Statement on the Shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ)

The shooting of Congresswoman Giffords is a senseless act that has no place in our political discourse. We as Americans pride ourselves on the fact that, whatever our political disagreements, we are often able to resolve them without resorting to extremes of violence.

It is unfortunate that some choose the “bullet box” as the first method to voice their ideological frustrations, rather than expressing them through the peaceful electoral process. While some will attempt to blame a person, statement, or organization for this incident, the ultimate responsibility for this shooting lies with the person who pulled the trigger-and with them alone.

I join with the citizens of Congresswoman Giffords’ district, her state, and other Americans in praying for her family, as well as those of others wounded in this incident.
