The Super PAC set up for ex-Congresswoman and professional martyr Gabrielle Giffords by a sleazy Texas hurricane lawyer is now dumping the American part of its name.
The name sharpens its attack on the Second Amendment by emphasizing that rights are limited by responsibilities. This false dichotomy, as usual, obscures the fact that the war against the Second Amendment isn’t about responsible gun ownership. It’s about outlawing gun ownership stage by stage under the guise of responsible solutions.
Giffords has begun dumping her campaign cash into the Super PAC and donating it to “conservative” senators who come out for limiting the Second Amendment in line with the anti-2nd agenda.
The first donations will be to Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), who along with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) worked on the bipartisan gun control measure, which did not clear the Senate.
Giffords’ congressional campaign also gave money to Manchin a few months ago. Other donations will go to Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), both of whom supported the measure. Hagan is facing a tough fight for reelection in 2014.
The Giffords gang is trying to seem more moderate than the Bloomberg approach which backfired badly. Bloomberg may have unintentionally done pro-2nd amendment groups a big favor with his arrogant overreach of power.
Gabrielle Giffords, or whoever is really running the show, is sticking to a more subtle approach. Meanwhile her creepy husband has set up Veterans for Responsible Solutions as a sister group.
Kelly is taking point on the initiative as a veteran himself. The former astronaut is a retired Navy captain, becoming a combat veteran as a military aviator. “I’ve been shot at” while flying, Kelly told reporters on a conference call organized to promote the initiative.
That was in Desert Storm… where apparently he had a near-death experiences.
Then, Kelly spoke vividly of his career as both a navy pilot and astronaut, ranging from near death experiences in Desert Storm to the dangers of traveling into space.
Don’t forget the incredible dangers of building an entire industry around your wife because a crazy person shot her.
