abcnews.go.com ^ | 2/11/2014 | HILLEL ITALIE

Posted on 02/11/2014 10:27:56 AM PST by rktman

Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is working on a book about gun control.

Kelly said in a statement issued Tuesday by the book's publisher, Scribner. "As Second Amendment supporters and gun owners ourselves, we hope our book rouses the long-overdue conversation our country needs to make responsible changes to our gun laws so that no more precious lives are lost."

TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; Politics/Elections; US: Arizona
KEYWORDS: 2a; banglist; giffords; guncontrol
Well, well, well. Since Ms. Giffords has a mental disability and after viewing her at the range post injury in a video, she is certainly NOT one to be using firearms.

“...needs to make responsible changes to our gun laws so that no more precious lives are lost.”

“However, lives that are not precious are entirely expendable, be it via industrial genocide, or just dehumanization by government to the point of extinction.”

Somebody should write a book on curtailing Gabby’s right to write a book.

Gabby is correct. We do need gun control.

Be sure to keep guns away from mentally deranged leftist losers like Jared Lee Loughner and things will be fine.

Having had a relative (who survived) who was shot by a felon only a short time out of prison, I’m more than well aware that passing additional laws would not have changed one thing except make it more difficult for the relative to defend themselves.

Silliness. Regardless of what "conversations" we have as a country, precious lives are going to be lost. Man is Man.

Exactamente correcto. I don’t blame Gabby Giffords. She has suffered severe brain damaged. Her husband is an absolute piece of puke, just like Jim Brady’s wife.

No. We don’t need to make changes to “our” gun laws.
We need to repeal them.

what part of our Constitution (or history) can’t these folks understand?

Yeah, right. We need more laws. Outlaws don’t obeys the laws we have, what makes these idiots think they’ll obey any new ones?

The only thing outlaws respect is force. A law abiding citizen should be allowed to meet force with force.

The “wild west” was much more civilized than most cities today. With most everyone armed, outlaws thought twice before trying anything. An armed society is a polite society.

Pull the string on the Lil’ Gabby doll:

“As Second Amendment supporters and gun owners ourselves, it’s okay to ban everything except single shot .22’s!”

“As Second Amendment supporters and gun owners ourselves, turn in your parents for hiding illegal guns!”

“As Second Amendment supporters and gun owners ourselves, your hand is cold!”

“As Second Amendment supporters and gun owners ourselves, I like toast!”

Actually, he’s a disgrace not only to the astronaut corps, he’s a disgrace to his naval uniform as well. But he is a “gun safety advocate”.

Her brain was/remains severely damaged. If she can write a book, my dog can jump over the moon. Her husband is a loser freak who milks her situation for $$$$$$. What a putrid excuse for a human.

My former representative was a POS lying hypocritical liberal scumbag BEFORE she was shot by a lunatic anti-religion conspiracy-freak liberal. I guess I shouldn’t expect her to change...

Exactamente correcto. I don’t blame Gabby Giffords. She has suffered severe brain damaged.

No, she experienced a miracle - a 9mm bullet passed through her brain without a shockwave.

And not only that - it also apparently it passed through her brain without even a bullet.

Johnny: There’s been a miracle.
Rose: A miracle. Well, that’s news.
Johnny: My mother’s recovered.
Rose: You’re kidding.
Johnny: Oh, no. The breath had almost totally left her body. She was as white as snow. And then, she completely pulled back from death. And stood up. And put on her clothes. And began to cook for everyone in the house—the mourners, and me, and herself—she ate a meal that could choke a pig.
Rose: That’s incredible.
