MAKPA Quote of the Hour
This one comes from Tony Adamici, president of the New York City chapter of Pink Pistols, a group of homosexual firearms rights advocates, speaking on The Brian Lehrer show on WNYC this morning:
"I don't think being progressive-minded means you check your right to self-defense at the door."Actually, though, removing guns from society is one of the central tenets of progressivism/liberalism, and the movement is not a "big tent."
(A look at the Pink Pistols' web site, however, shows them endorsing Libertarian candidates for various offices. While the Libertarian Party certainly pledges to defend the right to own and carry guns, they are most certainly not progressive in the sense Adamici used the term.)
