Justice has been served for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and those affected by the Arizona supermarket shooting in January 2011.

Jared Loughner, the man who shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, killing six people in the process and injuring 13 more, was sentenced to six life sentences plus 140 more years on Nov. 8.

Diagnosed as having schizophrenia, Jared plead “guilty” in August, according to TMZ.

Gabrielle’s husband Mark Kelly addressed Jared in court today, saying, “You may have put a bullet through her head, but you have not put a dent in her spirit, and her ability to do good.” The two were present for Jared’s sentencing.

On Jan. 8, 2011 Jared opened fire in a Safeway parking lot, where Gabrielle was holding a constituents meeting. Since the shooting, Gabrielle has only regained fifty perfect of her vision, her speech is impaired, but overall she has made a remarkable recovery.

Jared will not get the death penalty.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is the punishment fair?
