Breitbart.com ^ | 11/8/2013 | A.W.R. Hawkins

Posted on 11/09/2013 8:55:47 AM PST by rktman

The gun control PAC of Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, is launching a new initiative, "Veterans for Responsible Solutions."

According to CNN, the new initiative "will support Giffords and Kelly's wider efforts by bringing to bear the experience of military veterans who've sworn to defend the Second Amendment."

Kinda like jim and sarah, these two will stay in the limelight for no particular reason. Other than to be a thorn in the side of people who actually understand the 2nd amendment and the restrictions that are supposed to be put on the government. Not on the people.

There is one thing I learned about while assigned to a Joint-ops unit. There is a world of difference between front-line troops and REMFs...These clowns are REMFs (Talk big but never walked the walk)

LOL! Replaced, apparently, with unregulated idiocy. Can’t legislate stupidity. It used to occur in nature but now has lots of help from dems and libs. Those that live with the unicorns in rainbow land.

It’s not that. It was the bullet which effed’ up her tiny brain. What’s sickening is that Buttcrack Odumbo assigned a ship with her name on it.

As a veteran myself, the issue of Victim Opportunists Mark and Gabrielle Giffords aside, the rights of a veteran with respect to the second amendment hold no more weight than the least of American citizens.

When rights, responsibilities, opportunities and duties are concerned, no on holds sway over the other. This is why I always get pissed when I hear, the Junior Senator from....or one old fart Senator whose been in the Senate since his prostate went south complains about another new-buck Senator (like Cruz). The old fart can stick it up his dried out sphincter. IMO, his job, the representation of one of 50 states holds no more power than someone just elected from another.

That is not as bad at the USNS CESAR CHAVEZ. At least Giffords was a Congress Woman, which came close to being the second Congressperson to murdered “on duty”.

Anyway, I dont like a ship named after her.

"Gabby Giffords, Mark Kelly Launch Veterans Group for Gun Control"

Giffords has squandered any sympathy I, and many others like me, had for her after the attempt on her life. Kelly has squandered any respect I, and many others like me, had for his service to the country. They are both the enemies of our Constitutional rights, and the principles upon which our Republic were founded. I will oppose them with every fiber of my being, and I'm sure my fellow veterans will as well.

BTW, why isn't Mark Kelly in jail after that attempted straw buy of the AR-15 and .45 a few months back? Hmmmmmmmmmmm?

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

I see Kelly has decided to expand his new group, “Mark and the Meat Puppet.”

REMFs....love that term.

Most of the Obama crowd would also aptly be named in the rear with the gear (and all that implys).

I also loved the term Remington Raider but with the advent of the PCs, the beloved Remington Typewriters are long gone.

...the new initiative "will support Giffords and Kelly's wider efforts by bringing to bear the experience of military veterans who've sworn to defend the Second Amendment."...

Funny, my oath was to defend the entire Constitution, no compromise.

Along with Kelly, Veterans for Responsible Solutions say they are not seeking "to repeal or limit the Second Amendment." They just want "universal background checks."

First Kelly, any time you start with "We're not trying to do X, just Y..." That is incrementalism. You are consciously eroding away at X. You know it, I know it. No way.

Second - so called "universal background checks" already exist. What they are talking about is stupidity, pure and simple. In Colorado they passed "universal background checks" even though we already had them. They have some notion that there will be a background check for all private transfers - not just sales but anytime someone else is going to be "in control" of your firearms for more than 72 hrs. That includes not just lending someone a firearm for target practice or a hunting trip, but the house sitter while you're on vacation etc. Idiocy.

Does anyone believe criminals will conduct background checks on each other? Hey, great idea! Why don't we just pass a law that says all private drug transactions have to be conducted at a pharmacy with a prescription? That should end the illegal drug trade - no more meth, heroine, coke, etc. Right? These people are fools, dangerous fools.

I still find it stupid and criminal that our troops are in danger while living on our very own military base.

If a serviceman can’t protect himself on a military base——that’s just wrong.

Ft Hood comes to mind.

Too many people lose someone of have someone injured by something and then they over react by wanting to never face the fact that sometimes bad crap just happens...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Chavez and Giffords are just the tip of the iceberg.
If they EVER get a super majority in House and Senate look for clowns like Frank, Obama, JF’nKerry, joebame etal being ‘honored’ with ships being named after them...Of course the “harvey milk” crowd will be beating down the doors.
Look for the ‘Village People’ to replace the Navy Band.

ANYONE who doesn’t/didn’t think we were not going to pay dearly for Reagan/Bush/Ford etal is surely mistaken.

I am also afraid the next Supreme Court Justice will be someone along the lines of either Clintoon, MOOCHELLE or even Valerie Jarret though she will probably hold out for something ‘bigger’, of course Obozo is in the running for anything.

Put a Black Female up for nomination and just about everyone in the House/Senate will be clamoring to endorse her, and, naturally she will have none of the process that chased C Thomas around the ring...

It’s for money and attention. Neither of them can do anything useful, so they want to make money this way.

Never been in the service myself, but I've heard the term "PowerPoint Rangers" used on FR.

The US Military Oath consists of two parts:

1) Support and defend the Constitution against all enemies...and remain faithful to the Constitution...

2) Obey orders of CIC and Officers according to UCMJ regulations...

My point was that Marky Mark wants vets to comply with the Obey Orders part only, and they cannot without compromising their Oath.
