Arizona is the American version of Pakistan, where militant conservatives kill progressives for God. In Arizona (and other Red states) extremists kill for God and the GOP.
'U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and six others have died after a gunman opened fire at a public event on Saturday, Pima County sheriff's office in Arizona confirmed to National Public Radio.
A gunman ran up to Giffords, 40, and shot her in the head as she addressed supporters outside a Safeway grocery store, according to media reports.
...Giffords, 40, a Democrat, is married to U.S. astronaut Mark Kelly. She took office in January 2007, emphasizing issues such as immigration reform, embryonic stem-cell research, alternative energy sources and a higher minimum wage.'
Update: "MSNBC says a surgeon on the scene claims that Giffords is still alive, in critical condition."
PS: I should not have assumed the murderer killed for God.
