  • Arizona Representative, shot in the head

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head while holding a public event in Tucson, Fox News and National Public Radio reported on Saturday.
    Fox said 11 other people were shot when an unidentified gunman ran up and began shooting indiscriminately as Giffords addressed supporters.
    Giffords was shot point blank in the head, Fox said.
    The network said the gunman was in custody.
    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.

    The days just get worst and worst.
    My prayer goes out to her family.

    Man that is just not right at all, I'm still in a small disbelief.

      7 dead so far. How can somebody just walk into a crowd like that and start shooting? Senseless.

            It truly is, it's just sad that this is what the world has become. I mean I can't talk, I was born the same year as the Detroit riots. But that was 92, this is 2011.

            What would go into a persons head to make them do this, I know it's hard times, but really...

                This is very tragic indeed.
                Many lives lost.
                And some will probably never be the same again from the trauma alone.....

                    More news on it, 2 of the 7 killed was a federal judge and a 9yr old.

                    Also, unlike other cases(that involve a shooting) the gunman didn't kill himself.

                      So senseless! I know sometimes you don't agree with someone's opinions or views, etc... But to take someone's life is so stupid! Thoughts and prayers go out to all the families affected by this senseless act!

                      Thx,

                      To live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning in the suffering.

                            This is far beyond a disagreement of opinion...
                            this killer is off his rocker crazy.

                            Only an insane person could commit such a heinous act.

                            My prayers go out to all those touched by this senseless tragedy.

                              We live in a democratic republic, this is not how sane people with their issues with government.

                              He truly is insane and I feel so bad for everyone hurt by this manic act of violence.

                              P.S. Quoted your post due to the fact that I noticed you hit 5,000 posts. Congrats!
