As I write this, her USA Today op-ed, press releases, and website contain almost nothing of substance, save this excerpt from the op-ed.
Weapons designed for the battlefield have a home in our streets. Criminals and the mentally ill can easily purchase guns by avoiding background checks. Firearm accessories designed for killing at a high rate are legal and widely available... As a Western woman and a Persian Gulf War combat veteran who have exercised our Second Amendment rights, we don't want to take away your guns any more than we want to give up the two guns we have locked in a safe at home.

Carguychris Sentence-by-Sentence Translation Attempt, to be Taken With Many Grains of Salt:
  • We back a 94 AWB-style cosmetic features ban for new firearms.
  • We support background checks on private sales.
  • We support some sort of restriction on large magazines, but we don't want to specifically tell you what it is or how it would be enforced.
  • We DON'T support outright bans or seizures of existing firearms.
BTW here's the main website:

As I write this, the site contains a link for making donations, bios of Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly, and basically nothing else.
