Rep. Gabrielle Giffords partially responsible for her own shooting

by Ben Hoffman

Our gun laws are insane. Almost anybody, no matter how unstable, can go into a gun shop in Arizona and walk out with an AK-47. It’s a little more difficult if you have been convicted of a felony involving the use of a deadly weapon. In that case, you need to get someone to buy the gun for you. Just give the homeless guy down on the corner 20 bucks and have him buy the gun for you.

Giffords is a proponent of lax gun control. She objected to the Washington, D.C. gun ban and regards gun ownership as a constitutional right and an “Arizona tradition.” She owns a Glock handgun. Her views on gun control — or lack thereof — probably helped her get elected in a state where you can walk around in public with an assault weapon, as long as it’s not concealed. The gunman could have legally walked through the crowd with his Glock 9mm semi-automatic handgun fully exposed, before opening fire.

Who is responsible for the shooting yesterday?

Well, the gunman of course, who appeared to be quite delusional and possibly schizophrenic. Authorities are looking for an accomplice, who may have put him up to it.

The N.R.A. is largely responsible. Even the slightest perceived impingement on gun rights is met with violent opposition by the NRA. The gun lobby has far too much power in our government.

Right-wing pundits and people like Sarah Palin, as well as the politicians who do their best to promote violence and hatred are partially responsible for sending unstable people over the edge.

Fox “news” in general is responsible for propagating lies about Democrats and for inciting hatred and violence.

And of course, the simple-minded right-wingers who get their “facts” from Fox, Drudge Report, NewsMax, Newsbusters, RedState, and the rest of these lying bastards, are to blame for the shooting yesterday where at least 17 people were shot, six of them fatally.

The right-wing sheep are the overly emotional, often religious nuts who are the brownshirts in the internal war against our democracy. Many of them don’t even believe we have a democracy here and would support Charles Manson for president if he declared he’d ban abortion.

This country is spiraling down the toilet.

  1. Ok, I guess it’s unanimous. Giffords got what she deserved.

  2. The person that wrote this article lacks meaningful education. He/She probably blames spoons for people being fat.

  3. Few times in my life have I read such a poorly written piece of propaganda. Ben Hoffman is an intellectual ant.
