Gabrielle Giffords and her Husband Aim Fire at NRA as They Launch New Gun Control Group

Jim and Sarah Brady - Handgun Control Inc.

(I guess it's not just about hand guns anymore)

Two years ago today, then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was critically injured in Tucson when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire while she was meeting with constituents, killing six people. Since then “Congress has done something quite extraordinary—nothing at all,” write Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly write in a USA Today op-ed announcing the launch of Americans for Responsible Solutions. The group, a new political action committee that aims to decrease gun violence, “will raise the funds necessary to balance the influence of the gun lobby,” Giffords and Kelly write.

The couple sat down with ABC’s Diane Sawyer for an interview that will be airing Tuesday. "I think we all need to try to do something about [gun violence]," Kelly told Sawyer. "It's obvious to everybody we have a problem. And problems can be solved."

The former lawmaker and former astronaut make clear that they are supporters of gun rights, noting they have two guns in their home. But they want to create a powerful counterpart to the NRA to end the lopsided nature of political contributions in the gun debate. “We saw from the NRA leadership's defiant and unsympathetic response to the Newtown, Conn., massacre that winning even the most common-sense reforms will require a fight,” they write.

Today, Tucson will mark the anniversary of the shooting by ringing bells across the city at the very moment when Loughner opened fire, reports the Associated Press.

Gabrielle Giffords, and Jim Brady are lucky to still be alive.  250 to 292 million other human beings simply are not.

"They" are prepping for the chaos that will ensue, after complete economic collapse.  In order to survive the economic collapse "they" orchestrated, they'll have to disarm the public.

Petition Demands Obama Turn In All His Guns


It is clear, what the Founders intended, by writing the 2nd Amendment the way they did. The Supreme Court, itself, has upheld that interpretation. It seems quite clear to me, that the Founders were simply putting down on paper, what they understood was a GOD-GIVEN RIGHT, of the individual to protect himself, and family, primarily from government tyranny. So, the way I see it - the ONLY GOD-GIVEN RIGHT(S), that the government can "take" away from you, are those that YOU FAIL TO EXERCISE! The government really has NOTHING to do, whatsoever, with how the individual chooses to exercise his/her GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS!

"Democide, or death by government, has killed hundreds of millions of people just in the last century alone, making it the number one cause of unnatural death in the 20th century."  (Estimates are between 250 and 292 million deaths
were caused by government).
