Thompson Issues Statement on Shooting Involving Members of Congress

Several injured at Congressional Baseball Team practice this morning

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson issued the following statement in response to reports that Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), two Capitol Police officers and a staff member being shot this morning during a Congressional Baseball Team practice in Alexandria, Va.:

“I was at a speaking engagement early this morning when the shooting took place at the congressional baseball practice. My wife, Penny, and I are praying for a quick recovery for Majority Whip Scalise and all those who were injured in this horrific incident. I want to thank the Capitol Police and the local law enforcement officials for their quick response and handling of the situation. Out of an abundance of caution, there is an increased police presence in and around the Capitol and office buildings, which remain open to the public and lawmakers. We certainly owe the Capitol Police a debt of gratitude for how they selflessly place themselves in harm’s way to protect the public day in and day out.”

Looks like the owner of a local newspaper is starting to get his wish ! He is a hard core liberal and was a Bernie supporter. After Trump won the election he said on his face book page that he hoped there would be (blood in the streets) ! Sad that people are that sick and mad about losing the elaction . The really sad part is he coaches children in sports !

Too much violence anymore. The United States needs to do just that and UNITE. Until that happens, all we got is a whim and a prayer.

Tens of thousands of Americans are shot and killed every year, by all types of people. It's sad it happened to a congressman, but is his life any more important than many more killed on the same day in different areas and circumstances?

Why do people with criminal pasts have access to weapons? Why don't the same congressmen and women pass background checks for gun shows and online purchases like 90% of us think are reasonable? Why did Trump and congress just weaken protecting society from mentally incompetent citizens who want deadly weapons?

It's easy to act self-righteous when tragedy strikes, but we are our own worst enemies when we allow lobbyists and greedy politicians to control our destinies against our will.

And if nothing changed after Sandy Hook and Virginia Tech and elsewhere, what the hell makes anyone think we'll change now? Go ahead and pray all you want, but when you're done, get up off of your knees and go look in the mirror. Do you vote for people who don't keep us safe? Do you support lobbies that couldn't care less about what is reasonable? If yes, go slap another bumper sticker on your truck or fly another banner in your front yard letting us all know how patriotic you are.
