    Her shooting was horrific. I feel for her and her husband and her family. But she was shot in the head. She has some degree of brain damage. She was trotted out again this morning solely for the emotional effect on the gun debate. Liberals are despicable.

    I bear no inappropriate guilt or shame...
    I do bear effective arms that I too might not be a victim.
    We have a choice, not that it matters to some...

    I realize it sounds cold hearted, but as bad as what happened to her was, imagine how many more people will die if she gets her way.
    I didn't hurt anybody with my guns and I don't feel the need to give up anything to give morons the illusion of security.

    Getting shot in the head does not qualify you to design social policy.

    Too bad that in their hurry to rationalize the argument that guns are bad, government officials parade victims of shootings before the cameras, simply to elicit sympathy that will result in taking away some of our citizens rights.

    Where are the discussions with the many persons that are not victims of physical abuse or death, because they possessed a firearm when threatened with deadly force.

    Some public records of some of these people do exist. But they are not essential to the elimination of the Second Amendment rights of select citizens. Control is the issue, not guns.

    This is not a discussion, and it never has been. It's a witch hunt, to eliminate peoples ability to protest government abuse, and recognize a right to self protection. The government wants all the control of an individuals self protection, because it is another means of control, not because it is "right" or even feasible.

    No one in Government, local or federal, wants a rational evaluation. this is about control and preys on illogical and uninformed fear.

    The Government wants no interference from the populace in doing whatever it feels furthers it goals, regardless of what the citizens want. It's still about control.

    Obviously with the consent of her husband who was standing next to her as she read her statement.

    I gather Mr. & Mrs. Giffords now run an anti-gun group, ala' the Brady Bunch. I guess people have forgotten who Brady was and now we have a new, modern version of him and his group,

    All we want, and need, is the superior firepower to eliminate threats like Loughner.

    You are right. There is no question they (liberal bureaucrats) want to 'control' guns! And they will not not stop at anything, will use any circumstance (and the victims), to achieve this desired goal of no guns, except for the appointed elite!

    I hope there is more and more congressional jibber jabber; the more time that passes without any ground being made, the less chance of anything getting passed.

    She's the new James Brady - they wheeled him out constantly until, oddly enough, he was able to walk and recovered more brain function.

    It's hard to argue what didn't happen against things that did happen, the sleazebags foisting gun control know this.

    Having Gabby Giffords at this hearing is the same as having children at Obama's executive order signing a couple of weeks ago. Using whatever "props" you need to try and sway the soft-headed fools into thinking gun control is going to save lives. Pathetic and downright disgusting.
