BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. RUNYAN. Madam Speaker, along with the rest of the American people, I was shocked and saddened by news of the January 8, 2011 attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, her Congressional staff, Judge John Roll, and her constituents at a public event in Tucson, Arizona.

Congresswoman Giffords is a dedicated public servant who was engaging in the most important role we have as Members of Congress: interacting with and listening to our constituents. January 8, 2011 was indeed a sad day for our Nation and this sick and senseless act of violence in Arizona has no place in our society.

My thoughts and prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords and the other victims of this unfathomable attack. May their families and friends find comfort and strength in knowing the American people are with them in spirit during this difficult time.
