Look, I have the utmost respect for Gabby Giffords, and the hell she went through after nut job Jared Lee Loughner nearly killed her two years ago today. But her statements and sudden launch of a gun control lobbying effort with her husband Mark Kelly just reek of political opportunism, and pure leftist talking points. Giffords issued a statement today complaining about weapons ‘designed for the battlefield’ that can be ‘easily purchased.’ Does Giffords mean this kind of weapon:

Gabby Giffords originally this image, posing with and firing the gun when she was running for re-election in 2010.
I really hoped that someone like Gabby Gifford wouldn’t throw herself into this attack on the Second Amendment, and leave it to the Marxist Democrats in DC. I guess I was asking for too much.
