    This doesn't happen in Tucson. This community is numb. We know people who work at that Safeway.

    Okay, thanks. Not to get political, but they wouldn't have attended a Dem rally in the first place. That said, some non-partisan bystanders/shoppers were probably victimized as well.

    We have even heard here that he was dead too.

    This doesn't happen in Tucson. It just doesn't.

    just for some more info, the reports of her dying are because she was shot point blank in the head and eyewitnesses are assuming she died(cause c'mon point blank in the head) but she is alive at this moment

    Mainly because you're an "open carry" state. The only problem is that you can never fully deter crazy people.

    by he do you mean the shooter or her husband? her husband is on a private jet with his parents on the way to Tucson right now. the only thing we have heard on the shooter is that he is in custody

    Yes, I am saying early reports said he (her husband) was dead too.

    There are so many conflicting reports.
