Baseball practice shooting raises debate over gun control

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise on Capitol Hill in 2015

How a person with multiple arrests can still legally possess a gun. Imagine what would have happened if it had been regular citizens on that field with no security detail in sight? According to Paul, "had they not been there, it would have been a massacre". Mr Hodgkinson, who most recently lived in IL and worked as a home inspector, died at the hospital as a result of his injuries.

"If grown GOP were scared this am, can one imagine the terror kids had at Sandy Hook?".

Donnie Rowe and James Dubose are accused of killing two prison guards early Tuesday morning as they were being transferred between detention facilities southeast of Atlanta.

In 2016, McAuliffe and Democrats joined with Republicans in a rare legislative compromise on gun control. New York Rep. Chris Collins lurched in the other direction, telling Buffalo's WKBW he would, going forward, "be carrying (a licensed firearm) when I'm out and about".

In the face of it all, McBath said simply: "I have hope".

McAuliffe repeated that he was not there to discuss gun control measures, though he noted he would stand up for the safety of all.

As for the calls from Republicans to empower more people to carry weapons, Watts said, "if more guns and fewer laws was the best solution, we would be the safest country in the world".

For many gun advocates, the gun is an important aspect of one's identity and self-worth, a symbol of power and prowess in their cultural groups.

McAuliffe's comments drew fire immediately from Katie Pavlich, a Fox News contributor. Giffords said in a statement that she was "heartbroken" for Scalise and the other victims. The Virginia governor's claim was quickly challenged by a reporter, who said that it sounded like "a big number". "Not a day for politics".

Yet the Second Amendment argument was nearly unavoidable, with the notable wrinkle that the alleged shooter had made numerous anti-Trump statements on social media, appeared angered by Republican politics, was an ardent fan of Sen.

Iowa Congressman Peter King said, while stopping by the shooting scene in, that "the center of America is disappearing, and the violence is appearing in the streets, and it's coming from the left" after it was made known that the suspected shooter was a volunteer on Senator Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. The hearing was canceled. He did not even know or care about the specifics of this case, only that it was a good opportunity for him to promote the gun control agenda.

Just before the shooting began, Duncan and Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., said they spoke to a man they now think was Hodgkinson. "He said, 'Okay, thanks, ' turned around".

Terry McAuliffe said Wednesday he was not the day to talk about gun control, then proceeded to talk about gun control hours after the shooting of Louisiana Republican Rep. Steve Scalise in Alexandria, Va. He is in critical but stable condition at George Washington Hospital. Because the last time it was tried - the 2013 bill sponsored by Sen. There is also no gun registry in Virginia, and there is no such thing as a concealed carry permit for long guns.
