TULSA, Oklahoma – Oklahoma Congressman, Republican John Sullivan, calls Congresswoman Giffords a friend.

"She is well liked in Congress on both sides of the isle. You know, she was just doing her job with constitutes in her district," he said.

"Unfortunately I think in this country, we kinda are at, politically, at a boiling point," he said. "We've all talked about this, this could happen someday and it has."

Congressman Sullivan said, given Saturday's tragedy, they'll likely have to re-think how they do things and take extra precautions.
