"Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head Saturday and an aide and federal judge were killed when an assailant opened fire outside a grocery store as the Democratic lawmaker met with constituents, officials said.

C.J. Karamargin, a spokesman for Giffords, said the congresswoman was in surgery as of 1 p.m. local time and that an unspecified number of Giffords staff members were injured in the shooting. Karamargin said he had no other information on the conditions of the injured or on the circumstances of the shooting."

The latest official report is that she is in critical condition.

Yeah, I can see where PZ was going with that. I still want to know more about the gunman.

Undoubtedly.

So why don't I just go ahead and kick that off. After the Virginia Tech massacre, I advocated that mentally unstable people should be placed in a nationwide database that prevents them from purchasing guns. Felons and bat sh*t insane people have their rights revoked.

I heard that rant... Basically he blamed everyone from Sarah Palin, to guns, to right-wing agendas, to free speech... anything and anyone beside placing the squarely on.... the shooter.

I'm just surprised the guy had to be tackled to prevent him from shooting any more than the 19 that he did.

She was a national representative holding a public event.... where were the cops???

You'll be sure as hell that if the mayor was having a meet and greet there'd be cops all over.. and, if they didn't see the weird guy rushing up to the front, and stop him before anything happened.. They'd definitely be able to stop him before he shot 19 people.

and they wouldn't have had to tackle him either.

Surprised that he fired off that many rounds before someone stopped him, or surprised that someone had he balls to tackle him when he clearly had a complete disregard for human life?

They were in a grocery store parking lot, not on the steps of the Pentagon.

Hard to say for sure without photographic evidence, but more than likely he'd be dead.

Guarantee that there's a conspiracy theory festering right now. It's not enough that a deranged conspiracy theorist murdered a ton of people. There also has to be a counter conspiracy theory alleging that the shooter (a conspiracy theorist) was really a CIA operative sent to discredit conspiracy theories, which of course is the real conspiracy theory.

I give it a week.

Some people are going farther, calling for Sarah Palin's arrest for "inciting murder." If you ever read the Huffington Post for kicks, it's not so funny right now.

Agreed. I'm fairly vocal about how unqualified I think Palin is, but the allegation against her is absurd. It's a really low political ploy by the Left to use this tragedy as a political attack. Pathetic.

Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos
