Defense Chris Cheng, the Pink Pistols and why guns are for all of us Recoil Staff August 10, 2014 0 COMMENT “Top Shot Chris Cheng” was part of the headline of a recent MSN News piece entitled Gay Advocates of Gun Rights. Cheng might be the most prominent gay marksman at the moment, but he’s not alone. Websites and communities tailored to gay gun enthusiasts include the Pink Pistols, Big Gay Al’s Big Gay (Gun) Blog, and GaysWithGuns.net, which features a sexy, stubbled man brandishing a semiautomatic. The website used to pose the provocative question of what would have happened to Matthew Shepard had he been trained to use a gun—though that was removed after too many people objected, and it was replaced with a quote from the Dalai Lama: “If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you … it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.” Self-defense was one of the reasons Marc Whittemore, a Los Angeles-based designer, started the website, but it was also partly to show that “it’s not just Christian, redneck, Bible-thumping old white men that are pro-gun.” Cheng recently became an NRA commentator and members of the Pink Pistols wrote a brief for part of the Supreme Court case that struck down D.C. gun ban, D.C. vs. Heller. They are still actively working on similar projects. This is good news for every pro-2A American. You know what Ben Franklin said about hanging together. Read the original article right here.
