Once again, Americans are up in arms or perchance, better armed and dangerous. Only little more than a week into 2011, citizens have had to confront their fears, feelings, all at gunpoint. It began on a calm, clear Saturday. In a Safeway Store Tucson parking lot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords held one of her customary Congress on the Corner events. It was January 8, 2011.

By Steve Scheetz

Jared Loughner shot Gabrielle Giffords through the brain. From the moment I read the story, the only true fact that can be ascertained is that simple statement. Currently, there are people on the left blaming “right wing extremists” for this action, and then we have those on the right suggesting left wing ties.

In the meantime, we have people posting their rambling rants while pointing fingers saying: “AH-HA! This is why he did it.” It can be certain that none of these “analysts” have psychology degrees, nor have they spent any time with the shooter; therefore, it is not possible for any of the couch analysts to determine anything at all.
