“This heinous act will change the interaction between elected officials and their constituents. Please continue to pray for the shooting victims and their families. Please also pray for the safety of Congressmen, Senators, President Obama and other elected officials in the aftermath of this shooting.” -Tea Party Patriots, via their Facebook page, reacting to the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and others in Arizona over the weekend.

Truly a tragedy. I'm not going to comment any further on this topic for some time.
