Some observations since the shooting in Tucson

Using tragedy to attack the Constitution:

Carolyn McCarthy (D - New York) set to introduce another gun control bill

Bob Brady (D - Pennsylvania) plans to introduce a bill that would ban symbols like that now-infamous campaign cross-hair map.

Making people wonder how they were ever elected:

Bob Kerrey (D - Nebraska [Ret]) blames the shooting on the impending vote to repeal ObamaCare

James Clyburn (D - South Carolina) wants the Fairness Doctrine brought back

Peter King (Rino - New York) wants to make it illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official

And lets not forget the morons in the media:

MSNBC anchor Richard Lui "Is it time to rethink the Second Amendment?" (Good thing it was MSNBC. There are only 3 or 4 people watching)

And last but not least - The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence is using the tragedy as a fund raiser.

No shock

Not long after the tragic shooting in Tucson yesterday the sewers of the internet (Daily Kos, Little Green Footballs, etc) instantly started the meme that the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, etc were to blame for the shooting. No desire to wait for the facts - just place the blame.

And the Main Stream Media picked up and ran with it. Never mind it appears the shooter was an apolitical nut - the political opportunists on the left are following the Rahm Emmanuel philosophy of not letting a crisis go to waste.
