If half of what I’m reading about the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is true, it was a conspiracy of the lowest and most detested kind. The police and FBI believe 3 men were involved in this shooting of an innocent woman, several of her aides, a judge and people who were there to speak with her.
The people who were shot had done nothing wrong but have a different opinion than that of the shooters. That’s one of the things this country was founded on……being allowed to have your opinion safely without fear of reprisals such as what happened today.
What is even more frightening is that a so-called political party, or even one member of it, would actually have the following printed and passed out to Tea Party members. I’ve taken this excerpt from the Huffington Post as an example of the lengths of stupidity and evil that pervades some people’s minds.

While there is no evidence at this point to suggest that the shooting was politically motivated, Matt Yglesias points out that an anti-Giffords event was held in June with the billing: “Get on Target for Victory in November.

Rep. Giffords was also on Sarah Palin’s “target list.”
As noted earlier, a gun was dropped at a Giffords event in 2009, and her office was vandalized in March.
Chilling is a gross understatement.
My deepest sympathies for the families of all who were shot and injured or killed.
To add to this atrocity………a 9 year old boy was killed by these so- called reformers. As I said, murder of the innocent,
