Gun debate under Trump tested by congressman's shooting

Sen. Rand Paul was on the field in Alexandria Va. when the shooting started early Wednesday morning

Throwing more taxpayer money at security is the Republican way of telling the American people that they are never going to fix the real problem and that the possibility of getting gunned down is just a fact of life in the United States of America.

Malloy said, "It sounds like, from what I heard, the weapon that was used could not be acquired in the state of CT now". In a sick twist of irony, these are the people who promote the NRA agenda i.e. more access to guns.

"I was confronted with questions about stricter gun control laws immediately", Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., told Newsmax, "and I said that when the Founding Fathers created the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment to protect the right to keep and bear arms was meant to have just as much authority as the First Amendment that guarantees freedom of speech and press". "We worry about this every day about all of our citizens". However, he has assumed a position on firearms that is far from conservative, and he often reiterates calls for increased gun control. A chip in the shoulder and a gun in the hand is the recipe for disaster and we hear of it every news cycle.

"Evil is real, evil exists and it makes no sense that the good can not protect themselves against evil", said Loesch.

Upstate New York Republican Representative Chris Collins echoed a similar sentiment earlier in the day. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said of the police officers who shot James T. Hodgkinson, the attacker.

Members of Congress like Loudermilk and Collins can't think of any other solution except gun escalation, because to do anything other than escalate would mean admitting that they've been wrong about the role of guns in society for years (that role being that owning any and all guns conceived of by humankind, no matter how technologically complex, deadly and created to kill as many people as efficiently as possible, is an inalienable right foreseen by short-life-span having men in 1791).

Republicans said the shooting didn't show new gun laws are needed - and some suggested lawmakers arming themselves was a better solution.

The gunman, who was killed by Capitol Police, was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of IL.

Pride Fund to End Gun Violence is a Political Action Committee (PAC), organized for the goal of raising and spending money to elect pro-LGBTQ candidates at the federal and local level who support sensible gun reforms.

Americans in Congress and all walks of life shouldn't have to live with the threat of gun violence.

They're pushing ahead in a harsh environment.

U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, a Republican from Rochester, may have fueled that delusion, however inadvertently, when he told a WWJ Newsradio 950 interviewer that the terrifying moments he and two of his MI colleagues spent in the gunman's line of fire had "changed everything as I know it forever". Trump quickly signed it.

He also said gun control organizations have held back passage in Congress of legislation giving states with concealed weapons laws reciprocity in all other states.
