Something has to be done about these crazed gun toting Baptists.
A gunman opened fire on a group of congressional Republicans practicing baseball in Alexandria Wednesday morning, wounding a senior GOP lawmaker and multiple other people.
Rep. Steve Scalise, Louisiana Republican, was shot in the hip. Several Capitol Police officers were also said to be victims. Mr. Scalise, as the House majority whip, has protection by U.S. Capitol Police.
The gunman, armed with a rifle, was reportedly shot by a member of Mr. Scalise’s security detail, who had been hit before returning fire.
“As I was getting into the car with one of my colleagues, Jeff Duncan, there was a guy who walked up to us and asked if it was Republicans or Democrats out there. And it was just a little odd and then he kind of walked toward the area where all this happened,” the Florida Republican said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”Steve-Scalise-aides-shot-baseball-practice-Virginia
