Couldn’t help but think of Ray Carter when I saw this article…
The Pink Pistols describe themselves as a group “dedicated to the legal, safe, and responsible use of firearms for self-defense of the sexual-minority community,” helping LGBT individuals who want to learn how to shoot.
One of the more ‘interesting’ comments to me, is this one…
“I’m seeing an improvement because I hang around with a lot of conservatives, I reach out, I turn the other cheek so to speak, but we can have dialogue. And when you start having dialogue, you start seeing people as people rather than us and them. Then that starts people taking a look at coming up with solutions, or addressing problems and coming up with solutions that are acceptable to both sides.”

Ray always said it wasn’t about what a person’s ‘persuasion’ was, it was about shooting and personal safety. He never felt ‘pressured’ by any of us to be anything other than what he was. The one incident I will always remember was at NRA Houston, when he confronted the protesters and went full ‘High Queen’ on them. I have never seen so much confusion in my lift… ROTF!
Ray worked for 2AF, and very successfully too! He’s gone too soon, but it’s nice to see something he helped start is still succeeding!
