New Jersey – -( How are you doing? That is a benign enough question to ask.

How are all you readers doing weathering the current COVID-19 worldwide pandemic?

One cannot tune into any form of media today without being bombarded with COVID everything. But really, take a second and think about your personal wellbeing. Perhaps you have been personally affected by COVID, by either having contracted this disease or maybe a loved one? Has someone you loved died from the china-flu? Have you lost your job or been financially impacted by what has transpired worldwide?

What’s with this line of questioning? Why bring this up now? Well, because right now, while the entire country and world at large are being negatively impacted by this disease, it’s important to call to your attention that the anti-freedom groups are continuing on full steam ahead to usurp your civil liberties.

Whether it was Mom’s Demand Action having gun stores shut down, or advocating for the reduction/reform of police while the country is on fire, there really has been no lack of “work” being done from those pushing the anti-gun agenda. Story after story about citizens’ rights being stripped all in the name of public safety during this very solid crisis can be read through numerous articles.

Again, what does that have to do with anything? Priorities. That is what. Priorities.

Don’t Forget Gun-Grabber Gabby’s Birthday

From documents, AmmoLand News acquired through an OPRA request, W161324 Zakiya Smith-Ellis Giffords Law Center Communications NJ Gov Murphy OPRA Request 7/24/2020, an interesting piece of correspondence came to Governor Phil Murphy’s office. This email came from Nico Bocour ([email protected]), The State Legislative Director from Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, and was sent to William Castner ([email protected]), the Advisor to Governor Phil Murphy on firearms, for the State of New Jersey, sent on May 29, 2020, right smack in the middle of a national crisis.

The subject? “Gabby’s 50th Birthday – request for a video message.”

In the email, Bocour puts a request out to Phil Murphy, being as chummy as they are, for the Governor to send a personalized video message to Gabby Giffords on her 50th Birthday Celebration/Tribute/FUNDRAISER.

You read that correctly, during a worldwide emergency pandemic, The Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence wanted the chief executive of the State of New Jersey to drop everything he was doing to throw together a virtual birthday card for the anti-freedom organization’s founder.

The incredibly detailed list of how to put together the message as well as content suggestions was laid out all in the included email, and you should really read it for yourself.

Giffords Nico Bocour Don’t Forget Gabbys Birthday Gov Murphy W161324 Redacted (1)

There you have it Mr. and Mrs. America. While we are all struggling financially, physically, and emotionally, the Giffords center is going on business as usual. Not only raising money to strip you of your freedoms but also pulling a chief executive from his leadership duties to send a feel-good, pat on the back, “warm remembrance”, message to Gabby.

How many other governors received similar messages? How many acquiesced? Just remember, that while we are struggling to survive, the Giffords center has made clear their priorities, raise funds to remove your rights.

If you want to reduce violence with guns, go for the criminals and leave us law abiding gun owners alone.


These people are criminals pure and simple! They are doing all they can to curtail our 2A rights if not flat out take all 2A rights away!!! I for one am getting too damn old to allow the Government to take my property! Im still young enough to be a huge pain in their ass when they come to try and illegally confiscate my guns. I will pray for all the officers involved for i hate ot have ot be the one to take one of their lives for just following orders,although these orders shouldnt be accepted to start with… Read more »


When are they going to arrest the Anti-Constitutional, Anti-American, Enemy Communists, within the United States?


There are international laws against putting your trash into orbit.


Ah, Happy B-day to The Village Idiot of Gun Control.


It is important to call things what the are. The movement is not about
combatting “gun violence” (an oxymoron since guns do not commit
violence, people do) it is about combatting gun OWNERSHIP. If you care
to surf the error-net you can find photos of Giffords and Kelley SHOOTING
GUNS. Worse than guns I hate hypocrites.


A search of the interweb will produce numerous photos of Gabby the Gun Grabber holding & firing MSR’s (AR-15’s) prior to her sainted “conversion”. As for her puppet master squeeze Mark Kelly, I’ve never trusted him, based soley on his appearance. Just something about a prematurely bald “All American Space Hero” with a perpetual smirk on his face. Call me shallow but I get the same feeling when I view a picture of Himmler or Goering. Just saying, 1st impressions are usually right…

A gun does not commit violence against anyone it’s the person who is operating it that is to blame but these die hard democrats won’t admit that fact they also won’t admit that the shootings that have happened against politicians were carried out by democrats or their followers.
Gifford’s shooter is a prime example.


A photo from the back would show Gabby’s husband, Mark Kelly, with his hand up her backside moving her mouth and aping his words from her brain damaged mouth. He’s running for Senator from Arizona and using and taking advantage of her for his personal benefit like Sarah Brady used Jim. It’s in the same category as “beating up a retard” and then bragging about it. Shameful.


GREAT! Two buttheads and no toilet paper.


I would send her a picture of my left hand showing the ok sign and my right hand with the middle finger extended only.
