Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords
and husband Mark Kelly launch
gun control initiative

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2013 11:21:37 AM

Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband launched an initiative aimed at curbing gun violence on Tuesday, the second anniversary of the Tucson shooting that killed six people and left her critically injured. Giffords and Mark Kelly wrote in an op-ed published in USA Today that their Americans for Responsible Solutions initiative would help raise money to support greater gun control efforts. "Achieving reforms to reduce gun violence and prevent mass shootings will mean matching gun lobbyists in their reach and resources," they wrote in the column.

Comments:
It is really sick and twisted to use Newtown for political purposes like the Democrats have done.

A truthful headline would read:

"launch attack on US Constitution"


Oh - and in Aurora, Colorado - it was disclosed yesterday that police removed several prescription bottles from the apartment of the Aurora theater shooter.

Who´s surprised? LeftMedia certainly aren´t bothering to highlight that bit.

Well, as I´ve been saying for decades, LPs (Libtards/Progtards) really are sick and twisted (as well as a clear and present danger to the Republic) - they´re LPs, what did you expect.

We´re in a war, but not too many non-LPs seem to realize that yet. I hope they wake up before it´s too late, because they seriously outnumber the sick and twisted LPs, but can´t win if they won´t fight the war (and treat it seriously as a war).

Mind altering drugs, prescription drugs pushed on children, produce this murderous rage and confusion. It´s this stimulant to madness that will perpetuate this behavior. Don´t be stupid, the disease is in the mind, and the disarming of the citizen supports the tyrant, who´s agenda is to promote chaos like this, so that you are defenseless to stop it. Communist Russia, Communist China, Nazi Germany, now the communists in the White House all want you defenseless against them. Give up your guns to them and be their stooge. Rights are to be exercised, and now. Obama is not your friend.

Seems like there are a lot of initiatives started after something happens. Just name it and you´ll find this group or that group always someone who wants to so called be outfront of something. It´s sad that this happened to Giffords but I´m sure that in any big city hospital there are many that it has happened to. It´s calls crazy people and the rest is gang mentality.

She was shot by an individual who used a legally-purchased semi-automatic handgun. Short of banning such a weapon from possession, what´s the intent of their "gun control" initiative?

I´ve yet to see a gun jump up and kill someone. In every case, there was a person squeezing the trigger, every time.

So if a gun can´t kill anybody on it´s own, shouldn´t the attention be toward the shooter, the mental health of the person and the moral health of our culture and our society instead?

According to Democrats, No! Democrats want to live the most perverse and destructive lifestyles without any consequences. They want no moral judgments, not moral standards and nobody telling them what is right or wrong. In a world where there is no morals and no absolutes, the only way to maintain a society is to romove anything that will hurt us. It´s much easier than making moral judgments and holding people responsible for their actions.

The problem is, government cannot create eneough laws and regulations to make people moral. But Democrats can´t quit trying because the alternative is obedience to God... and they have no use for God... after all, they like being God.

"Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband..."

The operative word in that phrase being "former." She is no longer in Congress, and he is just the "husband of a former." So they are now just two more aimless celebrities, running from camera to camera in a desperate attempt to hog attention to themselves. They actually showed up in Newtown. They have crossed the line and are now just icky. Should we watch for their appearance on a reality TV show?

Well, I see both have repudiated their oaths to support and defend the Constitution.

Murder is illegal everywhere. That doesn´t seem to help stop evil crazy people, though. Nor will it ever, barring a huge change in human nature.

It´s not about the guns. It´s all about control.

That the liberal Democrats are really after is the conservative oriented small arms industry and all the other firearms related industries in the USA. If those industries are wiped out by a ban on the production and sale of almost all modern firearms, the liberal Democrats believe that they would also wipe out the NRA. In doing that the liberal Democrats would also be wiping out tens of thousands of well paying American jobs.

By doing that, the liberal Democrats are also distracting attention away from a liberal Democrat constituency group, the combined mental health industry, and the mentally ill themselves, who have perpetrated just about all the mass shootings as most of those people tried to bring attention to themselves while on their personal suicide missions.

Gabby unnecessarily insulted her nutty shooter at a prior meet up in front of a crowd. He asked a nonsensical question thinking he was being erudite and she blew him off, letting him know what she thought of him. His fragile ego then needed revenge. She was always a bit of a smart alec, as I understand it.
Did she deserve to get shot? No. Would the nutcase have exploded at some point at someone else? Very likely.
The fact is that liberal killer from a liberal household was a fan of hers until the insult. All things never to be mentioned.

If he had run her down with his truck, would we be hearing about ´truck control´ or about the need to deal with lunatics running loose?

The inanimate object is easy to blame by the intellectually lazy that are unwilling to realize that a certain minority of mentally unstable people just cannot be wandering loose. But this might hurt somebody´s feelings and would require hard choices and difficult, adult decision making. Easier to attack a "bad" object. Simplistic, ignorant totemism.

As I have some experience working with brain injured patients, I think the commenter who suggested the ventriliquist and the puppet is close to the mark.

Given the location, and severity of her wound, I don´t think her cognitive skills are strong enough to co-write anything. The last time I saw her speak, it was halting, painful and cued by Mark Kelly.

And it was the Pledge of Allegiance.

Report: Wendy Davis caught

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
