It is truly a sad day for Tucson, Arizona and for the country in general.
Many lives were lost and many injured in the attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The horrific carnage is sadly indicative of the fact that the psychologically unbalanced can still possess a gun.
Our political leaders need to meet in such forums with the people without fear of being attacked or killed for their beliefs. Our democracy is truly in jeopardy because of these blatant acts of violence. My prayers go out to the victims and their families in these most troubling of time.
