Gay bashing on the rise in NYC

I have to wonder, if this would be going on, IF NYC didn't have such strict gun control laws.  Mayor Bloomberg would have everyone believe that only the police and the military need firearms.  Yet, Gays are getting pounded on more often now, than in the recent past.

Any time I've had a conversation with some anti-gun fanatic, and I ask them, "What should I do if I'm attacked?" their stock answer is, "Call the police."  Like that's gonna keep me from getting my brains bashed in.  I have to wonder, do they live in the "real" world, where the police usually show up AFTER the damage is done, or what.

I have a Michigan Concealed Pistol License, and I carry every day.  And even though, I can carry concealed, I've jumped on the Open Carry bandwagon, and you know what, no one has attacked me yet.  Now some might suggest it's my size.  I stand 6 feet 2 inches tall, and I weigh about 270 pounds.  Yet others will suggest it's the nickel plated .45 automatic pistol that I carry.  I like to think it's my charming manner that keeps people friendly toward me.

In any event, everyone in the LGBT community should take a hint, protect yourself.  Do whatever you have to, to stay alive.

Democrat’s Background Check bill discriminates against same-sex couples

The following is from Monachus Lex, a blog by John Pierce.

Democrat’s ‘Universal Background Check’ bill discriminates against same-sex couples

Posted on March 14, 2013 by John Pierce

As if same-sex couples were not faced with enough social and legal bigotry, the so-called ‘Universal Background Check’ bill being pushed by Democrats adds the threat of being made a felon for simply going on a long business trip.

“What?” I hear you cry. “How is that possible?”

A plea to Scouts: Don’t let the ‘bad guys’ win

Really? "Don't let the 'bad guys' win?" What a load of crap!! Equating being Gay with being 'bad' is the lowest and basest form of attack I can think of, short of calling someone a racist without any viable truth. Just because you're Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual or Trans-Gender, doesn't mean you're bad. You're just different. It's like being white or black, European, African, or Asian. You don't choose your sexuality, anymore than you can choose your race. (Note, I did not include the various religions in this comparison, since you can change your religion if you want to.)

I find it unfortunate, that people like this, from American Family Association give Right Wing Conservatives a bad name. I myself, generally call myself a conservative. Which applies to most issues. This however, is not one of them. In my opinion, these people make Attila the Hun look like the Cookie Monster. Is it any wonder that Gay bashing, both physical and verbal still exists?

Take my advice, you're a known member of your local LGBT community, legally arm yourself. Start a Pink Pistols Chapter in your area. Learn how to use your weapon of choice. Get a license to carry if required where you live, and make sure you keep on living.

One News Now story starts below.

Leaders of traditional values groups believe if the Boy Scouts changes its policy regarding homosexuals as members and leaders, that organization could be deeply hurt.

The proposal under consideration by the Boy Scouts of America, announced Monday, would remove sexual orientation from the national membership restriction and permit regional counsels to make their own decisions about membership.

"Currently, the BSA is discussing potentially removing the national membership restriction regarding sexual orientation," read a statement released yesterday by the Scouts' leadership. "This would mean there would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation, but that the chartered organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting would accept membership and select leaders consistent with their organization's mission, principles or religious beliefs. BSA members and parents would be able to choose a local unit which best meets the needs of their families.

If they come for your guns, do you have a responsibility to fight?

I feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. The reason I feel compelled to write this, however, is simply because I don’t think the average American is equipped with the facts. I feel that a lot of American citizens feel like they have no choice but to surrender their guns if the government comes for them. I blame traditional media sources for this mass brainwash and I carry the responsibility of all small independent bloggers to tell the truth. So my focus today is to lay out your constitutional rights as an American, and let you decide what to do with those rights.

About a month ago I let the “democracy” word slip in a discussion with a fellow blogger. I know better. Americans have been conditioned to use this term. It’s not an accurate term and it never has been a correct term to describe our form of government. The truth is that the United States of America is a constitutional republic. This is similar to a democracy because our representatives are selected by democratic elections, but ultimately our representatives are required to work within the framework of our constitution. In other words, even if 90% of Americans want something that goes against our founding principles, they have no right to call for a violation of constitutional rights.

