My thoughts on the ultimate plan: when none of the proposed laws prevent further massacres only disarming all citizens will satisfy the anti-gun monster.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise said Friday on “America’s Newsroom” that he doubts proposed “red flag” laws or stricter background checks would have prevented the 2017 attack that left him gravely wounded on a Virginia baseball field.
The Louisiana Republican was specifically asked by anchor Bill Hemmer whether a “particular law could have prevented” the attack by James Hodgkinson, who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders and specifically targeted the Republican House members as they practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game.
Hodgkinson had reportedly had run-ins with law enforcement but was never convicted of a crime, so he was able to legally purchase the guns he used in the attack.
