First off, let me say that this shooting was horrible and a tragedy. NO ONE, no matter their politicial stance deserves to be shot or murdered for their beliefs, no matter what they might be. This is not speaking to the reasons for which the 2nd Amendment was written. This was NOT a 2nd Amendment issue as some on the Democratic side are trying to get started. This was a senseless shoting, possibly murder, by a deranged individual, definitely NOT one of "US".
After reading over and listening to this story from different sources and angles I have to say that the politicos are running hot and heavy with the parts of the story that helps to serve their individual purposes at hand. The Democratic powers that be are running with the idea that this their chance to get the old ANTI-GUN agendas up and running again! This is VERY DISGUSTING! One of their own has been gunned down and possibly murdered and all they can scheme about is their political agenda!
The above article is typical of the news that's out there today about this and it gets worse, just start Googling! This should go to prove to ANYONE just where the liberal left and socialist running "the show" have their minds! They will dare to use this incident as a political movement against the people.
I have even heard some on our side of the fence blaming Giffords attack on her or things she said or did. The fact is that Gifford had called for a more bi-partisan relationship in the government. Gifford is of course NOT TO BLAME and I'm sure that no one here would dare think or say that. I have not ill-feelings for her, she's an innocent in all this. My issue in these news reports are the Democrats that would be so low as to us this horrible incidence to further theur own positions.
OK, I'm off my soapbox, for now.
