In the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando homophobia will hit the spotlight. There will be some on the fringe who feel the killing was justified. It was not. More the point, it doesn’t matter. This attack is proof — if proof is needed — that the LGBT community is a target for homicidal fury. And proof isn’t needed.
The gay community has been subjected to homophobic violence since…forever. If you’ve got a target on your back, the best thing to do is have a firearm on your person.
Will the gay community finally wake up to this simple fact and arm themselves in their own defense? Or will it cling to its liberal anti-gun bias and continue to suffer the consequences?
