I wouldnt want to be put in a situation like that either. Being gay in TX isnt necessarily easy, its "gods country" out there esp in the more rural parts. On top of that going into a gun range/shop means that the people are most likely conservative, so conservative texans with guns. . . . . doesnt seem too gay friendly to me.
I'm sorry but i find automatically making assumptions about people you don't normally converse with and whose lifestyle is different than yours based on stereotypes to be pretty ignorant , even when it's coming from the left side of the field.
