Washington DC – -(  Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly are collaborating on a book titled Enough: Our Fight to Keep America Safe from Gun Violence, scheduled to be released in June.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, the book is an outgrowth of Giffords' “[chastisement of] senators who blocked gun legislation that included expanded background checks and a ban on assault weapons.”

Kelly described the purpose of the book: “As Second Amendment supporters and gun owners ourselves, we hope our book rouses the long-overdue conversation our country needs to make responsible changes to our gun laws so that no more precious lives are lost.”

It has previously reported how the gunman who attacked Giffords in 2011, the gunman who opened fire in an Aurora, CO theater, the employee who killed co-workers at the D.C. Naval Yard, the man who murdered a TSA officer at LAX, the student who killed one other and then himself with a shotgun at Arapahoe High School, and the gunman who killed two people before killing himself with a shotgun at a mall in Columbia all had one thing in common: they passed the very background checks Giffords and Kelly claim will “keep America safe from gun violence.”

    1. Has anyone looked at the political affiliations of the shooters in the crimes listed inthe article?? I’ll bet even money they are all liberal Democrats. All of the arguments for gun control are based on “FEELINGS”. They always omit the real hard truth, guns in the hands of citizens stop crime and save lives over 2000 times a day (FBI stats).

    2. These people are the most hypocritical two I have ever had the privilege to be disgusted with. They preach all this pro-gun control, but when no one is looking, they are out at the range, firing their own guns, like they are specially privileged royalty that are above the law. All Mark is interested in is any money he can make from this tragedy. I do not think Ms. Gifford really believes any of the crap that he pumps out. If they think it was some legal gun owner that shot her, then go ahead with your game, but if he was a nut that should never have had a gun, the go after the criminals. I have a little respect for people that really believe the ignorance they spew, because they can learn the reality of their lack of education, but a hypocrite can never change unless they admit to lying. They know the truth, but will never admit it to anyone. Please, Gabby, get real. Stop letting Mark push you into being a living lie and put your power into the real things dealing with guns and admit that the more people that have legal rights to carry a gun can and does reduce crime, many times over. Just look at the news over the past few weeks, more mass killings STOPPED before the even got started with armed citizens, before the police could even be called.

    3. I’m sorry that Mrs. Giffords got shot. I can’t begin to let her know how sorry I am for her. If this kind of thing wants to be stopped, then there’s only one way to stop it. Law enforcement has to buy some short horses, and find some tall trees. Hang these Bastards that commit murder or attempt murder on innocent people. Don’t put them in jail for 30 years and let the people of the state take care of them. That son of a bitch killed people, so hang him. You start hanging these bastards, and you’ll start stopping this kind of thing ! People don’t understand these days, you fight fire with fire. Period.

    4. Why don’t they try to put a stop to several anti-gun groups sending guns & ammo to the gang members in several large cities? This is being done for one reason and that is to keep the gun crime high so they can then push for gun control. So, why don’t they do something about that?

    5. If the two of you really want to do something go after the criminals that are causing so much harm and damage. If you look at all the gangs that are out there you will see what the real problem is, here’s a clue, you keep going after the law abiding but you do nothing about the criminals like the gangs and thugs like that. Criminals do NOT buy the guns they use at the gun shop, they go to the local ally way to get what they want. Put a stop to the criminal activity and then talk to the people to see what they want. Until the government stomps down on the criminals then LEAVE our guns alone….

    6. It’s a shame this pretty woman had to be shot, it truthfully is. That said, it was not a law abiding legal gun owner that shot her. why should WE have to suffer for her misfortune? Please do something to get the illegal guns out of the hands of the criminals, THEN you will have accomplished a great deal!

    7. Mr. Kelly: Thank you for your military service to this soon-to-be once Great Nation that you are helping to destroy.

      Gabby: My most sincere sympathies regarding the criminal attack that you suffered. May you have a total and complete recovery.

      That being said, you 2 make me sick! Not one of the “gun control” laws you say you want will, or would have, done one damned thing to prevent the attack upon you by Loughner. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, if the sheriff, who was/is POLITICALLY CONNECTED to Loughner’s parents, WOULD HAVE DONE HIS JOB, you might not have been shot. It is a shame you weren’t able to duck soon enough, but LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS DID NOT SHOOT YOU. Why do you demand that we be punished and have our Rights limited because of this.

      As to your “support for the 2nd Amendment”, please spare us this horse dung.

      1. All this is pure bull dung. Now I grew up in this country and served my country well and now they are caring for me through the VA. I am proud of my country and will ever stand true to it. Now, my thoughts on this whole idea that any kind of control on our gun rights is going to do anything to change any one thing is pure lies. The only thing that will stop gun violence is more people (good people ) with guns. The bad guys will always have their guns, but when they think that we good guys might have guns also, they will be less inclined to use their gun on anyone. Why ? Because, most have never had the training we have and most of us have also have training in how to act in a serious situation, thus know how to control our own nerves. They know who will win in a shoot-out, and I plan to go home every night to my wife and kids. I say instead of fewer guns out there, how about 10 times more and watch crime drop to next to nothing. It will not take long to weed out the thugs and leave the good guys standing.

    8. When you’re an unemployed astronaut, because Obama shut down NASA, you gotta do something to earn a living. Like Darth Vader, he’s gone to the “Dark Side”. LOL

    9. This is just another example of the left exploiting the victim of a violent crime to further their anti-gun agenda. The enhanced registration they want can’t be done without registering every gun and every gun owner in the country. And history has shown time and time again that the next step would be confiscation from law abiding gun owners, leaving criminals and the government the only armed entities in our society.

      1. This is the way all great tyrannies start out. the powers that be decide that the only people that deserve to have guns, especially the carrying kind, are they, the powers that be , never you and me. The only reason for the 2nd Amendment, is to over throw the gov’t. if it ever becomes to powerful o follow the Constitution to the “letter” of the law. Then we will have the weapons to take the gov’t from the powers that be and place them where they belong. This is a great plan, but has been changed so much that it no longer matters or hardly matters to anyone. A few weeks back, I was having a discussion about the 2nd Amendment and when I told someone that the only reason for the 2nd Amendment was to protect the people from and over-bearing gov’t in the easiest way possible, but, when push comes to shove, we take it by force. Almost everyone laughed at my comments. What’s happened to our history and civics classes that not too long ago were taught in our High Schools ? Have the liberals become that strong that they just change history, ect. without even going to a school board meeting ? It has become a worrisome thing for anyone that loves this country and wants to maintain our personal rights for as long as this country stands.

    10. I am sorry she has hurt but Folks lets remember almost all these shooting were from young people and I will bet were all using in the young lives mind controlling substances. Hell! when my son started to go to public school he was not even there a month and we had to have a meeting with his teacher and nurse to find out they felt he needed to go on “Ritalin” to as they put it . Help him concentrate better. The Nurse opened a three ring binder to show us all the parent authorization to administrate the drug and the prescription of I would say 95% of all the student in that Damn school!! Bull Shit!! I pulled him out and sent his to private catholic school. Was averaging a 4.0 and went on to SDSU on a scholarship. My God we need to stop standing back watching all this insanity to remove our 2nd amendment rights. get the guy out of the W/H and including all the clowns that back him!

    11. Yeah. And Mark was at the gun range right after he spoke about gun control. Is he going to have to give his up too or is he and Gabby one of Obummers’ list of few who will not have to abide by the BS?
