She beat the medical odds and she showed that gun-wielding nuts don´t have the final word. This isn't Hollywood, this is real life. Good for Gabriel!!

I mean, that's great an all and I agree with her vote... but should a person with a very serious brain injury be casting votes in congress?

Other than being shot in the head, what exactly is she famous for?

There were other victims that day. Can we move on now?
