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."
