http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=23518 A tale of tragic irony © 2001 WorldNetDaily.com Barbara Graham was sentenced to 10 years to life for shooting and paralyzing an innocent 23-year-old man she blamed for killing her 19-year-old son. That's a triple tragedy, for Graham is a 49-year-old mother who has now been removed from her other children. It's also ironic beyond words because Barbara Graham is an active member of a Maryland group that helped organize the Million Mom March against firearms last year in Washington. Let me repeat that: Barbara Graham used a gun to paralyze an innocent man, is pleading for leniency from the courts for her actions, and she is an activist involved in demanding that firearm possession be more severely restricted in this country. To top it off, when she was arrested in the shooting case, police found two guns at her bedside. Graham had supporters throughout her trial   leaders of the Million Moms group. Even though she owned guns and used one to shoot an innocent man, she is a heroine, in an odd sort of way, to a group that seeks more government controls on firearms, more limits on gun possession, maybe even an outright ban on them. Hello? Earth to the Million Moms   why does this not compute? By the way, Graham, who sometimes uses other names   like Lipscomb and Martin   did not shoot Kikko Smith in a fit of rage or on instinct. She is convicted of plotting an ambush of him along with a co-defendant, Erskine Moorer, who has already been sentenced to 15 years to life in the case. Meanwhile, a trial has been set for Daniel William Jackson Jr., the accused shooter of Graham's son. I raise all this with you today because I think it symbolizes the total disconnect from reality that infects the minds of those who want to seize my guns and your guns but see no problem possessing and using guns themselves. Clearly, if anyone in this country should be denied the right to own a gun, it's someone like Graham. Yet, she is one of the organizers of the anti-gun movement. It's incredible. Yet it's a story that has hardly been told   a factoid that is probably too discomfiting to warrant big play in the pro-government, anti-freedom, anti-Second Amendment big media...... more at link
