Posted on 05/03/2014 7:10:26 AM PDT by rktman

As part of her continued push for gun control, Gabrielle Giffords told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that "women's lives are at stake" in the debate over guns.

Blabby needs to stay home and raise money for her and mr. potato head's anti-gun crusade. On the other hand, it is correct that as long as women can control their firearms, they'll be a lot safer. Just more of the republicrats war on women for not passing more laws to add to the 20k plus already on the books.

Did she really speak the words, or did her husband pull the puppet strings and ‘interpret’ for her? Was a ‘statement’ of hers (purportedly) read for her?

Frankly, unless she can stand up and speak the words and make sense without being helped or interpreted, it doesn’t mean anything to me.

I’m guessin’ that if no gun is involved, any ordinary old ass whoopin’ is just fine with her? Hammers, baseball bats, meat cleavers, golf clubs, etc are A-OK? What didiots.

Yes. Women’s lives are at stake if they’re not armed.

Giffords is right. Women need more gun control...that means using both hands, proper breathing, and squeeze the trigger.

Somebody picked the wrong girl.

This woman could become a real issue during the 2014 or 2016 election, she has a Democrat platform for sympathy, and Hillary or the Candidate may be asked to use it to their benefit. I find this a troubling situation, and WHY her husband is speaking at the NRA is beyond me?? Does anyone understand that?

Then she and her puppeteer should give up the arsenal they’ve compiled, including the straw purchase one the as#tronaut tried to make.

Maybe the husband should stop popping off rounds in his backyard while his Communist wife watches.

And yes, we’re all better off just murdering baby seals with our dogs (the POS puppeteer didn’t control his dog, and the dog killed a seal on an AZ beach).

Sat on a Grand Jury a few years ago, a sperm donor was high on Crack and took a baseball bat to the mother two young kids who were in the room.
Got an idea that more of this happens, physical and fatal abuse, not necessary Crack, than the Bang. Bang kind..

Since no gun was involved, I don’t know whey they even bothered to arrest the clown. Without a gun it apparently isn’t all that violent. I’m thinkin’ some of these didiots need to do a ride along to some of these stabbing/battering crimes and get up close to see some serious “wet work”.

More women will die if they lose the ability to protect themselves due to oppressive gun laws.

Women's lives absolutely are at stake! Who benefits the most from concealed carry? Women, because the average woman is not capable of defending herself from an (illegally) armed assailant in the same way that the average man is. For a woman to be able to defend herself, she needs the advantage of a (legally) concealed handgun. Hence, women are flocking to concealed carry classes in droves! My wife goes almost nowhere without her (legally-concealed) Sig.

I see a couple in the throat and the rest in center of mass. I believe this was taken after her attack if I remember correctly. Either way, she sure has a s**t eatin’ grin on her face. “Take that punk!” I notice the perps hat has Cal on it. Does she have something against people from Cali?

Things should be more like Vt. and Az. If you aren’t otherwise prohibited, no “permission” is needed to carry. Not sure how things are going in Vt. but ben and jerry are probably trying to get that “allowed carry” changed.

He is an astronaut. He must be a muslim pacifier.

One woman protecting herself with a gun can scare 1000 robber/rapist to protect hundreds of other women. The term for an unarmed woman is victim.

Gabrielle Giffords calls for women to be disarmed, then burned at the stake of crime.

I know... believe me.... *deep sigh*.... that’s why I’m still in the hotel room, posting on FR.... This is a forced appearance for a family event (later tonight).

It’s very sad to see what has happened to CA. And, coming in on the highways yesterday, lots of prison-style cameras and “papers, please”...

I’m jealous —’55 would have a very good year.

Ms Giffords:

I am sorry for the attack which you were the victim of.

However, since your Democrat party has done little to nothing to lock up the crazies in this country, my sympathy is tempered by such.

Therefore, here are some truths for you:

Many women in this country do NOT live in gated & guarded communities.

Many women in this country do NOT live with a man or even a roommate.

Many women in this country do NOT live in the city where ‘help’ can arrive in a matter of seconds.

Many women DO live in this country where the sheriff’s deputies can take as long as 40 minutes ++++++ to come to their assistance-—even assuming they can make a call for such assistance.

I personally have lived alone for over 51 years out of the last 56. I have always had a dog which can warn me of an intruder.

I am responsible for my own safety. In the time delay waiting for the deputy, I can be badly hurt or killed by an intruder.

Therefore, I will use whatever weapon I can muster to take care of myself.

When you take away my right to have a gun, you put me and millions of others into immediate danger. Any other kind of weapon requires close order contact. An intruder will have open season on all of us.

I am NOT willing to have YOU make such decisions for my safety.

Please try to enjoy what life you have left to you.

Please also let others like myself make such decisions as we need to to protect ourselves. I am not required to protect myself with a gun, but that should be MY choice.

DEFINATELY NOT YOURS!!!!!!
