Gun Lovers Mock Gabrielle Giffords As Ship Is Named After Her
This really puts pro-gun advocates in a good light. Not.
…former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was honored this week, the week of her birthday, by having a Navy ship named after her. Tomorrow, Dr. Jill Biden will break a bottle of sparkling wine on the USS Gabrielle Giffords, named in honor of the former congresswoman’s courage after she was shot in the head in 2011.
It’s a great honor, but of course, someone had to ruin it by going on Facebook. Namely, a bunch of guys who like guns. I use the word “guys” loosely because to say what they said, I don’t know if you can qualify as a person anymore.
One user commented, “…why her?…USS Forgot to Duck?”
Another user: “Does that mean CIC will only be partially functional?”
The “CIC”—combat information center—of a fighting ship is its nerve center, colloquially referred to as the ship’s “brain.”
See what they did there? Because Giffords suffered brain damage. Get it?
