Heck Agrees with Radio Host that Gabby Giffords is a "Prop"

Jon Ralston reports that Rep. Joe Heck (R-NV) appeared to agree with right-wing talk show host Alan Stock when he said that Gabby Giffords, "who can't even clap her hands," is being used as "a prop" by gun control advocates.

Stock: "I found that to be nauseating and you know what else is nauseating too... putting Gabby Giffords up there...who can't even clap her hands... as a figure.. of somebody being.. having shot her. I think it's a shameful act putting her up there as a prop... I'm sorry. I really do."

Heck: "Yeah, no I agree. I think again in the cloud of emotion surrounding Connecticut those who are anti-gun want to use that to limit their Second Amendment rights."
