All Rep. Steve Scalise had to do to trigger lefties last week was to tweet a picture of himself back on Capitol Hill with the message, “I’m back.” Since he was back on the job, liberals saw no reason not to pound him over health care and gun control.
And that was just from two words. In an interview Tuesday, Scalise told Fox News’s Martha MacCallum that the shooting incident at the GOP baseball practice that almost killed him has strengthened his stance on gun rights.
Maybe because his life was saved by a gun? https://t.co/nKOezK6ay9

Echoing comments made by other congressional Republicans and the White House, Scalise said that lawmakers should focus on supporting victims and law enforcement before advocating for a legislative response.
“Because first of all you’ve got to recognize that when there’s a tragedy like this, the first thing we should be thinking about is praying for the people who were injured and doing whatever we can to help them, to help law enforcement. We shouldn’t first be thinking of promoting our political agenda,” Scalise said.
Praying for the people who were injured before promoting a political agenda? That’s not going to go over well with liberals.
NO FUCKING HOPE from them, NONE => the first thing we should be thinking about is praying for the people https://t.co/mv0D4QwLnP

Even being personally injured, he is still beholden to the @NRA.

Of course not. You already sold your soul. $4950 from NRA itself in 2016 plus who knows how much more from other pro NRA contributors. https://t.co/eGciskRI26

Mate, I don't want to hear about it next time you're shot. If you don't change the laws then you can't complain when it happens again. https://t.co/BycKTEl0uw

He’s not complaining, is he?
Just imagine if everyone had a gun during a mass shooting? How are the police supposed to be able to tell who the actual shooter is? https://t.co/p496noy0aY

He’d be the one shooting? What?
Shot by a maniac. Saved by a lesbian. Medical care paid for by tax payers.
Still a selfish asshole. Deplorables gonna deplorable. https://t.co/7LZbhPDKRO
