That is wonderful news about Mrs.Gifford..God bless her and pray she will be home soon, healthy and happy.
As far as Sarah Palin the woman needs to stop and take a good look at herself...she has gotten way to aggressive, she is a woman in my opinion that has to have her own way. I am Canadian , but I see her as the type that could easily start another war and think nothing of it...I could be wrong , but I dont see her as being good for America. If you look at her without the smile, she looks almost evil.

If more people were carrying guns at this rally, he wouldn't have been able to shoot as many people. Get with it you stupid hippies.

Wow, it only took 5 posts before some good news about the Congresswoman's condition went political...new indoor record, I believe.

And, Bob, you are sick. Not even remotely funny.

I just came from the UMC at the U of A. I went to see the memorial on the front lawn. I'm so very glad to hear that she is recovering so quickly. Our community is pulling for her at every moment! You Go Gabby!

Guns should be outlawed. Arizona is perhaps the most conservative state. The right to bear arms does nothing to stop this madman. Guns are a silly, useless hobby.

When people get killed, its usually in their own homes by people they know. And in this case, I'm sure a few people had guns. But the deed was done in seconds with an automatic weapon. It takes less than one second to kill. The right to bear arms is a farce.

It's smarter to ban all guns in the first place. 30,000 deaths a year is a Holocaust. Unlike banning cars, the banning of guns will have no social cost.

Good. Now if only Sarah Palin's IQ would be downgraded to 'Borderline Retarded'.

Blaming guns for murder is like blaming cameras for child porn.

At some point you libs need to blame the person behind the device.

An old-tired stupid argument. The US has the highest gun deaths per capita in the world. Over 30,000 gun deaths in the US compared to about 90 in Japan. Human beings have flaws, and guns are like poison. According to Cartman, we shouldn't blame the crack. Then why doesn't we legalize it.

Humans have flaws and guns exploit it.

Japan is filled with Japanese people too. Ship all our angry ghetto people to Japan and their murder rate will skyrocket too.
