As Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly were introduced at a gun show in upstate New York over the weekend, the sound of light applause was interrupted with boos.
It appears that even after making it clear they plan to be the anti-NRA in 2014, Giffords and her husband wanted to attend a gun show to continue to project the image that they are average American gun owners like the rest of us.
Gun show attendees did not seem to buy it.
The Associated Press reported the boos, and said there were also persons who picketed the appearance of Giffords and her husband by holding signs emblazoned with a swastika that read, “Gun control made the Holocaust possible.”
One of the persons picketing said, “I believe this is a publicity stunt for Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords. They say they’re Second Amendment supporters, I don’t believe they are.”
