"We've run into a basic divide here, and I think it's based on an awful lot of political ideology," Patton says in the story. "The stereotype of those on the right is that they don't like gays but they do like guns, and then there's the opposite stereotype, that if you're on the left you don't like guns but you do like gays. That perspective is based on the premise that gay people should give up their right to self defense, give up their right to guns, so they can get their gay rights from the politicians who support gun control. I personally don't like that. Why do we have to give up some rights?"
