I am sure that she did not think her rhetoric would lead to what happened to Rep. Gifford and there lies the problem, she does not think, and it did.
I missed the statement from the gunman where he said he did it because of Palin. Can you post the source please so I can read it?

LOL... MSNBC... People in federal prisons lose their right to vote I believe... So much for your source...
I've been in the NRA for years... I will voice my opinion (good or bad) where the government is concerned... it's called freedom of speech... I don't need to make bombs... Do you have any idea how easy it is to get dynamite?
I don't know the story of how he got to vote, only what was said.

But a person doesn't need dynamite. That's what makes people like McVeigh, anti-government nuts, and citizen militia groups dangerous. Any University student that pays attention knows how to make things that go boom. McVeigh used nitromethane and ammonium nitrate, and look at the damage and death it caused. I once thought I had gotten in trouble because I inadvertently told someone how to make one using household chemicals (I'll never give that type info out again).

. Tea Party Leaders on Fox News and Talk-radio are encouraging Americans to use "2nd Amendment Remedies" to take out Politicians they DO NOT LIKE

. Conservatives do not have exclusive rights to guns

. So, any nuts, including New Black Panthers, Illegal Mexicans, Pot Lovers, Fat People, The Chronic Unemployed, The Sex-Deprived, The Homeless may want to heed this kind of advice: Shoot their perceived enemies....

It's a word you Liberals that you like to use without regard of the situation.. This is a deranged Person with a weapon, thats it, call him whatever you want. You must not be watching TV, this guy had problems for years. Blame the Liberal school system for not dealing with him.

Can you prove McVeigh was a registered republican? Hell no you can't... People like you are the problem... Making comments and backing them up with nothing... It's called talking out of your ass... The only thing you're an expert on!
Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist liberal! The same kind of people that make up the democratic party these days...
How do you like that?
You might want to STFU and red through these posts... All over the internet and the media people are trying to blame the "Tea Party" (Sarah Palin) for something she, nor the "Tea Party" had anything to do with...
From the assassination of Lincoln, Dr. King, the Kennedy brothers and on and on...
The only person responsible for this is the man that pulled the trigger...
"Never let a good crisis go to waste"... Is all people like you really care about...
You just don't like the fact I pointed out how stupid you hypocritical fools are is what burns your ass up...
Don't forget about the liberals attempt to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981. John Hinckley was just the fall guy.

Sorry to hear about this horrendous act and the lives lost.
As our friends and enemies question America "sticking to their guns", our politicians and wannabe silly ones like Palin need to bring down the rhetoric with their "gun" language and consider their words carefully.
Another sad occasion in the history of America.
Obama said "you need to punish your enemies". Do you think the president might need to consider his words and change his rhetoric too?

We need to end this myth that all liberals want to take “real Americans” guns. I am proudly Liberal, DO NOT try to take away MY right to bear arms!
I agree with carrying concealed weapons. Statistics have proven time and time again that states that allow this have far fewer crimes.
But with rights come accountabilities and responsibilities.
As an American I have every right to DEMAND that gun shops are regulated and sales are controlled by a mandated process. Oh Sorry! That’s big brother….NOT!!! It’s called being morally and ethically responsible.
If someone is on antidepressants no they should not own a firearm. Plain and Simple.
I understand people are on these after surgery. There needs to be a process for this as well. And most definitely, if you are turned down by the military on mental issues, NO FIREARMS! Period. If you have a criminal record, NO FIREARMS! Period. I do not believe for one second that this will prevent criminals from retaining their weapons of choice however, WE need to be armed; the police need to be BETTER armed.
The majority of Liberals do not want to amend the Constitution to eradicate Amendment 2.
Deal with the real issues of corrupt politicians, falsehoods, fear mongering, hate speech and tell the truth regarding actual facts and the numbers to back them up. No more opinion with the news. Give us the facts! Regardless if this was politically driven or not, people are starting to see how the BS over the last 3 years has made this country into a Sybil. This is not what our Armed Forces are dying to defend.
THIS COUNTRY NEEDS TO WAKE UP! A NINE YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL WAS JUST MURDERED BECAUSE THE PERP WAS ALLOWED ACCESS TO GUNS!
Why?
Who is willing to speak to her family and defend the argument of no regulation to firearms access because the big black scary man is on office or the evil, Marxist, socialist, nationalist, communist, fascist government is to blame for all of your ills and want to take away your guns no matter how mentally unstable you are ? I can assure you it will not be Sarah Palin. All of a sudden her map was misread? It was modeled after a surveyor’s map? Seriously? If anyone defends her you are scum. We may have different political views, but I wouldn’t wish harm on you and I sure as hell would not put your name on a map with rifle sites while saying lock and reload.
How would she feel if this was Willow or Trig?
No matter what some idiot will say that the media is unfairly going after her. Somehow this will bring her even more press time than she deserves. She will make it about her. Not the victims. She will cry about how she is being vilified and her supporters will agree with her. Poor Sarah. She, along with every “talk show” host will try and make this the government’s fault or President Obama, or the Liberals.
They will never take responsibility when it comes to anything. It’s always it’s not my fault. And the other parties are no different.
Why aren’t the teabaggers fighting for veterans or children? Simple. All they care about is a delusion that somehow their country was destroyed only when President Obama took office. They failed to notice the past 8 years. Or were to coward to say anything. While I have my grievances with Obama after 2 years, I certainly will ALWAYS say my voting for him was the best move for this country. Not Mcain and HELL NO Sarah Palin!
NOT NOW – NOT EVER!
I love your post. Particularly your first paragraph including being morally and ethically responsible. I own a Glock I carry to protect myself from assault. I believe in my right to carry it, and use it if necessary to defend myself. But I also believe in regulations on them. How they are sold and who they are possessed by. I also am concerned with the very high number of them floating around on the streets in the hands of criminals and known gangs.

I'm sorry son. I like to use it for Muslim extremist, but apparently conservatives like to use it simply in conjunction with the word "muslim."

I considered muslim extremist somewhat deranged. But hey, I guess you people qualify a "bad" terrorist from a "good" one based on his religion, country or some other qualifier the rest of the country isn't privy to.

Actually she should be charged with making terroristic threats. Conspiracy also. Under US law, a co-conspirator doesn't even have to be aware of the criminal actions which they are a party to.
Did you by any chance stop and give ANY thought to what you just suggested? Noboy's going to arrest Sarah Palin and if they did we see a surge of these type of political killings. I pray Congress Woman Gifford lives and makes a full recovery but you can absolutely forget about Sarah Palin being arrested.

As a matter of fact,I'd be real concerned about the Obama Administration doing anything stupid. Do you have any clue as to what kind of hell blaming the right could spark? I hate to bring race into this but any punitive actions taken by a Black President would only further fuel the fire. Be VERY careful what you wish for friend....you just might get it!!!

She supported the health care bill and her office had the door busted afterwords. There were huge protests at her office and a man with a gun was arrested at another of her appearances.
IN other words she was smart, pro-active, forward. Blessings on our Giffords and her fast recovery; in my heart I hold the office open for her, even though of the opposing political alliance.NOBODY shoots our government reps without repercussions that come again and reverberate often.

First of all, I do not live in Chicago. Look at a map. Or is that too difficult for to read? Do you require special ones with rifle icons on them?

Second, azzwipe? That’s the best that you can come up with?

Third and most important, you’re an idiot.

Have a good night.
