Breitbart’s Absolutely Disgusting Attack On Gabby Giffords

Lies and Damn Lies
Wingnuts • Views: 26,078

Last week Gabby Giffords co-authored an op-ed for CNN on Domestic Abuse and gun violence.

Guns killing women: Time for Congress to act

Basically, she is asking Congress to extend Federal gun laws that protect married women against abusive spouses to include single women who are abused and stalked.

Seems, to me anyway, a reasonable position.

That’s why it is time for Congress to address this lethal mix of domestic violence and guns. Our leaders must pass laws that prevent stalkers and abusers from accessing guns to intimidate, hurt or kill women.

The numbers should shock you: Women in America are 11 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than women in other democratic countries with developed economies. In domestic abuse situations, if the abuser has access to a gun, it increases the chance that a woman will die by 500%.

Most of the time, women are murdered with guns by someone they know, either by a family member or an intimate partner, such as a former or current husband or boyfriend.
Between 2001 and 2012, more women were shot to death by an intimate partner in our country than the total number of American troops killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined. That is a national shame.

Fortunately, the momentum is on our side. On Wednesday, the Senate will hold its first-ever hearing on domestic violence homicides and the use of gun violence against America’s women. Many of our elected leaders are calling for new protections for those who are subject to abuse. States are already taking bipartisan action. And Americans support these laws by staggering margins.

Currently, federal law prevents people who are under domestic violence protection orders or have misdemeanor domestic violence convictions from accessing guns. But even though increasing numbers of couples are choosing to marry later in life, the law hasn’t been extended to address dating partner abuse. And convicted stalkers can still get guns.
Common sense says that these dangerous loopholes should be closed now. Congress has the power to do it.

This is a few days ago so maybe it is old news to some, but I couldn’t help being thoroughly disgusted by Breitbart’s reaction to Giffords’ op-ed. First, by the title; it is a complete misrepresentation of the op-ed. She never mentioned “war on women” nor implied it. Then, there are the vile comments about Gabby Giffords.

Gabby Giffords: Guns Are Part of a War on Women

Gabby, I’m sorry you were shot in the head, but you were shot in the head! You’re position on anything is seriously discounted because of that fact. Shut up. Go away and enjoy your congressional pension and let the grown ups mind the store. SHUT UP, GABBY!!!! You didn’t have a gun the day you were shot! I think you should have had one, dumb a**!!!

This is odd….seeing as how that babes on THE VIEW are calling for all women to become armed in order to protect themselves and their kids.
Stupidity is getting more gender specific as time goes by….\
Ladies…try keeping your arguments on the same page.

Mark Kelly is a great Dummy operator. I never see his lips move. And he is great at pitching his voice up.

Being shot in the head helps in being a useful idiot!



So Gabby… women are too stupid and useless to buy a gun and defend themselves? Not the women I know. Who’s waging the war on women now?



AS SOON AS HER WORTHLESS HUSBAND GETS A JOB AND QUITS FEEDING OFF THIS POOR WOMAN, THE SOONER SHE CAN RELAX AND QUIT BEING HAULED AROUND LIKE A CART PONY!!

And another thing… this crap here is the war on women! They want to leave my daughters with no defense against the creeps in this world they have another think coming! In Arizona we the best gun rights, plus conceal/carry. You will never change that, EVER! We are keeping our firearms. Suck on that!

Sorry Gabs, but you may want to get tested for lead poisoning…. Yup, I just went there. Why? Nice doesn’t work with “these” people.

I saw a video of her driving by in a car using her right arm. You folks are suckers and believe anything you are told. Shot in the forehead and out the back and no visible scaring or discoloration. Hair doesn’t grow through scar tissue. Boy people sure are gullible. One of the bystanders who was the last one shot , got shot twice in the arm and once in the back. 2 days later she is laughing and waving her arms all around while doing a interview. LOL Get out of here Gabby you PHONY

They don’t seem to have read the Op-Ed at all. Nobody is trying to take away guns from women or anybody else, unless they have a history of domestic abuse/stalking.

I’d like to see Gabby take my wife’s .25 Cal. Colt away from her

Gabby owns guns, but her and Mark, don’t want you to own any !

These people are ignorant, hateful liars. And that is putting it as mildly as possible.
