The NRA wants you to remember that ...

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Earlier today, Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head while attending a meeting of her constituents outside of a grocery store in Tucson.

Twelve other people are said to be seriously wounded or killed. Among the dead are a 9-year old child, an aide to Rep. Giffords and a federal judge.

Fortunately, earlier reports that Giffords had died were inaccurate and her outlook is now being reported as "optimistic". She is apparently now responding to commands from her doctors.

The suspected shooter shooter is said to be in custody, and was identified as Jared Lee Loughner of Tucson, Arizona.

Jared has his own Youtube channel. On it, he spouts paranoia, talks of inventing a new currency and complains about the illiteracy rate among people living in Giffords' congressional district in Arizona.

There was only one picture online that I could find of Jared Lee Loughner.

Apparently, along with pistol-toting rampages, Jared enjoys a good crossword puzzle.

Here, Jared displays his own literacy skills at the Tuscon Festival of Books.

He also has a charming Myspace page.

The good news is that he has (1) LOVE note.
The bad news is that it's from Wayne LaPierre.

He was such a nice right-wing boy.
