    Don't get me wrong, I firmly believe that it is a tragedy what happened to her but..After reading about her and her husbands campaign against law abiding gun owners I took her advice and sent a e-mail to Senator Grassley which reads:

    Message: Dear Senator Grassley,

    I am sending this E-mail urging you to keep our 2nd amendment rights intact. Please consider voting no on any gun control legislation that would inhibit our rights as gun owners not only in these present turbulent times but in the future times also.

    I firmly believe that stricter laws concerning gun-related crimes (mandatory sentencing for any crime involving a firearm) would be a better deterrent to gun related deaths than passing laws that only a law abiding citizen would obey to begin with.

    The only difference between the Gifford's and the Brady's is the role players are switched!!

    Its all about staying "noticed" and in the money for these clowns!!

    They are no different then a "Con artist"!!

    Why is it that most anti gunners are pro gay rights, favor murder by abortion, want to legalize mind altering drugs, won't consider Jessicas law with stricter penalties for child abuse and only consider themselves decent people? I think of them as mentally challenged liberals. ed nichols

    I'm sorry for what happened to her but she is complicit in what took place. She was a public figure speaking in an outdoor public gathering that was open to anyone who walked up, and she took ZERO steps to secure her personal security. Typical of the leftist that she is, having failed, she now assaults millions of people who had nothing to do with what happened to her while characterizing herself as both a victim and morally superior. She is a typical idiot leftist, and she reveals her utter lack of either personal responsibility or personal morality.

    wireguy, what do you do to insure the safety of your family while you are out in public?

    Or is it just your suggestion that her status as a public figure invites these kinds of things and that is an acceptable risk public officials knowingly accept?

    If it weren't for their "sidekicks" the Brady's and Gifford's would have stayed out of politics after terrible accidents!!

    BUT NO! lets milk this for all its worth!!

    I guess the US( NASA ) should have outlawed the space program and stopped paying her husband after the Challenger explosion?

    Gabby Gifford and her Husband Capt Kirk, have gotten more publicity of of one bullet than anyone could imagine ... She was no good before and she's no good now as a politician, except now her Old man is hanging around for the Money ... Tragic as it was she wouldn't of gotten this much press if they hit her where it could of done some damage let alone kill her ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    The idiots are out

    Mark Kelly is a war hero and astronaught and his wife Gabby was shot in the line of duty in public service

    Why dont each one of you post your war heroics and public service election and records? hmmm? She has the right and so does he to have their opinions

    WPT- hanging around for the money- are you insane?

    galmik- what does the challanger explosion have to do with anything? are you claiming he caused it? and he was a decorated pilot- what about you?

    Wireguy- what are you talking about? you want everyone in the USA to be like those in Russia? socialism and secret police everywhere

    Timberfallen- what the heck are you talking about

    You guys give fiream owners and shooters a bad name.

    The lady got shot in public service- shame on you

    Regards from Iowa

    Gene

    PS- by trying to shout her down you are recruiting more anti gunners who think you are insane bullies

    PS she is entitled to her position and that doesnt mean you should act like Bullies and call her names.

    She and her husband are entitled to there position. But they should keep it in arizona. They are lobbing here in colorado for gun control laws and they live in arizona. Leave us to make or not make our own laws.

    So chesty? If her and her husband are entitled to their opinion, why are the fellas who posted on this thread not entitled to theirs?

    Take your meds and gather your boyfriend 548 and move on.

    Well Gene If as the Giffords are claiming "guns kill people" so outlaw them, then in theory The Challenger explosion killed people so should we have outlawed the space program because of it. And where did you interpret that statement meant Gifford caused it. You read way too much into a statement.

    The fact that he was a decorated pilot, what bearing does that have on anything..... Does that give his opinion more weight than others? It may with you but certainly not with me. My background sir is none of your business. Furthermore, If he was decorated it was during time of war, where he was serving this country in the course of helping another country establish personal freedoms for its population. Why fight for the freedoms of other countries citizens and then attempt to take the freedoms away from your own countries citizens. Is it just me or is that a bit hypocritical.

    Let me tell you IMO,... its people like you who give firearms owners a bad name, Seems to me it is just about time for your a$$ to fall to one side of the fence or the other. There may be some extreme right wing thinking and opinions on this site but unfortunately for you, people have a right to their opinions, even you. That also is a right granted under the US constitution. As an attorney you should be fighting for the rights of US citizens not trying to or supporting those that are attempting to infringe on those. Seems to me that also is a bit hypocritical!

    She was pro-gun, a shooter took away her career and changed her life.

    This is the only cards they have left to play, and play they are.

His statement here was i support the 2nd ammedment but i don't think gun rights should be extented to criminals???? Last i checked they didn't.
