Gabby Giffords

Yoooo whats with this trend?  Giffords now has FOUR military generals on video talking about how bad guns are:

When the initial General Michael Hayden video went up last month, I didn’t really think much of it besides the fact I thought it was kind of an odd partnership / endorsement.  I’d like to say I was surprised, but the country has a rich history of rich people not giving a shit about things that affect a large portion of the regular population.  When not one more… but THREE more videos with Generals went up I was pretty shocked.  Are these rich dudes hanging out at the same fundraisers that Gabby Giffords and her husband are or something?  Wait until General _______ is lost in the sauce then approach him about doing a video for the chan?  Seems like the strategy worked 📝.

At least these videos don’t have Gabby in them.  I have such a wide range of emotions I don’t normally like to feel when I see her struggle through a video.

Beep boop beep 🤖 I’m Gabby Giffords:

1:04 – “Last year alone, 36,000 Americans, died from gun violence” -Mark Kelly.  W-R-O-N-G.  Do we really have to go over this shit every time?  It’s truly exhausting when they try and act like that figure is ALL murders, and not mainly suicides (normally over half are suicides), accidental/negligent gun deaths etc..

Here is the official CDC (center for disease control) final data for 2014 showing 33,594 firearm deaths.  BUT this is what that number consists of:

Firearm—In 2014, 33,594 persons died from firearm injuries in the United States (Tables 18 and 19), accounting for 16.8% of all injury deaths in that year. The age-adjusted death rate from firearm injuries (all intents) did not change significantly in 2014 from 2013. The two major component causes of firearm injury deaths in 2014 were suicide (63.7%) and homicide (32.8%). The age-adjusted death rate for firearm homicide decreased 2.8%, from 3.6 in 2013 to 3.5 in 2014. The rate for firearm suicide did not change.

I don’t know why all anti-gun groups do this… it’s like the honest answer of people dead due to actual murders just isn’t impressive enough for them.  Take into account that even that number includes a lot of gang violence, where criminals are killing one another.  I can’t wait until one day where the data is so beautifully collected that I can filter out the number of criminals who were murdered and so on.

Why is General Stanley McChrystal in on this?  Some sort of elitist attitude at work here?

1:12 – “Gabby and I are both gun owners” – Holy shit that was so patronizing… and like he’s talking to a 3 year old.  Oh they “support second amendment rights BUT”… then cue the talk about criminals getting firearms.

1:26 – Oh we “knowingly tolerate” criminals buying guns legally?  Since when?

1:45 – At this point in the video, I realized that Gabby is VERY good at nodding.

I really feel terrible that Gabby Giffords was shot.  It should have never happened.  I also feel really terrible that’s she’s being paraded around like this.

Oh man the end of the video is difficult to watch 😬.

She’s here on earth still bothering us gun control nonsense even though she has the space plug (her husband is Astronaut Mark Kelly):

Here’s a link to the actual tweet in case you want to engage her.  There are a few more tweets after it which you can scope out on her timeline, also dealing with the hearing protection act.

I’m really surprised Mark doesn’t step in and be like “LOG THE FUCK OFF GABBY”.  The man is an astronaut.  I remember looking into being an astronaut like once a long time ago you have to be VERY smart.  You know what though, Mark might have tried.  If NASA won’t let him put Gabby into a low earth orbit, maybe Elon Musk will help a brotha out with a coupon once SpaceX is up and running.  I’ve got five on it.
