Giffords refused more security, putting at risk those around her, including the 9 year old girl, her own staff, and the public who came to see her, and mere bystanders. She was aware of threats against her.

As others have said, TMZ is atrocious for putting up this poll. Instead, TMZ should be investigating and promoting further research and funding to treat and cure schizophrenia.

I guess Harvey doesn't read the news. This deranged murderer is to the far left of the democrats. His favorite reading includes the Communist Manifesto. He hated Pelosi and hated Giffords because he thought she was too MODERATE.

His drug use probably kicked off his predilection for schizophrenia, as it is known to do.

Harvey, you owe a lot of people a HUGE APOLOGY. You look ignorant, biased, and are a rabble rouser. Nothing new here.

There are a lot of ignorant hate-filled people here, too.

Kitty said: I can't see how you would NOT be able to point fingers at Palin, after putting crosshairs on the US map. This person does not have her finger on the pulse of America! You simply don't do that, if you do, you incite this type of anger.
Prayers to All involved.

Ok kitty, how do you react to obama saying "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun".?

It goes both ways dearie. If you are going to attempt (and that goes for you too who work for tmz) if you are going to attempt to hold Sarah Palin (who you refer to as stupid, etc.) as responsible for a graphic overlay on a website....(one which I would counter is highly unlikely that nutcase jared ever visited btw) then you should also hold responsible barak who said 'If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun'.

I really don't see you being able to hold him to the same standards as you hold palin, which destroys your whole argument because it shows both kitty and the tmz-bot who wrote this poll to begin with as biased.

BTW- I think neither palin nor barak should have posted/said what each did. Nor however do I think either one is repsonible for jared being a communist, nutcase, freak who hates most everyone. Sometimes crazy is just crazy and you can't blame others for a murdering psychopath who is hell bent on killing as many as he can.

63: Now I have read it all from the Palin ignorants. You are actually blaming the congress woman taking a bullet to the head. Ridiculous.

For all you getting on TMZ for including Palin to the shooting.

In defense of TMZ...plenty of newspapers, articles, TV shows are talking about the connection between Palin and the shooting, it's not just TMZ, you fools. Everyone sees it.

The "incites more violence" poll is WAY off. Both the Republicans and the Tea Party should be way, way, way ahead of Democrats! After all, the Republicans are the ones that act like spoiled, rich, entitled children. So much for the credibility of TMZ surveys.

This tragic incident should not be blamed on the easy access to guns. Over here in Europe we have no legal access to guns and the results are that home invasions are widespread. They are conducted by people from Eastern Europe. Open every newspaper here and you will find my statement supported.

It doesn't matter that they paint their T-72 and put license plates on them. They are still caterpillar-tracked which make them easy to spot and it means that we go into hiding when they come so they can steal items only. It would however be nice if we were allowed to defend our homes instead. A Gattling gun on our roof would not increase crime here in Europe as it is not easy to take with you.

PALIN IS A ****ING IDIOT. THE HEALING HASN'T EVEN BEGUN AND PALIN IS USING THIS FOR HER OWN GAIN. LETS MAKE IT CLEAR, GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE, PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE. LETS SEND PRAYERS AND LOVE TO THE VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES. AND FOR THOSE (PALIN) WHO WANT TO USE THIS AS A SOAP BOX, YOU DESERVE ALL THE BACKLASH YOU GET

Palin clearly has nothing to do with this, just another nutjob, however, the fact that Americans love this delusional woman and McCain chose her as a running mate is sooooooooo scary to the rest of Americans who ARE sane and people around the world who laugh at the intelligence of many americans, well, THAT is sad, I just pray that Americans wake up and don't let this gun loving toting imbecile anywhere near the whitehouse.

Not sure about AZ but I think people with felonies are prohibited from purchasing weapons, pot is a misdemeanor.

Your poll is flawed from the start simply by the questions you ask and the available choice of answers. Get someone who doesn't hate the political right and the Constitution to rewrite some questions that are fair.
There is a vast difference in automatic and semi-automatic weapons. As a previous post states, automatic weaponsare not legally available to the general public. Automatic weapons require a special permit, signed by the county sheriff and or a federal peace officer. I know because I have owned fully automatic weapons. You also have to pay a $200.00 transfer tax each time the weapon changes owners.
And might I remind readers that the Discovery Channel Bomber, the biology professor in Alabama that killed 3 people and murdered her brother 20 years earlier, and this wack-a-doodle, were ALL left-wing, liberals with decidedly leftist agendas. Can you say Democrats!!!
But, like a friend posted to me last night, blaming Sarah Palin, Republicans, or gun ownership for this tragedy is like saying that spoons caused Roseanne Barr and Rosie O'Donnell to be over weight!!!
HE picked the path he want to follow.
Pray for the victims, their families and America. It is needed more now than ever.

"Violent revolution -- ever ok?"

How in the world, can any United States citizen suggest "NO" to this question??? Our country was founded as the result of a "necessary", violent revolution. It must be easier to forget, when we are constantly re-writing the history books, or dismissing them altogether. Violent revolution brought necessary freedom to North America, and laid the groundwork for the current rights and liberty which we are afforded today.
