    Default Gab Giffords sues Trump over NRA docs

    Gabby Giffords is suing the Trump administration over NRA documents

    The Trump administration is being sued by a gun control group founded by former Rep. Gabby Giffords for documents related to the National Rifle Association’s influence over the president’s gun views.

    The Arizona Democrat’s organization, the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for failing to comply with Freedom of Information Act requests to turn over the administration’s correspondence with the NRA, according to the Huffington Post.


    The organization was specifically looking for records concerning Trump administration policies on concealed carry reciprocity, gun silencers, bump stocks and assault weapon exports.

    Giffords’ group also hoped to find evidence of improper lobbying by Donald Trump Jr., President Trump’s eldest son, on behalf of gun manufacturing companies as well as contact between gun lobbying groups and senior administration officials after the Las Vegas mass shooting last month.

    The organization was seeking any proof that the NRA attempted to review bump stock regulations in coordination with the ATF.

    The lawsuit, obtained by the Huffington Post, accused the Trump administration of following the NRA in “lockstep” following recent shootings and sought evidence that pro-gun lobbyists had influenced the ATF in pursuing “dangerous policies and to oppose common sense gun-violence-prevention measures.”

    “The Trump administration appears willing to let the National Rifle Association dictate its federal gun safety policy, which includes remaining silent on how to stem our nation’s gun violence epidemic,” said Robyn Thomas, executive director of the Giffords Law Center.

    “Protecting the safety of Americans should be the top priority of any president. Unfortunately, gun lobby profits seem to be more important to President Trump.”

    Following the Las Vegas massacre, Giffords called on her former colleagues in Congress to take on the gun control issue as critics slammed her and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, for politicizing the mass shooting.

    “The nation is counting on you,” she said, raising her fist to Capitol Hill behind her.

    That woman is dumb as a rock. It's like she suffered brain trauma or something. Maybe she's not the best person to decide complex national policy.

    Remember when she sued Obama over SEIU's influence over health care?
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    “Protecting the safety of Americans should be the top priority of any president. Unfortunately, gun lobby profits seem to be more important to President Trump.”
    Are not the NRA, GOA, SAF, and other lobbying pro-gun groups all non-profit? Just one part of this that does not make sense.

    Also is it not common sense to go to subject matter experts to get advice when writing technically involved legislation? It happens all the time. How much of Feinstein's AWB was orginally written by some anti-gun lobbyist or group? The hypocrisy is staggering.

    Just claim executive privilege! It worked for the last butt munch in chief when he, the SoS liar, and the AG sloth* shipped guns to Mexico and killed Brian Terry while trying to push gun control.

    *the first AG to ever be held in contempt of congress.
    Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.

    Why are they not suing the AMA? The third leading cause of death in the US today is medical mistakes. It is nearly ten times the amount of deaths than are caused by firearms and it is preventable. Two hundred and fifty thousand people die from medical mistakes every year. The American Medical Association is directly responsible for these horrendous numbers. The AMA is nothing more than hired assassins trying to kill off it's patients. The only things that cause more death in the US than the AMA is cancer and heart disease.

    Some people just won't die, or even fade into the woodwork.
