US Congresswoman Shot

AZ Representative Gabrielle Giffords Critically Wounded:
According to a local news report, Giffords was shot in the head at point-blank range. She was taken to University Medical Center in Tucson, but was reported to have been responsive immediately after the shooting. A hospital spokesperson said that nine people had arrived and that all were in critical or serious condition, including a child.

Positive thoughts to Rep. Giffords and the families of those wounded and killed.


  1. A classic case of domestic terrorism. Let's see how the media spins it. Sad that Fox News viewers and other conservatives think that democrats are the main reason to the economic situation in America and the direction the country is headed. It will be sad to learn if the attack was based on the issue of immigration. As a political scientist I know that the problem of illegal immigration is due to business leaders influencing both political parties so their operating costs and profit margins remain the same. Be interesting to see if the shooter was a criminal. Maybe MikeB can write a Op-Ed to a newspaper in Arizona to write the shooting and all the knowledge he had on guns in America.

  2. "Positive thoughts to Rep. Giffords and the families of those wounded and killed."

    Jadegold must not yet realize Gifford was a gunloon.

  3. AzRed: Never let facts get in the way of your lunacy.

    Rep. Giffords had a D+ rating from the NRA and a D- rating from the GOA.

  4. But she owned a gun and supported the ending of the DC gun ban, therefore by your logic she is a gunloon.

  5. From what I've read so far, she was a moderate, plain and simple. The guy who shot her was not. He was an unfit gun owner, who, for one reason or another, stopped being lawful yesterday.

    What could have prevented it? I don't know. Maybe some semblance of gun control which Arizona certainly doesn't have.

    One thing seems clear to me, the higher number of gun owners we have, the higher the number of unfit ones.
