The Gabby Giffords Shooting Open Thread.

An atrocity occurred in Arizona this past weekend. I'm sure everyone has their opinions on what happened, and I'd like this to serve as an open forum for voicing your thoughts.

Rather than share my opinion on this, I'm simply going to provide some questions to set the tone. Chime in below.

Question: How did the media bungle the announcement of Giffords' death? Did people rush to point ideological fingers in this story? Would we be better served to wait until some motive becomes clearer? Are mentally unstable people able to be influenced by political rhetoric? Does this mark a turning point in terms of what's acceptable political discourse? How should the President address this situation?
