Suzanna Gratia Hupp - Gun Control Video

A current legislature and a victim of a lunatic with a gun that shot up a restaurant, murdering her father and mother, speaks out and should be heard.

Here her testimony and who she says is to blame for her parents death!

It is a sound statement from someone that experienced the situation and looks at it from the rational perspective of hindsight. A stunning video and more from her can be seen on the web.

Just my 2 amendment... er, cents.

Not to in any way detract from what she says, because she is right, and she did have to endure watching her parents being killed, but ...

Do y'all know how OLD that video is? She is not a current legislator. She WAS a Texas state representative, from 1997 through 2007.

Her testimony was invaluable to the campaign to liberalize concealed carry laws in the 1990's. She's incredibly persuasive, and we could use her voice in times like this.

We could use people like her, and she is still very strong in advocating the 2nd amendment. How about another strong point of view.

From just one month ago..

And, it really should never detract from what she said. That is a timeless testimony that has as much to offer now as it did then.

I've been asking around here but no one seems to know; anyone know what she's been up to? I would LOVE to see her on TV or in newspapers.

Raising horses, I believe. By profession she is a chiropractor, but I have no idea of she currently practices in her field. (No pun intended.)