If you are religious you might choose to think of it this way… Say that members of your congregation decide that mass fornication is a good thing. Do they have the right to change the teachings of your God? The truth is the truth. It doesn’t matter how many people try to stray from it. Did I just compare our founders to God? In a way I did, but please note that I am not trying to insult anyone. For the purpose of the American Government our constitution and founders who wrote it are much like God is to believers. It is the law. It is indisputable.

Our founders did not want a “democracy” for they feared a true democracy was just as dangerous as a monarchy. The founders were highly educated people who were experienced in defending themselves against tyranny. They understood that the constitution could protect the people by limiting the power of anyone to work outside of it much better than a pure system of popularity. A system of checks and balances was set up to help limit corruption of government and also the potential for an “immoral majority” developing within the American People. We have forgotten in this country that we are ultimately ruled by a constitution.

Why is a democracy potentially just as dangerous as a monarchy? Let’s look at something that Benjamin Franklin said because it answers that question more fully and succinctly than I can.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. -Benjamin Franklin

Even 230+ years ago our founders were perceptive enough to realize that democracy was a dangerous form of government. How so? Because the citizens of a country can become just as corrupt as any government. We have seen evidence of this throughout history. Ask Native Americans and African-Americans if this population can become corrupt.

I think in 2012 we are seeing evidence of what Franklin was trying to tell us. Just because a majority of people may support certain ideas it does not mean that those ideas are just. In simple terms, just because most Americans love our president and voted for him, it does not mean that he has the power to go against our constitutional rights.

Next I’d like to review the text of the second amendment. It is very clear. This is the law of this land. So when Senator Feinstein or President Obama talk about taking your guns, you need to think about something. Are they honoring their sworn oath to uphold the constitution?

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

This is a pretty clear statement. The fact is that it took 232 years for the Supreme Court to even rule on this amendment because it has never been successfully challenged. In 2008 a case of Columbia v. Heller the Supreme Court ruled that a handgun ban in Washington D.C. was unconstitutional. One also has to take this into consideration. The Supreme Court supports your right to own guns. If you want to research this decision further you can start here.

For those who try to debate the spirit of the 2nd amendment, they are truly no different from people who will try to take Biblical quotes out of context to try to support their immoral decisions. The founders were very clear on the intent of the 2nd amendment. Let me share a few quick quotes here:

The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. -George Washington

The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -Samuel Adams

I could find hundreds of quotes like these. This country was built on the right to bear arms. It was built on the rights of an individual to bear arms, regardless of what his government or neighbor happened to think. This is crystal clear. Ironically the people who voice their opinions against this right have their free speech protected by your guns. Without guns in this country, all other amendments become null and void, simply because “We the People” will lose our power of enforcement.

We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple.

A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if I was gunned down, but in the end I would be the only true American among us.

Our framers were very clear on this. If my government comes to take my guns, they are violating one of my constitutional rights that is covered by the 2nd amendment. It is not my right, at that point, but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty. What I am telling you is something that many are trying to soft sell, and many others have tried to avoid putting into print, but I am going to say it. The time for speaking in code is over.

If they come for our guns then it is our constitutional right to put them six feet under. You have the right to kill any representative of this government who tries to tread on your liberty. I am thinking about self-defense and not talking about inciting a revolution. Re-read Jefferson’s quote. He talks about a “last resort.” I am not trying to start a Revolt, I am talking about self-defense. If the day for Revolution comes, when no peaceful options exist, we may have to talk about that as well. None of us wants to think about that, but please understand that a majority can not take away your rights as an American citizen. Only you can choose to give up your rights.

Congress could pass gun ban legislation by a 90%+ margin and it just would not matter. I think some people are very unclear on this. This is the reason we have a Supreme Court, and though I do not doubt that the Supreme Court can also become corrupt, in 2008 they got it right. They supported the constitution. It does not matter what the majority supports because America is not a democracy. A constitutional republic protects the rights of every single citizen, no matter what their “elected servants” say. A majority in America only matters when the constitution is not in play.

