Just a few hours ago Representative Gabby Gifford (Democrat) was shot in the head at a constitutent meeting and at least two individuals have died as a result. There are a lot of facts that remain unknown at this point. But from the early reporting, it is clear the gunman had the opinon that the Constitution was not being appropriately followed. How often have we seen folks here on Sciforums with their own unique intrepretations of the Constitution? Too many times. Remember the Tea Party candidate for Senate in Nevada who advocated the second Amendment solution in lieu of the ballot box? Now we see it in action. When are Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Anne Coulter going to tone down their rhetoric? When is the whacko rigiht wing going to stop calling anyone who disagrees with them traitors? Enough is enough. This careless disregard for the truth, fear and hate mongering needs to stop now.
