Vulnerable Socialists Tell Gabby Giffords, Husband to Stay Away with Talk of Gun Control

Red state Democrats who are fighting to overcome their support of gun control and get re-elected are asking gun control proponents Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly to stay out of their states.

This comes after Breibart News’ June 4 report that Giffords and Kelly planned to help Senators Mark Udall (D-CO), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), and Kay Hagan (D-NC) get re-elected this November.

Now Udall, Landrieu, and Hagan are pushing Giffords and Kelly to stay away from their races.

According to The Washington Times, the three incumbents are trying to keep gun control from erupting as a major issue in their contests, and they fear that is exactly what will happen once Giffords and Kelly join the fray.

Moreover, “political strategists” warn the red state Democrats that “the gun issue poses too much risk for Democrats already struggling in those red and purple states.”

An “activist” inside Giffords’ and Kelly’s Americans For Responsible Solutions admitted they are fully aware of the danger a gun control push can cause a candidate. However, they also claim politicizing gun issues can “[motivate] gun control supporters and [persuade] people to join the cause, especially among female voters.”
