People Who Won’t Give Up Their Own Handguns Testify In Favor Of Gun Control

Without sounding too insensitive, Democrats brought out Gabby Giffords to make an emotional plea during the Senate hearings Wednesday

(CNN) Her voice was halting, but not weak.

Two years after being shot in the head by a gunman at a political event, former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords appeared at the first congressional hearing since last month’s Connecticut school massacre to urge Congress to act now on gun violence.

“Too many children are dying. Too many children. We must do something,” Giffords said in a rare public appearance Wednesday, reading a statement that acknowledged her injuries made it difficult to speak.

“It will be hard, but the time is now,” she told the packed hearing held by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Both her and her husband Mark Kelly own handguns. If they really believe guns are a problem, they should turn them in to the police to be melted down. And we should all be concerned when people start talking about “Doing Something”, because it usually means a loss of freedom through Government regulation, especially done because of emotion.

If we really want to Do Something, it should revolve around going after criminals and punishing them harshly. But, instead, The Government and people like Giffords and Kelly want to infringe on the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of law abiding citizens, punishing them before they’ve committed a crime

National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre blamed the government for failing to enforce existing gun laws and said new restrictions, including background checks, won’t stop criminals from using weapons in violent crime.

“Law-abiding gun owners will not accept blame for the acts of violent or deranged criminals, nor do we believe that government should dictate what we can lawfully own and use to protect our families,” he said.

Why would the government start now? They already broke the law in trafficking guns across the border to Mexico, and people in the Obama administration have the blood of 2 US Federal agents and over 200 Mexicans on their hands. Strange how Democrats and their compliant media, along with Giffords and Kelly, weren’t particularly concerned about that gun violence, eh?

Interestingly, another woman, Gayle Trotter, testified before the Senate, saying what Democrats are attempting to do would make women less safe, as she told Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) who was badgering her

“You are not a young mother who has a young child with her,” she said. “And I am passionate about this position because you cannot understand, you are not a woman stuck in her house, having to defend her children, not able to leave her child, not able to seek safety, on the phone with 911, and she cannot get the police there fast enough to protect her child, and she is not used to being in a fire fight.”

Interestingly, many liberals, who tell us they are there to protect the rights of women, immediately started denigrating her for daring to get out of the kitchen and advocate. Here’s TBogg, who calls her a “Crazy Mama

Here is entirely reasonable mother of six, Gayle Trotter explaining the daily grind of taking care of her kids, washing and cleaning, making dinner, and blowing away hordes of ruffians and scalawags intent upon breaching the sanctity of her home is order to steal her Ethan Allen sideboard and matching china closet.

Hmm, that’s not too sexist, wouldn’t you say?

The recession is coming back with a vengeance, for which Obama’s lazy inaction, childlike fixes, extremely irresponsible policies and terrible judgment are directly to blame, and yet his popularity is increasing. That is insane.

On a democracy its people get the government that they deserve. And Democrats complain about inequities? I’ll tell you about inequities – the millions of us who are getting screwed, because those same chronic complainers are too lazy, too stupid, too neurotic and too immoral to put these issues in their proper perspectives.

Care to place a wager Brian on whether the US economy will go into a recession in the next 12 months ?http://www.intrade.com/v4/markets/contract/?contractId=755863
Intrade doesn’t think so. You can get 4 to 1 odds if you really do think that a recession is coming.

Your ignorance is stunning.

We are already in a recession, and there was only 1/10 of 1% growth in the last quarter of 2012; a significant decline since 2009.

Don’t you ever read or listen to any news, other than the Democrats’ propoganda?

They’re the Energizer Bunnies of liars, embellishing on lies with more lies.

BTW, Don’t try to impress me by trying to look intelligent and savvy and informed on current affairs, It ain’t work’n for you.
