This is what happens when you piss off the illegal immigrants and drug cartels so close to the Mexico border. Especially when border security and immigration reforms are being planned and discussed.
Maybe the Obama administration will now consider a proposal to cede all of the Tucson area to the Mexican cartels and send all of the US border personnel to Afghanistan to help the Afghans better secure their border with Pakistan?
I would like to point out that the shooter listed one of his favorite books as "The Communist Manifesto"- not exactly Republican/Tea Party reading material, so all you Liberal shils can sit back down now and try and have some friggin' respect for the dead.....sheesh

How are they using the media to push an agenda? They arent telling the media anything, which is obvious by the amount of misinformation being reported. They are looking for a possible 2nd suspect, but refuse to provide any more info about that person to the media.
The press conference held by the Sherrif raised more questions than answers. If they are trying to use the media to push an agenda, what is that agenda?
People trying to find an untamed ornithoid? (wild goose chase).
@ starviego - Being rejected by the military is actually interesting, especially the Army. All of the military branches have changed recruiting requirements in an effort to expand the field of recruits. Being rejected, and this is my guess based on media reports, is its either because of drug abuse or a psychiatric / mental issue. The guy looks healthy and fit so I doubt it was that.
Also, the wepaon was confirmed - Glock 19 (9mm) with a high capacity magazine (15 rounds in magazine - 16 rounds if a round is chambered with full mag).edit on 8-1-2011 by Xcathdra because: (no reason given)
From various articles I've read today, the alleged shooter is mentally unstable and "far left".
You do know that Rep Gifford used to be a Republican right.
