Aaaand, of course, nothing will come of this.
Nothing happened when George Tiller was murdered.
Nothing happened when a Becked-up lunatic with a car full of guns was stopped on the way to shoot up the Tides Foundation.
So, no, nothing will happen now.
What WILL happen is, on Monday, the usual right wing suspects will say that;
a) Loughner is liberal
b) liberals are trying to shift the blame away from themselves by blaming it unfairly on Republicans
c) Giffords brought this on herself because she voted for a bunch of things that angered "real Americans"
d) looser gun laws in Arizona would have prevented this
All of which are complete bullshit.
tl; dr America is comprised mostly of trash who would gladly shoot a thousand nine year olds to advance their tribal political agenda two inches.
The narrative that's already emerging is not so much what you're talking about but more "this is Gifford's fault because she had no security. If only there had been security, this wouldn't have happened."
If Republicans had brown skin and lived in another country, they would be condemned as terrorists and Predator drones would have already started bombing them. Lucky for them, they're white and our neighbors so we'll just chalk this one up to some lone nut and let them off the hook.

Also, Maddow, work on your delivery, sheesh. Stop smiling when you satirize, you're like Tina Fey on Weekend Update. And by that, I mean you suck.
