The Gays Who Love Guns

Lesbian guns Pink Pistols

Remember when Justin on Queer As Folk briefly joined that gay vigilante group the Pink Ponies or whatever they were called? It was like Queer Fist or one of those other groups where gays get together to be tough and talk about how they’re not gonna take any more shit. Well the Pink Pistols take it one step further because they will shoot your ass if you mess with them, all in the name of “self defense.”

They have “ruffled the feathers” of other gay groups with their pro-gun stance, and a lot of people feel that being gay and supporting the NRA makes about as much sense as driving a pink Hummer. But the majority of the Pink Pistols seems to identify as libertarian as opposed to hardline liberal or conservative. Gwen Patton, a member of the Delaware chapter, says, “Some of us love ‘bush,’ but that’s a whole different agenda.” At least they have a sense of humor! But you’d better laugh or she’ll blow your face off.
