U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Gifford is in critical condition after being shot by possible Sarah Palin supporter

Jared L. Loughner is the raging lunatic who went a shooting spree yesterday at a supermarket in Arizona. In is senseless wake of destruction he left 11 wounded including Dem. Rep. Gabrille Gifford. The shooter also killed 6 including a 9 year girl and Chief Judge John Roll of the U.S. District Court for Arizona. Police recovered a 9mm hand gun with a extended clip at the scene of the crime which was used by Laughner.

According to Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik 22 year old Laughner has been writing anti Government rhetoric on the Internet and also had previous run ins with the law. Laughner rallied against Government "Mind Control" and literacy on his Myspace page. The FBI and local authorities are looking for another person of interest that was seen with Loughner just before the tragedy.

Rep. Gifford just won a hard fought fight for re election in November against a Tea Party Candidate. At some of Giffords political rallies Tea party members were reported being there caring fire arms. On Sarah Palins Facebook page she literally put a target on a map with Rep. Giffords congressional seat in the cross hairs. In March of '10 Giffords home town office was vandalised because of her support of the Health Care Bill.

This is what happens when people don't use common sense and use the law to hide behind their ignorance. When the rhetoric is so anti anything sooner or later you are going to get a nut job who cannot distinguish what is reality. If you want to let people show up at political rallies with guns, put targets on Reps. backs and say it's your right, fine. When Government officlas start getting killed just don't pretend like you don't know why.


  1. Cross hairs; This is what sets off people with mental disorders. Only persons with mental disorders are capable of doing things like this. I believe Sarah Palin and her ilk appeal to people like this Jared fellow. They get people like Jared to do their 'dirty deeds'.

    O.K. I got that off my chest.

  2. I just wrote a follow up post about this and how Glenn Beck wanted to kill Michael Moore.

  3. Hi I found your blog from our discussion on blog catalog about the killings. I wonder if there is a considerable amount more to the killings than political rhetoric. But I definitely think that people like Palin and Beck should tone themselves down and recognise there persuasive powers.
