    Honestly,,,

    I'm sure you all know I feel so badly for Mrs. Giffords having to go through what she has to,as I'm sure 99% of us do. And I would not wish this on my worst enemy. Ever!

    Though I can't say I'd ever agree with her political views on many points before or after this happened,, I don't feel that things like this should happen to anyone, despite there views,this is very sad indeed, and my prayers go out to her and her family. And to so many others that were effected by the tragedy that took place at the hands of a mad man that day. Yes,, it is unconscionable and my prayers go out to them all.

    But remember ,,, it was the mad man with the gun,,, not the gun that did this, it could have just as well happen with a 2x4, a pipe, a baseball bat,,,or anything. A mad man/nut job,,,, is just that, it has nothing to do with guns except in a twisted mind!

    I feel even worse for her now,, knowing that now the liberals are taking advantage of this poor woman's circumstances and obvious disability's by trying to advance there own agendas through her challenges. This is just so wrong on so many levels.

    Hasn't this poor woman had to go through enough without having to be part of a "dog and pony show"!!! Don't these people that are using her as a poster child for gun control,,,have any sense of decency at all,,, ???????

    Never mind,,,, Sadly,,,I know the answer to that one !!!! They should be very proud of them selves !!! IMO

    Nope that's what I get from it. He went in and did it the right way, like every one of us have to.
    And I bet someone is going to (or was planning to) make it seem like he just went and got it "so easily that anyone can do it" type things.

    being a astronut, retired navy captain , and in like flynn with the socialist , got pals in the FBI and NSA --he would be an automatic background check pass--


    what would be funny is if they ran Obamma through the background check!


    if it was working like it should it would come back "DENIED ILLEGAL ALIEN ATTEMPTING TO BUY A FIREARM! RED ALERT!" when they ran Obamma through he system--

    I saw him interviewed on CNN yesterday. Made me want to puke. "Yes i bought this AR, and i absolutely intend to turn it in to the local police department here in Arizona. But as a firm supporter of the 2nd amendmant and my belief in owning firearms for self defense, im keeping the 1911. I just dont think assault rifles like the AR15 belong in the hands of non-military people"

    or something right along those lines. Like he bought it legally i am assuming...just to do what? Make a point that turning in firearms to the police is the right thing do? unless its a handgun? wtf?

    ETA: Found some of the dialogue: saying he did it only to find out how easy it was, but totally planned to turn it in...yea right, only after everyone found out and called him on it.

    "I just had a background check a few days ago when I went to my local gun store to buy a 45. As I was leaving, I noticed a used AR-15. Bought that too. Even to buy an assault weapon, the background check only takes a matter of minutes," he continued.

    Later, on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," Kelly said it was "important for me to have firsthand knowledge about how easy it is or difficult it is to buy a weapon like that."

    If he really wantd to know how hard it was to buy an AR-15 with a background check, he should have asked me to buy it. It takes hours for me to get an approval.

    Heck, it has taken me as long as ONE YEAR to get an approval to buy a bolt action WWII rifle. Even then that was a NO GO, as it has to be approved in 30 days.

    Background checks should be outlawed.

    yep he was just featured on Megyn kellys program

    funny thing is the weapon if turned in will be considered a Police dept excesses property and will be sold off to the general public

    my take is he tried to buy a assualt rifle before he tries to get them outlawed, because he only came forward after he found out brietbart was going to out him on this, then he ran to CNN ( communist news network ) to explain himself, Mr. 2A needed to know how the background process worked WTF kind of bullshit answer is that

    He's already a gun owner. He knew exactly what this would entail. There was nothing new he could have learned from the experience.
