Gays Against Guns (GAG) Merit Media: Incendiary Image of the Day

Gays Against Guns at Gay Pride Parade (courtesy pix11.com)

We called it. Despite their small number, the lack of a plan for — or track record of –anti-gun activism, or any paying membership, Gays Against Guns (GAG) is getting masses of mainstream media exposure for their participation in the NY Gay Pride Parade. In the same way that Moms Demand Action Against Gun Violence was entirely dependent on a supportive anti-gun press for their existence, GAG will garner exposure completely out-of-proportion to their actual public support.

Newly formed Gays Against Guns group advocates against gun violence pix11.com proclaims. And writes about GAG as if it’s a going concern, entirely based on their Facebook page and press release.

And in another parallel to Moms Demand Action — which started life as One Million Moms for Gun Control — it looks as if GAG is gagging on its “non-inclusive” homoerotic name: “An unofficial spokeswoman said in an email that the name of the group is under discussion to be more inclusive.”

And look for TTAG to continue to criticize the group for lobbying for disarmament of a group of people who have a demonstrable need to exercise their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Of course, the RKBA is not based on need, but still . . . madness.

    What a bunch of crap. New AIDS infections is a far FAR worse threat than guns. Nearly 14,000 people died in 2012 from AIDS with the AIDS death total around 660,000*

      AIDS afflicts approximately 1,000,000 Americans, less than 1/3 of 1% of our population.
      Since 1985, everyone on the planet has known how AIDS is spread and how to avoid it.

      Why, then, does the National Institute of Health give 10% of it’s research grants to a self-inflicted disease infecting less than 0.3% of Americans. Some group is getting 30 times their fair share. Write Your Congressman.

        The problem with the NIH isn’t how they distribute their loot. It is that they exist.

        They need to cure AIDS so we can all go back to having sex like it’s the 1970’s, man.

    2. avatar JAlan says:

      And yet there are groups of gays that spread it willingly, sometimes to unknowing victims. I think homosexuals should look at themselves before complaining that our rights are killing them. Still, I know this is not most of the gays, so I won’t judge them as they clearly have done to us.

        Has there been ANY independent confirmation that this guy (gay) is the real deal? He is heavily disguised, probably including his voice. It is certainly a possibility that he is a plant intended to distract attention from the Islamic/ISIS nature of the attack and focus it instead on being a hate crime/crime of passion.

          That’s weird, I thought I had read all of Lincolns quotes. I’ve never seen that one before though!

    4. avatar Tatiana Packer says:

      What’s your point, exactly? 90 people die from gun-related incidents EVERY day on average in this country. Do the math. That’s 30-thousand per year!

  2. avatar FormerWaterWalker says:

    Oh well-it’s not like they’re voting for pro-gun pols. Look they want your APPROVAL. Not tolerance,not “co-existence” or tacit “OK”. Anything but applauding ’em is seen as judging ’em. The snooze media is just going for an EZ story line…

  3. avatar Mikele says:

    Weird, how come The Pink Pistols gay gun rights groups membership has spiked by 200% and the media is silent?

    1. avatar Chris T from KY says:

      The homosexual leadership will ignore the pink pistols. The gay leadership gets more milage going to the government for help rather than being an individual and independent with their own guns.
      Homosexual leadership is socialist progressive.

    2. avatar Cliff H says:

      The same reason they ignore the Log Cabin Republicans. They simply assume that conservatives and Republicans are homophobic and opposed to them and/or their lifestyle and so cannot admit that any LGBTQ person or group could agree with the conservatives on any issue.

      They are heavily invested in the Liberal Progressive political dogma based on Democrat’s supposed policy of inclusion without judgement, whether or not that inclusion in the long term provides any real benefits. Their biggest concern always seems to be fear of being judged for how they live their lives, not any legitimate concern for the larger political picture.

      I had a cousin who moved to San Francisco, became deeply involved in the community, and subsequently died of AIDS. The last time I spoke with him before he died he described the fatalism of the LGBTQ community and their acceptance of their life as being entirely separate from the rest of society. They intentionally engaged in risky sexual encounters, including the risk of AIDs, S&M, rampant drug abuse, and frequent domestic violence and it was just the way they lived. To many of them being physically attacked for being gay gave them “street cred” and showing clear signs of suffering from AIDS was a badge of honor.

      These same people claiming to be somehow suddenly concerned about being shot is ludicrous and a patently obvious political position having little or nothing to do with their status as LGBTQ.

    Uh oh. Shannon Watts had better start updating her resume. What liberal wanting to purge white guilt and publicly signal some virtue will donate to moms when they can donate to gays? Gays win against moms in the Oppression Olympics every time. Of course, Muslims are still number one and beat gays. Just ask Hillary and Obama how important it is not to offend Muslims with silly notions like respecting the lives of gays.

    1. avatar tdiinva (Now in Wisconsin) says:

      The victim stack looks like this:

      Muslims because they can oppress women, sell blacks into slavery and murder homosexuals without rebuke.

      LGBT because they can invade women’s locker rooms and disrespect social conservatives in the black, Latin and Asian communities.

      Illegal Hispanics because they can be a wedge that keeps legal Hispanics on the reservation.

      Blacks because of white oppression and any Hispanic who defends themselves against black thugs is declared white.

      Legal Hispanics because they used to be classified as white.

      Asians because they aren’t oppressors but act white.

      Now Muslim women rank below white males. Men who pretend to be women rank above actual women. All other women rank above men in their group unless they are Jews in which case they have no benefits what so ever.

      This is an oversimufication of comes system but I hope it helps.

