AZ Congresswoman shot!

A 22 year old from Tucson shot and killed 5 people and wounded about 18 more this morning including Rep. Giffords From Sierra Vista, AZ.  Her husband is a Capt. at NASA and is an astronaut.  She took a bullet to the back of the head.  She survived the shot and surgery but is in ICU at this time.  Hope to God this nut doesn't turn out to be a young republican.  He ranted about the govt and mind control etc. on My Space and YouTube.  BTW, I saw her in Sierra Vista at a gun shop where a friend of mine works about 5 weeks ago.  She is a card carrying concealed weapon holder in the state.

Re: AZ Congresswoman shot!

Don't know if the shooter was/is a republican but, they do think he is a military veteran. Does that change your perception of him now?

Re: AZ Congresswoman shot!

They don't know if he has been accepted into a branch of the military or not as of about 4PM mst.  He made a comment on MySpace that he had been accepted at some testing center for the military but they have not said he was a veteran.  He is sounding more and more like a young man very confused about a lot of things that are vaguely referred to as the govt,, new money system and mind control crap.  Hope he wasn't affiliated with any of the parties but I have my suspicions.   Just re-read your post Dem.  Just what perception do you think I have of this guy?  I think he is a dirtbag--confused and maybe mislead by certain political folks talking about "lock and load" and putting a rifle scope crosshairs on Rep. Giffords on an anti-Giffords campaign poster during the election but a dirtbag just the same.  I suspect that he fancies himself as someone who can change things by killing the opposition like some talk about on here.

Re: AZ Congresswoman shot!

Well, a couple of things.  First, we know he isn't illegal.  Don't know if he is gay or not but since Rep. Giffords isn't against gays, that would be immaterial.  And, YES, I know several rightwingnuts here and elsewhere (palin put out an ad calling Giffords a target and showed her head with crosshairs on it) have voiced violence to rid the world of liberals.  He might be a liberal but with what he has posted on the internet, I would bet against it.  What else you got?

I have no idea what goes through your head. I just said I have my suspicions also.

I hope the guy gets to spend the rest of his life in jail and is some ape's boy toy.

Re: AZ Congresswoman shot!

It's the mindset. Michelle Bachmann says she wants Minnesotans to be armed and dangerous. Others "hinting" that taking up arms against fellow americans may be a political option.

 

Throwing around such glib comments just might trigger some looney into thinking that violence is credible option.
