Sound of Sunday: Most intriguing quotes

(CNN) - Here are some of the most notable sound bites from the Sunday morning shows:

On blaming political discourse for violent behavior:

"This is something we have to pay attention to. Look, as we're trying to piece together what happened in Arizona, unfortunately, people are going at the low-hanging fruit and they're blaming political discourse, which may have some role in the underlying aspects here, but we also need to look at there will be other things that come out - the music, the video games, the social ways that people handle anger." - Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, CNN's "State of the Union"

  1. Freedom of Speech in the USA

    Are you actually asking, and expecting, the left in this country to let a crisis and tragedy go unused to further their causes??? Sir, you ask far too much.

    Simple fact in this tragedy was that many people were aware this kid had serious mental issues and nobody grabbed the bull by the horns and dealt with it. In many ways, this country's HIPA privacy laws and healthcare laws got in the way. Chalk it up to unintended consequences of laws. Passing more laws to add to the tens of thousands we already have will only make it worse.
