Despite the great strides in freedom the LGBT community has earned in American society, we are still a widely-targeted group. According to the FBI, nearly 20 percent of hate crimes were aimed at LGBT people.
As LGBT people, we know there are some who seek to harm us.
As Republicans, we refuse to lay down and be victims.
As Americans, we know that the best way to defend ourselves is with our Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. Knowing this, we at Log Cabin Republicans support:
- Protecting the Second Amendment in its entirety.
- Expanding Second Amendment rights to allow concealed carry in every state.
From the shooting at Pulse nightclub to violent attacks on the street, LGBT people are in danger, but we know that when the Second Amendment is supported and protected – so are we.
