Doing what liberals do well, conflating unrelated issues to drive an ideological point, former Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords used Saturday’s London Bridge terrorist attack to push a gun control agenda.
…and to show up President Donald Trump.
The president posted a series of tweets Sunday on the London attack, to include this observation: “Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!”
Giffords, who was shot and severely wounded in 2011 at a campaign rally, responded to Trump’s comment, fusing the U.K. terrorist attack with everyday criminal behavior.
And like any respectable Democrat, she makes it all about the children.
“Mr. President, every day we are having a gun debate because every day 90 people in our country die from gun violence. Many of them are kids,” Giffords tweeted.

The reaction on social media to Giffords barb gives hope that common sense-driven Americans still exist… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
I’ll be the people on London Bridge yesterday wished they had a gun handy during that attack.

When you outlaw guns only criminals will have them and law abiding citizens will not be able to defend themselves

.VERY FEW are kids, VAST majority of gun homicides are DRUG &GANG related–drugs that POUR over our wide-open southern border thanx to Dems!

Does anyone honestly think GUN CONTROL would keep guns out of the hands of criminals, SERIOUSLY! Not sold!

Gifford needs to direct her anger at the CRIMINALS who are committing gun crimes, NOT the responsible majority who aren’t. #2ADefenders
