Giffords Calls For Gun Control

Senators also hear from NRA on why new laws won’t work

January 31, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) — Severely wounded and still recovering, former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords begged lawmakers at a hearing Wednesday to act quickly to curb firearms because “Americans are counting on you....

Retarded cretins such as boozrboy are devoid of the fact the Norma McCorvey, the "Jane Roe" of the lawsuit FAME now says the case was a BIG MISTAKE, she regrets her decision, and has become Pro Life.

So in 2013, oh enlightened one, there would not BE a Roe versus Wade, at least not from the same person.


Get a education, hayseed hick.

Why is it that most shooters are from the left? Why is it that most hate filled comments come from the left against people that don't think like them? Maybe a gun ban on all left leaning political people should be enacted to keep the guns out of the hands of the crazies?

Gabby Giffords is today's poster girl for the Obama administration that never wastes an opportunity to use an emotion-filled situation for their own best interest.

Ask yourself this - What would Obama's liberal media do if, tomorrow, Ms. Giffords realized that someone could have saved her from this and she wanted to defend gun rights? Would they still respect and air her opinion?

This makes me think of Gabby Douglas, and how she united the US, millions of people, politics aside, watched her performance with pride and joy... until she said "the glory goes to God."

The media didn't know what to do with that. It clearly didn't fit.

@Rover1958. Maybe we have pointed heads and have to reach up to scratch them, but you on the other hand reach behind you to scratch you head and you sit on it.If your IQ was two points lower, you would be an idiot. As for needing more abortions, that is an asinine statement and it would only come out of the mouth of a real loser. You don't care that fetus's are killed everyday? Just disappear into the night, not a person will miss you.

The real tools are a holes on the left. They couldn't find their way out of a storage shed if you showed them the door. They are that stupid.

From guns to 'going green' to the economy to Obamacare to common sense and decency, everything the left does has the direct opposite effect it was suppose to fix; and it usually ends up hurting the tax-paying law abiding citizen. Always.

These people live in a world that does not exist and never will. Moreover, they just can't understand that there are only two kinds of people in this world; those with loaded guns and those who dig.

Walks, I wouldn't say that you are as intelligent as Giffords, but my guess is that you are at least on a par with dubya: IQ92

Rover, I agree with you. The bunch you point out were all born in the decades before Roe v Wade. They are entering old age and it is not one's years but one's attitude that condemns them as zombies.

I have known very old people whose minds are engaged and curious, and these souls are still young. But I have also unfortunately met a few young people whose "inner putrefaction is concealed for a few decades," but who have been old from childhood.

There was somebody near the crowd with a gun. He almost shot one of the heroes who had wrestled the gun from the shooter. Who, by the way, had a 33 round magazine in a 9mm clock and would have killed more if he hadn't dropped a clip while reloading. Learn some facts. Defend the facts. Thus isn't about your stupid 2nd amendment rights. It's about common sense rules about the killing machines we as a society unleash on ourselves.

Yes you are your brothers keeper.

double digit IQ ? I suspect Ms Gifford had higher IQ than myself. I wouldn't have been where she was at that time. Had I been, I'd tried my best to empty a 17 round clip. Some armed person in the crowd, paying attention might have made a difference. What difference ? Anything but what happened.

rover. people come and go. some natural and some the hard way. we all cry a bit harder when they are close to us. We have no right in our time to attempt to correct the past since the stoneage or regulate the future we won't occupy. Being alive is more valuable than being liked.

Those who scratch their pointed heads and wonder aloud why is WV at the bottom of the barrel in state rankings for nearly everything.

The answer my friend, is NOT blowing in the wind....the answer is in the blowhards who posted their double-digit IQ 'opinions' below. There clearly are not nearly enough abortions.

Although I feel sorry for Gabby and those how died in the shooting that injured her, she is clearly being used as a tool. Talk about the 42 this year so far in Chicago, the 5 in Columbus and others in NY, Miami, Atlanta, Philly, Detroit, Dallas,Houston, L.A.,S.F., Seattle, Denver, etc, etc. How many does that add up to? several hundred and it's only the end of's gangs, drugs, thugs.

Good job poster on the 55 million in the womb, the Libs hate that reference and rejoice in their death.

This political HACK is just another flaming liberal gun-grabber who doesn't have a CLUE what end the bullet comes out of!!

First the administration stands on the graves of children like the carnival hucksters they are, now they use this goof as a poster child for their gun control agenda!!

This woman needs to get real. She would do much better to petition against alcohol abuse. Consider the immeasurable damage and cost to peoples lives and economy due to abuse of alcohol. Where is Mrs. Gifford on this?

All the gun control in the world would not have prevented her unfortunate experience of finding herself at the wrong end of a gun.

Just look at the City of Chicago....most stringent gun laws in the nation & yet one of the most deadly cities with hundreds of murders every year. Where is Mrs. Giffords on that?

Life isn't complicated. Spilled coffee, milk, koolaid, are all liquids . Broken leg or arm both hurt. Gold diggers seldom talk bad about the victim sugar daddy until they have the safe combination and keys to their ride. Poor and beggars are careful not to insult the banker. All bankers don't work in banks. Loonie tune clueless liberals vote for issues they seldom understand and make a total mess of the normal American way of life. Biden - Clinton, , Biden - Kerry, Clinton- Powel, 2016 ? Jindal-Ryan ? Ryan- Rubio ?

People from the left sieze upon incidents to provide them with a political springboard to convince all of us that we must not have guns at all. And then we have people on the far right who want everyone to have guns, no background checks, total freedom with firearms. We don't have that kind of freedom with a car, so the loons on the far right tend to just make more ammo for the far left to fire at our basic rights. Leftist see this as an opportunity to disarm America, make it so that no citizen has even the power to protect themselves, people on the right seem to working toward that end as well, being so goofy about the "right" to wear camo and walk around with semi auto AKs. If you go to gun show you see that there is something wrong with the way it is, but if you listen to leftists (Obama) you see this is just an opportunity to make people heel to government, willingly at first. We have never seen actual enforcement of guns laws yet and thats the fault of the Federal G

"Too many children are dying," she said at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. "Too many children. We must do something. It will be hard, but the time is now."

I wonder how she feels about the 55 million "children" that were killed in the womb. Typical Liberal logic.
