Gabrielle Giffords: The NRA
is an ‘ideological fringe’

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2013 10:32:45 AM

Former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords D-Ariz. launched a new policy group this morning dubbed Americans for Responsible Solutions. The organization calls for government action to stop gun violence. That sounds pretty standard, but in this morning’s USA Today op-ed, Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly specifically criticize the National Rifle Association – signalling that she will directly challenge the group’s influence. Calling the organization an “ideological fringe,” Giffords calls out the NRA leadership’s “defiant and unsympathetic response” to the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. “Rather than working to find the balance between our rights and the

Comments:
Call me cynical, but I wondered why she went to Newtown. Now I know. Is she competent to formulate these comments or are the Democrats feeding them to her? Never let a crisis go to waste indeed.

The crazies are the fringe - not the NRA or gun owners.

Gabby going to Newtown was a sneaky media-driven stunt. Do not let any government -- particularly Obama´s regime -- disarm American citizens. Don´t like it, go somewhere else.

The NRA has tried to get mayors of major cities in the US to stop plea bargaining gun crimes, to enforce current law using Project Exile. What has this democrat ever done to prosecute gun crime and why is she bent on disarming women subjecting them to pain and suffering at the hands of criminals? You would think she would stop this pandering and do something to stop gun crime. Instead she is working to increase it.

We are NOT an "ideological fringe". In fact, our values represent most of red America, conservative America.

Calling the organization an “ideological fringe,” Giffords calls out the NRA leadership’s “defiant and unsympathetic response” to the school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

What was "defiant and unsympathetic" about the NRA´s response? The fact we didn´t lay down our arms immediately, wring our hands and wear a pink ribbon? What the hell is she talking about?

Because she is a Democrat and because she went thru a horrendous ordeal when she was shot, she thinks that places her standing higher than any other Democrat´s standing on this issue?

Go away, Gabby. You´re an opportunist. And by the way, do you have personal, armed security following you around to public appearances? Hm? Should he give up his gun? You okay with that?

"Balance" and "Reasonable Solutions" would suggest the institutionalization of the pschologically infirmed who present a danger to themselves and the public at large, not the infringement of an explicitly protected right.

The "fringe"-sort of thinking means denying God-given rights to every single American at the expense of a possibly, maybe, but not very likely to be effective effort to prevent such massacres.

If every right were subject to such "balance" where would it end? Offensive words? Inconvenient religious beliefs?

When one lives in the isolated world of the elite left I can see how the common American would appear to be on the fringe.

At least I agree with her on one point. We have seen far too much death to stand idly by. We saw it in Hitler´s Germany, Stalin´s USSR, Mao´s China. We must guard against the lunacy of the uneducated fringe that believe a disarmed society is a safe society. Perhaps that´s not quite what she means.

Giffords continues to be exploited by her political opportunist husband, Kelly.

He rushed to blame the tea party for the killing and maiming and never apologyzed.

He has moved to Arizona from Texas and you can count on him running for McCain´s senate seat.

Had I been shot like Gabby Giffords, I too might be angry and on a crusade against firearms. Or, if I had brain damage, I might be influenced by others on such a crusade. James Brady, I believe, was put to this purpose after the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan which left Brady severely injured.

I might think and feel and act just the way such unfortunate victims do. But I wouldn´t necessarily be right, not just because I was the victim of a gun wielding assailant. Getting shot like that would confer no special wisdom or insight or even morality upon me. Indeed, it would if anything give grounds to doubt my perspective and objectivity on the issue of gun control.

Gabby Giffords and others were gunned down by a raving lunatic who everybody that had dealt with him for years KNEW to be a raving, dangerous lunatic. People were afraid of him. He was bizarre, threatening, paranoid and inappropriate in class. He was suspended from school pending a note from a psychiatrist -which he never obtained- saying it was safe for him to return. Four armed sheriff´s deputies delivered the suspension to his home. Yet no attempt was ever made by anyone, beginning with his parents, to force him to have a psychiatric evaluation.

Ms. Giffords is not thinking deep thoughts about anything. She will say what is put in front of her at an interview. Does anyone really think she herself "wrote" or even thought up that statement about the NRA? Her husband wants to be relevant and make some money. What better way than to solicit contributions for a foundation that will need a CEO and spokesman--him. His wife is just the smiling figurehead.

How awful it must be to be surrounded by users who would exploit your victimhood. There will be enough talk about "her" views and opinions, aided by the unwillingness to challenge her sainthood, that the public will be convinced that she´s ready to hold office again. If you say anything against her, it will be considered "mean-spirited."

Why are we so upset that this Democrat is simply stating; loudly and proudly, that the entire Democrat party is as racist as racist can be? That they HATE black people and want to see them dead?

We all know that the NRA was set up to ensure that Blacks; post emancipation and 14th Amendment ratification, were armed when DEMOCRATS came to deny them the full status of citizen that the REPUBLICANS fought and DIED for!!!

