Today the House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring the victims and heroes of the January 8 shooting at a Congressional town hall meeting in Tucson, Arizona, in which 6 people were killed and 14 injured, including U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords.

I was shocked and deeply saddened by this terrible tragedy, and my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their families, and their friends and loved ones.

We must never let such incidents affect one of the bedrock principles of our government - namely, that citizens must have broad access to government officials, most especially their elected representatives.
