Everything You Need to Know About the GOP Baseball Shooting

In the early hours of baseball practice for GOP lawmakers, a gunman opened fire. Here's what you need to know.

  1. The shooting occurred in Alexandria, Vermont. 
  2. Although there were no fatalities, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (La.) was injured along with four others. 
  3. A shootout between law enforcement and James T. Hodgkinson III, the gunman, injured two police officers and the gunman himself.
  4. It's important to note that several news outlets are revealing the shooter's anti-Republican history (here). However, this incident should not be used to further anyone's political agenda. Democrats are using this tragedy as an example against guns, and Republicans are using this incident as an example against those who are anti-Republican. Keep in mind that this shooting, like all other incidences of violence, is not to be used to further one's political agenda, nor is it representative of any movement as a whole.

      Usually, whenever there are several important members of the government gathered in one place, there is some form of protection involved to ensure that no lives or lost. I believe that a need for guards wasn't foreseen, and that's what went wrong in this situation.
