Yes, because something awful happened to me, we have to restrict all of you.

Could be argued that what Gifford's is doing is selfish.

This woman is exploiting her experience. I am sorry she was wounded by a loony volunteer from her own office, but she cannot have the legal guns from the rest of America. She has become as loony as the nut who shot her.

You think the guy who shot her concerned himself about following a 'gun law'??

Old Chinese proverb, don't throw out bowl of rice, because one grain not cooked. Just because one thing bad happened to Gifford, and actually has happened daily in Chicago for 30 years, doesn't change the constitution of why our founding fathers added the second amendment. Just as in those times, there is potential danger from the government, terrorist, gangbangers and thieves, nothing has changed. Just as in colonial times, we need what our enemies have as weapons or better or we are doing our families a diservice.

I say the only compromise is if the gun laws stays the same then President Obama gets to send his killer Drone Army around the country to take out unpatriotic right-wing tea-baggers…
Fair?

Sorry Pat. That would not be called compromise.
Is there anything this man does wrong? I mean really?

We used to be taught what freedom is when we went to school. Yeah, we are a nation with faults, but this. Now we just shout USA, USA or tell everyone we are. Well we are not. The laws being passed and expanded on over the years are not conducive to freedom. To actually have debates over drones, stockpiling ammo, light tanks, law after law enacted to remove our rights and people actually backing this up. The president is evil. Many in Washington are evil. You don't have to like what I write, but it is still the truth. Smiles and rhetoric while your underlings do the nasty deeds does not make one not part of the fascist agenda. He even opens his mouth at times, spouting his true colors. You will rue the day you felt such love for this silver tongued serpent. Just as you blame Bush for the effects of his administration, this one will be ten times worse. For he is no different. A tipping point will be reached at some juncture by the majority. the majority who took care of their own problems first and played by the rules at a much higher percentage. When they join you, game over. If not forced on us before.

It must have been extremely difficult for Gabby and the other survivors to go to the place that irrevocably changed their lives. And because of this, it is understandable that they would want to speak out against the senseless act of gun violence. Kudos to her and the other survivors.

Do you think she had armed people around her? Absolutely. What makes her worth so much more than your wife, girl friend, mother, daughter?

Yes, it could be argued, but it would be a losing argument. When personal "freedom" encroaches on societal freedom, societal freedom must prevail.

Read the frigging article. It's about background checks, not gun ownership. Most Americans favor it. It will happen. Then the fight will continue, to get assault weapons out of the paws of civilians.

That is hardly the point. A proper background check might have kept him from owning a firearm in the first place.

If you had any sense of shame, you'd never post another word on Topix.

I would hope you would admit that those folks who have been massacred and slaughtered during our recent gun massacres have had their "personal freedoms" encroached upon?

Yes, those guys would prefer their societal freedom rather than being buried in the ground. Their families and friends would probably agree with those victims too.

Dear, unless you have been living under a stone, you know that it not only Gabby Giffords who has had "a bad thing happen" but numerous others have been massacred and slaughtered by guns in our violent country.

Has the gun business/NRA used some of those victims wounded and/or massacred by you gun toting folks in their promotional material - or are they betting on fear and paranoia to make money on guns, guns, guns? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
