I was a navy WIfe for 30 years, and never once did I see any indication of cowardice when it came to weapons of any kind. When one is the wife of a Tin Can Sailor, one learns to believe in three things: Guts, guns and God.

Shame on the navy.

She is not a national hero, she was a DemocRAT contortionist and might deserve
a plague in her state.

WTF does she have to do with the navy? This is just plain stupid and it's typical
that the RATS are always building monuments to themselves for worship. Disgusting.

Her husband is the only obvious connection. If she would have married a Marine, they would have named an MRAP after her.

I'm outraged -- outraged, I tell you! that they haven't yet named a ship for Fred Rogers or Michael Jackson. Where's the love?

Haven't you heard of the USS Neighborhood and the USS Billy jean?

Gifford's is a vile person. I have no sympathy or compassion for her whatsoever. She is using a tragic event to promote tyranny. She is part of those attacking our Bill of Rights, and that's just not acceptable. Many of us will not accept anymore infringement on our second amendment right, and will resist them tooth and nail. There will be innocent Americans murdered resisting this tyranny to some degree, and that blood is on the hands of those pushing this on peaceful patriots.

It's time for acts of civil disobedience in parts of the nation. Peaceful protest of heavily armed patriots, demonstrating open defiance of unconstitutional attempts aimed to disarm us. If we can't even take this risk, we aren't going be able to take the ultimate risk if it goes that far. We need to be proactive instead of just waiting around for them, and we still have plenty of peaceful options available to us. We have to put them in a situation to allow us our freedom, or attempt to violently force their tyranny upon us. Hopefully we can have a peaceful, and victorious outcome, but we have to be willing to take some risk. The stronger, and more united we are the better chance we have for those possibilities.

Just taking the lead from her puppet master.What was it that Axelrod said just after the 2008 election? something like "Osama Obama will never fail to take advantage of a crisis".

Rotten to the core. Utterly amoral. The lot of them.

Mabus said the notion occurred to him that this would be a “fitting tribute” not only to Giffords but to Navy families because she was a Navy spouse

And... they're actually expecting us to believe this BS.

FOX spent one half a sentence on the day Rolls was buried and went directly to Gabby’s condition. They spent some time on the little girl that was killed but it was Gabby gabby about all the time. Never heard Gabby thank his family or complement his bravery once. How brave is she-—she had no choice if she wanted to live.

What are they gonna do, shoot a big hole in the bridge, weld a plate over it, and call it functional? Hope they add part b to the hempel or jotun. This kind of decision making makes you question the whole operation.

“It’s very appropriate that LCS 10 be named for someone who has become synonymous with courage, who has inspired the nation with remarkable resiliency and showed the possibilities of the human spirit,” said Mabus.

Courage? Where does this a$$hole Maybus get the idea that being shot in the back of the head by suprise shows courage?

If the navy wants to reward courage, name the ship after the people that tackled the shooter.

Fire Maybus.

5 people were murdered when this representative was shot.

Sorry, but no person is worth more than another. Being a representative does not make a person more valuable than another.

There should be no ship named after her.

They are doing it because she has become an anti-gun fighter.
