Look at the link to see that headline (along with picture) on the front page of the St. Pete Times. Screen save it if you can. This is the title when you go to the story:
"AZ shooting targets US congresswoman, kills 6"
"....The sheriff blamed the vitriolic political rhetoric that has consumed the country, much of it occurring in Arizona.
Giffords expressed similar concern, even before the shooting. In an interview after her office was vandalized, she referred to the animosity against her by conservatives, including Sarah Palin's decision to list Giffords' seat as one of the top "targets" in the midterm elections.
"For example, we're on Sarah Palin's targeted list, but the thing is, that the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they have to realize that there are consequences to that action," Giffords said in an interview with MSNBC.
In the hours after the shooting, Palin issued a statement in which she expressed her "sincere condolences" to the family of Giffords and the other victims.
During his campaign effort to unseat Giffords in November, Republican challenger Jesse Kelly held fundraisers where he urged supporters to help remove Giffords from office by joining him to shoot a fully loaded M-16 rifle. Kelly is a former Marine who served in Iraq and was pictured ...
"I don't see the connection," between the fundraisers featuring weapons and Saturday's shooting, said John Ellinwood, Kelly's spokesman. "I don't know this person, we cannot find any records that he was associated with the campaign in any way. I just don't see the connection.
"Arizona is a state where people are firearms owners - this was just a deranged individual."...

The left will use this to expand the police state and weaken the 2nd Amendment.
The MSM can go to hell...this was another leftist, and I’m fed up with their incessant lies (and no, that doesn’t mean I’m going to blow something up or shoot someone...that’s the type of actions liberals take and I’m no liberal).
I wonder if this guy was referring to the Aztlan and Reconquista Mexican KKK nonsense taught in Tuscon schools....the abject Mestizo-Racism just recently stopped by the state of AZ?
Naw....knowing these liberals...probably not that racism. Only white, gringo, anglo can be racists....
“shoot a fully loaded M-16 rifle. Kelly is a former Marine who served in Iraq and was pictured ...”
Let’s see, a fully loaded 20 rd mag would be the same as a
2/3 loaded 30 rd mag.........
Who is going to blame this shooting on global warming?
Don’t be surprised if this does not happen again this time aimed at a Tea Partier or Repubulican.
These leftist are quite insane.
The State is bigoted against members of Congress?
Never mind a left-cook is responsible for the bloodshed, never mind...
It always prove all those who owns and carry guns are evil people.
It always show the “right” of the politic spectrum is evil...
Only them, the cooks ate the left are good and responsible and carrying people, always them.
This is Sarah Palins fault, because the Democrat need a new Boogie Man, They have worn out “It’s George Bush’s Fault”.
They are scared spitless that Sarah will be President.
No, obviously, they are bigoted against white women and white male judges.
Why would a bigot shoot a white person who apparently was pretty centrist?
THey hate us.They will try to Alinsky us to our death.
WE MUST NOT BACK DOWN, NOT BE INTIMIDATED - NEVER SURRENDER ! The TEA Party had NOTHING to do with this. Zero, zip, nada.
In the lib/progressive mind - Sarah Palin is to blame for the Arizona shootings just like Americans are to blame for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
I don’t know if it’s willful ignorance, naivety or an outright attempt to destroy our country. Maybe a combination of the three.
In any case, prepare for increased attacks on our freedoms and rights.
Meanwhile, pick up any newspaper this morning (Sunday) and see how many inner-city murders took place overnight. Hardly a yawn is elicited from the chattering classes.
The Sheriff is a full tilt Olbermann fanatic.
How can somebody this mentally deranged be a sheriff? He needs to be shown the door.
Yo, libtards, name one, just one, conservative who has gone on a shooting spree.
They are all libtards, just like you.
