The surgeon just said that Congresswoman Gifford was shot 'through and through'. That the bullet went right through her brain.

He is very optimistic that she will survive, but obviously there could be brain damage.

I'm no saying the whole party is responsible, but I wouldn't be suprised if he is a Tea Party member. This is sad, and I hope she makes a full recovery .

Federal Marshalls now confirm that Judge Roll has indeed died from his wounds....

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer will be having a news conference soon, as well as President Obama. The protocol is for the Governor to wait until after the President so that is probably the order they will go in.


Fox News has put together a profile of sorts on the shooter from his Facebook page, Youtube etc......they will be reporting that shortly.

If Giffords does have brain damage, I would think Arizona Governor Jan Brewer would replace her until there is a special election. Not sure if her Astronaut husband is interested in filling her seat.

Media will certainly discuss that next week. Poor choice on whoever did that, hopefully it played no part in the shooting. SarahPAC.com is also down.
Conflicting reports on whether she is alive or dead.
I hope that this shooting was not a consiquence of her political affiliation. But I fear it is. The language esposed by Palin, Bachman, and other of their ideological extrmist kin is irresponsible and dangerous.

This is sad and terrible...

Killing of a child = life in prison without parole. That's how it should be.

I didn't know a kid was shot. God, this horrible. Lethal injection won't be enough for these heartless ****s. This is why we need to go back to hanging. String these bastards up right in front of the Capital Building.

Congresswoman Gifford...

3rd Term Congresswoman a part of the Blue Dog Coalition.
2nd Amendment advocate...
Written and writing strong legislation against the violence and cartel issues on the US/Mexico border.

The shooter on his Facebook page said...."Goodbye Friends"....that is all they have said.

I've been following this all day. We don't know what the motive was, but the sinking feeling we all have is that it was obviously a political assassination.

This is not how we do things in this country.

I'm been sick to my stomach all afternoon. That's all I have to add. That and may God help all those unfortunate victims.

Words cannot express.

Our prisons are practically hotels. Life in prison is not a harsh enough punishment. Either death penalty or torture the bastard every week during his "life in prison" term.

Not going to happen. Besides, those sentenced to death spend years on death row as they appeal their sentence in an effort to try to either get a new trial or serve life in prison.

Hmmm...he was apparently tackled. I wonder if he was going to shoot himself but didn't get the chance?

The House Majority Leader Cantor's office has met with the President and Hoyer so it looks like they will probably be putting out a statement soon as to what they will do about her seat at this time.

This is disgusting. It is sad that people become so messed u that they belive violence wll solve all the problems when it ostly works to unite. While I have feared this may happen with all the hated speech lately. until confirmed we should not blame a whole group of peope since violence will meet violence if rumors get out of control.

Giffords interview with MSNBC last spring after her office was vandalized. She talks about threats and the Palin PAC map with gunsights.
