Goodbye Gabby


Today was the final day for Gabby Giffords in congressional office. She resigned, but Debbie Wasserman Schultz said it wouldn’t be the final time that you and I see Ms. Giffords in office. I honestly hope to see this strong and wonderful woman in office again, hopefully soon.

With Ms. Giffords resigning for obvious reasons certain things have also been brought up. Certain things like gun control laws. You’d think with some one like Ms. Giffords being attacked the way she was, there’d be more gun control laws. On the contrary, there are actually less gun control laws in certain states and even in Arizona than there were before the Tuscon shooting. One of the laws that is new to certain states in the union is that convicted felons can now own guns. Yea, the people who were convicted of crimes can own a gun but, those same people can’t vote.

Both things seem a little backwards to me. Gun laws should have immediately become more strict, just for a little while, not less strict. And why would some one rather have a gun than have the right to vote. To me my right to vote is significantly more important than my right to own a gun. Yes guns, protect me from immediate danger but my right to vote protects my future and present. My right to vote also protects me from idiots who want to create dumb laws.

It seems as a country we’re lacking the intelligence, common sense, and care for one another that used to be the reason people came to America. Too often people are settling for the immediate fix than the long term solution. People would rather own guns than have the right to vote. I remember reading in text books that voting used to be a luxury afforded to certain people and how people fought and in some cases were bombarded with billy clubs and tear gas just to receive the right to vote. And today you have  people more concerned about owning a gun than being disenfranchised. It just doesn’t make sense.

Again I would like to wish Ms. Giffords and her husband all the best.
