  2. Gabrielle Giffords is a good Congresswoman and she cares deeply about people. I hope she makes it through. It is a very sad day for the others that died right after being shot at. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

  4. any lawyers around?

    Can sarah Palin be sued in a civil case seeking financial damages for her "target list" as well as the guy who ran against giffords for having target practice with giffords pic in a commercial and at a fund raiser?

    I understand they can't be prosecuted but what about seeking financial damages as instigators/ accessories via their rhetoric etc

    from my understanding as a non lawyer civil suits are a different thing altogether

  6. It figures that an intelligent lawmaker who actually does some good gets gunned down by a right-wing whackjob.
