Alexandria shooting

Congressman Scales, aide and two officers shot. Not a lot of details in this horrible event. Prayers for all.

Of course anti-gun kook left-wing whacko Governor Terry McAuliffe ran to the microphone and started babbling about gun control. So I'm listening to this guy talk about gun control and he says "There are too many guns on the street. We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence". Yes, I played the tape back and confirmed.

A that rate... in less than 96 hours there will be no human life in America.

hahaha, I just commented about that on the "talking about nothing thread". Huge discrepancy in the number that he quoted! I couldn't believe it when he said 93 million, my mind was already running calculations on that...we'd all be dead in a few days!

And he said it more than once I couldn't believe it. As the Liberals start again pushing for gun control I hope Trump steps up and signs an executive order mandating national reciprocity immediately. We have a president that can trump all that nonsense from the left.

So I'm assuming none of the senators/congressmen carry a weapon or had one in their gym bag?

From what was said from one of the sources was that because they were at the field many of them didn't even have cell phones to phone it into 911. Luckily there were 2 Capitol police with the congressman from LA. who intervened and engaged the shooter.

He said it 3 times and when a reporter questioned that number he lowered it from 93,000,000 to 93. That's less then the number of people killed in car accidents daily.

I have a feeling this is going to cost us a huge amount of money. We have 100 senators and 435 representatives and the first chance they get they're all going to vote themselves 24/7/365 security.

LMAO....He did utter 93 million people a day and then a few seconds later you can hear his phone ringing in his coat.

Maybe it was a staffer or his wife calling to ask "WTF did you just say, 93 million" ??

Beep beep beep...That's him backing off of that statement and quick...

Barry Loudermilk wants concealed carry for lawmakers in DC after Scalise shooting

One Republican lawmaker believes that concealed carry reciprocity for members of Congress should be considered as part of possible security upgrades after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot at practice for the congressional charity baseball game early Wednesday morning.

Under Rep. Barry Loudermilk's proposal, members who are allowed to conceal carry a weapon in their home state would be able to in Washington. Loudermilk, R-Ga., said the problem is that the nation's capital does not recognize concealed carry licenses from other states.

"There are several things to look at," Loudermilk said. "First of all, if this had happened in Georgia, he wouldn't have gotten too far. I had a staff member who was in his car, maybe 20 yards behind the shooter... who back in Georgia carries a nine millimeter in his car. I carry a weapon. He had a clear shot at him. But here, we're not allowed to carry any weapons here... Most of us are here in D.C., so how are you supposed to have it here?"

"I think we need to look at some kind of reciprocity for members here," Loudermilk said. "But also we need to look at security detail. If Scalise hadn't been on our team, it would have been really bad."

Scalise warrants a security detail because he's on the GOP leadership team.

"We aren't any more special than anybody else, but we're targets," Loudermilk said. "This is exactly why there's a lot of fear of doing town halls at this point."

Republicans have been promoting gun reciprocity bills for years. Most recently, Sen. John Cornyn and Rep. Richard Hudson introduced legislation calling for nationwide reciprocity that would require states to recognize concealed carry permits from other states. As of now, 41 states have at least partial reciprocity laws.

Earlier Wednesday, Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., said that he plans to carry a handgun at public events moving forward.

"If you look at the vulnerability, I can assure you from this day forward, I have a carrier permit. I will be carrying when I'm out and about," Collins said in a radio interview in Buffalo.
