I think the timing of this event was irresponsible…no, not shootings or anything like that. You don’t hold an outdoor event in those blazing temps. There are health concerns, and someone could have become very ill.

That said, I am pleased to see that there are many who understand that Loughner is just an idiot and that they shouldn’t let that asshole change the way they live their lives and what they choose to do.

I hope Barber doesn’t end up being the most anti-gun congressman to have ever held that seat (Udall, McNulty, Kolbe, Giffords, Barber).  The Democrat Party, in general, has been very hostile to firearms ownership.  We wish Barber well, but we’ll be watching him.
