No shock that his Pet Woman would be trotted out with a distraction effort.
Kelly hired a comms worker, even after the idiot was on record as calling cops something along the lines of "miserable effing pigs"... but he didn't say "eff"ing.

Still employed, too...

Intel: Gifford’s launching latest self-hating gunowner group on 10/16/20

I was prepping an update, but this NRA article today covered what I was going to say.

https://www.nraila.org/articles/2020...on-t-like-guns


The most important part about why the Giffords affiliation is key for understanding what this group is about:

“Although the LCAV [now Giffords Law Center] failed in its opposition to the Heller decision, and Giffords, for now, acknowledges the ruling “clarified an individual’s right to have a handgun in the home for self-defense,” one would be hard-pressed to find any mention of actual support of the right to have firearms for self-defense anywhere on the Giffords website.

Instead, Giffords talks about “hunters, sport shooters, and collectors,” while promoting propaganda that is clearly opposed to the concept of using firearms for self-defense, like their anti-gun piece called “The ‘Good Guy with a Gun’ Myth.” This screed makes the ridiculous claim that “guns make states and people less safe—not more.” If that were actually true, then a more logical name for a group that calls itself “Gun Owners for Safety” would be “Former Gun Owners for Safety.” After all, if you believe “guns make…people less safe,” how could you possibly justify owning a gun, while claiming you are for safety?”

Even if the left were successful and cutting the head off of the NRA, replacing it with some sham Giffords front group, at least two heads would grow in its place (i.e. 2A Foundation, GOA, JPFO...).
