    This is just horrific. Recrimination will come, but IMHO, this not a 2nd Amendment issue.

    Yep....in the rush to be first, the stations are just sort of taking random statements and stirring them up.

    This is the latest we have. Among the five apparently was a Fed Judge who had numerous threats made due to a ruling he made about the rights of illegals to file suit against American land owners. Shooter is 22 yo and I forget his name but they still have no motive.

    Senseless... Gabby was one of the good guys (even though a Dem) she worked hard, listened to both sides.....a very good servant. Very stupid stuff.

    I agree with Snick. this has NOTHING to do with the second amendment.

    I do, however hope that we tone down the "second amendment solution" and "lock and load" rhetoric coming from politicians of any ilk. Especially "candidates in the crosshairs" web sites, as has been reported to exist.

    I just did a survey of the internet blogs. The righties think he's a lefty. The lefties think he's a righty. From what I've seen the guy pretty much sounds like a psychotic.

    That's just terrible. When I read this it got me to thinking about when Daschle came to town for a campaign event and we took our young daughter to let her meet someone she saw on TV and get her picture taken with him. You hate to think you're putting your children's lives in danger going to something like this, but it appears that you are...

    No need to hang this on a nut job..."We have met the enemy, and he is us!" - Pogo

    This is not about the 2nd Amendment, but it may prompt us to consider the responsible use of our 1st Amendment rights.

    Has the rhetoric gotten out of hand?

    My only question is where was the security or the police...Arizona has open carry laws if I am not mistaken, hard to imagine that someone wasnt packing and taking the shooter out...its hard to believe any elected official going in public without some sort of security
