Giffords press conference? I don’t think so. What’s much more likely to happen is that Mark Kelly is going to tell us “Well Gabby thinks…”, or “What Gabby meant to say…”

I will write my senators, and tell them that I want the Second Amendment respected, and I want each of them to honor their oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Then I’ll ask them to craft and push a bill that outlaws the spouse of a shooting victim from exploiting his spouse’s pain to make money and keeping his creepy image constantly in front of the cameras. I really wish Mark Kelly would just go away forever.

Can someone please get back to me when Giffords makes an appearance somewhere without Mark Kelly? Until then, I’m going to do my best to tune all this out. Kelly makes me sick.
