    Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Shot In Arizona

    While being interviewed, a guy on CNN, just said "This was inevitiable, the right, and I'm speaking broadly, has been stoking the fires of hatred for a long time." That didn't take long for this to be blamed on conservatives/right wing ideology.

    Wow, now they are saying that "AZ is a gun happy state, it's almost a fetish, so that is surely to blame"

    This is probably going to be someone that had political motivation. But, you have to have some degree of mental illness to believe this is a means to an end.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Until we learn this loons motives, it's stupid to bring speculation into it.

    Let's pray for the families injured or killed.

    Let us also pray for the killer.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Terribly, terribly sad. I just don't get why anyone would do such an evil thing.

    Really, in AZ, you'd think it would be for other reasons?

    You should read the the NPR Comments, or hell my wife made the mistake of reading the "Somethingawful" thread on it. The commentary is.... horrific.

    Not sure if it's true, but reports are that the shooter yelled something before shooting.

    Remember Reagan's would be assassin? Not political.

    Lennon's killer? Not political.

    And now there's some pushback. MSNBC is saying she's in surgery and there's also this:

    LATE BREAKING: UMC officials confirm Rep. Giffords is in surgery. She has not been declared dead.

    KOLD News 13 (KOLD_news13) on Twitter

    Hoping that means more than just that it's not yet been declared.

    According to Darci Slaten, University Medical Center public affairs officer, Gifford's death has not been confirmed.

    "She is alive and in surgery right now," Slaten said.

    Earlier, CNN and Fox News had both confirmed Giffords' death.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
