Gabrielle Giffords: ‘Too many children are dying’


Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords gave a brief opening statement at the start of congressional hearings this morning regarding “What Should America Do about Gun Violence." Her speech is halting because of her lingering injuries, but Giffords makes her point.

"Too many children are dying,"said Giffords. "It will be hard, but the time is NOW."  "You. Must. Act. Be bold. Be courageous. Americans are counting on you."

  1. Dear Mrs Giffords,

    I appreciate your efforts on gun control but you swore to uphold the constitution of the US. The second amendment was written to prevent Govt. abuse of the Citizens. The Obama Administration, through Fast and Furious, has contributed to more deaths than any other entitity. Please consider and address this. Vitally Important.
