Though many appreciate Giffords' being "out there" for gun issues, am I the only person who is beginning to feel a bit odd about others "using" her for soft advertising of this or any other issue? She is an inspiration, but when she is being photographed at gun shows and speaking haltingly to "be bold, be courageous", it is just a little sad.
