The husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is speaking out against comments made by a SC congressman who pulled out his own loaded handgun at a meeting with constituents, and said he was "not going to be a Gabby Giffords".
Norman told the Post and Courier, however, that he pulled out the gun during a public meeting over breakfast at a Rock Hill diner to make the point that guns are only unsafe when they are in the hands of criminals.
Giffords, a Democrat, was shot and wounded outside a grocery store during a constituent gathering in 2011 in Tucson, Arizona. "I don't mind dying, but whoever shoots me better shoot well or I'm shooting back".

The demonstration, he said, was meant to prove to constituents that "guns don't shoot people, people shoot guns", according to the Post and Courier.
"Guns are not the problem", he said.
