“Could he even name one of the fallen?”
No.Not from this shooting,Fort Hood,Iraq,Afganistan,Seal Team 6,or any other loss of American life.
I must take up for Giffords here....she is not a vegetable - she has made a remarkable recovery thus far!
Smears like this are unbecoming for a Freeper..............
They are insane for not executing the killer.
For being FReepers, ya'll don't keep up much with the news, do you?
So, can we look forward to this being an annual event?
Looks that way.....the ‘Rats have NO shame.....
LA Marks Anniversary Of Tucson Tragedy At City Hall

The bell at Los Angeles City Hall rang six times Sunday in memory of those killed in a deadly shooting rampage in Tucson, Ariz. last year.
The event was part of a nationwide commemoration of the one-year anniversary of a deadly shooting rampage that also left 13 wounded, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz.
Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild had asked mayors across the country to commemorate the tragedy.
And someone spontaneously pulled out a gun and killed 6 people, injured 13 more. So its important to remember, Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge said.
LaBonge filling in for Mayor Antonio Villairagosa struck the bell at 9:11 a.m. Sunday, which was 10:11 a.m. in Tucson the time the shootings took place.
what did he call her?
I feel for this woman and hope she grows stronger each day; but there were others murdered and not even mentioned. May they RIP.
And the $64 question is...Who does he pray to?
What the hell...he has to do SOMETHING worthwhile occasionally.
I wonder which of the five sessions......

“How does one communicate with a vegetable?”
I had FoxNews on this morning, she was covered standing at the shopping center of the assault.
She was talking with somebody, using at least one arm for gestures.
Hardly a vegetable.
You, on the other hand?
I read she can talk, with difficulty.
She’s unfit to continue in office. Though even with brain trauma she’s probably more with it then Bob Byrd was for the last 10 years of his tenure.
