    US Republican politician Steve Scalise and several of his aides were shot at a congressional baseball practice in Virginia, police say.

    Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks said a gunman opened fire on House Majority Whip Scalise and others on Wednesday morning, wounding five people.

    Scalise is in stable condition, Fox News reported.

    The shots were reported on East Monroe Street in Del Ray, Alexandria police said on Twitter at 7:30am.

    Shooter was most likely a rabid liberal that the msm pushed over the edge with their rhetoric.

    This event may feed the cries for more "common sense gun control measures ".

    Another story I read said "rifle" and 50 shots.

    As usual with these sorts of things, everyone is waiting for more info so they can say the attempted murderer is from the other side. USA in the Obama / post-Obama era

    I just now saw on live tv the VA governor blame "gun violence" and "gunshow loopholes". What an asshat.

    I'll bet the shooter is:


    • White
    • Male
    • On the DNC payroll

    I perused his FB page.

    The man is a rabid nutcase. He most likely would have been happy to shoot up the dem practice as well.

    No. Wrong. First of all, he asked the players whether they were D or R (as per one of the R guys shot at). Also, he rabidly hates Trump and Republicans but espouses support for D causes and D lawmakers on his page. This was an attempted political mass assassination.

    If the guy from "leadership" wasn't there, they would have had no armed security and several would likely have been killed. Two cops returning handgun fire at 30+ yards was at least minimally effective against this rifle (what kind? unknown at present) armed domestic terrorist.

    I'm not so sure. He was a deranged Bernie guy. These folks hate dems, who stole the nomination, as well as reps.

    I guess dying from his wounds defines minimally effective?

    If the guy was a Sanders lover, and listened to Sanders' hatred of republicans, why not hold Sanders responsible for inciting violence?

    Doesn't fit the narrative.

    A hit with a pistol from 100-some feet under great stress is some damn good shooting.

    Lucky too, since the cops shooting probably were wearing vests and those are useless against rifles (doubt that they also had SAPI plates).
