In the video above, a Detroit man in a car pulls a gun on a young man coming out of a convenience store. The fact that both men are black is neither here nor there. The fact that one man might be gay is also a non-issue — in my mind. This is a video of a man illegally brandishing a firearm. He should be identified and arrested. Jailed? That too.
Many if not most of the members of The People of the Gun are color- and sexual-orientation blind. They believe that all Americans have a natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. That no one has a “right” to use that right to intimidate or assault another America.
Minority groups prone to predation — including but certainly not limited to members of the LGBT community — have a demonstrable need to practice armed self-defense. I encourage them to do so, so that they may pursue happiness in whatever way floats their boat. As long as it doesn’t hurt others.
Anyway, excellent rant.
