Gabby Giffords in new anti-gun commercial....
Wonder how long it took them to train her to parrot the words.... Roll Eyes

http://news.yahoo.com/giffords...49838--politics.html

On the eve of President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords is challenging Washington leaders not to ignore gun violence.

The former Democratic congresswoman is featured in a new television ad set to air immediately before and after the president's speech. In the ad, Giffords faces the camera and says, "Congress is afraid of the gun lobby."

"Tell Washington it's too dangerous to wait," she says in a slightly slurred voice.

Her commercial is probably part of a new plan to get talk of gun control going again. Betcha El Douche proposes some sort of gun control.

Nah. He won't "propose" anything. He'll just issue an edict from the throne. "So let it be written, so let it be done."

Her husband is the one that is parading her around. Just as bad as Sarah Brady did with her vegetative husband. He needs to be given a long vacation in a PMITA prison.

I understand that she likely was carrying a gun in her purse that day. link at usacarry.com

Of course when ambushed that way, no time to draw and defeat the attacker.

She has changed her tune since 2011.

Don't know what the following from " On The Issues" means by "signed"
quote:

National cross-state standard for concealed carry.
Giffords signed H.R.197&S.845

Establishes a national standard for the carrying of concealed firearms (other than a machinegun or destructive device) by non-residents. Authorizes a person who has a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm in one state and who is not prohibited from carrying a firearm under federal law to carry a concealed firearm in another state:
• Notwithstanding any law of any State, a person who is not prohibited by Federal law from possessing a firearm and is carrying a valid license to carry a concealed firearm may carry in another State a concealed firearm.
•If such other State issues licenses to carry concealed firearms, the person may carry a concealed firearm in the State under the same restrictions which apply in that State.
•If such other State does not issue licenses to carry concealed firearms, the person may not carry a concealed firearm in a police station, in a courthouse, at a meeting of a governing body, in a school, at an athletic event, in an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages, or inside an airport, except to the extent expressly permitted by State law.

Just throw her a cookie and a couple shiny things to play with and she should be good for a few hours.

I used to have a measure of compassion for this woman, but no more. She's a mindless moron being paraded around by a man (Kelly) who is totally devoid of any conscience or character whatsoever, and who has decided to drag his mentally defective wife around to try and bolster his 15 minutes of fame. Personally, I wish someone would beat him within an inch of his worthless life....

Well, she's easily swayed these days... what with the cognitive abilities of a three-year-old and all...

She's (ack) the first person I'd look to for advice on this matter...

No offense intended, but Gabby needs to shut up.

I understand and agree with the gripe with him, but jeez louise, the lady got shot in the damn face. She knows not what she does, at this point. Hard to harbor ill will toward someone so broken.

Exactly.

She knows not what she does.

Why parade her around as some sort of spokesperson against gun ownership?

Sure, I feel bad for her being shot, but using her as a poster child for gun control is senseless.

Please don't misunderstand my comments. I harbor no ill will toward Ms. Giffords, I simply am totally tired of having her shoved in my face and paraded around as some sort of hero. She got shot, and as a result has the mental capacity of a baked potato. She does not need to be on a national stage anywhere attempting to talk about anything, yet that attention whore, POS, world's worst excuse for a husband won't give it a break.

From what I understand, she is not responsible for her actions. Of course, the libtards will parade her around for 'her' stance on gun control. Never mind that she's a puppet.

I pity her and don't wish her any ill will; my contempt is held for her dirt-bag husband and those who use her for their own political purposes.

When her husband is done with the anti gun circuit he's going to team her up with Jeff Dunham.

This is just so very sad.

Does anybody parade their brain-damaged spouse around the landscape after he or she became the victim of an illegal driver, asking for automobiles to be banned?



Thought not.

Is it consensual when he has sex with her?

Sort of sometimes. A couple years back we had some commercials advising folks that texting and driving was a bad idea. In them they had different people who were affected by distracted drivers, one was someone who lost her sister when the sister ran off a road while texting and another was a mother with her son who was now next to brain dead. I don't remember them lasting very long, or really having much effect. Those of us who know better already don't text and drive, and those who think they know better keep doing it because bad shit only happens to other people.

As for Giffords, she's a potato now, she doesn't quite know what's going on, other than the bald man with with mustache keeps feeding her things to say to cameras. You can see in her eyes there's something important missing and it's sad. Here was an intelligent person who had that stolen from her by some lunatic, and now her pimp of a husband is carting her around, trying to make a big name for himself, just being a jackass in general. I can't feel anger at Gabby Giffords any more than I could feel anger at a child, but that asshole husband of her's, fuck that guy until the Sun burns out and then fuck him for five minutes more.
