Gabrielle Giffords Shoots Gun During Start of Gun-Control Tour
Yahoo News (ABC) ^ | 7/2/2013 | Shushannah Walshe

Two and half years after being shot in the head, former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords visited a shooting range and fired a gun, her first stop on a seven-state, seven-day bus tour to push for expanded background checks for firearms purchases.

Accompanied by her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, on their "Rights and Responsibilities Tour," Giffords, wearing a green cardigan and an arm brace, smiled and waved after she shot the gun at the Clark County Shooting Complex in Las Vegas. Kelly also got in some target practice at the range.

This was the first time Giffords shot a gun since a mentally ill man shot her and killed six others in her congressional district in Tucson, Ariz., in early 2011.

Laura shoots; denies rest of nation that right?

Fascism is interestingly subtle.

There are no exceptions to the 2nd amendment.

Stay home Laura.

I saw the video. She was firing a pistol at a target eight feet away. Her right and was in a sling, so it looks like she’s reached all the level of recovery she’s going to reach. To me, she’s little more than a prop that’s being completely exploited by her attention-seeking husband.

Of course she’s just a prop. That’s all she was when Wasserman Schultz trotted her out at the democRAT convention. Those around her have no qualms treating her as such and she’s apparently in no condition to know any better.

I wonder if whether or not “Mr. Giffords” has entertained the irony of a cerebrally deficient individual possessing a lethal weapon. ( I know, I’m cruel)

That’s a valid point. The anti-gun kooks want to restrict the legal use of guns by law-abiding citizens who have all their faculties and to make their case they put a gun in the hands of a woman who needs help walking across a stage. It’s a strange tack for certain.

No, you’re not. And, I’m sure if they get their way LOTS and LOTS of people with one infirmity or another wouldn’t be allowed to own a gun.

Not really, it is just a really lame and transparent ploy, just like "I'm John Kerry and whur kin ah git me a huntin license."

They, Mark Giffords and the gun grabbers behind them are trying to put a message out that says, "we're only doing this for reasonable control - see, we still like guns, even Gabby likes to shoot one!"

It is the hallmark of their Blitzkrieg Confiscation Tour, "Rights and Responsibility"....

I always thought Nasa was some kind of military tech communist funneling scheme to the civilian government power increase. I know Carl Sagan was an avowed Trotzkist.

I don’t care if she BUILDS a gun. Maniacs and criminals don’t obey gun laws. Gun laws are about disarming law abiding citizens not disarming criminals.

Accompanied Frog-marched by her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, on their "Rights and Responsibilities Tour,"

Fixed. He is one sick individual.

I asked some months ago: have they announced that they won't accept any salary, speaking fees or other monetary gain from all the 'touring' and fundraising?

Beside the point, a seven day, seven state bus tour? And one of them is Alaska and another, Maine? That is one fast bus.

Would Gabby (Laura?) be allowed to possess a firearm under the standard she wishes to impose on everyone else? Probably doesn't matter, she is one of the priveleged for whom they always grease the skids.

I wonder how much Kelly has invested in the Clark County Shooting Complex?
