UPDATED: Last week, at a meet and greet at the Safeway in Douglas, someone in the crowd around Giffords dropped a gun. I KNEW there would be a Cochise County connection. (according to the Sierra Vista Herald) Is this the same person?
According to the Phoenix New Times, this is the THIRD act of violence against Democrats in 3 days. I’m not sure I would lump the threat against Janet Napolitano as the same thing.
TMP is reporting the alleged shooter of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is a 21 year old male. 19 people have been shot, 5 are dead.
According to the Gawker, Giffords was able to mover her hands at a doctor’s request. That is all The Pink Flamingo has been able to find, except for the following rather explosive information: The shooter is a 21 year old white male, dressed in black, and had a short hair cut. He also shot a child.
Giffords has been the object of violence previously when her office was trashed during the health care debate.
