Rep. DebraLee Hovey: Shallow end of the manners gene pool

State Rep. DebraLee Hovey, R-Newtown, who last week on her Facebook page called on shooting victim Gabrielle Giffords to “stay out of my towns,” issued an apology Monday.

“The remarks I made regarding Congresswoman Gifford’s visit were insensitive and if I offended anyone I truly apologize,” Hovey said in a statement issued by her office, referring to Giffords’ visit Friday to Newtown.

“My comments were meant to be protective of the privacy of the families and our community as we work to move on, and were in no way intended as an insult to Congresswoman Giffords personally. Our community has struggled greatly through this tragedy, and we are all very sensitive to the potential for this event to be exploited for political purposes. This is what I wish to avoid,” Hovey said in her statement.

Former Democratic Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, went to Newtown, Connecticut  met privately with several government officials  before meeting  with some of the families of the 20 children and six teachers killed in a massacre by lone gunman, Adam Lanza, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School last month.  Giffords and Kelly have been increasingly involved in  lobbying for stricter gun laws and improved access to mental health treatment

Archie had the answer 40 years ago….

Archie Bunker had the answer 40 years ago. He doesn’t sound much different that Wayne Lapierre did the other day other than LaPierre used better grammar.

I find these discussions rather incredible. I wish one “enthusiast” would explain to me how I am supposed to know that THEY are sane and someone like Cho is not sane. The ranting and raving just isn’t passing the old sanity test in my eyes. The weapons capable of multiple kills in a matter of seconds have to be removed from our every day life.

Additionally, we can’t deport everyone who says something we don’t like. Deportation isn’t the answer to every problem.

Piers Morgan interviews Alex Jones….sorta

Alex Jones rants on like a crazy man. Rarely have I seen a person make such an ass of himself.

Alex Jones argues using the same old tired rhetoric. His hysteria makes me wonder if he shouldn’t be the poster child for someone who shouldn’t be allowed to have a gun.

Alex Jones must believe in the shot gun method of debate. Fire in all directions and see what you hit.

Gun enthusiasts and hobbyists, is this man who you want representing your cause? He is frightening.

(Alex Jones is also a truther.)
