NRA's latest way to show America it doesn't get it: Equating their cherished dangerous weapons with 'gayness'

by Jeremy Hooper

In a video denouncing the java giant for its stance against customers bringing guns into stores, NRA News commentator Colton Noir makes this jaw-droppingly offensive comparison:

Screen Shot 2013-09-23 At 10.03.06 AmNOIR: "In the wake of Starbucks coming out of the proverbial anti-gun closet - yes, I said anti-gun - because when you request that I don't bring my gun with me into your store, that's an anti-gun stance. Think about it. When you say 'We're not pro- or anti-gay but please all gay people - we respectfully ask that you not bring your gayness into the store. I mean, we'll still serve you, but if you can leave the gayness at the door, we would much appreciate it.' Now if that's what they said I highly doubt Tom Ford would go start designing a black Tuscan coffee signature cologne in support of this stance."

It shocking to think how many far-right social conservatives hear this and are like, "Ooh, yeah—Awesome point, dude!" After all, a great many of them do insist on concealed carry status for both firearms and homosexuality.
