Observations on last night’s speech.

So, on NPR this morning, it was observed that the most emotional part of last night’s State of the Union address was the president saying that victims of people with guns “deserve a vote.”

You know what? I agree. It was. And that is precisely why it should be ignored. This might make me sound callous, but the fact that you suffered a personal tragedy doesn’t mean you “deserve a vote” on denying people rights, especially considering they didn’t play any role in it. I don’t know about you, but those people letting themselves be exploited by shameless politicians — or, in the case of Gabrielle Giffords, exploiting her own personal tragedy — makes me a good bit less sympathetic to their grief. It’s not the fault of the gun owners of America who weren’t involved in those tragedies that their loved ones aren’t here anymore, and to pin the blame on them is just..well, I don’t have the words for it.

    Bet they made sure that there were no gun owners there.

    Judging by the number of dead people voting in past elections, I believe many victims of gun crime have voted. Gary Griffin

    Giffords is not capable of expressing “her own opinion”. The brain damage she suffered has reduced her capacity for independent action. She is being used as a pull toy by her husband. She is the replacement for Jim Brady. I don’t fault her, but her husband is scum. He’s using her disability to line his own pockets. Look for the first tax return from that “foundation” and you will find he or she gets a 6 figure salary funded by some Soros front. I signed up on their website and got my first “message” today. Strangely it did not ask for money. I wonder why?
