Hello all,

I go by Breezy and one of the co-organizers for GWG. I'm the 'B' in the LGBTQ+ alphabet. Thanks to all for the support and happy to find the larger community of CGN as well.

My journey started following the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting. Two unsettling thoughts kept ringing with me: 1) as often as I may feel safe in queer oriented spaces, nothing is guaranteed and 2) there was a lot of buzz about gun control legislation and I didn't have the ability to formulate a strong opinion on something I knew nothing about.

Through this, I found GWG, took time to educate myself, and now find advocacy for individual rights to bare arms. I superficially understood why 2A exists but didn't comprehend it. Today, more than ever, I stand by good ol' Ben Franklin when he said: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
