Giffords on cover of TIME in gun-regulation story
Quote:Time Magazine put former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on its new cover and named her one of “The Gunfighters” with Vice President Joe Biden and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “Can a billionaire, a Vice President and a shooting survivor stop the violence?” the cover asks.

Biden helped President Barack Obama develop the gun control measures announced Wednesday, and Bloomberg has been vocal in his desire to reduce gun violence.

Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, met with Bloomberg earlier this month in New York to talk about the issue and later announced they were forming a political action committee to counter the lobbying done by gun makers.

Time said its cover story would examine attempts to build a coalition of gun control supporters strong enough to compete with the National Rifle Association and other gun rights organizations.

RE: Giffords on cover of TIME in gun-regulation story
Nice cover and it represents today's heroes in the battle over gun safety and gun violence. But their are so many other heroes that Time couldn't really print a cover big enough.

Sarah and Jim Brady.
President Ronald Reagan
The Joyce Foundation (Beatrice Joyce Kean)
ACORN
Children's Defense Fund
Colin Goddard and other victims of the Virginia Tech. shooting.

These are just a few of the people of this country that have tried to bring sanity to our gun culture and how we regulate access to and safe use of guns in America.

Thanks to all of them.
