6. One is stated in the BoR, one is implied

 

IMHO, a stated right in the BoR would be superior. It would be integral to the foundation of this country.

Whether or not a tiny portion of the population can get government sanction for their relationship (that's what marriage is) doesn't quite stand up to being able to protect yourself from gay bashers (had Matthew Shepard been packing...), or being able to rise up against the government if it declares gays illegal and starts executing them (imagine you're in Iran).

Or we can quit this pointless comparison, and you can join the Pink Pistols, motto: "Armed gays don't get bashed."

I fully support the right of gays to carry weapons. They probably need it more than any other demographic, depending on the attitude of the majority population in the area.
