Gun sales soar among gays

From PJMedia

KDVR reports: “However, what’s different this time around is the clientele. Mike Smith, a firearms instructor in Colorado Springs, is one of many closely tracking the sudden surge in gays and lesbians buying weapons.”

“I look at it as a disenfranchised minority that needs someone who’s willing to say I’m a resource who’s here and willing to help,” Smith told KDVR.More.

Reality check: As a Canadian, I have grave doubts that personally arming oneself is a solution.

Shouldn’t people be more concerned about why the police can’t help? Have local officers been attending courses against Islamophobia but never courses about how some Muslim nations view gays and why their influence might matter?

And have we ever wondered why the governments we pay taxes to can’t just say “Islamic terror”?

“Diversity” is not a strength. Tolerance is often a strength, but diversity as such is virtually never a strength.

So are the people scarred by Orlando going to continue to support all that “diversity” crap or insist on protection?

Oh wait! They can go burn down the local Jesus Holler instead. Sure. That’ll work.

  • Nothing negative must ever be spoken about Islam, not honour killings, not Islam’s treatment of women as chattel or its divine sanction of the murder of apostates or gays etc etc etc…

      Yes, when ruled ;by sharia law that is true, so we exactly are governments in the West imposing sharia on their citizens?

      • Citizens keep them in power. They could start asking questions instead.

          Even other practising Muslims in Canada who do not wish to live under sharia law have given presentations to committees in the Ottawa Senate and have gotten nowhere. To whom do you suggest we ask our questions? Change the slogan on the picture to “We Will Trudope You”.
          I have never voted for or supported a multitude of issues like uncontrolled immigration, climate change, progressive education agendas, gun control, the gun registry and have no say in SCofC decisions handed down that have fundamentally changed this country.

          • We need a political party that represents Canadians who want to live.

            Nice dream. lol

    It’s not enough to just buy a gun, you also need to be properly trained in its use, and practice with it until you are proficient.

    at one point early in the event, there was 13 officers in the club engaging the shooter, and yet they still retreated from him because they were ‘outgunned’. How many shots did these officers fire, before they had to retreat?

    Better late than never.

    I loved it when Milo pointed to a rainbow Don’t Tread banner and said it should read “Shoot back.”×480.jpg

    • lolwut?

      They have ones that say that.

    Sorry Denyse but I disagree. If the general populous was armed there would be way less cases of sudden jihadi syndrome ending in mass casualities.

    Currently in Canada if you have a gun in your home and you use it on an intruder you will be charged. The law says you can only use self defense if you can’t flee and if you use equal or less force than your attacker.

      Completely self defeating. Only greater force can undo force. Anyone who disagrees with me is welcome to prove there point in the ring with me. I am genuinely interested in this martial wizardry where this happens. This just trains the populace to be cowards.

      ..New Brunswick
      teenagers attack elderly man .. he shoots back he gets charged

      A 68-year-old man was been charged with discharging a firearm with
      intent and discharging a firearm in a reckless manner. He will be back
      in court on Feb. 3.

      The gun laws in Canada need to be changed. We need the “Castle Doctrine” law where one is allowed to protect themselves and their home from invasion. We also need concealed carry to be legal in Canada.
      Anyone, is free to not arm themselves with a gun, just don’t impose your death wish on me. A gun is the only way I can physically defend myself. I might still die trying to defend myself with a gun but someone is coming with me.
      It’s time to recognize that we live in a different and more unsafe world today, despite all the restrictive gun measures in place in various countries, supposedly to protect citizens. That’s not working out so well, is it?

        It’s time to recognize that we live in a different and more unsafe world …

        Washington D.C. Chief of Police, Cathy Lanier stated when interviewed on 60 Minutes that in an active shooter situation police are at best 5-7 minutes away and that the majority of the people slaughter are killed in the first 10 minutes or less.

        When calling 911 isn’t enough

        How about pushing for changes to the firearms laws so a properly trained lawabiding citizen can carry a firearm for self-protection. Given the response time of police in active shooter situation this request is more than reasonable, it’s life saving.

          RCMP detachement is within site of our office building. A drunk demanded we ‘loan’ him money. Staff refused and the drunk threatened to get his machette, he went out to the car and we locked the door and called 911.

          The drunk beat on the door and kicked it for 20 minutes with machette in hand. Looking out the window I could see the RCMP officer standing beside his car in the RCMP parking lot. After the drunk gave up and went away the cop drove over.

          I questioned his waiting till he drove away and he said his safety was more important than the publics and he wasn’t going to come over till it was safe too… and he also mentioned that since the drunk was native he would have gotten a wrist slap and it wasn’t worth the hastle of doing all the paperwork. He was the corporal for the detachment. Since then i assume during a robbery or B&E the cops will sit out.

          So a 5-7 min response time assumes they bother to show up at all.

    • Actually, even if you’re charged, you almost certainly won’t be convicted. There hasn’t been a Canadian jury ever, as far as I can recall, that has convicted a homeowner of murder, manslaughter, or even assault for using a firearm in his home to defend himself, or his partner, from a home invader. Usually, the Crown drops all charges, or has them thrown out, before it even gets to a jury. The exception to this rule is if the assailant is running out of the house and you shoot him in the back.

      • Exile1981

        Assuming you get a jury. In some parts ofvthe country judges are more activist than judge.

      • lolwut?

        They usually get convicted of other things like careless use of a firearm or some other list of charges they pile on.

        • Clausewitz

          Which then voids your FAC and they then confiscate your firearms without compensation.

      …so criminals have more rights.

    People are less likely to commit crimes when the cost of committing it includes a reasonable chance of death. If it isn’t worth dying for maybe its not worth doing.

  • The powers that be are fuelling the things they wish to avoid, namely vigilantism and a rise in guns.

    They can own this.

    • infedel

      The powers that be want no nationalism, no guns, total control, and marshal law to avoid the second amendment against tyranny…for control of the population and undisputed power.

  • Gary

    Obama just told the gays that being armed isn’t the answer.

    Translation: STFU and accept jihad to be slaughter as enemies of allah.
