Washington DC - -(  Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly are calling on Congress to take “immediate action” and pass gun control to protect women in the wake of Elliot Rodger’s heinous attacks in Santa Barbara.

( Editors Note: Still no call for Car or Knife Control? )

According to Politico, Giffords and Kelly sent a letter to Congress via email in which Kelly wrote:

These mass shooting are too often followed by stories about the perpetrator’s history of severe mental illness. Thankfully taking action on mental health and protecting women from gun violence are issues Democrats and Republicans can agree on – despite the filibuster of expanded background checks last year.

The letter also said, “Congress must stop hiding behind the excuse of politics and take up this issue to ensure the dangerously mentally ill don’t have easy access to guns and to protect women from gun death and intimidation.”

During his May 23 2014 attacks in Santa Barbara Elliot Rodger killed two women and four men. Using a variety of common tools including knives, guns and his car.

      With all these anti-gun lobbyists coming out of the woodwork I imagine the pay must be really, really good.
