Thread Name: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
As of a few minutes ago, CNN and FOX both were reporting the congresswoman alive. Let us hope this is true and that she makes a full recovery. A Judge has been confirmed killed, as well as perhaps two or three others, which is sad and unfortunate. Nine others may be in hospital with unsaid wounds.

Donuel, CNN had a feed from KVOA (I think those the call letters), Tucson. The reporter noted that several of her supporters at that rally also had guns, and opined as that may have helped put an end to the shooter's rampage. Wondering out loud, but maybe those supporters had heard Glenn Beck support the 2nd Amendment right to own a firearm for protection. I'm pretty sure he didn't say it was to shoot up meetings and speeches.
