Would You Be "Interested" in Hearing Jan Brewer's Response to Mark Kelly?

Last week, we reprinted the entire statement prepared by Mark Kelly, husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, which he read at the sentencing of Tucson shooter Jared Loughner.

To the statement, which included a pointed remark about Governor Jan Brewer's comments after the shooting, Brewer's spokesman said the governor "isn't interested in engaging in politics."

Here's the part of Kelly's remarks -- which he's directing at Loughner -- where he references Brewer:

In this state we have elected officials so feckless in their leadership that they would say, as in the case of Governor Jan Brewer, "I don't think it has anything to do with the size of the magazine or the caliber of the gun." She went on and said, "Even if the shooter's weapon had held fewer bullets, he'd have another gun, maybe. He could have three guns in his pocket" - she said this just one week after a high capacity magazine allowed you to kill six and wound 19 others, before being wrestled to the ground while attempting to reload. Or a state legislature that thought it appropriate to busy itself naming an official Arizona state gun just weeks after this tragedy occurred, instead of doing the work it was elected to do: encourage economic growth, help our returning veterans and fix our education system.

Does this seem like something Brewer ought to respond to, or is she doing the right thing by keeping her mouth closed on this one?

I don't care either way. I just bought an extension tube for one of my shotguns though, increasing the capacity by 2 shells. I'd have bought a larger tube if I could have, but with an 18.5" barrel, it's all I could do.

she should just keep quiet, she already got what she wanted, they re-elected Obama. we all saw her at the RNC saying she wanted him re-elected, that way we could get this immigration straightened out

I want to hear what she has to say, only because it will be the center of weekly comic shows for the next month...lol her comments are the gifts that keep on giving.


The ONLY thing GED Jan is interested in is where the next glass of Johnnie Walker Blue Label comes from.


Hey, quit criticizing Stinky Finger Jan. All she does is reflect the twisted mentality of the majority of Arizona voters.

i dont speak "Drunkeneese" so i dont know if i want to hear her reply. i would however be interested to hear from her office why 1 month after the shooting, she pushed a bill to restore gun rights to mentally ill people. she isnt trying to prevent this from recurring, she's enabling situations like this. dont forget, this is the same woman that said you can buy, sell, and set off fireworks in the biggest fire hazard state. we cant have fires in our firepits or fireplaces year round, but we can buy and set off incindiary devises year round