  7. So much homophobia from the gun-worshipers.

    Meanwhile the world face palms while Americans don’t get that more guns equals more deaths and mass shootings and the fact our government is controlled by the gun lobby and the fascist NRA.

    Less guns equals less crimes just ask Europe, Canada, Australia or japan.

      No it doesn’t:

      Half of our “gun deaths” are suicides – yet look at Japan’s suicide rate:

      Chicago has strict gun control laws on the books yet they have tons of crime:

  9. avatar bawb says:

    While making the name less stupid, they’ll prolly realize they overshot the mark being “against guns”. Got to be more insidious like “for sensible gun laws” or “for gun safety”.

  10. Commy liberals first I guess. If their fellow gays had been armed in Orlando, the death toll would have been a LOT less.

    1. avatar Andrew Lias says:

      Not to mention they somehow neglect the notion that it’s possible many of these people would have been alive had the police simply done their job in stopping the shooter in an expedient manner allowing for their treatment. Do you really want to put the trust of your life into a group of people that in reality has no obligation to protect you?

    “Your tolerance is killing us.”

    So…you’re saying you want me to quit tolerating Muslims and kill them all instead? My, what a bloodthirsty gaggle of gays you gaggers are.

    1. avatar Guardiano says:

      My exact thoughts when I saw the banner: yes, “our” tolerance of MUSLIMS is killing you, that’s correct.

  14. avatar Andrew Lias says:

    “However, its main goal is to advocate working through peaceful actions to prevent another massacre like the Orlando shooting.”

    I some how doubt that the jihadists who inspired this shooting care much about “peaceful motions.”

    They were the majority of the press for parades here in Portland and Seattle too.

  18. avatar Anonymous says:

    Delusioned social liberal extremists focused on the means of this massacre (guns), rather than the root cause (the Islamic killer and their ideology).

    I feel sorry for them.

  19. avatar TyrannyOfEvilMen says:

    Huh… I just assumed that the idea that gays were more prone to suicide was likely just right-wing religious propaganda.

    I may have to rethink that.

  20. avatar Neno says:

    Funny that a gay group should have the acronym GAG!

  21. avatar NjGuns1 says:

    I find it surprising how much coverage the “pride” parades get seeing as they are very family un-friendly events and seem to cause the downtown to clear out of all but their crowd when they get started up. Don’t take this as me being against gays or gays owning guns. Teach a fruit to shoot is all I have to say on the matter.

  22. avatar Ralph says:

    “the name of the group is under discussion.”

    Given their stand on self-defense, I suggest Gays Against Survival.

  23. avatar Kaban says:

    “Gays Against Guns group advocates against gun violence”

    The simple fact that the group refused to call themselves “Gays Against Gun Violence” gives out some political stink. Otherwise, for them to jump on ignorance bandwagon would be especially ridiculous. Gay community, of all people, should know the value of having a friend when facing a violent idiot.

  24. avatar Geoff PR says:

    “Your tolerance is killing us.”

    Time to throw it right back in their faces:

    Your intolerance of your own brothers and sisters who REFUSED to allow anyone to just slaughter them at the time and place of their choosing just got FIFTY of them murdered.

    I thought the very essence of LGBT rights was for people to just simply accept them. Nothing more.

    How about you practicing what you preach for just *once*?

    Their blood is on *YOUR* hands because of YOUR complete and total intolerance and lack of acceptance of someone else’s SPECIFICALLY enumerated civil rights .

    A religious bigot was LAUGHING at them as he took his own sweet time aiming and firing at them.

    A religious bigot who believes anyone LGBT should be just thrown off the top of a multi-story building,

    Just for simply being LGBT.

    Are you proud of what you accomplished?

  25. avatar LNJK says:

    Wasn’t this group originally called – Fellows Against Guns? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    The Fed Agency’s involved in the Propaganda war need to pony up & hire a professional production team. Carrying “victims” back to the Pulse, Robbie Parker Kabuki Theater, Christmas Day Escrow Fraud & my favorite.. Grampy “Gene Rosen!! I feel disrespected when ny tax $’s are given to the dimmer witted agents in charge of false flag propaganda, “mass shooter division”, treason unit.
    I demand that my tax $’s are not used against me in the waisted effort to pervert the 2nd Amendment that still reads ” shall not be infringed”.
    Please stop using my tax $’s to fund domestic terrorism, treason & tyranny. (i.e. Boston, S.H., S.B., Orlando, Aurora, Hillary, NDAA, TPPC, SOPA, UN, Safe Cities Act, Agenda21, Climate Change & Anderson Cooper)

    So where did the terrorist scumbag in Orlando declare his allegiance to the NRA and say he was radicalized after reading the U.S. Constitution? Hmmm? Didn’t think so.

  28. avatar Peter says:

    So all gay bars should be Gun Free Zones?

  29. avatar Chris T from KY says:

    http://www.advocate.com/election/2016/6/16/gay-senate-candidate-campaigning-no-fly-no-buy

    “Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin is the Senate’s first out woman. And she took to the floor on Wednesday to read the names of the 49 victims in Orlando and to call for stricter gun control measures”

    “This is a state with no out elected officials (save for him), and one that’s home to Kim Davis, who became the face of resistance to LGBT rights based on so-called religious freedom. If Gray were to win in November, he’d be the first out man to serve in the Senate”.

    Todays and yesterdays organized homosexual political leadership is anti-freedom. They are as anti-individual liberty as any communist or fascist. Libertarians have helped elect the people who will take their civil rights away but make it legal to “put things into their bodies”. Because that is the only thing libertarians care about.
