Honoring Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords [VIDEO]

Marilyn L. - I did a little research (as I should have done before posting my opinion) and discovered that I was wrong., You were absolutely correct. I usually do better fact checking, but this time I was careless. Thanks for catching my error. I apologize to you, other readers of this site, and especially Ms. Gifford.

AJ H not sure where you got your information but I do know the NRA gave Gabby a D+ rating on her gun rights advocacy. That is a pretty low rating and that was before she was shot.

Gabrielle Giffords has many admirable qualitiies, including a great deal of courage and determination. However, she was opposed to sensible gun control regulations before the attempt to assassinate her and, even after being shot in the head and even knowing how many people died in that same attack, she lacks the courage or the wisdom to change her postition on guns. Sorry, Gabby! Because of views like yours innocent people will continue to be slaughtered in America by crazies and stupid people with guns. Your experience has taught you nothing, and that's a crying shame.

My wife and I live in Gabby's district, and have had the great honor of supporting her from the very beginning of her political career. God bless you Gabby, and come back and see us in Cochise County soon. We miss you and all you stand for.

Well for being a Democrat, I can say this woman was well liked by her own party as well as the Republicans! I also believe her kindness and genuine devotion to the love of her work in wanting to make positive changes for the good, was the driving spirit behind her very successful and on going recovery.
