Chicago—Join Dr. Suzanna Gratia-Hupp downtown in a first ever Gun Rights Rally!
Chicago--Dr. Suzanna Gratia-Hupp is best remembered for her having lunch with her parents at a Luby’s cafeteria in Killeen, Texas when an armed madman crashed his pick-up truck right into the cafeteria and began random executions of innocent people on October 16, 1991.
Dr. Gratia-Hupp, a chiropractor and competitive handgun shooter regretfully obeyed the Texas law forbidding the carrying of concealed weapons. Gratia-Hupp’s gun was in her car instead of with her when she needed it most.
The result was the gunman was never challenged as he shot 43 people killing 23 including both of Gratia-Hupp’s parents. The carnage finally ended when the crazed killer, George Jo Hennard shot himself dead. None of us can imagine the horror of seeing our own parents savagely slaughtered.
Dr. Gratia-Hupp answered her call to duty and became an incredibly articulate speaker and powerful gun-rights advocate.
Soon Gratia-Hupp took on anti-gun-rights zealot, Senator Chuck Schumer during a gun control bill debate in a televised Senate committee hearing. Gratia-Hupp was nothing less than heroic in the way she shamed the pathetic politician for his position.
Dr. Gratia-Hupp went on to serve several terms in the Texas Legislature where she brought Right To Carry legislation all the way home and improved it considerably in latter sessions.
I’m proud to say I was able to met this hero at an NRA convention in 1993 and give her a hug. Now it’s your turn!
Tell your neighbors and friends to make this a peaceful event Midwest politicians will never forget.
This great lady can be seen in this video.
