War against civil rights -- in San Francisco!
The right to own guns may be even more important than the right to marry, Thomas said during the monthly shooting practice organized by the gay gun group the Pink Pistols.Things have come a long way since the Gay Guns float in 1982.
But some things never change, and it appears that despite its moral pose, San Francisco is highly intolerant of certain lifestyles:
"President Bush is trying to write prejudice into the Constitution, and the liberals are trying to do the same thing," Thomas said. "Our city's supervisors supporting this just freaks me out. Now I would not vote for any of them ever again. I felt like they were for our civil rights, and now I realize they aren't."Hoplophobic panic, no doubt!
UPDATE: Thank you, Glenn Reynolds for linking this post, and a warm welcome to InstaPundit readers -- especially all who care about civil rights in San Francisco! (Of course, I still remember when crushing of civil rights was John Ashcroft's job. . .)
MORE: All readers (especially new readers) who are interested in the issue of gay gun owners can find much more in-depth coverage at Alphecca -- by Jeff Soyer, the blogosphere's original "gay gun nut." Jeff's recent Weekly Check on the Bias offers an intriguing look inside the mental machinations of San Francisco gun grabbers.
