The meeting of the nation's largest gun rights group "will be a great celebration of freedom" in a city where 1 million of the NRA's 3.5 million members live within a four-hour radius, said spokesman Andrew Arulanandam....

One thing about these marxist leftists - they have no shame, none at all. I remember how they used former Reagan Press Secretary James Brady in a like manner.

Then, when it’s over, these people get thrown out like used towels.

Hard to forget when all the Tucson and Phoenix papers do anymore is run incessant stories (sometimes 3-5 a day), updating us on every detail of her vacation to see the shuttle.

I’m sick of this Giffords BS and hand wringing. Giffords should be a reminder to all goverment officials at all levels of what should happen if they attempt to restrict the rights of citizens in any way. Unfortunately too many people are all too willing to give up their guns to preserve their happy existence.
