Eleven others were wounded by the gunman who has been apprehended and is being held.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
  The Gunman was there to buy Tea Bags  
For an upcoming event. Fortunately he was a believer in open carry so he had his gun with him when he saw his opportunity.

6 others have died.

  Does Not Matter  
Sara Palin should be ashamed, for she advocated this.

Fox News has blood on its hands today.

  Turns out Sarah Palin is implicated in murder....  
Jim is correct. Gabrielle Giffords is just one of the people Sara Palin turns her gun on with her web site. This is real Terrorism folks. SARAH PALIN IS A TERRORIST! Where is DHS? Why hasn´t this woman been arrested and indited for conspiracy to murder a Congressperson?

  Link to Sarah Palins Hit List...  
This the the web page hit list put out by Sarah Palin. It asks for "Solutions" to these "Problems" from her followers. If you had a list like this with a map with cross hairs on it in your luggage and tried to make it through a TSA checkpoint what do you think would happen to YOU? Yea, slapped in irons and drug off by the FBI in the blink of an eye never to be seen again. How is this not TERRORISM of the first magnitude by SARAH PALIN? This is conspiracy to commit mass murder.

  Sarah Palin Sent Her Condolences  
"For example, we´re on Sarah Palin´s targeted list, but the thing is, that the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they have to realize that there are consequences to that action," Giffords said in an interview with MSNBC.

  It was bound to happen...  
When a certifiable lunatic gathers a following of easily manipulated fringe lunatics, you have to expect that the followers are going to go ballistic at some point.

It doesn´t take a genius to know that you shouldn´t use a hit-list metaphor with a pack of frothing-at-the-mouth, gun-toting extremists.

  Sarah Palin = Charlie Manson  
They both were motivated by politics. Neither was actually at the scene of the killings. Neither personally killed anyone. Both were the driving force behind the killings. Both manipulated others to do their dirty work. Both picked the targets to be killed. Both will tell you they are innocent. Both are crazy, psychopathic murderers with no regret for their action, no sense of responsibility for their actions and no feelings for their victims, Sociopaths.

The sickest part is the Republican Party wanted to put this crazy woman one heartbeat away from the Presidency of the United States. WTF!

  LMAO -  
You´re playing right into the script. Reactionary posturing is the same ridiculousness that leads to both oppressive legislation and irrational (and immoral) violence.

All evidence points towards an imbalanced and scatological individual.

According to Myspace and Youtube accounts, his favorite books were The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf!

And according to former classmates, he was entirely leftist, here´s the link -

Should we blame democrats? Of course not. There will always be mentally ill people, and there will always be people willing to use force. This is an inescapable fact, and the only conclusion it points to is that good people must be prepared to utilize force to defend themselves.

I am willing to make a precarious prediction, however.... this mysterious stranger/2nd person of interest will never be located. Anyone remember the shady handler that accompanied and enabled the underwear bomber to bypass security and board the plane? That´s OK, we´re not meant to.

  It Is The "imbalanced and scatological individual"  
That Sarah, Beck, Bill O´Reilly and their ilk play to. They incite this kind of violence in the "imbalanced and scatological individual" then stand back and disavow any responsibility for their inflammatory rhetoric.

"Unfair and Unbalanced"

If you are "Laughing Your Ass Off" at a mass killing then you are an imbalanced and scatological individual.

Here´s a picture of the 9 year old girl that was killed, isn´t that funny haha!

Here´s a Picture of Representative Gifford

She may be a vegetable after this. Isn´t that funny! You just keep "Laughing Your Ass Off". Very sick.

This is far from "reactionary posturing", even Representative Gifford was on MSNBC News decrying how dangerous rhetoric was going to get someone killed.

After the Health Care vote 10 Democratic offices were attacked by Right Wing Terrorists. Yes, Terrorists, their purpose was to instill fear and terror in those that opposed them for political reasons, the definition of Terrorism.

There is no excuse for the inflammatory rhetoric being spewed by the Right and the Right has no reason to feel "shocked" by what happened. Even John Boner, the new House Majority Leader called for the death of a fellow Congressman and many death threats from his followers flooded in.

The Right asked for it, hell they begged for it and they are culpable in this shooting.

The Tea Party and the Republicans should be labeled "A Terrorist Organization" and put down like a rabid dog. If a Muslim Imam posted a map with cross hairs on it and listed "problem" congressmen and asked for "solutions" and one of the people on this hit list got shot what do you think would happen? If you want to solicit terrorists you are a co-conspirator when one takes up your cause.

7 dead and 6 seriously injured by a guy we know very little about and an unknown motive... and some of you guys are trying to capitalize on this tragedy to make political cheap shots.

Way to keep it classy, people.

Keep your head buried in the sand, that way you will only have to worry about being shot in the ass. If you want the terrorists to keep running amuck we are all in danger of becoming collateral damage, just like Christina Taylor Green. It is known that the shooter was an active member of American Renaissance which is an anti-Semitic, anti-immigration hate group who hated Giffords because she was Jewish and against Arizona´s SB 1070 immigration law. Maybe Fred will let you join their protest at the Funerals.

Ummm. jenkie wasn´t laughing at the mass murder as you have ACCUSED. jenkie seemed to be laughing at how people can carrying on in the aftermath.

ahhh Valk. Don´t let your ideals/politics/etc cloud your judgement, make false allegations, and lash out because you disagree. jenkie made an opinion post but you made a personal attack... Tell me who has the class.

Hey, at least it´s not capitalizing on 3000 murders to trample the 4th amendment and start an unrelated war.

  @MSLGBT viewers  
Wow, I bet all you rabid leftard moonbats are feeling pretty stupid right about now, given that the gunman´s favourite readings included "The Communist Manifesto" and "Mein Kampf", written by atheist and socialist Adolf Hitler. Nevermind the fact that none of his pre-killing ramblings even mentioned Sarah Palin or the Tea Party movement, or that Loughner met and disliked Giffords a year before Palin rose to fame, you´ve got an agenda to adhere to and you´ll be damned if you´re going to let little things like the truth or evidence get in your way.

You´re so right, she should be ashamed. How dare she metaphorically use crosshairs to symbolise target seats for an upcoming election. It´s just like when she said in the same context: "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun"..oh wait, it was Obama who said that. But that´s okay, the anointed one gets automatic immunity from scrutiny by the moonbats, even though the gunman is closer ideologically to Obama than he ever would be to Palin (The Communist Manifesto being one of his favourite reads).

VERY well said and very eloquently stated.
