You Won’t Believe Who This Gun Control Advocate Said is More Dangerous Than Refugees

Former Arizona Representative and Americans for Responsible Solutions co-founder Gabby Giffords is referencing President Trump’s executive order on immigration to drum up donations and highlight a more dangerous threat to citizens than refugees.

“Let’s put it in perspective,” Giffords wrote in an fundraising email for ARS. “There is a group that has proven itself to be far more deadly on American soil. A group that has killed someone once a week for the last two years: Toddlers.”

“That’s why we’re fighting to ensure guns are kept safe from kids,” Giffords concluded.

OBSERVATION: ARS doesn’t fight to ‘ensure guns are kept safe from kids’ like the firearms industry does, but they do fight to restrict parents’ and citizens’ right to keep and bear arms “for the children”.

“Rarely has such an assault been so disconnected from the threats we truly face,” Giffords said of Trump’s executive order temporarily banning certain refugees from entry into the United States. “The truth is this: In the history of accepting refugees in this country, none has committed a terrorist attack on our soil.”

It takes a special kind of stupid to think toddlers are more dangerous than an unvetted group of individuals that has been known to be a cover for terrorists. Just because it hasn’t happened here yet doesn’t mean we stop being cautious. Look at the November 2015 Paris attacks: it’s easy to say “only four” of the 198 refugees who arrived on the Greek island of Leros that day were terrorists. That may “only be” 2 percent, but that 2 percent carried out an attack that killed 130 people, 89 at the Bataclan theatre alone, and injured another 368 across the city in coordinated terrorist attacks. Mind you, they also carried out these attacks with guns in a country with incredibly strict gun laws.

  1. Guns do not need to be kept safe from kids. Kids that age need to be taught not to touch a gun. Teach kids firearm safety when they start to crawl and you won’t have small children curious or playing with guns.

  2. What about San Bernardino, Boston, etc.? I believe these were classified as “acts of terrorism”. By people considered immigrants.
    And, you know she is not capable of writing a statement like this. It’s her idiot husband that does these type of things! I can’t remember the facts, but a couple of years back, he tried to buy an AR-15 from a Tucson Gun store illegally. The owner turned him in, but nothing happened to him, because of his “celebrity” status. The gun store owner raffled that AR-15 off and gave the money to the NRA. Her husband said he was doing this to show how easy it was to get a gun illegally. (BS)
    By the way, I was born and raised in rural southern WI. I now reside in northeast AZ. I am a Patron Member of the NRA (soon to be a Benefactor Member).
    Thanks for standing up for people like me!

    • The acts of domestic terrorism you mentioned were perpetrated by immigrants or different classes of people, “technically” they weren’t refugees. But yes, I share your frustration.
