You can read the details here,

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40978517/ns/politics/?gt1=43001

but short synopsis-

22 yo Jared Loughner shoots Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and kills Federal Judge John Roll, and a 9 yo girl. Weapon was a handgun with an "extended magazine."

Giffords was shot through the head, but is apparently still alive.

Expect the anti-gun lobby in AZ to seize on this incident, since you currently have some of the least restrictive carry laws in the nation.

Really a sad event.......Thoughts and Prayers go out to all involved, except the worthless shit that did the shooting! I also heard that there may have been a CCW citizen that shot at the shooter.

According to high school friend Caitie Parker.

“He was a pot head and into rock, like Hendrix, The Doors, Anti-Flag. I haven’t seen him in person since 2007 in a sign language class. As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal and oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy. He had a lot of friends until he got alcohol poisoning in 2006 and dropped out of school. Mainly a loner, very philosophical,” she wrote.

Favorite books listed in his YouTube account included Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf.

It looks like he was so left wing that he felt Giffords, who called herself a Blue Dog Democrat (former Republican), was too conservative. I'm waiting for the media to start blaming the Tea Party or conservatives on this one. This also halted the health care repeal vote today. 6 dead, 13 wounded. Haven't found anything about the CCW guy-but he was tackled by 2 bystanders.

AZ has

the death penalty. This guy sounds like a suitable candidate. Numerous witnesses to the crime and a mutliple homicide, including that federal judge.

Sad incident. Although I may not agree with the congress woman on politics I hope she makes a full recovery. Hope everyone involved can find peace after such a cowardly and insane act.

I don't like Giffords

but that's definitely not the way to go about things. I don't condone or support assassination of public officials at all, but if it's what somebody feels is right, killing little kids in the process is an absolute no go. This guy has a special place in hell waiting for him.

was a CCW. Giffords is still in critical condition. Yes, this guy has a special place in hell waiting for him, hopefully like CW said he'll get the death penalty so we can give him a priority ticket.

A special place in hell for him and the instigator of the tragedy. Take him out back and let him meet his maker TODAY!
