#1 George Takei warns NRA: ‘You don’t want to mess with’ LGBT community by Cincinnatus 15.06.2016 20:48


More nuttiness from one of the leading LGBQTRSVP nuts.

Former “Star Trek” star and gay activist George Takei penned an op-ed for The Daily Beast Tuesday arguing that the First Amendment cannot be protected without limiting the Second, and calling for a “common-sense” ban on firearms “designed for mass slaughter.”

Mr. Takeiwrote that the LGBT community is grappling with the notion that Sunday’s terrorist attack on the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando “was inspired by religious fanaticism.”

“No one on either side of the political divide is particularly comfortable with this narrative,” he said. “But the moment does offer an uncanny opportunity, an alignment almost never seen, where elements on the farthest sides of the cultural spectrum suddenly find common cause.


I had no idea Mateen was a member of the NRA (Lifetime?) and when in the gay nightclub yelled out, "NRA! NRA!", but perhaps I missed it.

Btw, I am always amused when seeing Takei described as a "star". For goodness sake on Star Trek he had even less a role than Nichelle Nichols (Uhura), plus she had better legs. He was only on the show because Roddenberry wanted to show how diversity is the rule in the wonderful Star Trek future. Otherwise they could have put a hat rack at that console and it would have made little or no difference.

One could probably pee on him. And he'd probably like it...

George may be behind the times.

Gun sales surge among gays, lesbians after Orlando shooting
Posted 6:23 pm, June 14, 2016, by Keagan Harsha, Updated at 09:25am, June 16, 2016

DENVER -- Gun sales are surging in the wake of Sunday’s deadly mass shooting in Orlando, Fla. The tragedy is generating new debate over gun control reform and the right to bear arms.

Gun shops typically see a spike in customers after mass shootings. But this time, many are seeing shoppers they’ve never really seen before: More gays and lesbians.

George Horne, the owner of The Gun Room, Denver’s oldest firearms dealer, said Tuesday business is booming at his store.

"For this time of year I’d say its three to four times what we normally have," he said.

Background checks that once took minutes can now take hours. It's a sales surge similar to what happened after Sandy Hook and the Aurora theater shootings.

“We’re not surprised by it,” Horne said.

However, what’s different this time around is the clientele. Mike Smith, a firearms instructor in Colorado Springs, is one of many closely tracking the sudden surge in gays and lesbians buying weapons.

“I think right now because of what happened, people are looking for answers,” he said. “You walk into a gun shop and you expect to see people, frankly, who look like me. I think we forget we’re a country of all people, not just people who fit that predetermined mold.”

The Pink Pistols is a national gun club for gays and lesbians. It saw its membership soar from about 1,500 members on Saturday to 3,500 on Monday.
