I hope palin gets elected as our next pres. She can then stick one of those large guns up the ass of every anti gun person here. Our constitution gaurantees us the right to bear arms to protect us against a tyrannical government. We have that government in place. Im keepin my guns.
How will guns keep you from any form of government. You will still have to pay your taxes, waving a gun around changes nothing.

Palin almost caused a race riot during her Wink Wink campaign. She advocates guns and shooting.
Time for an arrest, after looking at her PAC Crosshairs map!!!

The man is obviously not right mentally. The woman is a moderate, not a liberal. She also supports guns and the 2nd amendment. Stop trying to make this someone's fault other than the shooter

To all you liberals who want to blame conservatives or the TP......grow up. Don't make this a political issue. It isn't. It is a nut case.....someone with personal issues and a mental health issue......

There is conflicting info as to whether or not she has died but some people have been killed there.
If you will recall her district was one that Sarah Palin had in her cross hares.
Anybody want to bet as to whether or not the gunman was a TP?
That would not be hard to believe as the Lib Progressive REGRESSIVES are the NEW British of 1812 as the British invaded the US and THOUGHT they would take it over, subdue the "rustics" and make slaves of the population....

A lawyer at Fort McHenry wrote a poem called the Star Spangled Banner about the incident.

Maybe, but then the DEMented party is stock full of dolts with personal issues and mental health "issues" also.

That is why Liberalism is called a Mental Disorder or Disease.

Go play with your X-box, fool.
Just announced on FOX NEWS. The "Communist Manifesto" is listed as one of the shooter's favorite books. LEFT Wingers and NOT Right Wingers are among those who embrace the ..."Communist Manifesto"

FACTS that are now being revealed indicate 2 things absolute.

#1 Being that this shooter WAS deranged
#2 This shooter WAS a Leftist!!!

Congresswoman Gifford was,

** A strong advocate of 2nd Amendment Rights
** A strong supporter of increased border security
** Voted AGAINST Ubber Liberal Nancy Pelosi
** A MODERATE/CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRAT.

Now tell me again that this nut sack shooter was tied to Right Wing extremeisism...Make your case!!! No matter how much some want to discount FACTS and no matter how much "SPIN" they try in vain to put on this.....The shooter WAS in fact a "Left Wing" Activist.

You realize the gunman also shot and killed John M. Roll don't you? That would be a BUSH appointed Federal Judge.

So yeah, lets speculate it was a Tea Party member. We know those guys want Obama to appoint a new Liberal judge in his place right?

Morons, all you guys spinning this thing a disrespectful window lickers.
How about we try this, lets all agree that our hearts go out to the victims of this tragedy. Lets put aside the BS for 24 hours, out of respect for the dead.

<quoted text>why speculate and get everyone stirred up before facts are known? Do you really think Sara Palin wanted Gabrielle Gifford dead? Radicals like you who like to stir things up are the real problem. Sara's election jargon was just that. She didn't want Gabrielle to get re-elected.
Jared Laughner didn't want her re-elected either.
