A woman of courage indeed!

" "Over two years ago, when I was shot point-blank in the head, the U.S. Senate chose to do nothing. Four months ago, 20 first-graders lost their lives in a brutal attack on their school, and the U.S. Senate chose to do nothing. It's clear to me that if members of the U.S. Senate refuse to change the laws to reduce gun violence, then we need to change the members of the U.S. Senate." Gabrielle Giffords

Her and her husband are idiot hypocrits... he was called out for recently purchasing an AR 15 and .45 handgun.

Guns not good for the common man, but good for the political class.

Why doesn't she focus on the fact that murder is illegal?

I had great sympathy for Ms. Giffords way back when the shooting by a Left-wing lunatic first happened.

Now I'm just sick and tired of her Perpetual Victim act, and the Obamacrats endless politicizing of tragedies so they can push their anti-second amendment agendas.

Enough already. Just go away and heal yourself, Gabby. Leave the rest of us-- and especially the U.S. Constitution --alone.

More importantly, why don't any of these politicians take this opportunity to discuss the broken mental health care system?

Her opinion. And I have mine. They differ greatly. You want to do something, you deal with mental health and enforce existing laws. You don't promote feel good legislation THAT DOES NOTHING!!!!

The law that just (rightly) went down in defeat wouldn't have prevented Ms. Giffords' assailant from committing his awful crime.

Perhaps it is the "conservative" in your that assumes extremism, but it ain't about call to prohibit gun sales.

Is this the view from the far right gutter where there is no respect for anyone else's opinion???

Must be, I hear it often enough!