I just wrote what every believer in the constitution wants to say, and what every constitutional blogger needs to write. The truth of the matter is that this type of speech is viewed as dangerous and radical or subversive, and it could gain me a world of trouble that I do not want. It is also the truth. To make myself clear I will tell you again. If they come for your guns it is your right to use those guns against them and to kill them. You are protected by our constitution.

Most of the articles I am reading on the subject are trying to give you clues without just coming out and saying it. I understand that because certain things in this country will get you on a list that you don’t want to be on. I may well be on that list. This blog is small and growing so I may not be there yet, but I have dreams. I also have my own list of subversives and anyone who attempts to deny my constitutional rights is on that list.

I am not the “subversive” here, it is the political representatives who are threatening to take away my inalienable rights. If they come to take my guns and I leave a few of them wounded or dead, and I somehow survive, I have zero doubt that I will spend a long time in prison and may face an execution. But I would much rather be a political prisoner than a slave.

If I go down fighting then I was not fighting to harm these human beings. I was simply defending my liberty and yours. It is self-defense and it is what our country was built on. We won our freedom in self-defense. We would not be ruled by a tyrannical government in the 1770′s and we will not be ruled in 2012 by a tyrannical government. There is no difference.

This is a case of right and wrong. As of now the 2nd amendment stands. It has never been repealed. If Feinstein or Barack have a problem with the constitution then they should be removed from office. They are not defending the constitution which they have sworn an oath to protect. It is treasonous to say the least. They would likely say the same about me, but I have the constitution, the founders, and the supreme court on my side. They only have their inflated egos.

I am not writing this to incite people. I am writing this in hopes that somehow I can make a tiny difference. I have no idea how many of my neighbors have the will to defend their constitutional rights. 2%? 20%? I am afraid that 20% is a high number, unfortunately. When push comes to shove many people may give up and submit to being ruled. I believe that our government is banking on this.

What I do know is that this country was founded by people who had balls the size of Texas and Patriotic Americans take shit off of no one, especially our own government. For evidence of that, you might research the Revolutionary War. My question is how many Patriots are left?

I would hope that our officials come to realize that, regardless of our numbers, we still exist because they are calling Patriotic Americans to action. They are making us decide if we want to die free or submit to their rule. I can not tell you where you should stand on that. I do know that it may make the difference between living a life of freedom or slavery.

You must start thinking about this because I believe that the day is coming soon and I personally believe it has already been planned. Not all conspiracy theories are hogwash. They may throw down the gauntlet soon and my suggestion is that you prepare yourself to react.

I mean no disrespect to our elected officials but they need to understand that “We the People” will not be disarmed. If they proceed then it is they that are provoking us and we will act accordingly. We are within our rights to do so.

For those who are in support of taking the guns, you need to ask yourself a very important question, and I am not just talking about the politicians, because if you support them, you have chosen your side.

Are you willing to die to take my guns?

IMPORTANT UPDATE From Dean Garrison!!! When this post originally went viral I was trying to answer every single comment and that lasted for almost 48 hours Then I came to grips with the fact that I am human and I can’t do it. If for no other reason I value my family and I can’t steal time from them to constantly be on the site. I want you all to know that I appreciate your support and good debate whether you agree or disagree. I also want to thank each and every American Patriot who has made the honorable choice to serve their country. Anyone who wants to repost this on their blog or website is also given permission to do so, so long as nothing is changed in the text of the article, and a link is provided back to this site. Again, thank you so much. I am humbled. This free wordpress blog has just gone from averaging 300 visitors per day 40,000-50,000 hits per day and I have no idea when things may return to normal. That was caused by the people that cared and not the author. I am just an average American that cares. Every Facebook share, retweet, and email is helping and please continue to support what you believe in. We make no money from this blog. We may someday, but for now it is our choice to offer the truth as we see it for the good of our country and not for anything material. Keep on sharing and let’s make them pay attention to us! No sane American really wants a Civil War. We want peace but we will not back down from a government that chooses to ignore our founding principles. I am forever in your debt and service. -Dean Garrison The D.C. Clothesline.

