An LGBT activist shares why she supports the Second Amendment

Piper Smith is the founder and director of a SoCal-based LGBT Self Defense Civil Rights group that is “dedicated to strengthening the defenses of the SoCal LGBT community, and are 100% open to LGBT- and firearm-friendly individuals as well.

Piper says training professional armed guardians and providing the tools necessary for all to defend themselves and their community is much more effective than any attempt at banning firearms. Though she recognizes that violence involving firearms is a problem, she questions whether those in favor of increased firearm laws fully understand underlying problems such as mental health issues and the failure of government enforcement of existing laws.

“Just because we have a problem doesn’t mean another law will bring an effective solution,” Piper said.
