    No I don't. I'm sorry about what happened to her just as much as anyone else. These are the times we are living in and gun control is not the answer. In fact I would guarantee with the gun control that the government and media is pushing, if it goes through, we will be facing "more" deaths from guns than we will if they were to leave them alone or even do away with gun free zones and loosen up gun restrictive laws.

    I don't support her efforts in the least bit. You didn't hear a peep out of her until recently. She is being paraded around because she was the unfortunate victim of a crazy person with a gun. No one would know who she is if that didn't happen and I would venture a guess that she wouldn't be advocating gun control if she hand't been shot.

    Nope, she is protected by those with guns.

    Just another "Brady" anti gun propaganda machine.
    Maybe we need to post ads for all the men and women that have been Raped/Robbed/Killed in cities that deny them the right to carry for Self Defense

    She was rather strong 2A, until she got shot. However, it appears they forgot a key part... having people with guns there for protection & / or carrying, work to also protect you from BG's. Rule # 1 isn't any good if you don't utilize it.

    She is the 21st. Century Jim Brady.

    Why did she not take the course that Dr. Suzanna Gratia (Hupp) took.

    Gratia-Hupp 1992

    Giffords in now showing her true colors.
    She would gain more respect from the country if she stood up FOR the Second Amendment and the rights of the people to keep and bear arms.

    She and her husband are just being used by the progressive left. The left will dump them as soon as they have served their purpose.

    On the NBC Nightly News last night, the story said they were both gun owners. I didn't hear them supporting gun bans, but maybe I missed that.

    They never said a word about bans, you're right. They are probably on the side to get something like mental health into the NCIS checks and making it harder to F2F transfer etc.

    Honestly I think it's a stunt to keep relevant in the media. Likely some higher ups wanted her to appear to be on their side to get "reasonable" restrictions put in place in exchange for some cash or influence.
