The left is so predictable. As Rahm Emanuel, Obama's former chief of staff once said, "never let a good crisis go to waste."

The poor victims of the shooting in Arizona were not even cold before the left started the blame game. Apparently they think Sarah Palin, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, etc are responsible for inflating the rhetoric that triggered this psychopath to start shooting. Rediculous!

It doesn't take much effort to find crazy hate speech coming from the far left fringe promoting the killing of the above mentioned conservatives. There are crazies on both the left and the right. Always will be. We cannot, as a nation, let these people take our freedoms.

The left, in The Sun on Jan.,11 are promoting stricter gun controls. As predicted. The Sun also printed a column blaming those on the right for this shooting. Please folks, rise above partisanship. It was a mentally sick person that did this. Not a gun. A person behind the gun.

We all have in us the ability to do good or evil. We have the freedom to make the choice. Evil is alive in this country. Always will be. Shame on those that put the blame on others based on political beliefs and shame on this paper for exploiting this tragedy.

Dean Tate,
