Former US Representative Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly have claimed to be gun rights supporters, and yet everything their organization, the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence spends all of their effort and money pushing more gun control instead of protecting the gun rights they claim to support.
In their latest anti-gun move, Giffords’ group is filing a lawsuit against the Trump Administration. They claim that the Trump Administration’s pro-gun talking points are directly coming from gun lobbyists, especially the official responses to the latest mass shootings like the one in Las Vegas. In the lawsuit, they are asking for the release of all communications between the Trump administration and the gun lobby groups operating in Washington DC.
The anti-gun violence group headed by former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is taking the Trump administration to court, alleging the administration’s official talking points are coming from gun lobbyists.
The lawsuit filed Thursday by the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence claimed the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives did not turn over copies of communications between ATF officials and gun lobbyists made in the days after the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas.
“The policy choices made by the Trump administration, as well as its public response to prominent instances of gun violence, mirrors closely, if not exactly, the views and communications strategies preferred and employed by the Washington gun lobby,” according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia…
It’s not illegal to rely or respond to lobbyists on many topics. I’m certain that Barack Obama continually used statements he received from anti-gun lobbyists, but no one sued his administration over it. Democrats have gotten lawsuit happy and are using lawsuits at every opportunity to do whatever they can to stop President Trump and Republicans.
