Gabby Giffords Falsely Says Law-Abiding Gun Owners Are Dangerous To Law Enforcement

posted on May 18, 2017

In a rambling, lie-filled op-ed dishonestly presented as news, The Washington Post on Tuesday proved that gun-ban advocate and former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords doesn’t understand anything about law-abiding armed citizens.

In the op-ed, Giffords spoke out strongly against a national Right-to Carry reciprocity measure, which would enable law-abiding citizens who can legally carry a firearm in their own state to not become unintentional felons simply by crossing a state line. Yet Giffords tries to make the measure sound like something sinister, saying of reciprocity, “It is clear that guns in dangerous hands make law enforcement officers more vulnerable.”

In truth, Ms. Giffords, Americans who are licensed to carry concealed firearms in their home states throughout the nation are among the most law-abiding of all Americans. (In fact, according to data provided by Florida and Texas, concealed carriers are between six and 10 times less likely to commit a crime than are police officers—who, in turn, are more law-abiding than the general population). Any statement otherwise is nothing more than a lie told by those who would, if given a change, restrict the Second Amendment into oblivion.
