some people think that the assassination attempt had nothing to do with politics, but these republicans feel differently.
"In an email to the state’s GOP chair, Miller cited “constant verbal attacks” after his election last year “and Internet blog posts by some local members with Tea Party ties made him worry about his family’s safety.” Many of his Republican colleagues followed him out the door...“I wasn’t going to resign but decided to quit after what happened Saturday,” Miller said. “I love the Republican Party but I don’t want to take a bullet for anyone.”"
"Meanwhile, AZ GOP state senator Lori Klein brought a gun with her to the state Capitol this week. “I pack,” she said. “Our safety is our personal responsibility.”"
i've read that giffors was support of gun rights, although had she been "packin" i don think it would have done her any as she was the first to get shot point blank in the head...
...sometimes a false sense of security can be very dangerous
