GOPers stage 'mock shooting' of Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is my representative. From Daily Kos here.

On Tuesday, a group of Florida Republicans went to the shooting range -- and used pictures of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as target practice. Among the attendees, her 2010 Republican opponent, Robert Lowry.

Yesterday, Wasserman Schultz released a statement reacting to those who pretended to shoot her:

There is nothing light or funny about pretending to shoot someone. At a time in our country when people are bringing guns to Town Hall Meetings and a preacher is calling for the death of our President, I find this type of action serious and disturbing. Tonight I am going to have to talk to my young children about why someone is pretending to shoot their mother. Trivializing violent behavior is the kind of extreme view that has no place in American politics.

Indeed. It's simply unbelievable.
