    "U.S. Rep Steve Scalise (R-La.), the House Minority Whip, has been reportedly shot at a community baseball event in Virginia, according to reports.

    Scalise's wounds may have been in the hip and do not appear to be life-threatening, CNN reports."

    Reports coming in is that he was shot by a gunman using a scoped rifle. One of his staffers is being reported as being shot in the chest while reports are coming in that Scalise was shot in the hip.

    Before Mag's and the hysteria Left start going off on gun control, you have to understand that due to the reported nature of the gunman using a scoped rifle that this was a targeted shooting.

    Reports are indicating the gunman was shot by capital police and may be deceased

    Be careful what you say on this Mag's it is serious and there are trigger words that can land people in trouble.

    I know you are sarcastic, but this is serious and since the media and the Left has ginned up so much discourse with Radicals trigger words will possible flag someone. Remember even this forum is monitored.

    Mag's this was a targeted hit. Just like in cases in Europe where firearms are banned, someone who is determined will find a way to commit an act of this sort with a firearm no matter what regulations are in place.

    Multiple Republican representatives were present including Rand Paul. Preliminary reports indicate the gunman asking if they were Republicans or Democrats.

    This practice was publicly available indicating this gunman was aware of the event.

    They have been stirring up the more radical elements and this is possibly an arrow fired in their so called "Resist" movement. We will have to wait to see the background of this individual including his social media posts and associations, but I do have a feeling that it was not random or a Tea Party member.

    Holy cow. This is what happens when people come unhinged. The initial reports will come from the media as the shooter being a whacked out tea partier and Republican, but I'd be willing to bet that the shooter is someone who is deep into the Democrat rhetoric and hatred that they are spewing.
    We shall see.

    Hey, I'll give the guy credit for taking action on something he believes in rather than just bellyache about it. Now if I did that I would expect to either win or die in the process and I wouldn't say that he won.

    Let's see:
    Shakespeare's in the park depicting the Murder of Trump

    Rhetoric spoken at the Women's March

    Berkeley riots

    Griffins depiction of a severed head

    "Resist" movement harolded by the likes of Maxine Waters

    Riots at inauguration

    Black Lives Matter

    And this isn't even what the media has been saying
