I will be writing a post on this as soon as we have all the facts. For now, here are the links where you can read up on this:
First off, our prayers and condolences go to all who were shot in this tragedy and their families. Mrs. Giffords is in critical condition, NOT DEAD. She is in surgery. Also killed, were six others including a child. 19 were shot last count. And all sane Americans are concerned and saddened by these events! Let us all pray for Representative Giffords, her family, the families of those who have died including Federal Judge John Roll, and for both the victims and families of all those fighting for their recovery and lives.
From all accounts, I understand Mrs. Giffords is a good person and she is married to a Navy Captain who is a Navy Pilot and a NASA astronaut. She believes in locking down our borders (a survival trait in AZ) and reducing our debt. She supports health care which I do not. She is a blue dog Democrat who was once Republican. And Representative Giffords is also a strong second amendment, pro-gun advocate as well as a gun owner. Congresswoman Giffords is also a strong advocate of securing our borders and that it is the responsibility of the Federal government.
“Politics don’t matter here. What matters is that some nut or someone with a political agenda shot all these people. The shooter was in his late teens or early twenties. I have never in my life seen the hate and vitriol in comments out there from BOTH sides that I have seen today. What is wrong with all of you? Palin had nothing to do with this, neither did Jan Brewer. The right and guns should not automatically be blamed. Neither should the left be lynched.” THM at the Noisy Room
“Let us remember that every time there is an incident using a gun the anti-second amendment crazies rise to cease the moment for their cause, even though we all know that from study after study that areas with strict control legislation in place have higher incidents of violence and crimes in general. We have also heard that the shooter probably used an automatic weapon which is illegal in Arizona and as in most places, proving that criminals will always get and have guns, no matter what the law. Please pray for the victims and do your best not to become a psychological victim of the anti-freedom left.” Ask Marion