Cowardly Taliban shoot defenseless girl

According to a story posted on NPR's blog, a young girl who wrote a diary about life under the Taliban, was targeted by the Taliban for what she did. And what she did was expose the cruelty of the Taliban. How they burned down all the girl's schools in the Swat valley of Pakistan, while they were in control, among all the other evil acts they have committed and still commit. She also wrote about how she secretly still attended school by hiding books in her clothing.

 The good news, she's not dead and will likely recover, although it may mean a trip to another country (USA?) for treatment. The bad news, the Taliban cowards say they'll target her again.

Going Hunting? Get Training!!!

If you live in California, and you like to hunt, you have my condolences.  But, if you've never hunted before, you should consider a hunter safety course.  Seriously.  It can mean the difference between life and death.  Anyone, who's never been hunting, regardless of how long they've been around firearms, should take one.  And, check your state laws, it might be required to get your hunting license!

Health Update

Just so you know, I'm not dead.....not yet anyway.  On July 14, 2012, I checked into Sparrow hospital in Lansing, MI.  At the time I had several things going on.  Cellulitis for one, and as I suspected, several other serious infections.

They put me in isolation, pumped me full of anti-biotics, and operated on my left knee and right foot to remove several serious abscesses.  The surgeon's hope is this will help save both legs from amputation.

I'm told there are still several abscesses in my right leg, below the knee, but apparently they're not serious enough to warrant surgery.  In any event, I'm now staying at the Ovid Health Center, in Ovid.  A small, one horse town, that doesn't have a Hungry Howies I could order from.  I don't think there's even a McDonald's in town.

They got wound vacs on my injuries, which seem to be accelerating the healing process.  My hope is they'll let me go home to stay soon.  Right now, I can go home for a few hours, but living in Mason, makes it a bit of a drive to go home very often.

Here's hoping I'm home soon, and can post more.  I promise, my next one will be about guns, and/or politics.

Gun Free School Zones? What a joke

Is it just me, or does the Gun Free School Zones act of 1995 seem useless to you too? I mean, just how effective has it been? Between 1996 and 2010, there have been forty-five (45) school related shootings in the USA. Seems to me that the GFSZ is NOT working very well. All it's done is create a false sense of security. Oh, and it keeps the law-abiding citizen from legally carrying his or her firearm for self defense, near a school.

Some people will say (and have said) "Why do you need a gun at a school?" Well, how about we ask the victims of the 45 school shootings how they would have felt, IF someone OTHER than the killers had been in legal possession of a firearm at the time?

Oops, sorry, can't ask most of them. Because they're DEAD!

Help Support Gun Facts

For years, Gunfacts has been totally free. Now, Guy Smith, the author/compiler/whatever you want to call him, is asking for help. Considering how useful Gunfacts have always been, I'd think we should have been donating years ago.

Check out the fundraiser page by clicking on the link to the left, or the title of this blog post. You'll see that you can get some pretty good perks for your donation. Do it today, ok?

And do me a favor, if you found the Gunfacts Fundraiser through this site, just add a note to Guy telling him. I don't get anything for this, we just like to know.

Today is my....

Today is my birthday. (boo, hiss) Normally, on my birthday, or sometime shortly before or after it, I usually buy myself a new firearm. This year, I'm going to buy a new (meaning used) car.

But, if I have enough left over from my income tax refund, I will buy myself a firearm too.

Hopefully, I'll have something more substantial to post a little later on.....presuming I don't get drunk off my ass, and fall in a ditch. :)

BELLEVUE, WA – This week’s revelation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that homicide is no longer among the leading causes of death in the United States – at a time when gun ownership is at an all-time high – shows that the gun ban lobby has been wrong, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“The CDC’s report for 2010 that removes homicide from the top 15 leading causes of death in this country coincides with a period of record high gun ownership,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “At the same time, increasing numbers of citizens have obtained concealed carry permits and licenses. This is pretty strong evidence that rising gun ownership does not translate to more violence and murder.”

