Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo issued a statement today following the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. Gifford and other individuals were shot in Tuscon by a gunman in front of a Safeway grocery store where she was hosting a constituent meeting.

Bordallo says she hopes for a speedy recovery and that the incident was unfortunate, writing, "This incident should cause us to reflect on how the level of political discourse has been degraded on many occasions. We have witnessed across our country where the expression of views has come very close to inciting violence against those who would disagree with other people's positions.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to Congresswoman Giffords and the others who have been injured or killed in this tragic event."
