You’ve disappointed me, and there will be consequences.
Various ^ | 04/17/2013 | Gabby Giffords

Posted on 04/18/2013 8:06:33 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd

I am asking every reasonable American to help me tell the truth about the cowardice these senators demonstrated. I am asking for mothers to stop these lawmakers at the grocery store and tell them: You’ve lost my vote. I am asking activists to unsubscribe from these senators’ e-mail lists and to stop giving them money. I’m asking citizens to go to their offices and say: You’ve disappointed me, and there will be consequences.

I’ve pointed out to friends...isn’t this what people want. The four states these Democrats represent are strong for the 2nd amendment. These Senators actually voted representing their constituents...not just toting the party line.

Having hear her speak “contemporaneously”... there is no way on this earth SHE wrote that.
Her handlers are pure evil.

Any goodwill I’ve felt towards Giffords and the Newtown activist parents has evaporated and been replaced with animus.

LMBO!!!
This kind of lamentation by the scumbag liberals is exactly why Reid never wanted to bring up this legislation in the first place. Ubama really screwed up by pressing the issue.

Does the same go for immigration, Giffords?

Crime Statistics regarding illegal aliens in America by FBI- quick read
http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=7fb_1339912081

They care about crime and citizens being safe or they don’t....

If they REALLY believe that more gun control will stop crime, they MUST also apply that to immigration. They won’t. So gun control is not about citizens being safe.

Some freaking honesty from these weasels would be a nice start. They prefer to make villains out of citizens who support our constitution. Dishonest, chicken-chit global-govt puppet whores. And fools who buy into their bullchit.

IMHO...

THOSE PICTURES SAY IT ALL.

GUNS FOR MASTER’S VASSALS AND HIRELINGS, NO GUNS FOR SLAVES.

Every Federal gun law is unconstitutional.
Repeat this endlessly to your Congressmen.
Form your own local political power groups.
Make your own candidates.
Keep going, don’t stop.
Spread the truth with a glad heart.
No worries; welcome the challenge; think; work; have a great day !

THANKS TGST.

Gabby,

I’m furious as well... at you and your husband for trying to leverage your own misfortune into a further abridgement of 2nd Amendment rights. Further, I’m rather pissed at the gross hypocrisy of your husband for railing on about the “need for gun control,” followed by his purchase of a .45 semiautomatic pistol and an AR-15 self-defense (NOT “ASSAULT”) rifle. Only when caught making that latter purchase, did your husband concoct that phony story about wanting to “show how easy the background check process was.” He also attempted to straw-purchase that item for someone else... doesn’t matter that it’s purported the police department.

I’m furious at Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Shumer, Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey for attempting to slipping into this innocuous-sounding piece of legislation the provision that HIPPA laws could be circumvented by inquisitive federal bureaucrats on fishing expeditions into citizens’ mental health backgrounds.

Finally, I’m REALLY furious at all of you phonies who make the claim to care about saving lives, yet won’t go anywhere near the subject of Kermit Gosnell and that Josef Mengele-like slaughterhouse of his in Philadelphia.

Gabby, if you don’t know it by now, you should.. that you and that crowd from Newtown won’t amount to anything but an afterthought by Monday. Take your toys, your rants and your husband, go home to Arizona, and kindly drift into obscurity.

Seriously...your 15 minutes are up.

Dear Gabby,

ANY elected representative that believes that they, once elected, have the Divine Right by Ascension to limit, deny, infringe, control, or abridge ANY of my sovereign rights as an American, as called out in The Bill of Rights, is under direct scrutiny from Day One. Should they act as described above, I SHALL, with the full Biblical definition of ‘shall’, do all within my means of communication, to inform that elected representative, that I SHALL work for their next election defeat!

Oh, and Gabby, please remove yourself from those that are acting as I have described above. It makes you look bad!

The only cowards in the gun control debate are you Ms. Giffords, and the democrats who hid behind the deaths of 20 children to push an agenda under the guise of protecting “just one child.” Americans saw through the emotional rollingcoster you an your ilk put the American people through while your own husband purchased an AR-15 rifle and a 45 cal. automatic handgun, the same weapons you and your cronies want to outlaw the rest of America from purchasing and possessing!

No mam, you are the coward, along with the socialist you have hooked your lying anti-gun agenda to!

Because of her brain injuries and surgeries, she should not ,by definition of the laws she wants, be in a house with firearms. I’m sure she will get some exemption or certification that the ordinary citizen would not. barring that, the law would simply be ignored for her.

Reminds me of a Steve Seagal movie where the villian is a corrupt Senator who killed the hero’s wife and attempt to kill him and his surviving son after he came out of a 10 year coma. After he disarm the Senator, grabbing the villian by the bathrob he fires his shotgun into the Senator’s crotch. The Senator is still standing and unharmed. Seagal immediately exclaims, “I missed??!! I can’t believe it, I never miss!”

"She was a reasonably respected Congresswoman, now she is a prop for the left and her ambitious husband. Who wrote this? How much does she even understand?

She did not vote for Nancy to the Speaker and supported gun rights. Now I doubt she has any understanding of what is being put out in her name. She used to be solid, I could have voted for her. Do not blame Gabby, the Gabby we knew before the shooting is not the same Gabby of today. Blame the despicable putting out this garbage in her name.

Notice how many of them end up in the publicized 'gangs' -- gang of 6, gang of 8, gang of 13.

Ever notice how every Republican scandal ends with "-gate?" It's because they're all named after "Watergate," a scandal that successfully destroyed a Republican President. The "Gang of (number)" is the same way, named after something else. The original "Gang," the one for all which all these others have been named:

Gang of Four

There are two kinds of gun control advocates; The ‘low information’ and the ‘true believer.’

The ‘low information’ gun control advocates don’t really know anything about guns. They just repeat whatever sound bite or pithy factoid they’ve heard lately. They are either scared of guns or simply don’t like them, don’t know why anyone would want to own a real gun, and wish guns would just go away. While they may not necessarily intend for everyone’s guns to be confiscated they would most likely say ‘Well, it’s probably for the best,’ and go along with it.

The ‘true believer’ gun control advocates have one simple goal: To make the private possession of any firearm a felony. Period. They want to confiscate every gun not controlled by the government. Some simply hate guns while others see privately held guns as an ‘impediment’ to some other goal or plan. They will take as many years as necessary to achieve this goal, decades even. They are nothing if not patient. They will never stop. When they grow too old to continue they will pass on the job to the next generation of ‘true believers.’

This bill’s defeat is simply a battle in an ongoing war.

Gun rights advocates must remain forever vigilant.

I saw her on tv a couple of days ago, standing next to her husband as he made some remarks. She suddenly piped up, interrupting him by inappropriately parroting some phrase he had just used and beaming proudly that she had gotten it right. It just screamed “BRAIN DAMAGE” at me.
