No Democrats of Greater Tucson meeting today in observance of this anniversary, the 7th, since that day when the shooter Jared Lee Loughner killed 6 innocent people and wounded 13 others, including then-CD 8 Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, and her District Director, former CD 2 Congressman Ron Barber.
UPDATE: If you want to eat out and help the Foundation, here’s a list of restaurants donating a percentage of their sales today: https://www.facebook.com/events/328146027684593/
