Political positionEdit

Giffords is a former Republican and a Blue Dog Democrat. Still she supported Obamacare which will help many low and middle income Americans.

Gabrielle Giffords now supports tougher gun controls and with her husband founded the "Americans for Responsible Solutions", an organisation aiming at strengthening gun controls. [1]

Every day we will recruit a few more allies, talk to a few more elected officials, convince a few more voters, we can get tough and win elections. [2]


Tragically some Gun nut proved how much Gun controls are needed by shooting Gabrielle Giffords in the head. He caused Gabby Giffords lasting Brain demage and killed several other people including one child, Christina Taylor Green, the Arizona Legislature ensured that notorious Fred Phelps wouldn't picket Christina's funeral.

[6] In early August she returned to Congress and voted in the crucial debt limitation debate. [7] In January 2012 sadly Gabriell resigned from Congress and says she must work further on her recovery. [8] If only guns were harder to obtain in the USA this tragedy would have probably never have happened.