Gottlieb, co-author of the newly-released SHOOTING BLANKS: Why Facts Don’t Matter to the Gun Ban Crowd with Dave Workman, noted that the CDC has long been a source of data exploited by gun prohibitionists.

“I wonder how anti-gunners will try to spin this report,” he mused. “Gun control extremists will have a hard time explaining how, after years of repeated predictions and warnings that more guns in private hands will result in more mayhem, that homicides are no longer among the top causes of death in the United States.

“Gun banners can’t have it both ways,” Gottlieb continued. “If the data had shown murders on the increase, you can bet your life savings that they would be screaming ‘We told you so!’ on every front page in America.”

Gottlieb said the CDC report is just one more demonstration of how wrong anti-gunners have been in their campaign of fear against private gun ownership.

“This new information correlates with national crime trends over the past few years, showing declining violent crime while gun ownership has increased,” he concluded. “You simply can no longer demonize gun ownership or the Second Amendment as a leading cause of crime.”

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at or by email to

Colt Tells Connecticut, “You Can Keep Your Unions,
Gun Bans, and Taxes”

Colt Tells Connecticut, “You Can Keep Your Unions, Gun Bans, and Taxes”…
Hello Florida!
Posted by Andrea Ryan on Tuesday, December 13, 2011, 4:30 AM

Colt is joining all the other innovative American manufacturing companies in the great stampede to the Right to Work South.

From RedState…

Colt Firearms appears to be one of the many Connecticut companies looking for a less hostile home.

To clarify, Florida is a Right-to-Work state and Connecticut is not. Which may be why the UAW is so concerned about keeping jobs in the anti-business state:.

via The Miami Herald:

Colt Manufacturing Co. announced earlier this month it is bringing 63 jobs and a new regional headquarters and product manufacturing center to Kissimmee, Fla., next year.

Of course, Colt’s move may also have more to do with the hostile nature Connecticut has toward businesses, or the largest tax increase in the state’s history that was just imposed in June.

Skype Call Recorder

Riviera for Skype is a Skype call recorder. It automatically records Skype calls and conversations to MP3 files. It's very convenient for recording interviews, tech talks, conferences, audio casts, pod casts for learning later, and probably other applications I've not thought of yet.

If you use Skype, give this program a try. The free trial version has no functional limitations. It has a 14 day trial period only. After the trial period is over, you must buy it or stop using the software.

When will it end?

I know this blog is mostly about guns, but sometimes, it has to be more.

The latest "alert" on American Family Association's OneNewsNow website is about Gays in the military seeking EQUAL recognition for marriage rights. First, Gays and Lesbians weren't "good enough" (make that moral enough) to fight for our country. Now, those that fight for our country, aren't entitled to the same rights as the straight community is. When will this blatant new form of "racism" end? Yes, I said racism. while not strictly a separate race, the LGBT community is being treated pretty much like African-Americans were 50+ years ago. Actually, in many ways, worse.

A little over half a century ago, in some areas, it was illegal for Blacks and Whites to marry one another. Until President Truman changed it, Blacks in the military were mostly segregated with a few exceptions. (Most cooks on navy ships were Black.) Quite honestly, I'm surprised someone isn't calling for segregated units now, putting all Gays and Lesbians in their own units. I guess maybe I shouldn't give them any ideas.

I get it that for the most part, when most of the highly prejudiced straights out there think of Gays and Lesbians, and other, non-traditional (in a sexually oriented way) people, they think of the flamboyant types you see most often in the Gay pride parades. However, I would say that for the most part, those are the minority in the LGBT community. Most live a quiet life, unobtrusive, and for the most part, unnoticed. And, along with the flamboyant ones, STILL denied some of their basic human rights.

Complain about it all you want, I don't care. The LGBT community has just as much right as the rest of you to be married, and live in total abject misery for the rest of their lives, if that's what they really want. The idea that allowing same sex marriage will cause the downfall of this country or civilization is total and complete, utter BULLSHIT!

