    Recalled CO Sen. Giron (on Navy yard shooting) proves her detractors right

    Stunning ignorance on display. Article with two videos of Giron talking when she clearly needed to shut up.

    Claims a background check would have stopped Alexis.

    Claims the Navy Yard was filled with armed military.

    Claims the NRA Board is "ALL gun manufacturers." Hmmm... Tom Selleck, Ted Nugent.... NOT!

    Because the two (that we know about) previous ones weren't enough, apparently.

    She was recalled and yet her gums keep flapping for some unfathomable reason.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Further proof, one does not have to be intelligent or knowledgeable to be interviewed by CNN.

    I can't open the video at work, so forgive my ignorance. Did any of the press or people taking the video remind her that he did go through a background check?
    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    At least on CNN her silliness was challenged. MSNBC it looked like he just nodded agreement. Apparently sounded good to him.

    The reason is clear, unfathomable ignorance.

    Or for CNN to present the interview as the authoritative word on the subject.

    Without being shown in its entirety, the video clips are pretty much only of her not being able to shut up.

    I have seen several interviews she has given, and coherence has yet to show itself as one of her attributes.

    Guessing she has never been on a military base. I am going to guess there are much less carried or readily available firearms on any base than in the typical city in the US.

    Shouldn't someone have explained to her that he did pass a background check to get his shotgun? Also what does a 100 round mags have to do with this shooting? Also she seemed to admit that allowing 100 round drums is good because they are unreliable and jam.
