On Point

As we expand, serving to welcome the needs of our community, the Phoenix Chapter of the Pink Pistols has evolved anew band of brethren to form the Valley of the Sun Pink Pistols. We are still the same great group, just larger and now with your help, more diverse.

The Valley of the Sun Pink Pistols gather several times a month at local firing ranges to practice shooting, and to acquaint people new to firearms with them. We will help you select a firearm, acquire a permit, and receive proper training in its safe and legal use for self-defense. The more people know that members of our community may be armed, the less likely they will be to single us out for attack. Join us today. It is your RIGHT.

"Thirty-one states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. " --Jonathan Rauch, Salon Magazine, March 13, 2000
