Apparently she's in surgery, so she made it through to the hospital.

I'm praying for her survival and that of the other victims. And I hope they catch the nutjob behind this.

All this crap from the wingnuts in the far right was going to provoke something like this sooner or later. There are toop many nutjobs out there. Sad

They do have someone in custody.  Apparently a bystander tackled the shooter on the scene.

Via msnbc, Rep. Giffords is expected to pull through.  18 shot, 6 killed including Judge Jon Roll and one of the congresswoman's aides.

Note:  Rep Giffords was one of the members of congress that was listed with a cross-hairs on her head on Sarah Palin's site.  Palin was nice enough to offer condolences...despite the fact that Gifford isn't dead.

How sure are you that the attacker is from the Right?

Palin has pics of Congress members on her site with cross-hairs over their heads?  Well, if I didn't hate that woman before....

Every time I think I've heard it all, Sarah proves that I really do not know what stupid and heartless is.

She did at some point during the last election.  There was such an outcry that she took them down.

I'm not sure, Peter, but I will be very surprised if he is not influenced by all the talk from the far right wingnuts who seem to think killing opponents is okay.

They do have the person's name, Jared Loughner:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/01/08/AR2011010802631.html?hpid=topnews

Local news descriptions of his MySpage page and a few other things sounds like he is a seriously disturbed person that has picked up on some far right rhetoric as the centerpiece for some of his delusions (e.g. rambling about the gold standard).
