Reuters ^ | 1/3/13 | Dan Burns

Posted on 01/04/2013 2:34:11 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

Former US Representative Gabrielle Giffords will visit Newtown, Conn., the site of last month's deadly shooting in which 20 first graders were killed. Giffords survived a mass shooting in her home state of Arizona two years ago...

... Giffords plans to attend a private event at a local home on Friday, Steven Jensen, spokesman for Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman, said in an email. The event will have no media access and Giffords' plans are still developing and may change

The “journalist” I saw in Miami just said Giffords is a “gun control” spokesperson....

Really? Haven’t heard her speak too much.

All I see is a woman being exploited by the left.

You can count on the Dems to play the Victim card all during the Gun Control “Debate”. The Democrat Senators will call in parents/kids from Newtown,CT from the Shootings in Colorado...... NO Republican will have the WILL or HEART to oppose a bill when they are finished with the parade of sad stories. Boehner will Cave faster than ever and McConnell will be almost as bad.

I don’t care if she has security detail as long as SHE pays for it. She is no longer in the House and does not receive free security detail. Now if she decides to hire a detail I don’t care.

I don’t care if she has her own private security detail either, anymore than I care who owns guns in this country. But the media and the left have no problem publishing that information on private citizens who own guns in their own home. They not only demonize law abiding citizens, they put them at risk and operate by a double standard. That’s the point.

If the good folks of Newton have any pride and integrity they'll politely tell Gabby and all future dupes and exploiters like she and her handlers to stay the hell out of Dodge.

Wait and see, the dupes and exploiters who will soon be descending on the town like carpetbaggers will divide this town which is now united in grief.

The whole disgusting scenario will mirror how Obama, his ilk and his cult followers have divided the entire country. It'll mirror how skillfully Obama has just divided the House GOP and the GOP across the country, possibly beyond repair. Just like he divides us off from allies around the word.

Although he pretends to be the Great Emancipator, he's been the Great Pretender since he was first sworn in.

Now he's also the Great Divider.

Divide and conquer.....the evil one knows the drill.

giffords is yesterday’s news... leftists have already forgotten her. America only has a two week attention span. THIS is all about raising money and nothing else. I no longer have any sympathy for her. If she wants to be in the hot seat... let the woman feel the heat. Just because her eggs were scrambled by a crazy member of her ideology does not mean she gets to trash the Constitution. **** her.

Yes first it was the massive news media campaign (with the media's fake “fiscal cliff” bs) to get them to vote for a tax on the rich( which is marxism).

Now it will be a massive news media campaign to get them to vote for gun control, the media's stars :that school shooter, gabby giffords etc.

Just what the CHILDREN need to move past this tragedy: a pimp of the election industry refreshing the event for them. It is analagous to someone picking at a scar of a running sore, keep it fresh Gooby!

The exploitation of Gabby by the left is nauseating.

Trying to get rid of ownership of "assault" rifles by everyone by using someone shot with a handgun by a mental case.

Typical lefty logic.

So this is how Gabby Gifford’s is spending her golden retirement years. Yes she stayed in office while incapacitated in a hospital for a year so she could soak the system and collect retirement pay. I understand since she is a Democrat no one noticed. She could be going to Newtown to show her support for Eddie Eagle’s Gunsafe’s lifesaving message as she did in 2010 but somehow I doubt it.

Giffords lives in Arizona.

So who is paying for this “field trip”?

Follow the money.

Gabby Gifford is undoubtedly collecting big disability and retirement bucks from her shortened career as a Representative. Shortened because a fellow loony lib shot at her and the crowd she was with

This was lib on lib gun violence. Leave me out of it!!

Gabby was pro gun when she was running for office. Her husband is a low life opportunist.

But, but you just don’t understand! If all “clips” were limited to 10 rounds, the same the shooter would still have killed the same number and maybe wounded less as people were then moving targets and not standing looking around to see where the noise is coming from.

In the first three shots we had two wounded and one dead (Judge Roll).

If you don’t think they will go after less than 10 round magazines I have a bridge I would like to sell you.

It has always been about handguns. Assault rifles was just a decoy to try and get their anti-gun foot in the door.

Once they get a ban on AWs then they will use the same reasons to go after handguns.

John Kennedy killed with a 5 shot bolt action rifle.

Bobby Kennedy with a .22 Iver Johnson Cadet revolver.

George Wallace wounded with a 5 shot Charter Arms .38spl.

Gerald Ford attacked with a 7 shot 1911 semi auto.

Edmond OK post office with two National Guard 7 shot 1911 pistols.

Ronald Reagan and Jim Brady with an RG-14 .22 pistol.

What do they all have in common? NONE over 7 rounds, yet after each one came a cry of panic to ban them.

If you will remember, in California, after they passed their ban and registration scheme there was a 911 call to a home. The dispatcher saw that the HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET from where the 911 call came from had a registered “assault weapon”!

The cops then moved against THAT HOUSE FIRST, to secure it before they went to the residence where the 911 call came from.
