WASHINGTON — Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) issued the following statement condemning the attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and members of her staff today in Tucson:
"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."
