Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords, expressed his condolences Monday for the victims of the mass shooting in the Washington Navy Yard, saying Gabby and I have been there.
Gabby and I are holding the victims of todays massacre at the Washington Navy Yard in our thoughts and prayers, Kelly, who is a retired Navy pilot and NASA space shuttle commander, said in the statement from the PAC he and his wife co-founded Americans for Responsible Solutions. [W]e know that nothing will bring solace to the families who lost loved ones. As the hours and days pass, Americans should match their anger and sadness with gratitude for the sailors, Marines, civilians and first responders who are acting with courage today and support for the injured who have such a long road ahead. Gabby and I have been there. In times like this, its the ultimate affirmation to have a nation behind you.(continued)

Scratch an astronaut, find a pathological narcissist.
Yes, and the shooter was a tea party activist. A Palin disciple, from what I hear.
If he abhorred the AR-15 so much then:
WHY DID HE TRY TO BUY ONE...?
I don’t believe his wife was shot. Kabuki theater. Is it obvious how she “recovered” from her hollywood makeup?
“If he abhorred the AR-15 so much then:
WHY DID HE TRY TO BUY ONE...?”
Cuz the shooter used an AR-15 shotgun (per CNN).
He only purchased an AR-15 assault rifle.
Of course he’s gonna milk this tragedy.
They only part that actually saddens them is that it doesn’t have more political angles for them to play on.
What is their big plan now? Disarm security guards on military bases?
We can always count on the same old attention whores to flock to the microphones and cameras.
Is this guy going to kill a dog or whatever again?
Yes, PLEASE convince some more politicians to take advantage of our collective sorrow, overreach, and touch the third rail of politics!
Gabby Giffords likes the AR-15 and the AK-74 !
God, I’m sick of these leftist attention whores.
Mark Kelly is still in space....SHEESH!
Are you being sarcastic, or are you just clinically insane?
Mr. Kelly: QUIT blaming gun owners! If you want to make a difference, concentrate on the help for the mentally ill. Spend the money you spend for gun control on them. This nation can’t see the trees for the forest. The 1970’s peaceniks shut down most of our mental facilities because they were “inhumane” and these poor souls ended up on the streets. All but one of these facilities was closed in Minnesota back then.
Yes, Gabby has been there... shot by a crazed Democrat voter. Look up Jared Loughner’s affiliation, if you don’t remember.
So, where have you been, Mark Kelly?
Why, only with this new tragedy on Monday, 09162013, have you come out from under your rock, to evoke your supposed compassion, with the political crocodile tears?
Where have you been hiding all this time? What have you been doing?
You have an important niche in history, being part of the historic, and now gone, NASA. Why have you said naught about beating the drum to bring that organization back, to regain its gone glory?
But, no, once again you drag out Gabby, put her on the stool, stand close to her to hide your hand working her controls, as that entertainer does with that mannequin named “The Dead Jihadist”.
Your act is old, your words are dead, partner.
I think it is insane to believe the government story. Does she look like someone who got shot in the head?
The Media, the government and Hollywood are in cahoots with each other.
Is this news to you?
“I think it is insane to believe the government story.”
What the hell does that even mean, the “government story”? Any story you conspiracy guys disagree with is a “government story”. It must be nice to be able to dismiss any fact or event you don’t find convenient like that.
“Does she look like someone who got shot in the head?”
What is someone who got shot in the head supposed to look like, in your opinion? Do they all have to be stumbling around drooling for the rest of their lives, or you get to call them fakers?
I don’t personally know too many people who have been shot in the head, so I don’t have any expert opinion on the matter. However, I’m sure there are plenty of vets or first responders around the forum who might be able to chime in and school us both on how easy it is to judge whether someone has suffered such a wound by watching a video of them a few years later.
“The Media, the government and Hollywood are in cahoots with each other.
Is this news to you?”
Yeah, they’re in cahoots to make you look like a lunatic, is what it looks like to me.
Listen- it is hard for thinking people, who have logical and rational brains to keep swallowing this stuff.
If you watch this video and still believe that this woman was shot in the head- then you are an emotional thinker.
That is all.
Have you ever been around anyone with a TMI? If you had, then you wouldn’t have to ask. It is quite obvious that she is faking.
If I told you A Muslim would be in the White House, who would use his position to destroy America- you would cry out that I was a Kook.
Truth is that the truth is hard to take. Simple and emotional thinkers are easily swayed. That is the reason we are in the mess we are in right now.
Not enough logic. Not enough critical thinking skills, not enough experience with the subject matter and people who have been socially engineered into emotional zombies- who worship what they see on TV.
“If you watch this video and still believe that this woman was shot in the head- then you are an emotional thinker.”
If you think you can make pronouncement like that about someone from watching a video, especially if you are not a doctor, then you are much worse than an emotional thinker.
“Have you ever been around anyone with a TMI? If you had, then you wouldnt have to ask. It is quite obvious that she is faking.”
So you think everyone with a brain injury has to act the same, and act like the people you know, or they are faking. That says a lot about you and how much of a “thinking person” you really are, so I’ll just let that speak for itself to the readers out there.
“If I told you A Muslim would be in the White House, who would use his position to destroy America- you would cry out that I was a Kook.”
Except you’re not making that prediction, or any prediction that we can go back to later and see whether your version of reality is accurate or not. If you think you really know what’s going on though, please make such a prediction. I’ll be glad to come back and review it in a few years and see how it shakes out for you.
I am sorry it is emotionally upsetting to you that I don’t believe the government background of this woman’s act.
But I don’t. It just looks like bad acting to me
It’s not emotionally upsetting to me. I just think you’re nuts.
It was a seal.
An endangered one.
He sik’ed his dog on the seal.
It was a baby seal.
The feeling is mutual. :) Have a good day, anyway.
They should drag these two to Chicago and Detroit or wherever somebody breaks the law and shoots a person so they can stand there and say, “so sad, more laws please.”
