´Now is the time´: Gabrielle
Giffords and husband talk
gun regulation in Vogue

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/13/2013 12:49:02 PM

TUCSON, Ariz. — Former US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, talk about their continued push for gun regulation in the upcoming issue of Vogue magazine. The couple has formed a political action committee in hopes of preventing gun violence and changing laws to require compulsory background checks for gun buyers. The PAC will also work to limit the size of ammo magazines and to ban the sale of assault weapons to civilians. Kelly said "now is the time" to do something in the wake of recent mass shootings in Colorado and Connecticut.

Comments:
Uhh, is Vogue magazine the right venue for this? I don´t buy that magazine, but it would be nice that politics didn´t interfere with every single thing in this society. I´m not sure all the fashionistas will be thrilled with this.

The kind of regulations that the Kelly´s propose would not have prevented the tragedy that befell them. More regulation will only affect those that are willing to be regulated. This of course exempts criminals and people with ill intent!

I would feel a lot more inclined to listen to these twits if any of their proposals would do anything to stop her shooting or the school shootings.

Even if they were to propose confiscation of all weapons it would not stop these shootings any more than banning heroin stops people from selling it to teenagers.

If Vogue is an ok venue for gun conrol, then the Prayer Breakfast was appropriate for Dr. Ben Carson.

"Now is the time" to take away our 2nd Amendment rights?

"Now is the time" to take away one of our civil rights?

"Now is the time" to take away a God given right?

Naaa. I don´t think so.

Why not background checks before buying or transferring a computer or smart phone?

These ´horrible devices´ are commonly used by criminals to steal identities and millions of dollars. We can´t have just anyone owning one of these weapons of mass spamming and fraud.

Makes just as much sense. The gun is an inanimate object, and like a computer, car or hammer, can be used for good or evil.

Vogue is best known for the glowing, gushing puff piece they did - a cover feature - on the wonderful Assad family of Syria. Published about the time he was slaughtering the Syrian people.

Her injury is really a tragedy, but none of the laws they propose would have prevented this happening. We have a society that is decaying from within. Mental health patients who are not being contained because the liberals decide even the mentally ill have rights.

This most partisan GG is responsible for her own injuries and the deaths of Judge Roll and others.
She knew she was being stalked by Loughner and did not have sufficient protection for herself and those attending the rally.
The Sheriff did not even have a car there.
GG should own up to her own negligence and willful arrogance.

These gun-grabbing creeps are certifiable. There is not a gun problem, there is a people problem. Norway was the site of one of the worst mass shootings in history. Guns are illegal -- no one around for miles to take the maniac out. Mexico has banned guns but has a murder rate 1 that of the US. Gun banning is not Constitional, it is also not a political priority according to polls. Gun grabbers want to transform citizens into docile sheep. GOP should have invited stabbing victims. We need to ban knives because they kill more people than rifles. Slap a ribbon on yourself and all of a sudden your high and mighty.

It appears to me that Mark Kelly (Mr. Gabrielle Giffords) is simply angelling for some overpaid appointment from the Fraud in the White House. That is the typical MO of the Chicago Thugery regime that dimwits and fraudulent votes have put in power. Stand by......appointment will follow.

No one will explain why there isn´t a register of convicted felons or those who have been committed to a psychiatric institution. Just make those registers available to FFL (federal firearms listing) agents. The problems always arise when you want to do an invasive check of someone for owning a gun which is your right guaranteed by the constitution.

It is obvious that someone with the brain damage GG suffered is being coached and coaxed into being paraded around to give these Liberal gun-grabbibg speeches.

1. Sorry, but getting shot awards no special insights on or standing to comment on any given issue.

2. "Now is the time to do something"? So, Mark, you´re a NASA guy. Is that how the Apollo team got Apollo 13 back to earth? Took the "do something!" course of action?

Is that how the Russians launched and brought back the Soyuz capsules we paid a ton of money for you to fly in? The Flight Director tells the team, "Do something!"?

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll.

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds?

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
