I guess democratically electing leaders got boring.
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and six others died after a gunman opened fire at a public event on Saturday, the Pima County, Ariz., sheriff's office confirms. The 40-year-old Democrat was outside a Tucson grocery store when a gunman ran up and began firing indiscriminately. The suspect was taken into police custody.

So if my brother winds up with depression...
Or if my granpa had dementia...I shouldn't own guns because a politician got shot?
Gun rights didn't kill this woman. Some nutjob did.

Sources said Giffords had been shot in the head.
She was taken to University Medical Center where a hospital spokesman confirmed she was alive. But the extent and seriousness of her injuries are unknown.
A law enforcement source told KGUN that the shooter was in custody.
Giffords, a Democrat, was holding a "Congress on Your Corner" event today at a Safeway supermarket in northwest Tucson.