The Democrat party is THE party of Slavery and Racism!!!!
Always has been, always will be.

The liberal Democrats will never admit that the problem is with the mentally ill and not the NRA, as the mental health industry and the mentally ill are liberal Democrat constituency groups, while the NRA and the small arms and related industries in the USA are conservative oriented constituency groups. Like almost everything else the politicians deal with, when you get to the bottom line, this is all political, and will have little affect in the future on dangerous mentally ill people who decide to perpetrate mass shootings, to bring attention to themselves while on their personal suicide missions.

Without wishing to offend Gabrielle Giffords, from what I´ve seen of her recently, I´m not sure she could either think of nor articulate the words ‘ideological fringe’ without much effort. Obviously, she is being offered as a mouthpiece for the Democrat party in the gun control debate. They should be ashamed for taking advantage of a disabled person, but we all know that shame is not a Democrat sensibility.

It is standard Leftist Orwellian practice to refer to political opponents as the fringe, extremists, radicals, out of the mainstream, etc.

Every single thing -every single thing, no exceptions- advocated by the militant Left today is contrary to the values, traditions, customs and practices of the Republic until the last half century. Abortion, marijuana, pornography and public obscenity, speech codes, political correctness, big government, normalization of homosexuality, hostility to religion(Islam excepted), anti-Americanism, class warfare, redistribution of wealth, more government regulations, private and public immorality, diversity, quotas, affirmative action, huge government debt, multiculturalism, lax or no border security, women in combat, government health care and, of course, attempts to restrict private ownership of firearms.

The mendacity of the Left is breathtaking. It amply confirms the "Big Lie" theory of Hitler et al., that if one lies boldly and brazenly enough, the masses will ultimately be persuaded that it is the truth. No one, they would reason, could possibly say such things repeatedly unless they were true.

It is the Left that is radical, extremist, innovative, and destructive of all traditions, norms and values in its quest for a brave new world. But time and time again Leftists and their media mouthpieces tell us that it is normal, traditional, everyday Americans, those whose beliefs and standards have changed little or not at all, who are the extremists, the radicals, and the fringe.

Councilor Josh Zakim, who represents the area, confirmed the firefighters´ deaths. Details of how the firefighters died weren’t immediately available, The Boston Globe reported.

A federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled that Kansas can strip two Planned Parenthood clinics of federal family planning money while the organization moves forward with its legal challenge of a state law it says is retaliation for its advocacy of abortion rights. Kansas is among several conservative states that have sought in recent years to strip Planned Parenthood of funding. At issue in Tuesday´s ruling is money distributed to states under Title X, a federally financed family planning program. The Title X money targets low-income individuals seeking reproductive services such as birth control, pregnancy testing, cancer screenings and treatment for

Since the start of the year, when it at last became clear that an ill-designed website was merely the least of Obamacare´s problems, Democrats have been on a search for a plausible villain on whom this sad state of affairs can be blamed. E.J. Dionne blames Republican nastiness, but he blames this for everything. Alec MacGillis at the New Republic blames Republican governors who rejected the expansion of Medicare: "Obamacare is hurting Democratic candidates because Republicans are hurting Obamacare," runs his article´s headline. Well, that explains why the exchanges in Maryland, Oregon and Colorado are all in such chaos: If

Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson said Tuesday that the United States “should be pleased” about Russia annexing the Crimea, calling it “a virtually bloodless transfer of power.” At a Foreign Affairs Committee mark-up Tuesday, Grayson said that the referendum in Crimea was the entirely legitimate vote by a group of people who were upset that their chosen leader, ousted Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, had been removed from office. The role of Russian forces, in his telling, was simply that of peacekeeper. “You may say that [Yanukovych] was thrown out of office for good reason. There are allegations against him that he was

Politics: The president journeys to the Vatican following assaults on religious liberty from Hobby Lobby to the Little Sisters of the Poor and an unrelenting attack on the First Amendment´s religious freedom guarantees. President Barack Obama travels to Vatican City to meet Pope Francis for the first time on Thursday, no doubt hoping for a bump in the polls among Catholic voters this November and a Papal blessing in his change-the-subject-from-ObamaCare focus on income inequality.

In 2009, Jared Bernstein helped craft President Obama´s economic stimulus law in the White House, directing over $800 billion in taxpayer funds to various liberal priorities. On Tuesday, he endorsed a famous and important tenet of Marxism in an open congressional hearing. “Dr. Bernstein, if I utter the phrase to you ‘from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs,’ do you look upon that generally favorably or generally unfavorably?” Rep. Mick Mulvaney asked the former top economic adviser to Vice President Joe Biden at Tuesday’s House Financial Services Committee hearing. “Generally favorably,” Bernstein answered, to which

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard. He got a scholarship to a

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied. On the same day, Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and
