Rep Gabrielle Giffords Shot

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Shot in Tucson – NYTimes.com

Gabrielle Giffords, a congresswoman from Arizona, was shot in the head on Saturday at a public event held at a grocery store in Tucson, her spokesman, C. J. Karamargin, said. Others at the event, including members of her staff, were among the injured.

Like many Arizonans I am shocked at the news of the shooting and the possible death of Rep Giffords. Fortunately as I write this Rep Giffords is still alive but in surgery. The gunman has been caught.

It is my hope that people will refrain from trying to politicize or use this incident to push a political agenda as is already happening on some major news outlets. Now is the time for focusing attention on the victims and convicting the perpetrator of the crime.

My thoughts and prayers to all the victims of the shooting.

A sad day for Arizona. A sad day for America.
