|House Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot in a mass shooting.|
GUN VIOLENCE IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES. THE INEPT REPUBLICAN LEADERS OF CONGRESS NOW FACE A CHALLENGE. A MEMBER OF THEIR PARTY WAS SHOT IN A BRUTAL TERRORIST ATTACK.
NOW WILL DONALD J. TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS FINALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?
This happened in the city of Alexandria, Virginia. The city is two miles from Washington, DC.
A terrorist struck lawmakers at the Congressional Baseball event practice.
According to witnesses, people were shot. No claims of responsibility in this event. No names of the victims. No motive. The FBI was on the scene as well as Virginia commonwealth police officials.
But word on the street, the top ranking Republican lawmaker was one of the causalities.
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot in Virginia. The House Majority Whip was one of the victims injured by a lone gunman..
Donald J. Trump, Mike Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards were notified.
Scalise was under fire for appearing at a White extremist conference. He was one of the main speakers at David Duke's event. He apologized for his appearance at the white extremist event.
The last lawmaker shot in 2011 was Gabrielle Giffords. That happened in Tucson and she survived the shooting at point blank range. She was pro-gun until she felt the bullet hit her in the head.
Now Republicans and the NRA are now at a crossroads.
This happened at an event of bipartisanship.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) explains to the junk food media, this was a massacre.
At least up to five to ten people were shot by a lone gunman.
MORE DETAILS ON THE MATTER. DONALD J. TRUMP AND MIKE PENCE WILL ADDRESS THIS CONTROVERSY.
EXPECT THE BLAME GAME TO OCCUR.
THERE ARE NO MORE THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. IT'S TIME TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT GUN VIOLENCE IN THE UNITED STATES.
