Another day and another round of criticism from across the country. After Hovey’s rant was aired on MSNBC, people flooded the site to give the disgraceful State Rep a piece of their mind.

Gun control is a political issue. Anything that is said about it at any time is political. Nevertheless, this representative is an idiot. She is a bully trying to push around a woman who was the victim of gun violence following a number of insensitive politicians putting targets over her district and encouraging voters to consider exercising their “second amendment option” if elections did not turn out to suit them. Gabby Giffords iis no longer a U.S. Representative and does not have to comply with congressional protocol. Gabby Giffords has the right to travel to Connecticutt to offer whatever comfort she can to the victims and the survivors have the right to receive her or not. I am sure that Ms. Giffords will probably become a pro- gun control activist. That tends to happen when you survive being shot in the head by a gun toting stranger. Ms. Hovey exercised her First Amendment right and shot off her mouth. Now the voters should exercise their rights to vote and dump her.

Go suck on a Bushmaster, Hovey. Those towns aren’t yours, you @!$%#bag.

Sorry, it’s not HER town. What an idiotic thing to say. Seems six terms should be enough for this imbecile.
tompoe commented yesterday
Hovey’s comment should be enough reason for anyone to make their vote count by NOT voting for her ever again. What a smelly woman.
Rose, New York commented yesterday
There isn’t any excuse for this insensitivity toward the families of the Sandy Hook community and Ms. Giffford who is also a private citizen with rights. The Republicans senselessly continue to trend on our rights, our lives, our safety, our well being without an ounce of decency while defending the outdated ideals. There is never any reason nor need for assult weapons to be accessible to anyone other than the military and they know it!.. I am done with this stupidity as they continue to speak with God and Country on their side!

I love it when politicians accuse another politician of being political… and then the ignoramous Hovey says “if I offended anyone….. blah, blah, blah…” when she knows damn well what she said was offensive and STUPID !

As usual majority of politicians see everything through their narrow ideological prism of self-serving interest and that should not be an excuse for State Rep Hovey and others who don’t seem to know how humanity looks like or have any form of human experience beyond their ideology.
