Democrat Congresswoman Gabriele Gifford from Tucson, Arizona was shot today, along with perhaps nineteen other people. At the time I am writing this, we don't know if she is dead or alive. We don't know who shot her. She is pro-gun, she is anti-illegal alien, despite being a Democrat. Some have said she may have been shot by a Tea Party member. She may have been shot by an illegal alien. She may have been shot by an anti-abortion protester, or perhaps an Islamic extremist. We don't know at this point who the shooter may be yet. What I do know is the person who did this is a criminal who deserves the death penalty. This shooter killed several people and seriously injured, if not killed a member of Congress. In our democratic system the way to bring about change is by the ballot box, not the gun. I pray for her recovery and the recovery of the others as well; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
