The mean-spirited attitude of the Republican Party is to blame for violence. THE BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS because of the horrible atmosphere you’ve created.
More overly armed American freaks are sure to follow. Let the Mayhem begin. I hope the Republican Leadership and Fox News feel deep pain and remorse. Likely not, though.
Breaking News Alert: Reports: Ariz. Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords shot at Tucson public event
January 8, 2011 1:46:13 PM
Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot on Saturday morning while hosting an event outside of a Tucson grocery store, according to local news reports.
National Public Radio reported Saturday that Giffords, who in November narrowly won re-election to a third term, was hosting her first “Congress on Your Corner” event when a gunman ran up and began shooting.
According to a local news report, Giffords was shot in the head at point-blank range. She was taken to University Medical Center in Tucscon; her condition was not immediately known.
Last March, Giffords was one of ten House Democrats who were the subject of harassment over their support for the national health care overhaul. At the time, the front door of Giffords’ Tucson office had been shattered in an early morning incident.
