Senate leaders release joint statement on shootings in Tucson

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – The following is a joint statement from Senate President Russell Pearce and Senate Minority Leader David Schapira on the attack on U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the Arizonans attending her “Congress on Your Corner” event in Tucson:

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Congresswoman Giffords and those attending her event in Tucson who were attacked this morning. This is such a senseless tragedy and tough to comprehend. Elected leaders should have the ability to speak their minds and stand up for their constituents without threat of physical violence. Please join us in prayer for Congresswoman Giffords and the others who have lost or are fighting for their lives.”
