Proposed House resolution condemns 'horrific' Arizona attack

(CNN) - The U.S. House of Representatives will vote on a resolution Wednesday condemning the "horrific" Arizona shooting rampage, as President Barack Obama prepares to attend a memorial for victims of the attack.

The proposed resolution lists the names of the six victims killed in the Saturday shooting and states that the House of Representatives "stands firm in its belief in a democracy in which all can participate and in which intimidation and threats of violence cannot silence the voices of any American."

    More stupidity from the Hill, as the resolution assumes there was a political motivation for the attack.......which is a pure and simple LIE!

    It was the action of a single deranged person, and nothing more.

    Clearly we have some very irresponsible people in Washington.

    I wish Congress would not further politicize this tragedy. This was a criminal act and there are thousands of laws against it already. This country needs to stop its knee-jerk reaction to everything that occurrs in this country. It all smacks of political exploitation. Politicians like to say this country is bigger than one person, well one person shouldn't affect the rights of 310 million others.

    Yippeee!!!!! The government's going to send a strongly worded letter or protest to someone about this. They won't work for serious gun control, that would mean giving up all the money the gun lobby gives them but rest assured they will complain!!!!!

    Such a sad event. I'm so glad we can have a moment of bipartisan support for the victims and heroes. God Bless America!
