Former Democratic Representative for Arizona, Gabby Gifford, takes a new stance in her anti-gun movement. Gifford has spent most, if not all, of her political career pushing for more gun control. Even now, as Gifford is no longer Ariz. Rep., she continues her plight.
In the wake of the tragic shooting that took place in a Texas church, just days ago, Gabby exploits those victims by using their story to further her agenda. Gifford is taking aim at the Trump Administration.

Please don’t forget as you continue to read this article that it was the Air Force who failed to report the gunman’s prior violent record and that the man who stepped in to prevent further carnage was, in fact, an AR-15 wielding NRA member. If not for him, more lives would have been lost.
WASHINGTON ― The gun control group led by former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) is suing the Trump administration for failing to turn over documents that could show the National Rifle Association’s influence over President Donald Trump’s gun policies.
The Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence filed a lawsuit against the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
The gun safety group is accusing ATF of refusing to respond to multiple Freedom of Information Act requests for documents relating to communications between administration officials and the NRA.
Specifically, Giffords’ group filed FOIA requests seeking any records relating to Trump administration policies on concealed carry reciprocity, gun silencers, bump stocks and assault weapon exports; evidence that Donald Trump Jr. improperly lobbied on behalf of gun manufacturing companies; communications between gun lobbying groups and senior administration officials following last month’s mass shooting in Las Vegas; and attempts by the NRA to review bump stock regulations in coordination with ATF.
HuffPost reached out to ATF for comment late Thursday afternoon. The person who answered the phone said nobody was available via email or phone to give a comment until Friday morning.
