House Majority Whip Steve Scalise Among 5 Shot at Baseball Field; Suspect Is Dead

A gunman opened fire on Republican members of the congressional baseball team at a practice field in Alexandria, Va., on Wednesday morning, using a rifle to shower the field with bullets that struck five people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. I don't think you can read too much into a lone man's deranged actions. But I'll bet Sen. Rand Paul wishes he hadn't tweeted this last year as he was cowering in the dugout as his friends and colleagues were being hit.

Donald Trump considers Scalise to be a "true friend" and a "patriot"

I think the important thing here is that no one's Second Amendment rights were infringed upon. Right, congressmen? 

Unlike Trump, Sen. Bernie Sanders does not like the idea of being affiliated with violent lunatics in any way whatsoever.

yes, let's not forget who has repeatedly called for "2nd amendment remedies", and opposes, against the majority of the country, and even the majority of nra membership, basic, common-sense legislation for background checks and closing sales loopholes.

it's inappropriate to discuss taking steps to reduce gun violence immediately following such a horrific tragedy (or any other time)...
