Congressional baseball shooting inspires bill to weaken DC gun rules

Rod Rosenstein Congressional baseball shooting inspires bill to weaken DC gun rules

Schumer said Wednesday's shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., and four others at a baseball field in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Va., was "a senseless act of violence" that has left members of Congress shaken. Loudermilk noted that one of his staffers keeps a 9mm handgun in his vehicle when in Georgia but does not have a firearm with him in the D.C. area because of legal restrictions in the city. "On a rare occasion, I'd have my gun in the glove box or something, but it's going to be in my pocket from this day forward".

"Let me say this: I think we need to do more to protect all of our citizens".

McAuliffe's comments drew fire immediately from Katie Pavlich, a Fox News contributor.

Schumer, D-N.Y., the Senate minority leader, said he will attend the 56 annual Congressional Baseball Game on Thursday night with Republican and Democratic congressional leaders in a show of unity. "Not a day for politics".

Yet the Second Amendment argument was nearly unavoidable, with the notable wrinkle that the alleged shooter had made numerous anti-Trump statements on social media, appeared angered by Republican politics, was an ardent fan of Sen.

He also was accused of inciting violence when he warned that the "Second Amendment people" among his supporters might find a way to stop his opponent, Hillary Clinton, from rolling back gun rights.

He delivered a brief address from the White House Diplomatic Room in which he denounced the shooting of a top House Republican and others as a "very, very brutal assault". The hearing was canceled.

They're plodding ahead, hopeful for action but pragmatic enough to know that the latest shooting doesn't dramatically alter the dynamics of their uphill battle.

"This shooting is an attack on all who serve and on all who participate in our democracy", said former Rep. "This will be business as usual, they will soon be saying that the answer is more guns and new freedoms, not new laws".


"The President entered the room, spoke with Scalise's family members and sat by his bedside with Mrs Trump", Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, describing the scene in the intensive care unit as emotional.

"I told him they were Republicans", Duncan recalled.

Republican Representative Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot in the early morning fusillade of gunfire, and several other people, including members of Scalise's security detail, also were wounded. And with one of their colleagues in critical condition, many were muted on Wednesday.

Later, after New Orleans police confiscated weapons during the Hurricane Katrina crisis in 2005, Scalise wrote a bill that would prohibit future confiscations during public emergencies.

In Congress, Scalise has maintained a top rating from the National Rifle Association.

Gun control advocates, already on the defensive, insist they're not abandoning their efforts in Congress or state legislatures. "This radical attempt by the Obama Administration to unilaterally rewrite the Constitution will launch our nation down a slippery slope as the White House shows a risky disregard for the rights and freedoms guaranteed to every American". "It would be a quixotic and empty attempt to disarm criminals that would seriously interfere with the rights of millions of law-abiding citizens".

In total, five people were shot during the Alexandria shooting, including the attacker. On Wednesday, as Republican congressmen were practicing for their annual baseball game against the Democrats, lunatic leftist James Hodgkinson entered the baseball field in Arlington, VA and fired up to 60 shots from a high-powered rifle and a handgun, attempting to assassinate as numerous GOP elected officials as possible.

In the aftermath of the horror that played out on a Virginia baseball field, we can - and should - step back for a day, maybe a few days, and remember amid all the hateful talk that we are, as the president rightfully reminded us, one nation and one people.
