- House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was among those wounded in the June 14, 2017, shooting at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.
GOP baseball shooting
Speaking of his colleagues, Paul Ryan said June 14 that "an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us." This is what we've been trying to get Congress to see throughout all of the attacks that have taken place. Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, Orlando, all of them. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.

Armed and liberal
Let's see, we can't seem to successfully prosecute, recall or impeach those pesky lowlife conservatives/Enemies of the Republic, so ... let's just shoot them! With a GUN! What evil thoughts must be hidden under some of those liberal, furrowed brows. Amazing but not surprising.

Time for a travel ban
I think the tragic events of June 14 demonstrate the imperative nature of imposing a travel ban to keep people from Illinois from coming over here to commit acts of terrorism.
