Public Democrat event with banners and someone walks in and shoots the Dem rep in the head. Gee... I wonder who did it...

I hate to think it, but a part of me immediately thought "right wing extremists" when I read the story, especially since she's a democrat lawmaker.

If that turns out to actually be true, I wonder how the GOP apologists will try to spin this.

In any event thoughts and prayers to her and her family.

Information is slow to come out, but there was apparently at least 10 other people shot as well...

Horrible.

msnbc says six others killed as well:

U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and six others have died after a gunman opened fire at a public event on Saturday, Pima County sheriff's office in Arizona confirmed to National Public Radio.

A witness is claiming one of the people shot was a 10 year old boy.

That article says it took 20 minutes for police and 50 fucking minutes for EMS to arrive. In fucking Tucson?! WTF?

10 BishopX  Sat, Jan 8, 2011 11:43:57am

Yeah, MSNBC is now saying that she is alive and in surgery. There's more in the overnight open thread.

TUCSON, ARIZONA (BNO NEWS) -- U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and six others were killed on Saturday when a gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Tucson, Arizona, officials said.
A spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff's Office said Giffords and six others were killed when a gunman opened fire at the scene, where Giffords was hosting her first "Congress on your corner" event of the year. Others were said to be injured.

"My 1st Congress on Your Corner starts now," Giffords tweeted just before the shooting. "Please stop by to let me know what is on your mind or tweet me later."
Giffords, who is considered a member of the Blue Dog Democrats, was first sworn into office in 2007. She was re-elected to a third-term this past November.

CNN reporting the White House believes a congressional staffer has died.

No kidding, especially since the Mama Grizzly singled out Giffords, placing her on her "Take Back the 20" target list:

In any event thoughts and prayers to her and her family.

And to the families of all the other victims as well. How utterly horrifying.

The most recent updates that I've read said that she is alive, but there are other fatalities, such as a 9 year-old girl. One of Gifford's aids had emergency medical experience, and this is probably what has kept her alive--to this point.
