Skip to comments.WA:The only question that matters may not be asked in Olympia
Posted on 02/02/2014 5:33:10 PM PST by marktwain
When former Congresswoman Gabrielle Gabby Giffords appears today in Olympia to testify in favor of Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure being sold as a universal background check requirement, only one question should be respectfully asked: How would adoption of this measure have prevented the kind of thing that happened in Tucson in January 2011?
That's the incident in which Giffords was shot in the head by a gunman who killed six people and wounded 12 others, including the former congresswoman. She will be accompanied today by her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly.
The question is a fair one. There is no disrespect in it. If Ms. Giffords comes to Washington State to testify on behalf of a gun control proposal, because of her personal tragedy and triumph, she ought to explain how this measure would have prevented what happened.
According to the Associated Press and KTAR in Phoenix, Giffords will be featured in a new gun control advertisement to be aired before and after tonights State of the Union speech by President Barack Obama, shown here courtesy The Gun Wire. He is not expected to push any new gun control proposals, but thats what the commercials will do.
The report says Giffords will insist that Congress is afraid of the gun lobby. She will tell viewers to Tell Washington its too dangerous to wait.

The real question is:
“Why Did Denver Get Out of Bed Today?”
I’ll bite. I do not get the cultural reference.
Not to mention that little thing to them known as The Constitution
Here’s a hint:
Probably referring to their performance in the Super Bowl.
We have a weapon more powerful... than any in the whole arsenal of the British Empire! That weapon... is our refusal!
Time to ramp it up.
Prolly cuz you ain’t watching the game....
36 to sucking loudly....
Boo Yahhhh !!!!
Ultimately, that’s what it will take.
Telling them “No” in a manner that leaves no room for misinterpretation.
I am not looking forward to this.
It is just despicable the way Mark Kelly parades this now simple-minded woman around for his own political ambitions.
He learned from the “pro”...Mrs. James Baker.
Probably inspired by Sarah Brady.
Yes, it is pretty sickening. It says a lot about “progressives” that they not only put up with it, but cheer it on.
It’s disgusting really.
WTF is the point of his stunt? /s

He is bringing in millions. Money is a good motivator.
He is becoming a darling of the Left. Status is a good motivator.
I wonder how many young leftist women want to “comfort” him?
No one I know thinks he’s kewel dragging her around.
Kelly is a worthless piece of garbage.
No one I know thinks hes kewel dragging her around.
You are not a leftist, and you probably do not hang around leftists.
I hang around a lot of leftists and they think it’s gross or gauche
Nice to hear. Maybe there is hope.
No - no one wants what’s coming down the pike. It’s how we deal with it that matters. We all get to find out what we’re made of.
You had to sneak that in here, didn't you? The Broncos are probably asking themselves the same question. LOL for you.
Was a sleeper game.
I fell asleep with 9 minutes left.
WASHINGTON Former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ super PAC collected nearly $12.5 million last year to promote her gun-control agenda, new federal records show.
The more Giffords is paraded about, the more chances Mark has of moving that money out of the PAC.
