    my prayers go out to the congresswoman and the others involved. I'm glad they caught the shooter right away.

    I read the story on NPR and the comments are already throwing blame at the tea party and gun rights groups.

    What a horrible thing to happen. Prayers to all involved.
    Hopefully they caught the right wacko who did this.

    Interesting thing in the article, it said an automatic weapon was used. I have to question if that is accurate.

    I posted on the Arizona forum and I'll post it here too, Fox news is reporting a gun owned in the crowd fired at the gunman. And my speculation is that this act possibly saved more lives

    Lets hope that's the case. After my initial shock of this shooting my next thought was "well here comes another Brady-esq bill."

    What a tragedy - lets keep these victims and the perpetrator in our prayers.

    From the article:

    According to the law enforcement official, the suspect began shouting something before shooting wildly with an automatic weapon. Shots then rang out from the crowd -- a security agent or someone else fired at the suspect who survived.

    The man was 22yr old resident, he used a semi-auto glock 9mm with an extened mag (20rd).

    IDK why this is in the WI forum.

    Politicians have been targets since the first man stood on a rock telling other men what to do.

    I'm sure this information will get lightly tossed aside. And I'm sure the spin doctors are going to attack AZ's constitutional carry, that or a fresh new federal high-cap mag ban, For our "safety" of course.

    -Landose-

    Edit to add- Why is it when stuff like this happends, the anti's start drooling uncontrollably? I mean at the brunt of it all, a person died today and they're just gonna use this as ammo for their anti gun arsenal. Effed up world we live in....effed up world.

    On msnbc there was an FBI spokes person saying that the high cap magazine used could only be purchased by law inforcement and military personal. So I don't see how civi high cap mags could be affected

    Deleted by Citizen. The poster I quoted thought better of his comment and deleted it, so I deleted the material I quoted and my reply against assassinations and in favor of logic and reason.

    She was not a LIBERAL Democrat. She was a pro 2A Democrat.

    Disgusting

    To Glock34
    Your 2 sentences are contradictory. Not only is the second sentence cold & heartless, but also baseless, un-American , and inappropriate for this forum IMHO. This type of sentiment can only hurt our cause. If I were a Moderator your comment would be deleted.

    Glock34 - I'd ask you to edit your post for the sake of this forum and the cause. That was totally out of line and will only further the stereotypes we have been fighting so long to change.

    this incident should NOT be taken out of context by the anti's to push for more stringent gun laws. this incident should highlight that the threat exists anywhere, any time, to ALL people. and the ability to carry a firearm and defend yourself is becoming critical in our society. the nut jobs and whackos continue to grow in number, the threat to society continues to grow in numbers. the police are there to hold the line, and we as citizens are there to protect ourselves, those in proximity to us, and help the police to maintain social order, and defeat threats before they become incidents.

    Edited. But for my edit to have any effect. you will all have to delete your replies.

    Yes She was pro 2nd her only good attribute. Will I apologize NO. I really Dislike them to the point that I would rather see them all ( out of a Job ) . Than voting to destroy this country, with Higher taxes, unconstitutional Laws, Force health care on everyone, let 25 million Illegals stay here, etc, etc, etc, etc,etc,etc. Will a terrible incident like this happen again ? I hope not. The Dems would pervert it into a weapon to use against us.

    I agree, but you know they will...and Jeri will be first on the Band wagon. If only he would have used a cross bow. The Dems will so USE this event to help along an agenda. she was not a Liberal Dem....If your a Dem & you mostly vote along Liberal Party lines then she was a Lib Dem

    agreed also glock, we know how this one will roll; it's always the same, with maddening predictability. the left needs to understand it wasnt the gun that realy killed anyone, it was the deluded ideas in that person that killed, and these people, and their distorted views need to be 'dealt with' by society. and until that day occurrs, citizens must carry firearms for their protection. we didnt create society, and the growing problems, we simply react to an ever increasing threat to us as individuals, and society as a whole.

    i didnt create this world, dont punish me for trying my best to live in it.
