My Statement on Giffords' Shooting

I know this is a very quick post, and I will absolutely have more later, but this is my initial thought on today's shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords at a constituent event in Tucson, Arizona this morning (where I am right now):

It is abhorrent to think that in this day and age people still believe that violent political outbursts are in any way morally justifiable. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' shooting today, not to mention the shooting of Judge Roll, Giffords' aides, and innocent bystanders, is a national tragedy. I am praying for the woundeds' safe recovery, and for the families of the dead.
