Suspect James Hodgkinson Dies After Shooting At GOP Baseball Practice; Rep. Steve Scalise Is Wounded : The Two-Way : NPR
A gunman opened fire during an early morning baseball practice for Republican members of Congress on Wednesday, reportedly firing dozens of shots at a field in Alexandria, Va. At least five people were wounded, including Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.
What a story to wake up to this morning. The FBI is taking over the case since the attack involved violence against a federal officer.
I hope everyone is ok. No lives lost yet . . . except the perp.
Quote from Spidey's mom
Are you kidding me? I never expected this kind of statement from you Elvish.
You do understand that elected officials or power grabbers have been responsible for many of humanity's worse atrocities? Their actions do have consequences especially re the mentally ill etc who processes things slightly differently. You cannot keep imposing or taking and not expect that people will not rise up , especially those who have little outlet or capabilities to express themselves appropriately. Gun violence in America isn't an anomaly, it's an expectable outcome. When you marginalize people, then suppress their responses, dams burst. You have a small population of second amendment followers who are supported by a well funded arms manufacturing industry who have imposed their greed induced legislations against the wishes of the many. The entire rest of the Western world is wrong and only Americans are right. That's why we are the only one with a second amendment, right?
