Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton called for an end to “vitriolic political rhetoric” on Monday. Dayton made the comments after a moment of silence for the victims of a mass shooting in Arizona. Six people died when a man tried to gun down Representative Gabrielle Giffords. Giffords was shot in the head and remains hospitalized.
Dayton said the shootings were “a threat to all of our constitutional rights and the security that we all depend upon.”
The Governor said that security at the Minnesota Capitol building was being evaluated, but noted that the shootings in Arizona took place on a street corner by a supermarket.
