Gunshot Survivor Gabrielle Giffords Visiting Sandy Hook Families

| Filed under: R.I.P.InspirationSad Sad

Former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is planning on privately visiting those families who lost loved ones during the unspeakably horrific Sandy Hook Elementary shootings that took place on Dec 14th.

Gabrielle is no stranger to terrible gun-inflicted violence, as she survived a gunshot wound to the head when a man opened fire in a Tucson shopping center two years ago.

Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly recently spoke out in favor of gun control, with Mike stating:

"As we mourn, we must sound a call for our leaders to stand up and do what is right.

This time our response must consist of more than regret, sorrow, and condolence The children of Sandy Hook Elementary School and all victims of gun violence deserve leaders who have the courage to participate in a meaningful discussion about our gun laws – and how they can be reformed and better enforced to prevent gun violence and death in America. This can no longer wait."

Gabrielle will undoubtedly offer hope and support to those mourning in Newtown, CT, as she more than most can relate to the anger, pain, and helplessness we imagine they must be feeling.

We only hope that all those affected by this unfathomable tragedy find peace.

    Gabby Giffords is a true hero. Imagine how much physical and emotional strength it will take for her to visit with the families who are victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. I hope her display of strength will give the families the strength to carry on.

    Re: TheRelationshipInsider – Oh shut up, you dumbass liberal cretin. This is about her wanting attention; it's not about others, it's about HER. She has no job, and she has nothing else to do, nor is the press focused on her anymore. This is an incredibly SELFISH thing to do … and it's not heroic to not be killed and to recover. It's the proper order of things. Gabby Giffords is a recovering gunshot victim, not a hero. You are a perfect example of what's wrong with society today; you gorge yourself on the liberal media's messages, which disarm you intellectually. You are incapable of thinking for yourself and seeing life for what it truly is because you're one of the idiot following sheep. PLEASE DO NOT REPRODUCE. We have enough defectives on the planet.

    When will people realize that the root of the matter isn't gun control….it's mental health. You can take matches and lighters away from a pyromaniac, and that person is STILL a pyromaniac. You can take guns away from these mentally ill criminals….and they are STILL mentally ill criminals. Timothy McVeigh was able to murder adults and children alike without a single bullet. The shooter in Webster, NY just had someone else purchase the firearms for him. Gun control is like putting a bandaid on a severed artery. I'm not saying some reform isn't necessary, but it truly isn't the core issue in these horrific shootings. Sidenote: I'm glad to see Gabrielle doing so well after her own unimaginable incident, I think it's awesome that she's visiting these families! Any inspiration or hope she can give is desperately needed I'm sure.

    Remember, she always supported gun rights until she was be one being shot. That sounds very hypocritcal. Also gun control is not about GUNS, its about CONTROL.

    You are an idiot boston61. I am a republican and gun owner and I have never killed anyone. If they do ban guns, I guess I will have to give my guns up…as soon as I run out off ammo.

    Re: TheRelationshipInsider – she got shot in the head what is so heroic about that? this is about gun-control. its about denying Americans their second amendment rights while the obama administration arms mexican drug cartels with high powered weapons. gabby giffords is going to be their poster child.

    I'm proud of her recovery and I sympathize with her plight, but I don't get why she is going there. What is she going to relate to? Being shot?

    I used to be against gun control but I'm starting to change my mind. After seeing videos of the victims like the one chunkylover1001 posted on You tube, I'm starting to favor reasonable and uniform gun control laws.
