Arizona shooting?

Does anyone know the details about today's shooting? Was it random or were they targeted? I'm at my bf's house & he only has basic cable & I can't find any info.

  • For those saying he was a liberal

    He was a psychotic

    He didn't make sense...but in politics one side was specifically making comments about violense and uprisings. Don't retreat, reload...bloody revolutions and putting people in targets....not to mention her oppenent having a fundraiser with machine gun target practice....

    Translation: ignore the facts about the shooter, instead pay attention to stuff that has absolutely NOTHING to do with it so I can make my case that it's all Republicans fault no matter what.

  • Even if the shooter was politically motivated this is not the fault of either party this is the fault of a seriously disturbed person.

  • He is just plain nuts. THIS is why I keep hoping for tougher gun laws, when nuts have guns and shoot people so easily.

    ***
    There was a report that a fellow CIVILIAN attendee SHOT back at the shooter after he started firing on the crowd, wounding him, which may have resulted in FEWER people being shot and/or killed!!!

    If that accounting is true then that would be an example of when guns serve a POSITIVE purpose!!

  • When asked if she had any enemies, Giffords' father reportedly wept. "'Yeah,'" he told The New York Post. "'The whole Tea Party.'"

  • She leans conservative and is a former Republican. She was one of 19 that voted against Pelosi AND she read the 1st amendment during the recent reading of the Constitution on the house floor.
