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.
