Gabby Giffords Is a Hypocrite

I feel bad for Gabby Giffords being shot in the head. I don't wish violence on anyone.

But yesterday's emotional demonstration for the Senate only highlighted how much of a hypocrite Gabby Giffords is.

She said, in regard to supporting more gun control, "Too many children are dying. Too many children!"

Evidently, she is supports more gun control because it has directly effected her, but ignores the FACT that more children are killed by abortion EACH DAY than are killed in America in an ENTIRE YEAR.

If Gabby Giffords truly had the welfare of children in mind, she wouldn't be wasting her time testifying against guns, she would be testifying against abortion!

According to the website  here is Former Representative Giffords stand on abortion:

  • Abortions should always be legally available. (Nov 2000)
  • Voted YES on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines. (Jan 2007)
  • Provide emergency contraception at military facilities. (Apr 2007)
  • Ensure access to and funding for contraception. (Feb 2007)
  • Focus on preventing pregnancy, plus emergency contraception. (Jan 2009)
  • Endorsed by EMILY's list for pro-choice Democratic women. (Sep 2010)
There is really no other explanation for this disparity than to conclude that Gabby Giffords is a hypocrite when it comes to protecting children.

Perhaps she has been duped into testifying in favor of gun control. Perhaps the liberal left has convinced her that people don't have the right to "bear arms" but do have the right to kill unborn children.

Her plea in front of the Senate Hearing yesterday was a pathetic publicity stunt by those who wish to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.

Remember, the gun control debate isn't about protecting children or reducing crime; it's about control. You must ask yourself why Congress keeps exempting themselves from any new gun legislation; why do they want an unarmed citizenry?

The Emotion of Gun Control

Gun Control. 

The very words evoke emotion. Most of the emotion is anger. Anger by those for gun control and anger by those against gun control.

I understand the emotion of those who desire more gun control. After watching media reports of mass shootings, often correctly called massacres, there is great emotion to control what happened.

Unfortunately, emotion gets in the way of rational thought and media attention promotes irrational thinking.

We've heard the old adage, "guns don't kill people; people kill people."  Well, as hard as it is for gun control evangelists to understand or believe, this old adage is actually true.

I have been a gun owner since I was twelve years old. My guns have only killed rabbits, squirrels, birds, and a few unfortunate tin cans that happened to be laying around.  Never have my guns been pointed at anyone and never once have they killed anyone. 

Well, that may not be entirely true. I inherited a 10 gauge shotgun (which doesn't work any longer) which has the family history of possibly having killed a horse thief prior to the American Civil War, but there is no way to substantiate that claim.

Nevertheless, as an American, I am guaranteed the right to own firearms. The 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution provides every citizen with this right. The British host of  CNN's Piers Morgan Live, Piers Morgan, incorrectly claimed on his Twitter account: “The 2nd amendment was devised with muskets in mind, not high-powered handguns & assault rifles. Fact.”

This kind of thought is dangerous to the well being of Americans and the survivability of the US Constitution.  Oh yeah, it was all a result of a revolt against tyrannic rulers from England, Maybe that's why Morgan thinks it should only be muskets and seeks to undermine our Constitution.

Gun control advocates want to ban assault rifles and high capacity magazines.

Again, more emotion. Gun control advocates want to do something, but they just don't know WHAT to do. So instead of thoughtful resolution, they go after emotional issues.

Gun control isn't really about controlling guns; it's about controlling people.

Who is really behind the gun control movement? Yes, you have all kinds of liberals who have jumped on the band wagon, but who is driving the wagon?

I believe it to be those who wish to destroy America as we know it. Those who desire a dis-armed population that they can control, or dispose of, without resistance.  History has shown this an effective population control method of other countries.

In America, we have the 2nd Amendment to protect Americans from those who would attempt to control us like Hitler, Stalin, or Mao.

Unfortunately, many well-meaning people have bought into the idea that if you control who has guns, you can control crime and prevent massacres.

Ask those who died in the Murrah Federal Building or the World Trade Center how many guns were used in those massacres.

And don't forget about Chicago. Chicago has the toughest gun control laws in  America and the highest homicide rate in America?

Coincidence?  I don't think so.
