    I agree, this is NOT a second amendment issue. But it is an issue that involves the hatred and intolerance that has become such a normal occurrence within the right wing leadership. The sick bastard that pulled this trigger has had months of encouragement to pull the trigger. That, is where this debate needs to go. Not, to the 2nd amendment.
    The hammering Sarah Palin takes day in and day out. Buy the main stream media. Then you babble about how she is irresponsible. I think it would be wise of you to look at both side of the street before running your thoughts that its all the rights fault.

    I don't know where you live but it sure is not in AZ. This sherrif is not a moderate. He is pro illegal imigration and panders to the left which elects him.

    A sherrif, in his official capacity should not be givning his personal opinion as to why a suspect committed a crime. His job is to investigate the facts and arrest those responsible, but not give his personal view on a crime that was just committed hours before. This guy is unprofessional to say the very least.

    It's sad that you would blame others for inciting this person to commit this crime. I don't remember anyone saying John Hinckley was incited by the left when he shot Reagan. (He was just crazy) I guess you lefties have to always assign blameto some segment of society so you can "fix" it with a government regulation of program.

    How about you wait for the facts to come out before you start condeming Palin, Brewer and others from the center right.

    From eyewitness reports after the Congresswoman was shot he began shooting randomly.
    No, I don't condone the shooting.

    Someone asked the question and I replied.

    I also said those guilty should pay!

    To most of the country, he would be classified as Liberal. In most polls, 78% around the country agreed with SB1040.

    whole heartedly agree...this tragedy SHOULD have no political overtones..its a whack job ..whatever his motives may or may not have been, we need to not lose sight of the fact that 6 people lost their lives, not how their political views or in the case of the judge how he ruled..there was a totally innocent 9 yr old girl that lost her life..

    My condolences to the people and families involved.
    In regard to any other comments, I will wait until I can see some facts.

    It is pretty tasteless to get involved in partisan bickering at this point.

    I don't like to get into political discussions because they really go nowhere, but I have to agree with John here on Sheriff Dupnik. I'm going to say some things I probably shouldn't, but then I've never been known to shy away from controversy.

    I lived in Tucson for 28 years before coming to the Phoenix area. I lived in a very small tight neighborhood where we knew everyone and most activities were centered around the elementary school. I did a lot of volunteer work at the school. Sheriff Dupnik's two daughters were in the same classes with my two sons. This was before he was Sheriff but with the Tucson Police Dept. I had another friend in the neighborhood who also had children in the school. She worked nights as a telephone operator. This was way before the telephone systems were very automated. She would tell me of conversations overheard through the switchboard where the Sheriff would call home and berate and threaten his wife. She was a very sweet browbeaten woman. Shortly after the kids left elementary school and went on to junior high where the neighborhoods expanded and we lost close touch with families like before, Sheriff Dupnik became divorced due to domestic violence.

    Now, I can't keep track of the full meaning of left versus right, moderate, liberal, radical, etc. I just judge people by their personal attitudes and behavior. In this case, I have no idea where Sheriff Dupnik stands politically. He was a very intense man that many people were intimidated by and afraid of. I would probably have to put him in somewhat of the same category as Sheriff Joe Arpaio due to the fact that they are both very intense, dominating men who believe in their own ideals so strongly that they are not afraid to go to extremes to achieve their goals. I strongly support many of their ideals while shaking my head at many of their activities. My youngest son has worked for both men, being in the Pima County Corrections system and then in the Maricopa County Corrections for a number of years.

    If one wanted to know of a really colorful Sheriff, one would have to go back in time in Pima County to Sheriff Burr. This was a very corrupt Sheriff and really gave Tucson the "Wild West" reputation.

    Just my two cents,

    Oh, I forgot to add one thing, while talking to my other son in Tucson, I discovered that my grandson was in the same class at Mountain View High school with the shooter. I'm dying to hear what he might know of the guy, but as my son said, this is a very big school and they may not have even known each other.

    Ok, so you're on record as supporting the hatred and intolerance portrayed daily from America's mainstream leaders? Good for you. I am proud to stand against you.
