    The Tucson paper says on google search that Gabrielle was shot point blank in the head. It will not open for me. I'll keep trying. Meanwhile.....

    At least 3 people have been shot at a Congress on Your Corner event held by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Saturday morning.
    It happened just after 10 a.m. at the Safeway on Ina and Oracle, Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jason Ogan said.

    First thought was drug cartel hit. If they managed to tackle him then perhaps just a random crazy, unless the cartel wanted the guy to get caught.

    This story cannot be ignored by the MSM even if it is about hot political issues...<modsnip> which will make it difficult to sweep under the rug.

    Info is still sparse and articles too small to snip. Helicopters landing to take injured to hospital. Est 12 injured including Congresswoman.

    Any mention of the weapon? Assault rifle? Someone had to be filming this (one would hope).
