approaching the November 2 elections. But for now, we want to present as large a crowd as possible on Sunday, to show New York and the U.S. that LGBTQ people are outraged. The current situation with guns in America makes us gag in disgust!”                                  13516573_1005329042870312_6535490771793380796_n

Brian Worth – co-founder GAG, states that “An FBI analysis just showed that LGBT people are the likeliest target for hate crimes. Homophobia plus civilian access to assault weapons like the one used in Orlando equal a deadly combination for queer people. We’ll determine the most strategic role our community can play in this fight.”

Now as I sit here and ponder these comments, they just simply do not make sense to me. WHY would you choose to NOT protect yourself by ANY means possible KNOWING that your chosen affiliation is one of the most likely targets for hate crimes? And then to gather together in a group, advertising yourselves as a group against guns?

Given that the attack just happened at Pulse in Orlando where dozens of LGBTQ individuals were gathered together en masse, where 49 lost their lives tragically and needlessly, and many others were injured and traumatized by the events that occurred, WHY would you actively congregate together and advertise that you are defenseless?

Why would you actively work against those organizations such as Pink Pistols who would seek to assist you in your own defense, ESPECIALLY when you have already identified that you are more likely to be a target as a result of your lifestyle?

Many people I know were not raised around guns or have not had the opportunity to be around firearms much.  Yes, they can be scary or dangerous if one is not educated or does not treat them with the respect that they are due.  However, firearms safety courses are readily available in most communities. Seasoned and trained instructors are readily available to teach your what you need to know and answer any questions you might have about firearms as a means to get you comfortable with handling one.

Criminals do not obey laws and good men don’t need them.  Hate begins in the heart, everything else is just a tool.
