In a brief statement Sunday morning, House Speaker John Boehner said flags on the House side of the Capitol in Washington will be flown at half-mast to honor the slain aide of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Gabe Zimmerman. Thirty-year-old Zimmerman was among six killed during a shooting rampage that left the Democratic congresswoman among 13 wounded. AFP PHOTO/Paul J.

Jan 12 (KATAKAMI / SPEAKER.GOV) — On Wednesday morning, beginning at around 10:00 AM, the House will consider a resolution condemning the brutal attack on Representative Gabrielle Giffords as she met with constituents in Tucson, AZ.  Speaker John Boehner says the resolution, which can be found here, will also recognize the bravery of those who “helped subdue the attacker and save lives.”

Says Boehner:

“The House will lock arms tomorrow and – as one body – condemn the brutal attack in Arizona and express our profound condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed and wounded.  We will recognize the bravery of those on scene whose courage helped subdue the attacker and save lives – including that of our friend and colleague, Gabrielle Giffords.  And as the resolution itself reads, we will reaffirm our belief in ‘a democracy in which all can participate and in which intimidation and threats of violence cannot silence the voices of any American.”  (*)
