Renowned gun-grabber backs NC’s Stein, Jackson in 2024

No one disputes that what happened to former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D) was terrible and tragic.  In 2011, she was shot in the head by a lunatic who crashed a public meet-and-greet she was hosting.  It’s a tragedy anytime an innocent person is wounded or killed — whether or not a firearm is involved.

Giffords miraculously survived the incident and has made amazing progress in her recovery.  Giffords and some allies have formed what they call a “gun safety” advocacy group.  But Giffords, herself, made a true Freudian slip about the nature and purpose of her group in this 2023 Time article:

[…] As we wrap our interview in her office, I ask how she keeps coming back to a challenge so deeply ingrained in politics. She pauses for 12 pregnant seconds.

“No more guns,” she says.

Ambler, her aide and adviser, tries to clarify that she means no more gun violence, but Giffords is clear about what she’s saying. “No, no, no,” she says. “Lord, no.” She pauses another 32 seconds. “Guns, guns, guns. No more guns. Gone.” […]

One might expect Giffords suffered some neurological trauma as the result of that awful day in 2011.  But this excerpt — demonstrating the idea here is NOT ‘gun safety’ but ‘gun-grabbing” — offers up a bit of karma for the gun-grabbing activists using Giffords for their own nefarious political purposes.

Giffords is the latest crime victim to be converted into a celebrity spokesperson for the gun-grabbers. (She’s married to current Democrat US senator Mark Kelly of Arizona.).

Many of us remember Sarah Brady, the wife of Reagan press secretary Jim Brady.  She transitioned to the anti-gun position after her husband was wounded in the assassination attempt on then-president Reagan. The grabbers knew then, as they know now, what a challenge it can be to argue against an actual shooting victim and his / her family.

How does this tie into North Carolina’s 2024  elections?  The Giffords gun-grabbers have endorsed Josh Stein (D) for governor and Jeff Jackson (D) for attorney general.

 If Jackson and Stein’s beliefs actually are in line with those of the Giffords group, that pair officially moves to THE LEFT of former governors Easley, Perdue and soon-to-be-former governor Cooper

The worst gun violence in this country happens in the places with the strongest anti-gun restrictions.  “Gun-Free Zones” — schools, churches, shopping malls — are popular locations for mass shootings.  Law-abiding people obey the rules.  But the kind of folks who would perpetrate mass shootings are not going to be deterred by a a few signs or the threat of being arrested for possessing a firearm. 

Just imagine how a handful of people on-scene packing concealed firearms could change the situation. They could dramatically reduce the final body count — from countless innocents dead or wounded to ONE dead criminal. 

Many lawmen will tell you the criminal class is loaded with cowards.  Many thugs would not consider assaulting a location where there just might be a handful of heroes packing concealed firearms waiting for them.
