Gabrielle Giffords was shot at Safeway a few hours ago. There has been no word from the hospital about her status but the phrases "point blank" and "in the head" have been mentioned. They are saying 12 other people have also been shot. I think everyone is just in shock right now.
Everybody please keep the injured people in your thoughts, PPK!

I just read that, how horrific. It's such a shame how someone can ruin the lives of so many. Sending lots of prayers.

She has been confirmed dead. They are saying there are 5 people have been killed and 6 wounded. They have the man who did it in custody.

Quote:
With an endorsement record that now rivals those of many established Washington politicians, Sarah Palin has re-launched her "Take Back the 20" campaign. Its aim — pun intended — is to unseat Democratic incumbents who supported last year's health care reform package H.R. 3200, often referred to by Republicans as "Obamacare."
Earlier this year, Palin drew sharp criticism for featuring a map on her web page riddled with crosshairs targeting Democrats in vulnerable congressional districts.

Tucson's Gabrielle Giffords is among the 20 Democratic incumbents whom Palin intends to use for target practice.
Giffords and her Republican challenger Jesse Kelly are now neck and neck, according to the latest polls. Palin's endorsement of Kelly came as a surprise to many.

Kelly's photo is now prominently displayed on Palin's "Take Back the 20" website, just below the crosshair-covered map titled "We've diagnosed the problem. Help us prescribe the solution," a chilling innuendo.

I stand corrected: a representative from the hospital has reported that she is alive, in surgery and in extremely critical condition. Everybody who has been injured is in critical or serious condition as well.
I guess nobody really quite knows whats going on at this point.

Yeah, the NYT says that she was rushed to a trauma center and probably shot 'point blank range' in the head.

By the way, wiki says that she is pro-gun rights.

This is so unbelievably upsetting.
Another article said that some of the other injured people were her staff members, and the gunman shouted the names of his victims. It's not verified but if true it would really show intent to get her.

Also chilling is this ad for an anti-Giffords event in June -

Why isn't she in prison? This is far worse than what SHAC did.

That's now gone from her website (as of an hour ago), but you can still see it in cache.

Just read about this. Absolutely horrible.

I already hated Sarah Palin, but seeing her gun sights chart in this light takes it to a whole new level. What is wrong with people?

Jesus. I don't want to jump to conclusions about the shooter's motives and influences were, but that image is forking awful.

Okay, that's some ill-advised damage control.

I've been watching this and I am just so, so sad. I don't want to jump to conclusions as to who shot her (and the others) or why but all of this Sarah Palin bs is wrong and was wrong when she first started it. I'd go on a rant about how much of a classless dipshit Palin is but in all honesty, right now I'm just really hoping that Giffords pulls through and doesn't suffer any mass brain damage. My heart goes out to her, her family and to the others who were wounded and killed.

This is just awful. I just googled this and came to the story on NPR. If there was ever a time not to read the comments, it's now.

I read a couple of comments on the yahoo story and had to force myself to stop. Yahoo's always bad, but the hate-mongering was about to ruin my day. Don't read the comments!

This was right down the street from me. My brother used to work at that Safeway. I'm glued to the news and hoping none of my friends was there...

If we were a sane society this would spell the end of the Tea Party. We're not. And it won't.
