Gabrielle Giffords on a Senate in the Gun Lobby’s Grip

Gabriel Giffords writes a powerful New York Times op-ed:

I am asking every reasonable American to help me tell the truth about the cowardice these senators demonstrated. I am asking for mothers to stop these lawmakers at the grocery store and tell them: You’ve lost my vote. I am asking activists to unsubscribe from these senators’ e-mail lists and to stop giving them money. I’m asking citizens to go to their offices and say: You’ve disappointed me, and there will be consequences.

As she says, she has difficulty speaking. But I think her voice is loud and clear.
