LGBT Groups Take Up Weapons – level 1

03-11-2017 07:00

In the USA, some LGBT groups learn to shoot. This is because the extreme right is getting stronger. This scares them.

A woman says that LGBT people need to be armed. A man says that people think that LGBT people are not strong. Now they are strong.

However, one man does not like this. He says that it is a problem. It is a problem when so many people have weapons.

Difficult words: LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transsexual people), extreme right (people who want everyone to be the same), armed (have and know how to use weapons).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
