Shameful how Gabby is being used by dems. She's paraded out to make people feel bad. You would think her husband would protect and shield her from being used as a dem poster child. Her struggling to make a brief statement was painful to watch. Dems, let the lady enjoy her life and stop the photo opts.

I don't think she's being used. I think she is a survivor and wants to make a difference on her own, and not be forgotten. You're a gun lovin
tard that likes the boom boom but not the consequences. An a-hole who believes happiness is a warm gun.

You're apparently a liberal with no leg to stand on, so you cast insults to detract from that fact.

You are free to have an opinion, and even voice it. Try having something to back it, rather than simply saying someone else's thoughts and ideas are wrong because they don't agree with yours, and insulting them.

I thought liberals were into harmony, education, being informed, and non-confrontation. If you are informed and educated, act like it, and post something with some substance and backing.

Panda,like most liberals only knows lies and insults. If they took all weapons away from honest citizens, it would make NO difference in the amount of illegal weapons in the hands of criminals. The only thing it would do is make it easier for the criminals in government to take over our lives. There is even talk among the elites about doing away with the constitution all together. Hitler and Stalin would be SOOOOOO happy.

When turning weapons into plows, you get rid of all of them from everyone, including government. Otherwise it is the people who still have the weapons that usually force the ones who do not to use the plows or else. So point of order. What governments ever get rid of weapons. In fact ours is increasing every type to be used on its own. In western culture. Particularly our variation. Do people actually believe the criminal element will not have access to weapons? Especially when our own government does nothing to certain groups in a general sense who have much higher crime rates when they act out of line and irresponsible. The human species has not advanced enough to eliminate these things. And DEFENSE is part of the whole picture.

If you ban assault weapons and hc magazines, it decreases the amount in criminals hands. It doesn't eliminate them, but over time they become negligible.

Contrary to the above post, it does not affect the government's use of same.

Some more Facts:

Remember when the liberal media and their sycophants tried to blame the shooting of Gabriel Giffords, et al on Conservative talk radio and a host of other imaginary conservative causes? It all fizzled when we learned that he was a liberal left wing kook. The silence from the frothing liberal media was deafening...

Remember when the shooting at Newtown, Ct revealed that they found an AR-15 (Assault rifle) in the trunk of the shooters car, not in the school? Well, it seems that the liberal media tried to hide that fact from the public for political reasons? It was found that the carnage was inflicted by 4 hand guns, not an AR-15. So much for truth in reporting from the 'lame stream media' and this WH...

Something else to consider -- Could it be that this administration is not afraid of pistols, but 'shoulder type weapons'? Think about it.....

In a diverse culture where people blame each other for every offense, this is dangerous. government usually comes in with an answer to keep the peace. and the terror. .... Contrary to the above post. It does give the impetus to government to become monstrous. As it is becoming now.

Please explain how banning "assault weapons" and hc magazines will decrease the amount in criminal hands.

There are already millions here that are grandfathered in. There will be black market import of banned weapons and accessories, and the only ones abiding laws are the law abiding. Not the criminals.

The proposed gun legislation will do nothing more than take law abiding citizens rights away, and make them more vulnerable to criminals.

I don't understand how you could look at the violent crime and murder stats from a place like Chicago IL., compare them to a place like Kennesaw GA. and still think the way you do.

You're an efn genius. Applying your logic, if they took all weapons from dishonest citizens, it would make a HUGE difference in the amount of illegal weapons on the street.

A quick peek at the FBI Statistics on gun murder by race shows we don't have to blame each other.
It's obvious lawmakers don't care about who commits the majority of violent crime, or making punishment much more severe to fit the crime.
Law enforcement has to follow the lawmakers' lead. To some degree, their hands are tied.
The best thing anyone can do, is contact their State and Federal lawmakers and push for stiffer penalties for law breakers.

If that towards me, I have been for the end of our warring and the removal of tyranny laws in america. that is not Hitleresque. Unlike the U.K. which seems to have an infatuation with massive security state. It is a shame. The land that gave the rule of law and the Magna Carta is reduced to a surveillance prison.When it comes to feminism. Most women work hum drum jobs for fifty years now. Relationships with men are brutal or worse then in the past and we say we love our kids while someone else watches them in both two parent and the growing one parent families. The west is turning into a bunch of soul less cretins that are owed. If not for the financial district known as "the city' there would be no reason to recognize you anymore. But the elitists are headquartered there, and we are all subservant to them. Our special relationship! Bwahha! I wan t no argument with you. In th eend this will be bad.

Most of the 20,000 gun laws presently on the books are infringement of our second amendment rights.
