    Gabby Giffords with AR-15 - Image Leak

    Anything to get elected.

    "Leaked yesterday by Arizona radio host James T. Harris via an anonymous source, the above photo is of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords holding an AR-15 back in October 2010. The photo was taken during campaign season by an anonymous source who is of law enforcement — the purpose of the photo was to ‘toughen up’ Giffords’ image. The photo was well known in the Arizona law enforcement community but had remained publicly concealed until yesterday."

    It's only wrong if you have an AR-15.

    Not to sound like some sort of anti here but the Giffords have been relatively open with there change of stance post Gabby/Tucson shooting. Prior to her being shot they were pretty pro-gun, and opposed the Washington D.C. handgun prohibition situation. That at least that's my understanding from the interviews I have seen of them and other from a few other sources.

    So while I don't agree with her current gun stance I am not sure I would begin criticizing her and her husband based off an old photo of her with an AR. Until I have been shot in the head and then made an amazing recovery I will reserve judgement on how someone and their husband should feel after that sort of event.

    Ya know, my neighbor killed his wife years ago with a hammer.....no one banned hammers in my town. Why is it Regan who was shot didn't call for a ban on guns or after the Kennedy assassination there wan't a ban on guns.....your dealing with irrational people who are in it for the politics and money.....IMO.

    I will give them the right to change their minds, especially since part of hers got shot away.

    The 1968 Gun Control Act was a result of JFK, MLK and RFK being assassinated.

    I disagree with them but I am not going to criticize them for changing their minds
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    I certainly can understand their personal feeling about the subject and would feel terrible if it happened to my loved one. But using her tragedy to promote himself into office is another thing. We all have heard the saying about not letting a tragedy go to waste.

    There's a large difference in them changing their minds and them forcing their views upon me.

    They, and anyone else, can be as anti-gun as they want to be and I'll support their right to be that way but when they start trying to make me conform to their views then I have a big issue with it.

    Your rights end where my nose begins.

    Concealed means hidden from ordinary observation so as to prevent disclosure or recognition. A deadly weapon is concealed when it is carried on or about the person in such a manner that another person in the ordinary course of events would not be placed on notice that the weapon was being carried.