And before any of you reply, bringing up those pedophiles in NAMBLA, please don't bother. Those deviants should all be taken out and shot, several times.

The above is simply my opinion. If you don't like it, tough titty said the kitty but, we all gotta suck it.

Welcome to the United Soviet States of America

Federal appeals court backs
Obama's health reform law


A federal appeals court today upheld key provisions of President Barack Obama’s landmark health reform law, ruling that Congress can require Americans to buy health insurance or face penalties.

The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld an earlier decision from a federal judge in Detroit, who found that Congress did not overstep its constitutional authority in requiring most people to buy insurance. That was the argument made by the Thomas More Law Center, an Ann Arbor-based Christian legal center that had challenged the health care reforms along with four plaintiffs.

U.S. District Judge George Caram Steeh ruled against the law center and refused to issue an injunction to halt preparations for putting federal health reforms into full effect in 2014.

Federal judges in Washington and Virginia also have upheld Obama’s health care reforms. A Florida judge, though, has ruled against it. Attorneys general from 12 states, including Michigan, are also challenging the health care reforms. The issue is expected to eventually reach the U.S. Supreme Court.

In other words, we are NOT Citizens of the USA, we are subjects, and Obama is the king.

A small setback for Open Carry and Freedom in Michigan

For those of you who were not aware, there was a case in Ingham County Circuit court, Michigan Open Carry, Inc. (MOC), vs. Capitol Area District Library (CADL). MOC's contention was that CADL did not have the authority to ban open carry of firearms in it's libraries, as CADL was created by various local units of government, and answered to the same.

CADL's position is that they are an "authority" and are not mentioned specifically in Michigan's Preemption law, which forbids local governmental bodies from creating firearm laws stronger than the state. And if that didn't work, CADL also claimed they fit into the list of Pistol Free Zones, as they are sometimes used by schools, and they claim they lease their property from a school district. For reasons unknown currently, they dropped that claim in court.

CADL also proposed that openly carrying a firearm in a holster was "brandishing," under Michigan law.

Judge Rosemarie Acquilina, apparently went with her feelings, and not the law. She had made her pre-disposition to this case known earlier, when she granted a temporary injunction against openly carried firearms several months ago. This injunction is now permanent, at least until the appeals process is exhausted.

The judge did not rule that OCing of a firearm was brandishing, so I guess CADL lost that count.

As I understand it, OCing in a CADL library is out now. Concealed carrying is still OK... so far. I guess we'll see how long that lasts.

Judge Acquilina, it's long past time for you to step down. When you let your feelings get in the way of the law, you are no longer a fair and impartial judge. Do the state of Michigan a favor, and step down NOW!

There will be more to come on this subject.

Equality Matters twisting the truth to fit their agenda

Below is the start of their trumped up story on the NRA. If you want to read the whole thing, click on the name of this article, which will take you to their site.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) dropped the law firm King & Spalding shortly after the firm announced their decision to not defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on behalf of the U.S. House of Representatives. King & Spalding had previously represented the NRA on important cases, including the Supreme Court decision McDonald v. Chicago.

King & Spalding announced late last month that they would not defend DOMA after pressure from groups suggesting the firm's work on DOMA would be in violation of their own non-discrimination policies.

Now you might ask, if not because of their dropping DOMA, then why? Well, actually, it is because they dropped defending DOMA, but not for the reason you think. It's because they caved under pressure, to drop a client.

So who's to say they wouldn't cave in again, and drop the NRA? The leadership at the NRA doesn't want a law firm that will drop clients at least little pressure. They need legal representation that will stick with it for the long haul. And apparently King & Spalding is not that firm.

The NRA, as an organization is NOT Anti-GLBT. While there may be some individuals within the NRA that are, the organization is not. When the Cease Fear/Pink Pistols Seattle chapter was first starting up, the NRA, SAF and other pro-2A groups gave full support, including financial to that chapter.

The thing to keep in mind with "Equality Matters" is they are part and parcel of Media Matters. A far left wing media watch dog. People who make it their business to stretch the truth to fit THEIR perspective. In other words, it's a lie.
