U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was wounded today in an assassination attempt that killed at least 5 others, including a 9 year old girl and a Federal Judge. The Judge, John Roll, was a Republican appointed to the bench by President George H. W. Bush. Congresswoman Gifford is a Democrat.
I think Arizona's Senior Senator said it best:
Whoever did this, whatever their reason, they are a disgrace to Arizona, this country and the human race, and they deserve and will receive the contempt of all decent people and the strongest punishment of the law.
Yes, Senator... they are a disgrace and they have my complete contempt. I have never heard of Rep. Giffords until today. I am saddened and outraged by this senseless tragedy. I believe the Right to Life extends to Democratic Members of Congress, the unborn, Bedouin Tribesmen in Iraq, drug users (who all to often wind up dead in "police encounters"), Mark Madoff... and you and I.
This politically motivated mass murder is yet another unintended consequence of the lies and distortions of the propaganda machine that the American Body Politic, Left and RINO, has become.
And now what? What if another incident like this were to occur? Then what? Will our democracy be forced behind bullet proof glass? Or will we have to have a Secret Service detail for each Member of Congress? Will it be the local police next? The Rule of Law is under attack like no other time in its short history... and it is under that attack as a result of the unintended consequences of the actions taken by those that purport to support it... though they will be unable to see it that way, opting instead for another run at our Second Amendment Rights.
This is a sad day for all Americans, indeed.
