Lawmakers to still play baseball after shooting

Consistency in our arguments, regardless of whose politics is benefiting from the situation, is the very least we should demand. I have a feeling that Steve has made a great sacrifice, but there could be some unity being brought to our country. Scalise remains in critical condition and will need several more operations, doctors said.

Four victims were shot and two had secondary injuries after a gunman opened fire at a practice for a Congressional baseball game on Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia. The bullet tore through his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding, the hospital said. In the immediate aftermath Wednesday the extent of his injuries was not widely known.

A "Business Insiderprofile on AOL news of James Hodgkinson, who allegedly carried out the attack on Republican members of Congress at a June 14 practice" for a charity baseball game, paints the picture of a "very mellow" business owner who "stayed up late" talking politics and whose alleged actions were "totally out of the blue". Hodgkinson's Facebook page alone offers a treasure trove of evidence that he simply believed Republicans and the Trump agenda must be stopped.

They left after half an hour, with Trump speaking to more Capitol Police officers on his way out. They signed oversized cards for the wounded.

Members of both parties said they needed to soften rhetorical attacks on each other, if only to set a better example for a public that seems increasingly divided into hostile political camps.

Republican Glenn Thompson of Pennsylvania rose on the House floor to issue a call to "replace the hateful rhetoric and resistance with respect", a comment seemingly aimed at an anti-Trump "Resist" movement.

Rep. Steve King of Iowa said over Twitter, "The center of America is disappearing, and the violence is incited by the leading cultural voices of the Left".

Pelosi says it's "outrageous" and "beneath the dignity" of the House, adding: "How dare they say such a thing, how dare they". Police took the teen foster daughter to the station until she could be picked up by her sister, and the state took custody away from the Hodgkinsons a couple of months later. As the Los Angeles Times points out, it is Trump supporters that tied Bernie Sanders to the shooting in Virginia by using a fake quote. The popular and gregarious lawmaker is known for his love of baseball and handed out commemorative bats when he secured the job of House whip several years ago.

"Five others were injured during Hodgkinson's Wednesday morning rampage at a park in Alexandria, Va". The popular annual face-off, which raises money for charity, is scheduled for Thursday evening at Nationals Park across the Potomac River in Washington, and will go forward as planned.

A search of online newspapers show that Hodgkinson frequently wrote letters to his local newspaper, the Belleville News-Democrat, which published almost two dozen letters between 2010 and 2012, many of which included complaints about the same theme: income inequality.

The GOP lawmakers' team was taking batting practice when gunshots rang out and chaos erupted.

Texas Rep. Mike Conaway described what sounded like an explosion, then lawmakers scattering off the field as police roamed in search of the gunman and engaged him.

"I yelled, 'Quit shooting toward the houses, '" Schaumleffel said. And, Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation and, frankly, the entire world.
