Sarah Palin had Targeted Gabrielle Giffords with Gun Sights

During 2010, ex-Alaska Gov. and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin targeted certain Democrats -- who were facing tough re-elections -- with gun sights.

One of those individuals was Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Giffords was shot in the head Saturday in Tucson, Arizona during an attack that left a federal judge and a 9-year-old boy dead, as well as many injured. While Palin conveyed her condolences and called the shooting "tragic" on Saturday, her Facebook page last year included a map that featured 20 gun sights targeted by her political action committee SarahPAC. The three red gun sights were individuals who announced their retirements.

Here is the 2010 graffic from Palin's page:
