In a way, it's sort of sad. Before her unfortunate run-in with a homicidal maniac, former Arizona Congresscritter Gabrielle Giffords decided that she needed to "toughen up" her image. As with so many of the more leftist bent, she decided to go with props over substance. What props, you might ask?
AR-15s. You know the same gun her husband Mark Kelly wants to see banned because ZOMG EVIL!
After the photos were extracted from the depths of her publicity records and publicized, she posted them on her Facebook page with an explanation apparently written by the Brady Bunch.
Like I said, sad.
