"The right of the people peaceably to assemble..."

News

In a tragic irony, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was charged with reading the First Amendment on the House floor this week as the U.S. Constitution was read aloud. (emphasis mine)

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Best wishes for a speedy recovery for Rep. Giffords and all those injured in Saturday's shooting.  My sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to all those who lost a loved one today.
