From the truth-is-stranger-than-fiction department (or is that the we-couldn’t-make-this-up department?) I found this fascinating organization through an errant google search and I just had to share: the Pink Pistols.
“Thirty-one states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. ”
