Members of this LGBTQ gun club are arming themselves against the far right

Gun clubs are commonly associated with
conservative groups, but members of a new gun club in New York are taking up
arms against that stereotype and anti-LGBTQ hatred.
The Trigger Warning Queer & Trans
Gun Club, based in Rochester, N.Y., formed as a response to growing anxiety
within the LGBTQ community about the rise of an armed far-right.
"We have each others'
backs," said club member Lore McSpadden. "We're acknowledging our
fear of a world in which conservatives are the only ones who are armed."
The group meets once a month for
target practice and skeet shooting.
"We have survived the oppressive
weight of intersectional discrimination involving racism, sexism, classism,
sizeism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, ableism, and the many other dimensions of
hate and privilege that permeate society," the group's Facebook
"Because we are Trigger Warning,
and we are here to protect ourselves from the forces that would destroy us.
Consider yourselves warned."
Members of the club said anti-LGBTQ
events and others like the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville,
Virginia, prompted them to form a group that encourages members of the LGBTQ
community to defend themselves.
"Often queer people are thought
of as being weak, as being defenseless, and I think in many ways this pushes
back against that," said Jake Allen, another member of the Trigger Warning
"I want white supremacists and
neo-Nazis to know that queer people are taking steps necessary to protect
themselves," he said.
Allen says there is another Trigger
Warning chapter in Atlanta, and says he has received inquiries from people in
The Trigger Warning group is not
alone. Paid membership in The Liberal Gun Club, a national organization, has
nearly doubled since President Trump's election and 500 people joined the
National African-American Gun Association after the Charlottesville rally.
Members of the Trigger Warning group
say they are focused on empowerment and self-defense.
But some activists worry the rise in
left-leaning gun groups could be dangerous.
"Is an arms race what we really
want?" asked Scott Fearing, executive director of Rochester's Out
"What we know in any arms race
is that it's never good for anybody, and death and destruction and harm and
hurt can come when so many people have arms and weapons."

Ed.They “have each other’s back.” You’d think
that’s the side they’d be least interested in "covering."
Anyhow, it’s Trans Gun Club member
Lore McSpadden’s statement that fascinates me. "We're acknowledging our
fear of a world in which conservatives are the only ones who are armed," she/he
asserts. Only conservatives are armed? Has this young lovely bothered to look at pictures of some of
the charming folk arrested for murder during the past little bit?
