Colonel (ret.) Bill Badger was shot in the back of the head when a man opened fire at a January 8, 2011 "Congress On Your Corner" event with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords outside a Safeway in Tucson, AZ. His first person account recalls the scene when the shooter attacked and demands that measures be taken to stop the gun violence in America. On January 8, 2011, U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and eighteen others were shot during a constituent meeting held in a supermarket parking lot in Casas Adobes, Arizona, in the Tucson metropolitan area. Six people died, including federal District Court Chief Judge John Roll; Gabe Zimmerman, one of Rep. Giffords' staffers; and a nine-year-old girl, Christina-Taylor Green. Loughner, a 22-year-old Tucson man who was fixated on Giffords, was arrested at the scene.
