Gotta Watch: Witness to shooting; victim born on 9/11; suspect's online writings

'Real, real hero' - Joe Zamudio rushed outside the Tucson, Arizona, grocery store when he heard the gunshots that took down 20 people, killing six of them.  Here, he tells CNN's Carol Costello about two people who helped subdue the gunman. One was an elderly woman. The other was a man who had been shot.

'We were four people, now we're three' - One of those killed in Saturday's shooting was a 9-year-old girl who went to Giffords'  event to learn more about government. Here, her father talks about his daughter, who was born on 9/11.

Rants of currency, grammar - Some classmates are speaking out about the 22-year-old identified by law enforcement sources as the alleged shooter in the Tucson attack. CNN's Nick Valencia reports on what they've said, plus what the alleged shooter said online.

    Mr. Zamudio is a FINE example of a CCW holder who used incredible restraint in not drawing his handgun to help subdue the creep. All CCW permit holders should take as many airsoft Force-on-Force classes as possible to get used to operating under stressful conditions, to ingrain the response deep down in your subconscious. (It only appears to happen too fast to think, because those who say so, have never trained in such a manner) You will be taught methods that are also taught to undercovers and plainclothes about surviving a robbery encounter as well an active shooter. No square range training can offer that close and that realistic of a training environment as force-on-force.

    If it wasn't possible to survive a holdup, or a home invasion, why would they be teaching disarm and combatives methods to our brave men and women in uniform?

    Who is surprised by this horrific event? yes initially but after the dust settles we all know that the right to bear arms has ALWAYS led to this type of hatred motivated behavior. when government officials send mixed messages of guns and ammo as solutions to problems why the surprise? these type of repercussions have always and will always be the final solution for the deranged. like lincoln and kennedy hatred is easier to feel than love to an unhealthy mind.
