Man wounded in Tucson shooting arrested at meeting
A victim in the mass shooting north of Tucson attending a special town hall today was arrested after his outburst at another man who spoke in support of gun ownership.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department said it arrested Eric Fuller, 63, who was wounded in the knee a week ago in the shooting rampage that killed six and wounded 13. He was being held Saturday for alleged threats of intimidation and disorderly conduct and will undergo a mental-health evaluation.
The incident took place near the end of a taping of ABC’s weekly “Town Hall” with news anchor Christiane Amanpour.
The program, which airs Sunday and is called “Tragedy in Tucson: An American Conversation Continued,” reunited many victims, initial responders to the shooting scene and witnesses. Open to the public, the forum at a Catholic church was designed to promote conversation and healing a week after the grocery-store shooting.

Man wounded in Tucson shooting arrested at meeting
But…wait. I thought the TEA Party, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck were the evil Jedi mind masters in this tragedy? I thought their followers, and Conservative NRA members were the cause of hatred, death, threats and other assorted acts of random violence?
Say? You don’t suppose that this J. Eric Fuller is a secret fan of Palin and got his *make a threat* order from some super-secret mind control project do you?
According to the story, Fuller is in custody and will undergo a mental-health evaluation. I think that is a very good thing to have happen, because we ALL know, SANE people do NOT make a threat against the life of another human being.
I also wonder? Since this Fuller guy is a fairly libber activist in the Tucson area, if he is found to be mentally unstable, will the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, and their marvelously efficient Sheriff, Clarance Dupnik, think the threats and mental instability serious enough to place Fuller on the list of people that don’t need to own a gun? Or, will it be swept under the table until Fuller snaps and carries through on his threat?
Much as it was when the threat was Jared Loughner?

Meet Eric Fuller
You might be seeing a lot of Eric Fuller over the weekend. He’s one of the people injured in Jared Loughner’s shooting rampage, taking rounds in the knee and back. He’s also a vicious bigot, and because he’s elderly and a military veteran, the Left is going to fall in love with him.
Fuller gave an interview with the Democracy NOW radio show, in which he said of the Tucson shootings: “It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle, and the rest got their first target.” Presumably he’s not talking about Judge John Roll.
“Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled,” Fuller ranted on, “senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls.” I didn’t realize the Second Amendment called for all those things. They must be lurking in one of the penumbras or emanations.
And John Boehner’s part of Murder, Incorporated now? Even by the frothy standards of liberal hatemongering, that’s quite a stretch. At least the fevered minds of the Left can say that Palin, Beck, and Angle are feisty and confrontational. Boehner apparently inspired a murderous rampage by gently taking that gavel from Nancy Pelosi’s hands.
Fuller’s emergence as a beeping smoke detector amid the right-wing haze of the “Climate of Hate” has already drawn praise from Soros operative Eric Bohlert, who issued a Twitter taunt to Michelle Malkin and Andrew Breitbart: “Countdown to smearing wounded veteran from Tucson massacre begins… now.” Gosh, I hope Michelle and Andrew don’t mind if I go first.

Ladies and Gentlemen, there are many mentally ill, mentally unstable, crazy, whatever you care to call them, there are many among us that are NOT playing with a full deck. Eric Fuller is one of those individuals.
Fuller then swiveled in his chair, raised his camera and took a photo of the pro-gun speaker, muttering, “You’re dead,” according to Joel Tranter, who was sitting behind him.
“I told him, ‘You need to be respectful. You need to calm down,’” Tranter said. “He said, ‘What’d you do, vote for this guy?’”
As police officers approached to escort Fuller outside, he turned and shouted at the audience: “You whores!”
That is the open rantings of an unhinged leftist. He’s threatening someone that had nothing to do with the shootings in Tucson. Didn’t he hear the campaign speech, uh, sorry, the call for unity and the words of wisdom and condolences spoken by Barack Obama at the recent memorial service?
Maybe he didn’t get his free campaign T-Shirt, uh, oops, Obama memorial souvenir.
Fuller, who works as a signature collector for political initiatives, was about 10 to 15 feet away from Giffords, talking to her volunteers, when the shots erupted on Jan. 8. He said earlier this week he was hit by a bullet when he dove to the ground to play dead. He decided that because he didn’t have any medical training to help others, he walked to his car and drove himself to the nearest hospital.
Well, there you go, typical moonbat libber logic; Hooray for ME and SCREW YOU!
