Most reaction to the Tuscon shooting has not been overly thoughtful. Based on what’s been reported, it seems doubtful that political rhetoric of any sort played much of a role. Even if the truth emerges differently, it’s certainly premature to draw conclusions about cause and effect. My experience is that you make better decisions when in possession of the facts.
The left invariably prefers reckless personal attacks intended to discredit those with whom they disagree to sober discussion of areas of substantive disagreement.
