Bernie has made a statement saying the shooter volunteered on his campaign.

But seriously, there's a reason people generally don't advocate for gun control based on party affiliation, as opposed to universal controls for everyone. I'm sure Chicago and LA gangs aren't full of Christian white boys.
Yeah in the bigger scheme of things the political bent matters very little. The fact that it's not a brown is more important in terms of placing some responsibility on the absolutely divisive and dangerous divide that has been created.

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

I'm curious when the last time individual gun ownership made America the greatest country ever was. The 1800s?

Can we also reason that slavery made America the greatest country ever?

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

Rep. King ties baseball shooting to violence ‘from the left’
https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...=.fc047566262c
Quote:
Lawmakers reacting to the shooting Wednesday assailed the anger simmering in the country, and one Republican congressman tied the shooting to what he said was anger from the political left.

“America has been divided,” said Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who, in suit and tie, stopped by the crime scene to pray and was viscerally angry about his colleagues being attacked. “And the center of America is disappearing, and the violence is appearing in the streets, and it’s coming from the left.”

When asked whether he thought the shooting was politically motivated, King said he did not know why the gunman did what he did, but said: “I’m really not that interested to tell you the truth. If he were on his way to the morgue, it wouldn’t make me sorry at all.”

Law enforcement officials have identified the shooter as James T. Hodgkinson III, 66, of Belleville, Ill. Police have not released any motive for the shooting or tied it to any political beliefs.

I think it was the last time a black man was President.

It's odd to call change through nonviolence a "deeply held American value" when our country was founded on violent revolt that could not have been accomplished through nonviolent means.

But there are more republicans than that in the house. However, that number may still somehow be connected to GOP members in the house. It's just not the right number.

There seems to be a deep and abiding bipartisan consensus that political violence against white men is wrong and should be condemned no matter what.

That's 239 according to wiki. 216 wouldn't be enough for a majority. Maybe this nutjob is just bad at math. Or he's not a partisan.
