    Giffords, Kelly launch gun control lobbying effort | General Headlines | Comcast

    Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband launched a political action committee aimed at curbing gun violence on Tuesday, the second anniversary of the Tucson shooting that killed six people and left her critically injured.

    Giffords and Mark Kelly wrote in an op-ed published in USA Today that their Americans for Responsible Solutions initiative would help raise money to support greater gun control efforts.

    "Achieving reforms to reduce gun violence and prevent mass shootings will mean matching gun lobbyists in their reach and resources," they wrote in the column.

    They said that it will "raise funds necessary to balance the influence of the gun lobby."

    The Giffords need to Fade away like a fart in the wind.....Giffords Stay out of my town !

    I'd like to see Brian Stowe get the same award.

    Giffords is an admirable person who has shown remarkable resiliency. She has been neither brave, heroic nor particularly courageous.

    Hypocrites.
    I guess since Ms Giffords political career is over and her husband is no longer an astronaut, these two hacks need something else to feed their undying need for attention.

    Since Sandy Hook, not even the Loughner shooting when a pothead went crazy with a gun, but since Sandy Hook, there have been 5 million applications for background checks for new gun owners. What does that tell you about gun control efforts? How many existing gun owners are there? How many who bought a gun without a background check?

    No wonder gun control efforts have failed.

    If she intends to be an attention getting hack, she needs a new wig.

    ...we need to curb violent people...not guns. Violent people will get what they want...illegally...no matter what laws are passed to deny rights to others.

    Curb swords, spears and bows and arrows.

    What utter nonsense this gun control crap is. If criminals could design a law that would help them the most, this is it.
