Guns in the Debate

Tucson is where I call home, even though I moved to San Diego in 1995, so the event hits me nearly as hard as it does current residents of that city. Ms. Giffords was elected by Tuscon citizens, but as a Member of the U.S. House, she represented all Americans and we all care about her.

There have always been people in this country who will bring lethal weapons to a political debate, so while of course I utterly condemn the action I don't believe this is really anything new, nor that this is the time to be flinging blame and accusations. I will only suggest that if you pray then do so now for Ms. Giffords and for the families of those whose lives were lost.
