After the Orlando, Fla attack, the LGBT community is looking to protect themselves, so gun dealers are seeing an influx of guns being purchased by gays and lesbians.
This surge has been seen across the nation.
“For this time of year I’d say it’s three to four times what we normally have” said George Horne, owner of Denver’s oldest gun dealer to Fox News. “We’re not surprised by it”.
“I think right now because of what happened, people are looking for answers,” said Mike Smith, a firearms instructor in Colorado Springs, Colo. to KDVR-TV. “You walk into a gun shop and you expect to see people, frankly, who look like me. I think we forget we’re a country of all people, not just people who fit that predetermined mold.”
Not to mention, the membership to The Pink Pistols, a LGBT national gun club, has doubled.
Last Wednesday, the Tech Editor at Breitbart Milo Yiannopoulos, encouraged the homosexual community to lock and load at an event in Orlando. He urged the crowd, featuring a large group of gay conservatives, to exercise their right to bear arms so they are ready to defend themselves next time if they are the victims of another Islamic attack. He also recommended that all minorities and groups buy weapons to be prepared.
“My hope after today, after the ugly and disgusting thing that happened here is that gay people say too, like the Jews did after the second world war, never again and gay people too, let Islamic fundamentalist preachers and Muslims everywhere who are tempted into thinking they can treat gay people like this, they can treat women like this, they can treat Latinos like this, they can treat black people like this, they can treat anyone like this, that we will shoot back,” said Yiannopoulos.
He also argued that stricter gun control laws are not the answer.
“And to those liberals who say the answer is gun free zones, those liberals who say oh can’t we just love each other, your entreaties to peace, love and understanding on twitter are not changing the views of people in mosques around this city, are not changing the views of people in mosques anywhere else in this country, they are not changing the views of Isis, they are not changing the views of the immigrants who come into Europe, they are changing nothing, they are not helping you, they are not serving you, they are doing nothing for you. They are instead luring you into a false sense of security that you are safe, you are not safe… You have two things on your side that Europe doesn’t… That first amendment is underpinned by the second it is your right to bear arms, it is your right to protect yourself,” said Yiannopoulos. “If two, three, four people had been armed in that nightclub it would have ended very differently.”
Since Orlando, different liberal media outlets have created a media frenzy about the “spike” of AR-15s purchases. But, as twitchy.com pointed out many of these purchases have been made by the liberal journalists themselves as a stunt to prove how easy it was to buy these type of guns.
Ultimately, radical Islam was responsible for the Orlando mass murders, not a gun.
