UPDATE: Huffington Post did a story in March 2010 about certain Democrats Sarah Palin targeted for tough re-election battles ... using gun sights on a map to point them out. One of those politicians was Rep. Giffords.

The late Giffords was a huge proponent of gun rights. Calling for a weapons ban as a result of her murder is disrespecting her life's work.

OK Sarah!

Are you happy now? Your "gun happy" politics have finally resulted in a Democratic congresswoman being shot - maybe killed. Your "Christian" hate mongering has finally found a mark. You ought to hide your face in shame - and pull out of the public eye - FOREVER! THERE IS NO PLACE FOR YOUR VIEWS IN A CIVILIZED SOCIETY! No one deserved to be shot for their political views!

Sarah Palin didn't pull the trigger but since she had a hit list with Gifford on it then she is the instigator by telling people to lock and load. Can't something be done about her for her role in this senseless act of violence where innocent people have been hurt!!!!

The news conference confirms that Rep Giffords is alive and they are optimistic.
It also confirms that a SMALL CHILD was killed in the shooting.
Hey Joe B - WAKE UP!!
Sarah Palin put Rep Giffords in the crosshairs on her map of representatives to get rid of in 2010. She pretty much put out a "hit" on the Concgresswoman. She has a small child's blood on her hands. She is the one that is pathetic.
Bye, bye any chance at 2012 sister Sarah - now "git back" to Alaska and STFU.

Gosh, I hope you're happy, Sarah. Just what were you thinking when you posted her photo with crosshairs? You are like the anti-abortion zealots who received a large punitive damages award after they posted Internet ravings that a jury found were intended to encourage violence against abortion providers. You are a disgrace.

She was in Sarah's crosshairs. That means one thing coming from the wolf shooter from Alaska.
