Gabby Giffords going after Pro-Rights Senators:

The group co-founded by former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband is rolling out a series of radio ads starting Wednesday against Senate Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell and Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte, calling them out for voting against last week’s gun control legislation.

The ads, aimed at women, go up in Kentucky against McConnell and in New Hampshire against Ayotte and will saturate the airwaves over the next two weeks.

“The ads highlight McConnell and Ayotte’s putting loyalty to the special interest gun lobby in Washington instead of supporting wildly popular sensible policies that would keep their communities safer,” the group Americans for Responsible Solutions said in a statement to “In Kentucky, 82 percent of people support background checks; in New Hampshire, 89 percent of residents support them.”

This “Support” crap is really nonsense, as people’s “Support” for a law that isn’t written and has no specifics is different from an actual written law.

On the surface, the poll released by The Washington Post and Pew Research Center made no sense. Only 47 percent of respondents said they were “disappointed” or “angry” that the Senate last week failed to advance a bill to expand background checks to gun shows and online sales.

That article I think misses the point I’ve generally seen with all legislative polls. People support vague ideas, but can be turned by bad bill drafting. After Sandy Hook allegedly there was support for a renewed “Assault Weapons Ban”….but as soon as a bill was introduced it died in committee and there was ZERO public support.

I’d say one reason is in both bills people quickly realized how punitive it would be to most individuals, and another reason is with nebulous ideas, you can pool a lot of people together. I’ve heard antis grouse that the background check bill wasn’t enough, while many have said it was too strict, and yet to the general idea both people would be “Supportive”.

Either way, In think former Senator Giffords will quickly see how well corrupt carpet baggers do when they attempt to buy political favor. Just ask Mikey Bloomberg!

    Here’s an idea:

    We know that more people are killed each year in and by automobiles than guns. From drunk driving, to unlicensed or uninsured drivers, the hazards on our Public Roadways are many and various. Therefore, For The Public Good, we must ensure that every driver of an automobile is properly trained and qualified to operate that motor vehicle. Therefore, let’s introduce a bill banning transfer of an automobile without a Driving Record Check, performed of course by an authorized Motor Vehicle Dealer. It’s fast, easy, and can be done at any major auto dealership and many minor ones. When handing someone, anyone, the keys to a Motor Vehicle, a Driving Record Check must be performed first. Upon satisfactory completion of the Driving Record Check, the recepient of the keys may then take possession of the Motor Vehicle.

    Of course, this will apply to ALL Motor Vehicle Key Transfers. So, you might not want to pull over and let your wife drive on the long road trip, or give your son or daughter driving lessons or practice out on the back forty. You can, of course, drive over to the nearest Motor Vehicle Dealer for a Key Transfer (for a nominal fee, of course), then head back for another Key Transfer when you’re done.

    Worked into this, of course, will be a ban on High Weight Vehicles, otherwise known as “rigs,” “trucks,” and “eighteen wheelers.” No new HVRs may be produced for sale to the public at large, although current privately-existing HVRs will be exempt under a “grandfather clause.” Properly trained Government Representatives will also be exempt from this prohibition.

    Well, it makes sense by the anti-gunners’ perspective, only replacing MAIG and the Brady bunch with MADD or some similar agitator. But it doesn’t make any sense at all, and the American public would never stand for it. Yet driving is a privilege, not a right. So, if we’re unwilling to do THIS, why the hell should we put up with any sort of private transfer ban on guns?

    Giffords wasn’t a Senator…
    Unless you mean State Senator. She was one of those.
