I feel really bad about the shootings in Arizona. It is sad that those types of situations happen in this country.
What is even sadder is to hear the left (Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is a Democrat) demonize members of the tea party and the right as the cause of this tragedy. Now they are all talking about having armed bodyguards.
Anyone in the public eye can be a target of criminals who walk among us.
I hope the discourse and debate on our differences is allowed to continue. I do not plan on hiding under my bed.
This is a free country, but there are dangers. It comes with the territory.
