Rep. Steve Scalise has, since returning to work at the House of Representatives, said that his views on gun control haven’t changed since he was nearly killed when a would-be assassin opened fire at a Republican baseball practice. The media is reporting the story with a hint of surprise and disbelief.

For those shaking their heads at Scalise’s conviction to principle, Guy Benson has an alternate headline that frames it much more accurately:
BREAKING: Man who survived murder attempt motivated by his political views declines to adopt political views of his attempted murderer https://t.co/4OfhGkyJB4

Well when you put it that way…
Weird how unpersuasive shooting someone can be.
