AZ Congresswoman Shot in Tucson


My congresswoman (although I didn't vote for her). Her condition has not been reported but she was shot in the head. Shooter captured. 12 may have been shot.

We can't recall any congress member ever being shot in recent times.

"Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and six others died after a gunman opened fire at a public event on Saturday, the Pima County, Ariz, sheriff's office confirms."

Is this the Second Amendment remedies that the GOP was talking about?

This is horrible.

Rep. Giffords was one of the few who lent the efforts of her office to help RCAPA's effort to address the follies of the FAA regarding the use of Slow Stick type model aircraft for commercial aerial photography.
While I do not share her political views in many areas She is (was ) a delightful, charming and reasonable woman.
She earned extra points in my book when she brought a bill to the house proposing a 5% pay cut for Congress last year. (It was voted down).

Congresswoman Gabriell Giffords R.I.P.

May her killer stretch a rope.

Until the situation is understood more clearly, it's not even funny to joke about this event. Damn.

A mother of two, and wife to a Gulf War veteran. Tragic loss for Arizona, and the Nation.

Rep. Giffords leaves a husband (Iraq war Veteran I believe) and two children.

Sadly I am surprised this has not happened already what with the "second amendment remedies" and TeeVee/Radio hate talk being pumped out.

Takes real courage to shoot an un-armed woman in the head...perhaps the shooter will be found to be mentally un-balanced. I hope so and that this turns out to be a one off act by a crazy person.

It now seems three of her staffers were also killed.
I believe I know one of them personally.

My sympathies to her, her family, the killed and injured and their families.
Not the right time to try and make political points.
That time will come.
But not yet.
