    Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords(D) was shot at a Tuscon Safeway along with 11 other people. Who knows why this happened. My thoughts go out to all injured. Good luck Chuck Hrosik

    According to your thoughts, the shooter was a Republican and the other 11 people were all registered Demo/socialists. Somehow I don't think so. Maybe coincidence-- wrong place, wrong time. It happens even to politicians. I am sorry that she was wounded. Her family will be the one who suffers.

    She, and several others are reported killed, and possibly we could show respect, and pray for the families.

    The congresswoman was a blue dog dem. She has been condeming the President stance on immigration, and pushing for tougher immigration laws.

    It's reported as of 3:26, 19 shot 5 killed. Giffords is in "Grave" condition. they are looking for a possible second perp.

    God be with her and the families of those who have been injured and killed.

    Lets hope she make it without any permanent damage. This article states that automatic weapons were used but as we all know the media doesn't know the difference.

    Regardless of what the motives were lets also hope that the attackers are brought to justice.

    Prayers and best wishes are sent from here to the Congresswoman, her family and to the rest of the dead and injured.

    A federal judge was shot also. John Roll.

    Your're right about the auto weapons.... They all think they are the same things.

    The news I got was the congresswoman is awake and responding to doctors commands, and the guy in custody was a recent afghanistan veteran.

    I heard she was out of surgery and sedated. Next 24 hours crucial. Just watched the doctors press conference on CNN.

    From what I read she supports gun rights and a strong border, good enough for me even if she is a Dem. I'm saying a prayer for her, her family and all those affected. We win with ballots not bullets. God Bless her.

    Fox news report contained the following tidbit: "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."

    Wonder how many others would have been killed/wounded had there not been armed citizens to help bring down the suspect?

    I hope everyone says a prayer for her and all the other victims, as well as those whose lives have been needlessly taken.

    What the Devil said.

    A Democratic State Senator helped make our Handgun Carry Permit laws the showcase program for the Nation. His efforts probably helped get him voted out last Nov, along with baggage from the slime in Washington.
