LGBTQ gun club formed in response to the rise of the “Far Right” in the US.

It’s in response to the rise of the Far Right in the US. In a small field near to the Canadian border, the newly formed Trigger Warning Queer & Trans Gun Club meet.

Lore McSpadden had never even touched a gun before joining the club,
“We’re acknowledging our fear of a world in which conservatives are the only ones who are armed.”

The 18 paid-up members are all LGBTQ, meeting once a month to shoot still targets and clay pigeons.
But the light mood affronts the incident that led to the group’s creation last winter when vandals burned two homes’ rainbow flags in this area, straight after the presidential election.

Gun club member Jake Allen wants to push back from the idea that LGBT people are weak and defenceless,
“I want white supremacists and neo-Nazis to know that queer people are taking steps necessary to protect themselves.”

About a dozen people in a field doesn’t exactly represent a vanguard of a newly armed left – but the group isn’t alone, with interest for other clubs coming from across the country.

Scott Fearing, from Out Alliance isn’t concerned by the idea of trying to fight guns with more guns.
“Is an arms race what we really want? What we know in any arms race is that it’s never good for anybody.”

But Trigger Warning members stress that this isn’t an arms race. They are about empowerment and self-defence, not offence.

Yea those Trumpers are always flinging gays off rooftops

      The gays are in little danger from even the far right, nor should they be. I see the problem as gays meeting with gays and intersectional militants who hype up the danger in a bid to get more fear and more support from the gays. They will tell the gays that unless they march and fight with the Antifa types there will be lynchings of gays in the streets. Since the gays generally don’t associate with with anyone else but gays and the left, there is nobody telling them that they are being paranoid.

      Someone not wanting to bake a cake for your gay wedding does not mean they are going to come around to your place tonight and murder you because you are gay. The conservative Christians really do have a saying, “Hate the sin, love the sinner”.

      • Precisely. There are gays, and there are militant gheys.

        I don’t want to hurt anyone, but these people are looking for a fight.

        • Bla Bla

          They want their ‘glorious marxist revolution’.

  • k2

    Well, let’s hope they have the sense to turn those guns on the true threat to them (and anyone not muslim) when the time comes.

    • WalterBannon

      the government, left wing billionaires, and muslims

  • Uncommunist

    Anything to remain relevant … fail.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Ok. Word to the wise, 7.62×51 is fine. But I have to tell you it does tear up your shoulder after a few decades. I’m looking to get rid of my FN-FAL for something smaller and lighter. You girls want it?

    • Exile1981

      I suspect they are going for pink camo guns in 22lr.

    • robins111

      I can foresee lots of magnum eye from those powerful AR-15’s and broken and sprained wrists from tactical pansy slap training.

    • WalterBannon

      I will always have a warm place in my heart for the FN, but no thanks

  • Red-Pilled Conservative

    Hope those limp wrists stiffen up a little into the recoil.

  • Blacksmith

    Scoped shotgun to shoot clay birds, yeah that will work out well.

  • Blacksmith

    I think the first twat need a lesson, it goes “ready, aim, fire!” not ready, fire, and then aim, just sayin.

  • favill

    I’ve never seen a telescopic sight put on a shotgun before…The guy must have really bad eye-sight. (sarc) How does that even work for shooting clay pigeons?…Since, you’re suppose to shoot at where the “pigeon” will be in a couple of seconds.

    • WalterBannon

      shotgun is for close quarters fighting preferably a short barrel variant, or hunting foul, or with the right load for bear defense

      anyone with a scope on a shotgun is an idiot

  • WalterBannon

    the imaginary vast right wing conspiracy of deplorable neo nazi conservatives are the biggest terrorist threat in the entire milky way galaxy, according to left wing douches and the fascist globalist totalitarian establishment

    however if that were actually true we would already expelled every single muslim and arrested the leaders and backers of the left wing fifth column like Soros and Merkel and hanged them from lamp posts
