Bless you, Mark Kelly
Mark Kelly is the husband of former AZ Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. He addressed this to AZ Gov. Jan Brewer and legislature of the state.

"We have a political class that is afraid to do something as simple as have a meaningful debate about our gun laws and how they are being enforced. We have representatives who look at gun violence,
 not as a problem to solve, but as the white elephant in the room to ignore. As a nation we have repeatedly passed up the opportunity to address this issue. After Columbine; after Virginia Tech; after Tucson and after Aurora we have done nothing.

"In this state we have elected officials so feckless in their leadership that they would say, as in the case of Gov. Jan Brewer, ‘I don't think it has anything to do with the size of the magazine or the caliber of the gun.’ She went on and said, ‘Even if the shooter's weapon had held fewer bullets, he'd have another gun, maybe. He could have three guns in his pocket’ – she said this just one week after a high capacity magazine allowed you to kill six and wound 19 others, before being wrestled to the ground while attempting to reload. Or a state legislature that thought it appropriate to busy itself naming an official Arizona state gun just weeks after this tragedy occurred, instead of doing the work it was elected to do: encourage economic growth, help our returning veterans and fix our education system.”

"I give thanks for this perfect day. Miracle will follow miracle and wonders will never cease."

"With all the worldwide mass extinctions occurring, dare we hope republicans are among them?"
