House Majority Whip Steve Scalise + 2 cops + aides (?) reportedly shot

CNN's blasting a headline on the front page. Another rep there reports 50 gunshots with Scalise and aides hit, no reported fatalities and shooter may be in custody.

Twitter speculation and finger-pointing started immediately. It will obviously result in gun policy talk, the decorum of which probably depends on what the shooter's motivation and background winds up being. Early word is he didn't get hit as bad as Giffords, so that's good if true.

Also, definitely need to have a discussion about mental health, preferably after the GOP gets done gutting a trillion dollars from health care for poor people.

Maybe now better and more restrictive gun legislation will be on the table

The gun reportedly could have been an AR-15. So....

The incoming Twitter storm is a stone cold lock just by virtue of it being Scalise. I don't care if the shooter was Betty White.

Re: House Majority Whip Steve Scalise + 2 cops + aides (?) reportedly shot

Rand Paul was there, just recounting events as he saw them. Says two security only there because Scalise was on the ball team, they were both shot. Shooter hit also.

Kind of hearing him take the "good guys with guns" line a little, but then again they are police/security and likely stopped the shooter, so that seems fair.

Arming the players seems to be a reasonable solution.

Why would anyone want a rodeo clown fired?

Pretty sure a harsher punishment is to force them to do the job longer

LOL at "politicizing".

I guess conservatives should model the liberals, who said we needed to see the facts before blaming anyone in the Gabby Giffords shooting......

oh wait.
