Former Presidential Candidate and Arizona Senator, John McCain has released an official statement, following the insane shootings that took place yesterday afternoon in Tuscon, Arizona. Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords is still in critical condition after being shot point-blank in the face at a public appearance today.
In addition to Giffords injuries, a prominent aid, a 9-year old child and Federal Judge John Roll were all killed. Senator John McCain had this to say:
“I am horrified by the violent attack on Representative Gabrielle Giffords and many other innocent people by a wicked person who has no sense of justice or compassion. I pray for Gabby and the other victims, and for the repose of the souls of the dead and comfort for their families. I beg our loving Creator to spare the lives of those who are still alive, heal them in body and spirit, and return them to their loved ones. Whoever did this; whatever their reason, they are a disgrace to Arizona, this country and the human race, and they deserve and will receive the contempt of all decent people and the strongest punishment of the law.”
