Skip to comments.Gabby Giffords falsely implies that her shooter evaded a background check

Former congresswoman Gabby Giffords op-ed piece is getting a lot of praise on Twitter. This is the part of the piece that caught our attention: What they will do is create one fair system for all gun buyers, instead of the giant loophole we have now. Right now, we have one system where responsible gun owners take a background check And then we have a second system for those who dont want to take a background check. Those people criminals, or people suffering from mental illness, like the young man who shot me can buy as many guns as they want on the Internet or at a gun show, no questions asked. Giffords seems to be implying that her shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, didnt undergo a background check. This is not true. Loughner obtained the gun legally, and he passed a background check.

Buy a gun thru the Internet, and it goes to a licensed dealer who will do the paperwork & background check on you...
“Those people criminals, or people suffering from mental illness,”
Was she talking about herself?
Grabby didn’t write that! Somebody else wrote that!
“Those people criminals, or people suffering from mental illness, like the young man who shot me can buy as many guns as they want on the Internet or at a gun show, no questions asked”
Ms. Giffords you are a bald-faced liar just like your husband.
She is practically a vegetable anyway. I wonder if her husband put her up to that op ed piece?
Well, actually, all of the evidence suggests that the Democrat Sheriff passed Jared Lochner, even though he was known to be crazy and had committed an earlier offense that was shrugged off by the local park rangers, because his mother was a powerful Democrat political operative.
The system would have worked if it had not been for the corruption of a bunch of crony Democrats scratching each others’ backs.
He passed the background check because the local Sheriff, a liberal Dem, sh*tcanned the report from the community college declaring Loughner a threat. NICS never got the red flag that would have stopped the loony. He did this because Loughner’s mom was a pal of his, a Corruptocrat just like him who worked for the County.
And then Sheriff Dupnik blamed Sarah Palin for the shooting.
Duh. She’s just a sock-puppet now. It’s sad because she used to have a mind of her own.
Note to wife and family: If I am ever shot in the head, do not parade me around in front of cameras putting stupid and untrue words in my mouth! I’d rather die than live as a professional victim like Brady and Giffords.
And by design, any criticism of MS. Giffords will be made to appear mean-spirited and hateful. How dare you question this plucky woman who was so gravely wounded by an evil unregulated gun!
The title obviously meant that mark kelley-giffords told gabby to say that. Sadly, I’m not sure she could put that together without the puppet master feeding it to her. And simply, again, they said the perp was mental. The gun wasn’t mental or deranged. It only did what the perp directed it to do. Geez these people are clueless. Or not. Law abiding victims everywhere are getting PO’d.
When liberals talk about background checks, they are not referring to the current instant background checks that people go through now. They want something a lot more invasive and time-consuming. Basically, they want a very long waiting period and a “may issue” LEO driven process. They want to institute background checks similar to how Massachusetts does a CCW request, not just for ccw, but for all gun purchases.
Its not Giffords writing this, its her lunatic husband who refuses to give up his 15 minutes of fame. Gifford’s brain, or whats left of it, is swiss cheese..its her husband calling all the shots now..he runs the show..I always knew he was a schmuck, from the moment I saw him I knew he was a piece of crap
Shut up, Gabby.
That abusive, dishonest POS probably wrote it and signed her name ... Doubt she even knows about it.
Id be more upset at who orchestrated any statement by Giffords. Good grief, the woman suffered a massive trauma to the brain. Can’t they just let her enjoy life rather than trotting her out as a propaganda piece?!? The inhumanity of the left knows no boundaries.
Both of them are lower than whale poop at the bottom of the ocean.
I have to admit this gives me pause.
If a community college can issue a report that someone is a threat, then that person should lose a God given right because someone says he's crazy?
My gut tells me that this "mental health" issue is really what the dems are after and this will end up being the compromise...and we're falling into the trap.
Consider this, in the late sixties it was promoted and excepted by many that felons should not be able to by a gun, I mean after all that sounds so reasonable , right?
The fact of the matter is you are stripping the right away from a class of person simply because it is societally acceptable, Constitution be damned....with the support of many here.
Now it has progressed to persons under restraining orders, Misdemeanor "domestic violence" (yell at your spouse in some states and it's considered domestic violence) and on and on.....
Now, with Obama care being instituted, digital medical records, massive data storage facilities being built, technology that allows the government to accumulate data on your every web post and activity couple with every word you uttered to your doctor, well you get my point.
When we get to the point of "someone" deciding who is mentally "fit" to own a firearm, well I think that is a very dangerous road to go down....an I think it is a trap just like the argument in the 60's..."who could support a felon buying a firearm"?
