Sarah Palin issues statement on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords shooting

palin-gi.jpgAfter news broke that Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot at an event on Jan. 8, many people, many were issuing criticism to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin over her past call for supporters to "take aim" at Democrats. Rep. Giffords was one of the Democrats "targeted" by Palin's campaign.

Perhaps in an effort to combat the criticism, Sarah Palin posted a statement on her Facebook page on the tragic shooting.
