    "A video of the massacre revealed that Judge Roll literally laid his life down to save another. The judge was shot in the back as he knocked down and then shielded congressional aide Ron Barber from more of the bullets fired by Loughner. According to a sheriff's department employee who viewed the video, Judge Roll placed himself over Barber while Loughner continued firing. . . . "We all wonder what we would do under such circumstances, but I am convinced that Judge Roll's Christian faith played a major roll in his actions on Jan. 8. I know this because Judge...

    Gun control proponent Gabby Giffords was in Nevada over the weekend campaigning for the same background check her attacker, Jared Loughner, passed to acquire his handgun. Loughner shot Gabby Giffords on January 8, 2011. According to Guns.com, Giffords’s stop was part of the gun control bus tour she and her husband, Mark Kelly, have been on for 14 weeks. She was in Nevada to push Question 1, which would expand background checks to more gun sales by requiring private sales and transfers to be checked just like retail sales.

    Gun Control has been a losing political issue on the national stage for as long as there have been guns and elections. Democrats however are stupid and think this year things are going to be different. The problem is “gun control” sounds so fascist and Americans are kind of attached to their rights so a liberal think tank led by Gabby Giffords’ anti-gun group has come up with ways that democrats like Hillary Clinton can bullshit voters into thinking their unconstitutional efforts are something other than what they are. Politico reports that Giffords’ Americans For Responsible Solutions along with other...
  • Gabby Giffords: Universal Background Checks Not Enough, Legalize Confiscation

    On May 9 — less than two years since universal background checks were hoisted onto the backs of law-abiding citizens in Washington state — Gabby Giffords was in the state campaigning for special protective orders that will allow firearm confiscation. The orders — “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” — would be similar to California’s Gun Violence Restraining Orders, inasmuch as they would allow “family or household members” to petition a judge to order the temporary confiscation of firearms from another family member or person living in the household.

    Former Arizona congresswoman and gun control advocate Gabby Giffords (D) will endorse Hillary Clinton for president this week, a spokeswoman confirmed to The Huffington Post. Giffords' husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, will also back Clinton. The endorsement is a personal one, however, separate from the couple's political action committee, Americans for Responsible Solutions, which is dedicated to curbing gun violence. The endorsement was first reported by CBS News. Friday marked five years since a gunman shot Giffords in the head and killed six others at a constituent meeting outside a supermarket in Tucson. After an impressive recovery, Giffords and her husband...

    As a gun owners, you absolutely MUST vote this November 4th 2105. If the State Senate, which is hanging by a thread, goes back into the control of the gun-hating Senate Democrat leadership, it is not going to be good for us. Anti-gun Gabby Giffords is about to spend $600,000 to turn the Virginia Senate over to the Democrats.

    On September 21 Americans for Responsible Solutions–the gun control group founded by Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly–tweeted numbers from the Center for American Progress Action Fund (CAP) claiming armed citizens in America have killed more people since 1989 than all wars since 1776 combined. The tweet contains a meme which says, “The number of deaths from gun violence just since Reagan’s presidency is higher than the number of soldiers killed in combat in all of U.S. history.”

    I haven’t had a relationship with Sarah since about the time of the shooting of Gabby Giffords. Nothing to do with that at all, but it was around that time that she withdrew from me and my team and it was because, as Todd told me on the phone, “we have been told who our real friends are.” I was stunned. I had backed her hard in every way I knew how. At that time I really believed in her and in fact I really believed she had the ability to change the world for the better. While I have...

    On August 20, the Essex News Daily ran a story in which Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords claimed they “actually do not support ‘gun control’ in the traditional sense of the phrase,” but “gun responsibility.” This comes after they have spent nearly three years supporting new gun trafficking laws, new laws on gun show sales, new laws on internet sales, limits on ammunition magazine capacity, expanded background checks, and gun control ubiquitously under the guise of domestic violence prevention. Yet they say they are not for gun control.

    Representative Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) (D-CA-5th Dist) won “Top Gun” at the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation annual shooting competition this past week then commented on his hopes for the passage of more gun control. Thompson stood with Gabby Giffords on March 4 and reintroduced Senator Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) failed expanded background check legislation. It has gone nowhere fast since that time.

    Gabby Giffords: Gun Control will curb terrorism. Which is why multiple planes were flown into the Twin Towers and Pentagon. The type of weapon terrorists use to achieve their goal is a moot point for they will always find a means to deliver their insatiable wrath. If it's not a gun, it's a plane. If it's not a plane, it's a pressure cooker bomb. If it's not a pressure cooker bomb, it's a virulent toxin. You can't defeat terrorism by focusing on the garnish simply because you desire Gun Control above all else and see an opportunity to hijack a...

    American Thinker ^ | 01/07/2015 | M. Joseph Sheppard
    The facts are simple and incontestable.  On January 8, 2011, deranged, obsessed druggie Jared Loughner opened fire at a political rally for Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, killing six, wounding 14, and nearly killing Giffords, who was the object of his obsession. Loughner stands in a long line of similarly deranged murderers and attempted murderers of politicians such as Hinckley, Bremner, Sirhan, and Oswald.  These men, as far as their mental capacity gave them a logical reason, were motivated by concepts that ranged from obsession with an actress to conspiracy theories to "prov[ing] my manhood" and other bizarre motivations.  In none of these cases...

    Crime: Talking about a war on cops motivated by race-baiting is mere "conjecture," according to the NAACP, which says that the assassination of two New York cops is an "example of the need for strict gun-control measures." After the tragic death of Eric Garner while resisting arrest, Mayor Bill de Blasio told New Yorkers how he had warned his biracial son to be wary of cops who, in any confrontation, might misinterpret his actions in a way they would not with a white suspect. Cops are the enemy, not the criminals they try to protect you from. Well, on Friday...

    Jazz already wrote the definitive take on the grisly execution-style shooting of two New York City police officers and the role that irresponsible commentary from elected leaders – particularly Mayor Bill de Blasio – might have played in that attack. Jazz is right to question the part that the mayor’s self-indulgent and unhelpful rhetoric might have played in this incident. Hours after a Staten Island grand jury’s decision to issue no-bill for the death of Eric Garner, de Blasio went on an ill-advised tear in which he impeached the NYPD based solely on his prejudices. “That should never have to...

    PHOENIX — The Pima County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday rejected a request from Democratic Rep. Ron Barber to delay certifying election results as he challenges the reasons ballots that could shrink Republican challenger Martha McSally’s slim vote lead weren’t counted. Kevin Hamilton, a lawyer representing Barber’s campaign, said in a letter to the board that there are more than 130 rejected ballots that should have been counted. Barber’s campaign has collected affidavits from voters who said they were qualified to cast a ballot but had their ballots rejected. “As a result, if the board certifies the canvass without correcting...

    Gabby Giffords, the former Democratic Congressman from Arizona who was shot in the head at a campaign rally in 2010, has come under fire recently for exploiting her horrific experience for political gain. Using her celebrity as a famous victim of gun violence, Giffords has created a Super PAC, Americans for Responsible Solutions, focused on gun control legislation.
