Skip to comments.State of the Union to Feature Victims of Gun Violence

Langevin, who is serving in his seventh term, has invited one of his constituents, Jim Tyrell, to attend the address. Tyrells sister, Debbie, was murdered in 2004 during a robbery at a convenience store she owned in Providence, R.I.
Langevin is the first quadriplegic to serve in the House. As a 16-year-old, he was injured while working with the Warwick Police Department in a Boy Scout Explorer program when an officer handling a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol thought the chamber was empty, and pulled the trigger. A bullet bounced off a metal locker, striking Langevin in the neck and severing his spinal cord.
Carlos Soto, the brother of Newtown victim Vicki Soto, will attend as a guest of Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn. Vicki Soto has been remembered as a hero for shielding her first grade students in the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting last December.

And the Repubs are too damned stupid to respond with those who’ve saved their own or the lives of others using guns.
They should also be honest and call all the victims who were injured or killed in gun-free zones, “gun-free violence victims” and not “gun violence victims” inasmuch as guns were prohibited where those victimizations occurred.
The Republican response should feature people who have used guns to defend themselves and their families from violent criminals.
No sane citizen should be interested in hearing this liar lecture his betters. But no matter, the crooked networks will juice the ratings as they did with that pitiful inaugural fiasco.
Well that convinced me that only agents of the government should be trusted with firearms. Let's chuck the 2nd amendment.
Then the Repukes.....had they a collective spine....should invite victim’s families of Fast and Furious and Benghazi. But, of course, they won’t.
I guess Langevin is one of those that believe that only police are qualified enough to possess firearms.
FNG TOOL and a gun grabbing pos.
I wouldn’t expect anything less from der Fuhrer and his gestapo. Exploit. Exploit. Exploit.
So langvein was shot by a cop. muy interesante.
Any Chicago victims attending? Yeah I didnt think so..doesn’t fit into Obama’s little agenda now does it
Nooooo are the SANDY HOOK CHOIR going to make another appearance?
Are the two ladies that were delivering newspapers going to be there? That would probably send the wrong message.
Tell the village idiot that when Chicago gun laws are effective at reducing murder, we will discuss how to improve the laws of the nation.
Hint- Hell will freeze over first.
Obozo is a total fraud, a liar and a traitor. And all 3 branches of government know it, and do nothing.
I wonder how many incidents his minions had to sift through to find this fluke accident that fit their agenda?
“If even COPS can’t be trusted....”
der Fuhrer and Gestapo is EXACTLY where the Republicans need to go with their response. Millions upon disarmed millions were murdered by Hitler. That is the REAL risk of losing 2nd Amendment rights. Of course the bumbling Republicans don’t have the nads to bring that up.
Stand-up, Jim, and let 'em see you!
Benghazi should be mentioned. Four Americans lost their lives there....
Rep. Rosa DeLauro,isn’t she the one that looks like a homeless Ron Wood?
IF the NRA had ANY guts at all, they woudl take soem of the 100’s of millions of dolalrs they make and run an ad before and after the address showing a large goup of little old ladies who were SAVED because they had guns i nthe house AND used them! and show mothers who were able to succesfully defend themselves when armed itnruders broke into their homes intendign htem harm, and showing asking the question “If the left thinks the police are all we need for self defence, then how coem 28 children died at Sandy Hook? How come columbine happened? How come Virginia tech happened? The police WERE NOT THERE to protect ANYONE i nthsoe gun free zones! Thety GOT THERE TOO LATE- just as they almsot ALWAYS do! And the NRA should make it clear that IF the police are all we need for protection, then EVERYONE in public office shoudl fire their personal guards and simpyl wait until police arrive AFTER they get to a phone if someoen should threaten them or break into their homes etc- just liek they want all of us to have to do
The Republicans should leave all their guest seats empty to represent the lives destroyed in future generations by the current Dems treasonous overspending.
They’d need the Superdome to house just a tenth of the victims of gun violence from democratically-controlled cities and towns for last year.
Exactly what I was thinking.
I refuse to watch this parade of propaganda.
Every single day 3500 and more babies murdered by Democrats. Day after damned day. For 40 years now. Day after day after day.
Obama and his cronies will NEVER mention what is going on in Chicago because it doesn’t fit their agenda..as long as the shooter is white its worth reporting and using to their advantage..if the shooter is a black gang banging thug not a peep mentioned about it..because the left knows you will never get guns out of the hands of gang bangers, they want the gangs to keep their guns its the rest of us they want to disarm
What about violence and division in General?
Dear Mr. 0
Tuesdays SOTU address is going to be spectacular dog-and-pony-and-bovine excrement. These people are shameless. I’ll be polishing my bulldog, sorry Ham Ham.
Auto-correct says the Rubble kid’s name is ‘Ham-Ham’ and AC is right.
If Marco’s response is not to feature people who have used guns to prevent violent crimes, he’s a moron.
they should have Youtube dreadlock DEA Agent Glock safety guy there.
