"Shot" not "shop". Scalise shot in hip apparently. Happened in GOP-specific part of the fields.

Steve's a big 2nd Amendment type of guy , so i'm sure he'll take it in his stride
Im sure the shooter was a registered Democrat, 50 shots and only a couple of injuries makes me think he had no weapons skills :D

I'm sure his friends in Congress are sending 'thoughts and prayers ' , just like they did with Sandy Hook , Orlando etc. after all there's not much more they can do in their position

Fortunately he was not accurate shooter located at the third base dug-out shooting across the diagonal. Armed with M-4 rifle and pistol. Majority leader pinned down with his security team rushing the second base taking fire and wounds returning fire with only pistols ran directly at sniper and brought him down.
