Terrible News from Tucson

Congresswoman Giffords was shot at her first “Congress on Your Corner” event of the year.  There are conflicting reports as to whether or not she is still alive.  This is very sad and alarming news, our thoughts are with her family and all of the victims of today’s attack.

It appears that Representative Giffords is expected to survive as she has pulled through her surgery.  Others were killed, including a 9-year-old child and Federal Judge John Roll, who famously garnered death threats as he allowed undocumented immigrants to file a lawsuit against an Arizona rancher.
