Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, a Democrat was always favorable toward gun ownership and the Second Amendment.
There’s little doubt if a person get’s shot in the head, they may change their opinion on gun ownership.
In a show absolute hypocrisy among liberal democrats, while she was going anti-gun her husband Mark, a former astronaut was busy buying an AR-15, and a 1911 semi-automatic pistol presumably for “Home protection.”
Giffords is a liberal Democrat who was herself critically injured in a gun attack by a crazed assailant. She and her husband have since devoted themselves to the issue of gun control.
McSally’s Democratic opponent in the race, Ron Barber, who worked for Gifford, was also injured in the attack, and two people were killed. Barber has been outspokenly in favor of gun control. McSally ran solidly in support of Second Amendment rights.
The 2nd District, based in Tucson, is considered a prize for each party, and Republicans have been working hard to win it for several years. Mitt Romney carried Arizona in 2012.
McSally won the seat by 167 votes, with six votes added after the recount, according to election officials. With McSally’s victory, the GOP gained a net of 13 seats in the midterm elections, giving them a history majority.

Barber said in his concession statement:
Today I congratulated Martha McSally on her victory, and wished her well in serving Southern Arizonans. This result is not the one we hoped for, but we take solace in having spoken out loud and clear for the principle that every legal vote should be counted.
McSally’s statement said:
There’s no getting around that this was an incredibly close and hard-fought race. After what’s been a long campaign season, it’s time to come together and heal our community. That’s why my focus will be on what unites us, not what divides us, such as providing better economic opportunity for our families and ensuring our country and community are kept safe.
