The attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has shocked the nation. It's also set off a national debate about whether the shooting was the work of a lone lunatic or whether the current vitriolic political climate created the situation that encourages political violence. We talk with our reporter in Tucson and with two Nevada political commentators to discuss the partisan atmosphere in Nevada.
