Insanity. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and several bystanders, including her staff, were shot by some lunatic at an event in Tucson today. Details are still coming in. NPR is reporting that Giffords has died. The gunman was tackled by bystanders and arrested.
A senseless crime. Prayers go out from 3BP to all of the victims and their families.
UPDATE: Rep. Giffords survived but has a long recovery ahead. 5 people were killed, including a 9-year old girl. Awful.
