2. Heart breaking to hear how Mark Kelly descirbed Gabby

injuries, partial blindness, speech and movement difficulty.

Many of the survivors of the shooting that Loughner carried out were in the packed federal courtroom to hear him being sentenced to life in prison. Also present were the families of those killed, who included John Roll, an Arizona judge; Gabe Zimmerman, who served on the congresswoman’s staff; and 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green. Kelly paid tribute to each of those victims in his remarks, before continuing:

“Gabby would give anything to take away the grief you visited upon the Morrises, the Schnecks and the Stoddards — anything to heal the bodies and the psyches of your other victims.”

On Thursday, Kelly was sharply critical of Arizona’s Republican governor, Jan Brewer, saying she was among the “feckless” political leaders who have failed to take on gun control. He cited Brewer’s remark after the attack that the shooting did not “have anything to do with the size of the magazine or the caliber of the gun.”
