Jonathan Fischer is never sure who’s going to be more surprised when he, as he likes to put it, comes out of the gun closet â€" the gun aficionados who find out he’s gay or the gay friends who find out he likes shooting guns.

When the 38-year-old television editor showed up last month to a defensive handgun class near Piru with a Glock 27 pistol on his hip, he wore a T-shirt sporting a rainbow-colored AK-47. His “gay-K-47,†he said.

In the days after 49 people were fatally shot at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., this summer, Fischer wanted to do something to make his community safer. So he started the West Hollywood chapter of the Pink Pistols â€" a loosely organized, national LGBT gun group.

“If someone was to try and break into my home, and especially if someone were armed, I don’t want to fight back with a kitchen knife,†Fischer said. “And I don’t think that’s extremist or crazy.â€

More gay / lez / trans people should embrace gun rights. They are a minority group that is often targeted for violence.

I think, or at least I'd like to, that at our core most gun-rights people are big personal liberty supporters. I know I am, and would hope that most of the rest of you are.

I've noticed a huge surge in pro gun rights awareness in the gay male community and interesting enough some of them are voting for Donald Trump which is just kind of weird. The rest are voting for Gary Johnson.

Doesn't matter to me what your plumbing is, what you want to call yourself, or how you get your jollies (as long is it only involves consenting adult humans), I support your human right to self defense. Anyone got a problem with that?

Is this an example of how gun control advocates all of a sudden realize they created the atmosphere for a mass slaughter of defenseless victims and have an epiphany?

It has been my experience that the GLBTQ minority tend to vote for those who would strip away Constitutional Rights like the 2nd Amendment, but do not just stop there, they also strip away religious liberty as well.

That is almost completely because the GOP is seen as actively anti-gay and the dems pro-gay. Many are pro-gun, but that's further down their list of priorities.
