​Sen. Claire McCaskill released a statement through a spokeswoman about fellow female Congress member Rep. Gabriell Giffords, who was shot at a constituent event in her district in Arizona yesterday.

Find the statement behind the cut, but we think McCaskill's succinct tweet from Saturday afternoon accurately sums up how we're all feeling after the shocking shooting:

I feel sick to my stomach. Praying.

Here's McCaskill's prepared statement, sent by her spokeswoman Saturday: 

I pray for Rep. Giffords, the other victims, and their families. I'm mad and deeply saddened that this violence is an attack not just against these innocent people, but also does real damage to all things good about our country and our democracy. And no criminal punishment will be able to fix it.
