Jared Loughner
-- the guy who shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords -- will plead guilty Tuesday for last year's mass shooting attack in Tucson, AZ that left six dead and left 13 others injured, including the congresswoman ... this according to reports.

Loughner, 23, will enter the plea in U.S. District Court in Tucson, says the Los Angeles Times. Psychiatric experts have determined that Loughner is sane enough at this time to comprehend the nature of his charges and enter the plea.

It's is unclear if Loughner will plead guilty to all or some of the charges brought against him ... in exchange for a longer prison sentence and to avoid the death penalty.

The shooting took place back on January 8, 2011. Loughner opened fire in a Safeway parking lot, where Rep. Giffords was holding a constituents meeting.

Giffords, who was shot in the head, is slowly recovering.

On FOXNEWS.com last night, the story there said that this nutjob-"panty waste" is going to plead guilty to one count. So, you didn't "break" the story, TMZ.

I say we put him in a cage with Holmes, toss in a couple of shiv's...and whichever one comes out alive...we set fire to and roast some marshmallows.

I am so sick of the media not mentioning the other victims. She was not the only one who died, there was a little girl among many other victims!
