GABBY GIFFORDS: GUN CONTROL IS A WOMEN'S ISSUE
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 16 Jun 2014 | by AWR HAWKINS

Posted on 06/16/2014 9:33:16 PM PDT by kingattax

On June 16 gun control activist Gabrielle Giffords said gun control is a women's issue and one on which women should "lead the way."

Giffords was speaking to Hearst Corporation employees in Manhattan.

According to New York Daily News, Giffords spoke of how "dangerous people with guns are a threat to women." She said, "Criminals with guns, stalkers with guns, abusers with guns... make gun violence a women's issue."

Giffords stressed that women can lead the way "through common sense."

knee-jerk politics always leads to very bad legislation and policy. women are leading the way "through common sense" by arming themselves and getting trained to use their weapons in greater numbers than any other group in America today.

with the threat environment that exists, women are ignoring lefty stupidity and taking responsibility for their own safety.

by wanting to disarm them, what does that make you, gabby and what do real American women seem to know that you and idiots like you don't know ?

Is that why it was okay that a judge got killed when she was shot and he was ignored?

Yes it’s true! Gun control is a women’s issue, without proper control women will not be able to aim and fire accurately to defend themselves. Of course this is also true for men, once again proving that Giffords is sexist.

That is why women need to join the NRA and the GOA and get weapon training and carry guns.

abortion is also a ‘women’s issue’, even when you’re murdering little boys

Gabby Giffords has the mind of a child. I really HATE when Leftists use people to manipulate the masses.

I really wish she’d just shut up.

The women in my family turn purple with rage everytime she opens her mouth.

It ain’t pretty folks.

Is this why they’re sending women to the front lines?

BTW, why doesn’t giffords mention children and dogs?

According to her statement,it appears it’s okay to use a gun against a man. There’s no threat there.

Yes, in that something by Smith & Wesson or Springfield, or Kimber puts them on the same level as 3 6’ tall 200lb men.

It also puts me on the same level as 3 6’ tall 200lb men, because I’m short.

They thought about starting a group called Limp-Pecker Men for Gun Control, but it didn’t go over very well.

I know what you mean. Just today I was talking to the only liberal friend I have, and he told me he got angry with his wife because she wanted a crazy neighbor who has been violent to move and because she insisted on installing surveillance cameras.

I told him he was nuts. I mean, WTF? He is the only liberal with whom I can have heated arguments and still be friends. He is very good at what he does professionally, but to say he's dumb as a rock on stuff like this would be an insult to rocks.

Good job. Glad the 17 yr old was mature and trained by her dad.

Not all women are like Gabby take away guns. Better to have

protection, Gabby, than not.

Instead of violating everyone else’s Constitutional rights, maybe women and “Moms” should seriously campaign for better assistance concerning the mentally ill perpetrating the massacres.

A conservative federal judge was murdered at that event in Tucson. He should have been armed.

Even the March hare knew, “Say what you mean.”
“Gun control”= firearms confiscation.
We know you mean what you say, so say what you mean “Gabby.”
One thing leads to another.

About one half of the women who are murdered in the USA are murdered by Black males.

Non-Hispanic white males in the USA murder women at just a slightly higher rate than white males in Europe.

I see...

If those men didn’t have guns women would be able to defend themselves and the outcome would be different...

On some other planet...

If you want the outcome to be different, arm the women. That’s the only thing that changes the balance of power.

A women's issue? Sorry, here in Singapore gun control is a girls' issue: A competent 14-yr-old demonstrating the gun control that has just won her a bronze medal. They start out on air rifles and pistals, and graduate to the real thing at 18.

So, of course, do the boys. Incidentally, the Singapore Rifle Association, founded in 1862, is the oldest sporting club in the country. Its motto is "accuracy, discipline, marksmanship".

My question is how are all those gang bangers going to make any money if they can’t shoot their competitors who are forcing themselves into their market? How are those gang bangers going to line the pockets of those politicians if they can’t make some money?

They don’t call them gang bangers for nothing.

No.
It's a Constitution-hating-leftist's issue not limited at all by gender.

Why doesn’t Gabby-Gabby join the fight over these threats to women too?

About one half of the women who are murdered in the USA are murdered by Black males.

Democrats love the issue of gin control because they use it to mask the real issues: The violent black culture, fatherless children, the mentally ill who belong in institutions, gang violence, the decay of our Democrat controlled cities, violence in movies and electronic games, and so on...

Chicago has the toughest gun control laws in the nation, yet it is a war zone every night. Rural areas have high gun ownership and minimal gun related crime. But those are inconvenient facts that fly in the face of the liberal "narrative".

Beware of Gabby Gifford in the future, as she is the liberal’s platform ticket to gun control. Who knows what that bullet to the head did for her mind, and will they have her run for public office again....for a sympathy vote?

I just realized what this is about.

They're pushing for a federal "Drop A Dime" gun law, and Gabby the Rutabaga is just reading her script provided to her by the Drop-A-Dimers, which is about all she can do these days.

Shameful the way her husband is using her as a sock-puppet.
