Yesterday, a bullet shot through the window of Congressman Raul Grijalva's Yuma office and there is no shortage of speculation as to who's responsible.

The bullet was found a day after Grijalva announced he was calling off his request for outside businesses to boycott Arizona.

It also comes a day after a federal judge swiped the balls from SB 1070, making it a rather impotent law.

Some feel the shot was fired by someone in the anti-SB 1070 crowd, angry Grijalva called off the boycott since SB 1070 -- no matter how weak the law may now be -- took effect yesterday.

Others believe it was someone who supports SB 1070, upset the law was stripped of its nuts, and looking to take it out on a vocal crusader against the law.

A member of Grijalva's staff, however, told us yesterday "it could have been a couple of kids."

We find that to be a little unlikely, given the current political climate, but what do we know.

We want to know what you think: who fired a bullet through Grijalva's window?

Vote -- and see the results of yesterday's poll -- below.
