Excuse me, but what’s the point of this stunt? It’s quite clear she cannot properly handle the weapon she has and is quite unsteady once she fires off a round. And conveniently she has and ABC News camera along for this.
Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords fired a gun Monday for the first time since she was shot in the head by a crazed gunman more than two years ago, it was reported Monday.
Giffords and her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, visited a shooting range in Las Vegas during the first leg of a whistle-stop tour to push a stalled legislative effort to expand background checks for gun purchases.
The still-recovering ex-lawmaker and her husband are longtime gun owners who keep firearms for recreational use. But Giffords and Kelly have become gun-control leaders since the January 2011 rampage at a political event in Tucson that wounded the Democrat and 12 others and killed six.
Giffords, wearing a green sweater and glasses, along with a brace on one of her arms, fired a black handgun as her husband looked on.
Even supporters aren’t buying this shtick.
