C. J. Grisham, the founder of the the group Open Carry Texas told the San Antonio newspaper mySA.com that his group is offering armed escorts for members of the LGBT community during pride events happening this month. He pointed out that Sunday morning's attack in Orlando could have turned out much differently had there been armed citizens on the scene.

Grisham said that any pride event across Texas is eligible for an armed escort, he said. "Absolutely" Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio included.

Good on OCT and I hope the LGBT organizations take them up on it.

Can you imagine the reaction from libs around the country?

Your move Obama/Mommies/Bloomburg. This is genius.

....though.... Open Carry Texas needs to be mindful that they need to be INVITED. If they just show up uninvited to the next LGBT rally carrying slung rifles all the good intentions in the world go right out the window.

We can hope the LGBT community takes them up on the offer, but it needs to be mutually invitational and trusting.

(also keeping my fingers crossed the "next attack" isn't with a bomb because then the display by OCT will be meaningless....)

ROFLMBO!!! No response because they don't know the heck to say!!! Yikes!!! They know they want the protection, because this is a real issue here, but if they take the protection they lose their gun control rant.

True to some extent. But the group they are trying to contact just won a pro 2A case in DC a short time ago.

Think Hillary would stand in front of her Secret Service protection and tell the parade organizers it's not a good idea. That would be hypocrisy in over-drive.

This is a fantastic idea. And if the Over Lords oppose private citizens doing this, I think we should be quick to point out that the rich & famous have private citizens to protect them on a regular basis.

If its good enough for them, it should be good enough for folks of average means.

The attack in Orlando has brought to light(to the lgbt crowd, because we already knew it) that Hillary, and the rest of the left does not actually care about them, or any of these other groups that they pander to. Good on OCT for this.

This is the type of PR we as gun owners need. I think it's a very good idea.
I agree but the PR will never materialize in the mainstream media. I suppose it has been posted here somewhere that Chik-Fil-A opened on Sunday in Orlando and provided chicken for those who were in line to donate blood to the victims. That company has been boycotted by the LGBT and kept out of such places as LA because the owner is very religious and supports traditional marriage. I was pleasantly surprised that some LGBT organizations recognized them for their support but there was not a lot of PR from the MSM. I saw a short clip on Fox but not much else unless I missed it. I do not believe the LGBT community will accept the offer from OCT but I hope I am wrong.

I am afraid that you may very well be correct. Over the years a very good percentage of LGBT folks have been brainwashed into the liberal way of thinking. It is why I stepped away from involvement in LGBT politics decades ago. Its a shame, but that's where things are today. I think that the offer from Open Carry Texas is great. There are large numbers of LGBT people who can be brought around to seeing the value of the Second Amendment, but they are going to have to do that at their own speed. As dingbat pointed out early in this thread, the right way to do it is to offer, but not show up until invited. If the invitation doesn't come today or tomorrow don't give up. Just let them know that they are welcome. Once they trust that this is more than just a publicity stunt they will start to show up. I mean, I can't think of any group that needs to exercise their 2A rights more.

You mean Pink Pistols Int'l? Yeah, but they haven't offered one time to escort anybody anywhere.

I'm all in favor of everyone gets armed and trained and carry. Kudos to C.J. and OCT !

(Did you notice my Rainbow Glock, If I put that on Facebook , do you think it would get NEGATIVE or POSITIVE remarks ?)
