Giffords, Mark Kelly Announce Tour to Push for More Background Checks
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | June 25, 2013 | Tony Lee

Posted on 06/26/2013 9:57:35 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) and her husband Mark Kelly will embark on a multi-state tour on July 1st to push for expanded background checks on gun purchasers.

Kelly's gun-control group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, announced the "Rights and Responsibilities" Tour on Tuesday. Giffords and Kelly will try to gin up more support for expanded background checks after an amendment sponsored by Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) failed in April.

“I’ve been around guns my whole life, and I know that as an American, my right to own a firearm goes hand in hand with my obligation to be a responsible gun owner and to do my part to make sure guns don’t fall into the hands of criminals or dangerously mentally ill people,” Kelly said in a statement. “Gabby and I are excited to hit the road this summer and meet so many of the great Americans who are standing with us to fight for common-sense solutions to prevent gun violence and protect our rights.”

They will start the tour in Nevada on July 1 st before making stops in Alaska, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota and Ohio, according to the group.(continued)

a liberal who was pissed gabby wasn’t liberal enough for him, shot her. the breaking point for the nutjob was she didn’t vote for pelosi as leader. liberal sheriff and liberal parents knew this guy was nuts for years, didn’t do squat.

Don’t forget that the jag-off who shot Kelly’s wife was already a protected member of the lunatic left who wouldn’t have been caught in one of these background checks anyway.

Mark Kelly see’s no problem with his owning 17 round magazines for his Glock, but comes to MY STATE and testifies about how vitally important to public safety it is that I not be allow to own the same magazine.

Mark Kelly is a fascist, a liar, a hypocrite, and a disgrace.

Their group is advertising (a la Barack O when campaigning) a trip you can win to have lunch with Gabby and Mr. Gabby, in Maine.

NO. Like that scabrous piece of filth Sarah Brady, there's good money in playing the pious, attentive spouse to the wounded innocent victim of the horrible NRA.

Pious frauds ...

I have boundless contempt for these foul folk.

"...my right to own a firearm goes hand in hand with my obligation to be a responsible gun owner and to do my part to make sure guns don’t fall into the hands of criminals or dangerously mentally ill people,

Umm...I must have missed that part of it under 2nd amendment. Is that next to where you people keep saying it only applies to deer hunters and injun' fighters with black powder front stuffers?

“Gabby and I are excited to hit the road this summer

The world would be a better place if they would pull a Ted Kennedy and drive into the ocean.

Gabby loves her guns. But not YOUR right to own them. WOW! Is that a 30 round magazine or not!

And HUBBY has a GLOCK with a magazine that is way oversized!

Giffords and husband, also known as Charley McCarthy and Edgar Bergen. Collectivists using carnage to advance an agenda.

There's money involved in this. Kelly's getting some kind of pay day or working toward one. The US Congress is a great place to get rich, taking a salary for running a "non-profit" etc.

There is a contest to be flown to Maine to meet with Ms. Giffords and Mr. Kelly. You can enter without making any payment, and although the contest rules do provide them with a backdoor to refuse a winner, it would be a great chance to have lunch with them and respectfully advocate for other options, or inform them of how voters actually feel about their proposals.

Enter the contest here

Plus the winner does get a lobster dinner, and a visit to Maine, both of which would be worth winning even if you did have to listen to some leftist drivel.

Maybe they should perform background checks when McCain unloads the gun shipment in Syria.
