Pink Pistols, nicknamed the “gay NRA,” has become one of the fastest growing gun groups in the U.S., its growing membership, now numbering some 10,000, increasingly rubbing elbows with the more traditionally conservative gun rights crowd — a development that’s raising eyebrows on the Left.

In a report highlighted by the New York Post, Australian journalist Patrick Abboud traveled to the U.S. to find out why LGBT people, who generally align with leftist political positions, are increasingly embracing the Second Amendment.

“I would never have thought I’d see the LGBTI community siding with incredibly conservative, right-wing, pro-gun advocates that have been publicly homophobic and transphobic — that didn’t make any sense,” Abboud told News.com.au in a sweeping smear of the diverse American gun community.

One of the turning points for many in the LGBT community, Abboud found, is the horrific mass shooting by a radical Islamist at the Pulse gay club in Orlando that resulted in 52 people dead. Pink Pistols’ San Diego chapter president Piper Smith told Abboud that her decision to embrace her Second Amendment right to arm herself was directly inspired by the massacre.

“She decided to take up arms two days after Orlando because she said it was the 9/11 of [the] gay community,” Abboud said of Smith. “She couldn’t comprehend it and she genuinely didn’t want to go outside because she felt threatened just because of who she was. There is a looming fear that if it can happen in Orlando, it can happen anywhere.”

I literally don’t know what to think about this.

It makes me feel similar to when I see a black Republican. 

It’s like, “Do you not understand the history of the organization that you joined?”

But at least, in this case, I do understand the fear that might make somebody take up arms. 

However, I still feel that it only adds to the potential for accidental shootings and fatal crimes of passion. 

I mean gay bullets are just as deadly as homophobic bullets.

    Somehow it doesn’t surprise me, any more that African Americans who support Trump or gay people who support him. In fact, a lot of the people who do support Trump (and by extension, the GOP) work in direct opposition of their own best interests in doing so. A lot of people are just perverse, I guess.

    Sounds kind of like you are one of those racist liberals that tries to divide everyone by race…. and doesn’t believe black people should be able to, or aren’t capable, of choosing their own political views. Do you also call them Uncle Tom?
