After almost succumbing to a schizophrenic’s shooting spree that killed six innocent people in an Arizona parking lot, former congresswoman Gabby Giffords has become the poster child for gun control.
Seated in the first lady’s skybox for the president’s State of the Union address, Gabby Giffords and husband, Mark Kelly, were among a group of selected VIPs, all of whom had their lives negatively impacted by gun violence.
Wearing their gun violence awareness ribbons on their lapels, the Kellys’ presence was a powerful addition to the “They deserve a vote” portion of the SOTU. At the end of the address, Obama segued into a roll call of names and implied that they, on the merit of tragic circumstances, deserved a vote to ensure stricter gun laws.
The list included slain Chicago teen Hadiya Pendleton’s parents, as well as victims of Sandy Hook. That was when Obama boldly declared, “Gabby Giffords deserves a vote!” With that, the camera panned to Gabby and Mark. Mark was clapping and standing beside him was Gabby, shaking her clasped hands to-and-fro like she was playing the cabasa in the school recital. It was a picture worth 1,000 words.
The power of seeing a husband supporting a wife suffering from a catastrophic brain injury was undeniable. After the heart-stirring visual, the sycophant media ordained Captain Kelly an “outspoken advocate for new gun control measures.”
Recently Mark Kelly was discovered purchasing an AR-15 military-style rifle at Diamondback Police Supply in Tucson. It was scandalous to hear that Gabby’s hubby had acquired a gun, especially since Kelly had just appeared at a Tucson anti-gun rally.
In truth, as a group, liberals are just another version of disgraced evangelical Christian pastor, Ted Haggard. Haggard, while having “drug-fueled homosexual trysts” with a male masseuse/escort, preached against the evils of gay marriage. On camera, the Kellys are preachers of strict gun-control; the problem is that when no one was looking, a bit like Pastor Ted, Minister Mark armed himself with the type of high-powered rifle he’s working hard to deny other Americans.
Clearly, Mark Kelly believes he can handle what common folk cannot, which is why what he and his green lapel ribbon decry in public he secretly embraces in private.
