California members of Congressional baseball team check in safe after shooting

As reported by the San Francisco Chronicle:

California lawmakers began offering support Wednesday morning after Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), and several other people who were shot during a congressional baseball practice in Virginia.

Eight California lawmakers are listed on the roster for the 2017 game, and several went on social media to check in safe and condemn the shooting. The lone Republican player was not near the scene, according to local TV reports.  Democratic representatives, including Jared Huffman and Eric Swallwell of the Bay Area, used social media to share prayers for those injured and to credit Capitol Police for their quick response to the shooting.

The House has sharply curtailed its business Wednesday following the shooting.

A message from the GOP leadership says no votes are expected in the House Wednesday. Members also won’t be allowed to make short speeches during what’s known as the morning hour. …

    If the shooter wanted to take out the people who stopped Bernie from getting elected, why didn’t he just go to a Democrat fundraiser with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders? The Republicans and Russians did not choose Hillary over Bernie. So stupid. Also wonder if many pro gun control people already have guns, but want no else to. Sad, tragic, useless shooting.

    “Demonization of the enemy or Dehumanization of the enemy is a state propaganda technique which promotes an idea about the enemy being threatening evil aggressor with only destructive objectives. Demonization is the oldest propaganda technique aimed to inspire hatred toward the enemy necessary to hurt them more easily, to preserve and mobilize allies and demoralize the enemy.”

    Behold the fruit of the Democrat and Media campaign to demonize Trump and the GOP.

  3. Really??? says

    This is the second assassination of a public Congressional member and the shooter both times? A Democrat.

    Make no mistake it is great the people reported in well. Just it is time to put in perspective who the wakos are. Mr. Frank according to the Clinton’s and Obama is a terrorist in waiting. That was stated about veterans.

    The Dem’s are out of control and the media propaganda are in sync with the negativity about anyone who is right of our middle of the road not their middle of the road.

    The “Morning Hour” ? It must be tough to be a politician.

  5. Wouldn’t now be a great time to have a conversation about a National concealed carry law?Perhaps that would end all this BS from the anti-gunners who still don’t believe that the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. How about it Congress, does that seem like a good idea or what?

  6. What will the Democrats give us next? They gave us the destructive riots in Berkeley, California. A College professor that used a weapon to wound a Trump supporter. Where will their ambitions for violence take them next? Will George Soros start supplying AK-47s to satisfy their need for violence to bring about a socialist (communist) revolution?
