Boehner and Ohio Republicans on Giffords Shooting in Arizona

Speaker Boehner:
   “I am horrified by the senseless attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and members of her staff.  An attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve.  Acts and threats of violence against public officials have no place in our society.  Our prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords, her staff, all who were injured, and their families.  This is a sad day for our country."

Rep. Latta:
“I am deeply troubled by this horrific act of violence against Congresswoman Giffords, her staff, and the other innocent bystanders.  Marcia and I want to extend our thoughts and prayers to the Giffords family and the families of all of the victims.  Senseless acts such as this have no place in our society.” 
Rep. Johnson:
  “This is a sad for our country. Our thoughts and prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords, her family, staff and friends as well as other victims of this senseless tragedy.”
