    Default Gabrielle Giffords Calls For Patience On Third Anniversary Of Shooting

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_4558711.html





    Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), a gunshot survivor and gun control advocate, called for patience on gun reform in a column published in The New York Times on Wednesday.

    In the op-ed, printed on the third anniversary of the assault that left six of her constituents dead and Giffords in critical condition, the former representative wrote of her "endlessly repetitive" and "painful" rehabilitation.

    She admitted congressional inaction on gun control has left her "disappointed," but expressed optimism in an important election year:

    We池e not daunted. We know that the gun lobby, which makes money by preventing sensible change, relies on dramatic disappointments to wound us, reduce our power, push us back on our heels. Our fight is a lot more like my rehab. Every day, we must wake up resolved and determined. We値l pay attention to the details; look for opportunities for progress, even when the pace is slow. Some progress may seem small, and we might wonder if the impact is enough, when the need is so urgent.

    But every day we will recruit a few more allies, talk to a few more elected officials, convince a few more voters. Some days the steps will come easily; we値l feel the wind at our backs. Other times our knees will buckle. We値l tire of the burden. I know this feeling. But we値l persist.

    We can get tough and win elections. We値l support our allies. And those who stood in the way will face a powerful advocacy community standing between them and re-election.

    She and her hubby are brain-dead trash.
    Who wrote her letter for her? They're parading her around like a dog-and-pony show. What that POS husband is allowing to happen to his wife is as bad as Sarah Brady and her husband.

    Hunter I don't disagree with you. Just saying it seems they're playing both sides of the fence. Or just playing us for their own agenda.

    Bingo,,, hunter-02,, I think ya hit the nail on the head.

    I've said sense the beginning, and after she was wounded,, that she was just being used and I'm sticking to that still.

    Sad isn't it,,just how low the Dem party will stoop to force an agenda!! They wouldn't give two shit otherwise, they just want another poster child to advance there fucked up socialist agenda,, nothing more.

    At least she has an excuse.
    Unless there's a video of her giving the statement, I'll believe it's all stage managed.

    Personally, Mr. Eugene, I don't give a rats about her personal problems. I'm sorry she got shot and I'm double sorry she's getting played.
    As a civilian, I've been shot at, stabbed, run down TWICE by a drunk driver(I'll stop here before it starts to sound like a soap opera) and I don't wan't or need any more gun laws, knife laws or more UNconstutional drunkdriver checkpoints. Both the idiots that ran me down(both from the back, once on a M/C) were lifelong felons with more than 18 DWIs/DUIs between them. Neither had ever served over 9 months.
    One of the feral bantus that stabbed me was fresh out of prison on a manslaughter charge. He did 30 months on an 8-15.
    One of the idiots that shot at me was a drunk state trooper that got nolle prossed by the ASA. He had personal problems/divorce.
    All that has to be done is DO SOMETHING WITH THE TRASH WHEN YOU CATCH THEM.

    theres nothing wrong w/ at in the books now ( well some of it is nonsense, but who am i to judge )

    but there but the problem here, is enforcing whats there and not giving a good behavior a reason to get out early

    just my opinion

    i been saying all along --WHY don't they look at the MEDICATIONS the shooters were on at the time?

    i bet giffords shooter was on the same high powered anti-depressant , that same one that drives mental cases into a suicidal rage event.

    but all the attention is on the firearm-- how fricking stupid is that???
