Do you believe the political rhetoric of the past two years is in any way responsible for the tragic shooting in Tuscon, Ariz. last week?

No. Freedom of speech is a fundamental right in America. The shooting suspect was motivated by his own demented ideas, not by any political speech.

Perhaps. There are politicians taking advantage of the situation for their own parties’ benefit, but it would not hurt for all of us to respect each other a little more and to think before we speak.
