Tucson = Roe v. Wade
GOP Arizona State Senator Linda Gray blames abortion, not too many guns in the wrong hands, for the Tucson shootings. Say what? Listen: If you want to disagree with some of us and have reasoned, thoughtful, vaguely coherent political discourse about that disagreement, fine. But these idiotic non-sequiturs are unhelpful. Also, they make us despair for our country. If we can't outsmart crazy or stupid, where does that leave us?
On how legalizing abortion led to the Tucson shootings: "Why respect life if we can kill an infant who can't defend themselves. It goes back to the value in the creation of life and the respect for that life and if your not trained and have that type of character in realizing that all human life deserves respect this is what our country has come to."
