xxxxxxx. Evidently some random nutcase.

I didn't agree with her politics, but this is just wrong.





ETA: Retract death statement, it is not clear as of right now (noon, Tucson time) if she is dead or not.

However, she has been brought to Univ. Medical Center, THE best hospital in the entire area, outstanding trauma center.

Default *2nd Amendment Remedies* at Work

U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head while holding a public event in Tucson, National Public Radio reported Saturday.

Other news agencies reported up to 11 other people had been injured after an unidentified gunman ran up and began shooting indiscriminately as Giffords addressed supporters.

Giffords was shot point blank in the head, according to Fox News.

Giffords, who was re-elected to her third term in November, was hosting her first "Congress on Your Corner" event at the Safeway in northwest Tucson, NPR reported.

The gunman was in custody, according to media reports.

Giffords, 40, a Democrat, is married to U.S. astronaut Mark Kelly.

She took office in January 2007, emphasizing issues such as immigration reform, embryonic stem-cell research, alternative energy sources and a higher minimum wage.

I can't stand Fox News but this statement has no bearing on the motives of the person who did the shooting. Until we get a statement from the police after they have interrogated the suspect, any suggestions about motives are nothing more than mental masturbation.

Apparently, Gabrielles' husbands' brother is on the Space Station ... sad irony ...


*Giffords' husband, Mark Kelly, is expected to be the commander of Endeavor, the final shuttle mission for NASA.
The mission, which launches in February, will bring equipment to the International Space Station.

Upon arrival, he expects to see his twin brother, Scott, who is the commander of the station for the next six months.

It will be the first time NASA will have two siblings, let alone twins, in space at the same time*

Considering the number of illegal fence hoppers in that state it has a good chance of being right!

I for one do not like calling those people illegal immigrants their just COMMON CRMINALS and should be treated as such!

Open your eyes, and stop drinking the Koolaid.

These are real lives and real people, not politics.

When you give idiots with Guns and Bullets cover, all they need is justification and rationalization and they become what we all know what they be. History has told us that much.
