Gabby Giffords in DC: Seeks new gun restrictions

Sales and transfers of firearms in peril with “universal registration”

Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will be back on Capitol Hill today diligently working to expand criminal background checks on all firearms sales.

Last session similar legislation failed to get a hearing in the U.S. House.

Currently, stores selling firearms check purchasers with designated law enforcement agencies to ensure the customer doesn’t have a criminal history. Democrat lawmakers want to expand such checks to private transfers, sales and those at gun shows.

The National Rifle Association, a Second Amendment protection organization, firmly opposes such restrictions, noting that many people convicted of crimes involving guns obtained them through theft, making ‘straw’ purchases, or on the black market, entirely evading background checks.

Watch this video to find out the shocking truth about “illegal transfers.”

After she was severely wounded in 2011, Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly founded Americans for Responsible Solutions, an organization that advocates for stricter gun laws —- while hypocritically exempting themselves. Just two years ago we posted “What’s this? Gabby’s hubby buys “assault weapon?” 

A leading proponent of restricting gun ownership and the Second Amendment Rights of others, the duplicitous Kelly was busted making his own gun purchases — including an AR-15, which he disparages as an “assault rifle”–– and claims should be disallowed for Americans to own. Kelly has previously claimed the purpose of such weapons is “to kill a lot of people very quickly,” and criticized such products as “too readily available.”

Mark Kelly was photographed at 3:30 pm on the afternoon of March 5, 2013 at Diamondback Police Supply, 170 S. Kolb Street, Tucson, AZ, making his purchases, including “high capacity” magazines and a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol.

Seeing Red AZ has previously exposed other liberal hypocrites who desire to restrict our ability for self protection while ensuring their own — even having concealed carry permits.

The Second Amendment is about much more than simply carrying concealed, hunting, or sport shooting. Our right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny. The U.S. Constitution and 44 States have Constitutional provisions enumerating the Individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

    Keeping and bearing arms is one thing, but having the ammunition to use those arms against a tyranny of the elites is a totally new argument by these gun grabbers. Excessive regulations and background checks is an “infringement” of keeping and bearing, but as of yet there is no SCOTUS case that would define it, especially with regard to the ammo.

    If she was so concerned about crime she should talk to Obama …. for it was he that released 158,000 CONVICTED ILLEGALS, with criminal records. Gifford’s didn’t say a peep of a complaint about that and now only wants more background checks? Why doesn’t she ask Obama why he pardoned these illegals as she sees law abiding citizens as the problem. Background checks would rarely help lower crime rates … for it all starts in the home and the responsibility of being a parent, sharing the rights of others to live free from coercion and fear. Teach your children well … and this would never be a problem … like the politicians are today.
    There is a REASON why DHS bought up 1.4 billion rounds of ammo for AR-15’s, AK-47’s, and .40 cal. hollow point ammunition. Something is coming our way, and using the Boy Scout motto .. Be Prepared.

    How right you are, John!! Our freedoms are eroding more and more with each passing day. Liberals have no constraints when it comes to gutting our Constitutional liberties.

  3. Tucson GOP says:

    Team Giffords (and their like minded restrictionists) use the horrificTucson shooting perpetrated by a leftiest lunatic to promote their anti-gun agenda for the rest of us….never themselves. The two of them are phonies.

      As mentioned many times, you have just begun to see the Giffords publicity machine and will see one of them run for higher office soon.

  4. Cave Creek Cal says:

    Has anyone found the answer to why the Obama administration is hoarding ammo? Have you tried buying any lately? Not easy to find….

  5. Doc says:

    It is incomprehensible & reprehensible to me that Giffords husband Kelly marches her around, WITH A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY, having her espouse & forward HIS personal gun control agenda. Especially after he’s been purchasing the very firearms he would have us common-folk be denied. This man is despicable. To my knowlege his poor wife, democrat though she was, was a Supporter of the 2nd Amendment. Li’l eric holder & he must be good friends…socialist pigs th’ both of them…

  6. SmallGovt says:

    As I have stated many times, Gabby is looking for a forum and can’t stay from a crowd.. Either she or hubby will be running for higher office. Amazing that a judge was killed in the incident and we hear nothing about any of the others except Gabby

  7. SmallGovt says:

    Maybe then SRAZ will expose Giffords and hubby for the publicity hounds they are and the agenda they obviously have.
