BREAKING NEWS: STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT ON THE SHOOTING OF ARIZONA CONGRESSWOMAN GABRIELLE GIFFORDS

STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

 

This morning, in an unspeakable tragedy, a number of Americans were shot in Tuscon, Arizona, at a constituent meeting with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.  And while we are continuing to receive information, we know that some have passed away, and that Representative Giffords is gravely wounded.

 

We do not yet have all the answers.  What we do know is that such a senseless and terrible act of violence has no place in a free society.  I ask all Americans to join me and Michelle in keeping Representative Giffords, the victims of this tragedy, and their families in our prayers.
