Arizona Congresswoman Shot


January 8, 2011
U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head outside a grocery store in Tucson while holding a public event, Arizona Public Media reported Saturday.

The 40-year-old Democrat, who was re-elected to her third term in November, was hosting a "Congress on Your Corner" event at a Safeway in northwest Tucson when a gunman ran up and started shooting, according to Peter Michaels, news director of Arizona Public Media.

At least nine other people, including members of her staff, were hurt. Giffords was transported to University Medical Center in Tucson. Her condition was not immediately known.

Giffords was talking to a couple when the suspect ran up and fired indiscriminately from about four feet away, Michaels said.

The suspect ran off and was tackled by a bystander. He was taken into custody. Witnesses described him as in his late teens or early 20s.

Prayers for Rep Giffords and her family; the young suspect is at least in custody. Initial reports appear very bad.

The fact of the matter is this; now, all LEGAL American gun owners WILL be blamed and WE will suffer because of the actions of one crazed individual, that at 1st glance, appears to be nothing more than a despicable anarchist and is being rumored to be a fan of Ron Paul, Jesse Ventura and Alex Jones.

The hate mongering from the radical, loony right is responsible:

Giffords was on Palin's 'hit list': McCain defended telling voters to 'reload' and 'aim for' Democrats

I'm waiting for more facts. One report says the doer was shot, not tackled, by a bystander. A legal CCW citizen perhaps?

This guy is obviously a severely disturbed psychotic person and had nothing to do with the Tea Party, but the Progressive blogs are already blaming them and Sarah Palin.!
How freaken pathetic can you get!

Correct, the last info is that, though shot in the head, she has not died.

And TF, you're correct about that. That's the nexus that will be DEM-created.

Mal: pretty pathetic. But you would expect nothing less from the largest purchasers of tinfoil in the continental United States.

And, as the tolerant, understanding, accepting, non-judgmental Left writes:

"Words do not kill. That is why the lies of the Bush administration didn't kill 100s of thousands of Iraqis and Afganis. That is why 4000 GIs are dead and 50,000 are maimed. Lies never killed anyone. If you believe that you are a Republican. The Right caused this by their hate and lies. Do not think that Sarah doesn't have blood on her hands."

It's Bush's fault and Sarah Palin's fault. BDS & PDS.

No..it's the fear mongering, hate inducing and violence encouraging philosophy of the right. And you know this!

"Among his long list of favorite books in his YouTube profile are Mein Kampf, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha."

Palin, Bush, and BZ drove him to read and take to heart that leftist crap!

According to medical reports this morning, the bullet traveled through Congresswoman Giffords's temporal lobe. Damage will include impairment to her speech and affect centers.

As one who lives with a husband with brain damage due to hemorrhage, I know that tough days are ahead for Giffords and her family.

Latest reports indicate that Loughner doesn't have any ties to the Tea Party Movement.

I love the looney liberpukes argument that its the Rights fault... The entire Tea party, the entire Republican party...

But, the eco-terrorists, the vandals, the bombers, the islamic radicals... Please don't paint with a broad brush... Hahahahaha..

This guy was a lefty PERIOD. His favorite books were the communist manifesto, and Mien Kampf... Oh and he was a fan of flag burnings, Never seen any tea party or SP or GWB burn flags or like communists....But go ahead liberpuke/progressifucks keep digging your own hole.

Before the smoke had cleared, the left, libbers, the morons at Daily Kos and the moonbats at the DUmp, Democratic Underground, were blaming the TEA Party, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Ted Nugent, The N.R.A. and everyone on the Conservative right, and saying that they were the ones responsible for Gabrielle Giffords being shot.

Well, of course it was the TEA Party and 2nd Amendment supporters that caused this. We ALL know, the TEA Party movement is over-run with 22 and 23 year old anarchists that list The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf on their preferred reading list. And we ALL know how much influence the TEA Party and Glenn Beck have over the youth of America. Right?

The truth about Jared Loughner, and his apparent far left liberalism, his desire to be an anarchist and his overall dissatisfaction with America has begun to come out, and nowhere is there a hint of him being a TEA Party member, a Beck fan, a Palin supporter or any of the utter nonsense being spewed by the loons of the left.

TF: correct. And I should care to point out, if one reads KOS and a few others, there are a HOST of Leftists who are multiply-pissed at Obama and Demorats in general because they believe their ilk are INSUFFICIENTLY LEFT for their own Leftist tastes.
