Arizona shooting update: Gabrielle Giffords, Sarah Palin crosshairs video interview

In March, Sarah Palin created a graphic poster announcing Congress members whom she felt needed to be removed from office, primarily based upon their votes on health care. Shortly after the health care vote passed, Gabrielle Giffords’ office was vandalized. Gabrielle Giffords spoke to MSNBC immediately following the Sarah Palin gun crosshairs photo included in the “Sarah Palin’s Target List” and spoke about the image and expressed her concern for the growing discontent between political parties. Gabrielle Giffords was one of 20 people who were targeted on Sarah Palin’s list.

When asked if she were fearful regarding the political tensions in Arizona she said she wasn’t but also spoke about the heated contentions going on. She also referred to Arizona as an area where the “Tea Party movement congregates and the rhetoric is incredibly heated.” Gabrielle Giffords elaborated and addressed Sarah Palin’s crosshairs graphic.

“We’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list, but the way that she has it is depicted is it has the crosshairs of a gun site over our district,” Gabrielle Giffords continued. “When people do that, they’ve got to realize there are consequences to that action.”
