House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) who just returned to Congress this week after recovering from a shooting at a Congressional baseball practice in June reacted to the Las Vegas shooting saying his position on the Second Amendment is “fortified.”
Rep. Scalise said, “I think it’s fortified it because, first of all, you’ve got to recognize that, you know, when there is a tragedy like this, the first thing we should be thinking about is praying for the people who were injured and doing whatever we can to help them, to help law enforcement.
We shouldn’t first be thinking of promoting our political agenda. And I think we see too much of that, where people say OK, now you have to have gun control.
Well, first of all, look at some of those bills. Those bills wouldn’t have done anything to stop this. I mean the gunmen actually cleared background checks.”
