Giffords visits gun range, launches gun control tour [Exploitation apalooza]

Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords kicked off a seven-state tour Monday to advocate for universal gun background checks.

Giffords and husband Mark Kelly started their day in Las Vegas demonstrating that they, too, are gun owners. Giffords fired a gun at a shooting range.

It's the first time she's used a gun since a deranged gunman shot her in the head in 2011. A dozen other people were also wounded and six more were killed.

Giffords, who's still recovering from the attack, is speaking up for change....

... Mark Kelly says he and his wife have asked for a meeting with the NRA leadership on the issue, but so far no meeting has been granted....

Yeah, like the NRA would REALLY have reason to trust you, Kelly.

The way Giffords is being exploited by her husband and party makes me want to vomit. It is beyond pornographic.

Mr Giffords is a ventriloquist, and his wife is the puppet. Collectivists, in their arrested maturity, have no problem with this.

Maybe it was too soon for her to go to the range.

This is the new Jim and Sarah Brady.

Because they are trying to pressure Senator Heller to vote for gun control....to change his vote.

A shakedown trying to play on sympathy.

Maybe Mark Kelly brought his 17 round Glock magazine which he think is OK for him to have. After he came to MY STATE and testified about how public safety requires that I no be able to have the same magazine. Mark Kelly is a lying, fascist, hypocrite.

Before this is all over they will crossbreed Jim Brady with Gaby Gifford to get the ultimate Gun Control Love Child.

You have to hand it to politicians. They truly are shameless.

I thought the same thing.

The writing and editing at todays publications are in line with their high moral standards.

You got that right.

The only people who should lose their gun rights are unexpurgated felons and brain damaged or insane people.

Poor Gabby qualifies for both the two latter instances.

Giffords is being exploited

What makes you think that Giffords is not fully on board with this?

More than that, she should be on every “no sale” list in the country. And, yet, she demonstrates, like any good democrat that “guns are good for me, but not for thee.”

The fact that Goofy Giffords is on board does not mean she is not being exploited.

There is money, a lot of money, involved

These two psychotic nut-jobs probably didn’t like the attention in AZ being paid to the dead Hotshots. Like the creepiest of horror movies, the ventriloquist and his puppet just had to surface. Being a leftist elite and wounded always trumps dozens of true heroes tortorous deaths.

IMO, she has the mind of a child now. Very VERY impressionable, and dependent upon everyone for her well-being.

She is not stupid, but an independent thinker with the shot to the head? I just don’t believe it. She has been well-protected and every move choreographed...and she has not been allowed (or able?) to move out of the rehearsed, written mode of speaking.

I know a lot of this has to do with the injury. I believe most of her actions are her doing what she MUST do by handlers....a normal, non-brain damaged/shot Gabby would not be pushed around like what is currently happening. In my opinion.

It's the first time she's used a gun since a liberal deranged gunman shot her in the head in 2011.

Fixed?

That's right. A background check would show that her reduced mental capacity should impede her judgement, therefor making it illegal to have or use guns.

Ever notice that in her photos lately, she looks like the lights are on, but nobody is at home.
