It is tempting to nominate former Tucson congresscreaturette Gabrielle “The Martyrette” Giffords for T2 of the Week/Month/Year/Century. However, I’m resisting that temptation, permanently, because she 1) is grossly overqualified for such an award and 2) already gets too much of the public’s undeserved attention. However, I still feel compelled to highlight, for those who haven’t already been made aware it, the latest dollop of monumental hypocrisy flung by Gabby and her equally parasitic and reprehensible husband Mark Kelly. For all the impassioned gun-grabbing pleas vomited up by the cerebrally-compromised polette and her sponge of a spouse, it appears that Gabby and Mark are both gun owners themselves: in fact, owners of the very type of gun the bullets from which scrambled what little brains Gabby had on January 8, 2011. Go figure.
The linked CBS news article, in a fashion typical of gun-ignorant Establishment media scriveners, makes much of the fact that “the couple's 9 mm Glock holds fewer bullets than the one used the Tucson shooting spree.”
Yeah, I know. I also immediately, reflexively found myself asking “your point being…?”
My kitchen carving knife is from the same manufacturer that made the knife used by a neighbor to stab his wife to death, but it has a shorter blade. I guess that makes it a “safer” weapon to use for all concerned if I should ever become inclined to use it to commit murder instead of as a kitchen implement, the sole purpose of this object for the majority millions of its users.
Read the entire linked article, if you can stand it, for additional helpings of the bizarre “reasoning” Gabby spews as to why she, and not you and I, should be allowed to own guns. Seriously, folks, you can’t make this kind of shit up. But this is Tucson, so we can rest assured that there are hundreds –no, hell, thousands— of brainless T2s hanging their every waking thought (or what passes for them) on what Gun-grabbin’ Gabby and Moocher Mark say.
The article tells us that Mark Kelly likes to “shoot … pots and water bottles off large rocks in a desert area with Giffords watching from a porch.” It would appear that Kelly is ignorant of something the vast majority of us gun owners are intimately familiar with: "basic firearms safety." Wouldn't it be an act of divine justice if one of those bullets ricocheted off of one of those “large rocks” and led Gabby to relive some history?
