Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
But josepp is right: This horrendous event is far more than just a personal tragedy for a few people and their friends and families. It is more than just another mass murder. It is a frontal attack on our democracy and our freedom to be actively involved in it.   That is a more far-reaching reason for grief - and outrage - than is the death of or injury to 18 people by a lunatic, as sad as that is in itself.
