Giffords, Kelly Take Gun Control To The States

posted on March 31, 2016

Former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, are bringing their national gun-control campaign to Virginia. Tuesday, the founders of so-called Americans for Responsible Solutions announced the formation of the Virginia Coalition for Common Sense—a state-level effort designed to push anti-gun measures that, ironically, lack any hint of common sense. 

Giffords and Kelly have launched similar coalitions in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Oregon and Delaware. These groups are comprised of gun-control advocates from law enforcement and the faith, domestic violence prevention and mental health communities.

In Virginia, Giffords and Kelly are pushing a bill mandating “universal” background checks, one that former prosecutor Del. C. Todd Gilbert says won’t deter crime. “People who don’t follow the law anyway find a way to break new ones,” he noted.

But that type of common-sense rationale is apparently lost on Giffords. Instead, she’s busy trying to drum up support for bills that will do nothing but infringe upon freedoms of the law-abiding.
