Regardless of your politics, this is a fucked up situation. Political disagreements should never come to this. I'd rather not point fingers, but I sense that it's some Tea Party type of nonsense. Rep. Giffords' office was vandalized last year, and she was also on Sarah Palin's "target list" (see below). There are conflicting reports on whether she's alive or dead; hopefully, it's the former. I'd expect a new round of gun restrictions at the least, as a result of this.
