Investigators are piecing together what led up to a shooting Wednesday in Virginia that left five people injured, including a congressman.

In reacting to the events, Alabama Media Group Columnist John Archibald writes that the shooting was like an attack on America itself. He discusses this and fundamental flaws he sees the Alabama Constitution.
