Single Issue

Or, why GOA should be. From the interview:

He objected to gays pushing gun rights just as he would object to “Adulterers for Gun Rights.”

Gun rights for those we approve of.

    “Gun rights for those we approve of.”

    Isn’t that how we got gun control in the first place?

  2. SmartAlec Says:

    Is that sort of like, “free speech for only those we approve of”?

    Just teasing you, I get your point, it’s just that the NRA isn’t exactly the poster child for protecting our Constitutional rights.

    Sounds more like he is guns for everyone versus guns for certain groups… Come on you guys have a little implied sense.. “pushing it in my face, they do have a right to be offensive.” He merely stated he disagrees with having a group that emphasizes being queer over being a gun supporter. He also disapproves of the in your face attitude. Quite a few of the posters here disapprove of Embody’s in your face methods. How is this any different????
    What some are going to state is that queers have no rights like the blacks did…. That is simply a lie. Marriage is not a right.. It never has been. You see the reason congress is not anxious to allow gay marriage is that because they will be forced to make marriage a right. That for progressives is a major sting to their shallow values. I find it amusing that in the end queer marriage comes down not to being queer but being married period… Must be quite disheartening to know that the progressives really do not care about your cause in the slightest and only use you to get votes…..

    Sounds like he’s a frigging bigot to me. I wonder if you lose your right to own a gun if you have a tattoo too (the next verse of Leviticus).

    The funny thing about that quote is, I think adulterers, more than most people, probably have a very keen interest in gun rights.

    Remember folks, guns don’t kill people, jealous spouses do 🙂

  6. Dr. Feelgood Says:

    Gun rights for all. Advocacy from those of whom we approve.

    I don’t have a problem with that.

  7. Miguel Says:

    Sebastian: IRRC the exact quote is “Guns don’t kill people. Husbands arriving home early do.” 🙂

  8. Captain Holly Says:

    Or Miguel — as per Garth Brooks’ song “The Thunder Rolls” (before it became PC)– “Guns don’t kill people, wives who discover another woman’s panties do”

  9. Captain Holly Says:

    Come to think of it, that’s probably the reason noted adulterers Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton were so pro-gun control. 😉

    I wonder how anyone can trust the half quotes from the interview that this writer published. Just read it to the end and you can see the clear intent of Scaminaci and he’s clearly no friend of liberty. It would be *easy* to deconstruct what he’s trying to do here.

    If Larry Pratt actually said or implied what Scaminaci claims in his one sentence summary (they should not have any rights; but, they do not deserve to be stoned to death) I will publicly disavow him. Based on Scaminaci’s explicit intent stated at the end of the article, I’m surprised anyone here trusts anything he says about an interview he did without publishing an unedited video or audio and confirmation from the interviewee himself that the interview was unaltered.

    But then, once again, it seems there are some who will pile on Larry and the GOA any time it fits their narrative.

    Granted, I don’t think Pratt carries himself well when speaking to the press. (Exercise: Compare and contrast to Cox’s condescension and offensiveness when he called into Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk on 10/17. Don’t forget to listen to the callers.) But that doesn’t excuse what I see here.

    Let’s not forget the comment thread after Uncle’s post about CVS: some folks think it’s OK when it’s not their ox being gored.

    Either we’re for freedom for everyone or we gunnies are just another special interest group and need to stop claiming that the 2A is a bedrock right that protects the others.
