The shameless exploiting of the Gabrielle Giffords tragedy

It didn’t take long for the Left to try to take advantage of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting to try to twist it into an excuse to take away more of our liberties. It’s absolutely despicable. Conservatives, don’t let them get … Continue reading
