Scalise: No Magic Law That Can Stop Shootings

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) spoke Thursday evening on Fox about the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida and his problems with the Democrats’ immediate push for gun control in response to the shooting. Scalise, himself the victim of a shooting in June, also emphasized the importance of prayer in reponse to such tragedies, saying prayer helped him and his family when he was fighting for his life in the hospital last year.

“Any time there is any kind of tragedy, either shooting or bombing whatever, immediately you’ve got a group of legislators that go run out and start calling for gun control to take away the rights of law-abiding citizens,” Scalise told Fox’s Laura Ingraham. “Look at their bills, read their bills, they have nothing to do with these kinds of shootings.”

“If you think there’s some magic, unicorn law that’s going to stop it from happening, just keep in mind that he violated probably dozens of laws already, including murdering people,” he said. “That’s against the law.”

“So, you know, this idea that one magic law is going to stop the next one from happening, it’s not,” Scalise emphasized.
