Shooting Survivor Scalise Exposes How Prayers Will Help More Than Gun Laws

Liberals often mock Conservatives for turning to prayer after mass shootings, rather than trying to take away gun rights. Shooting victim and Republican House Majority Whip Steve Scalise explained why liberals are totally wrong.

“Any time there’s any kind of tragedy, I mean, a shooting, a 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. And they don’t know the fact of that particular event. And again, look at their bills, read their bills. They have nothing to do with this kind of shootings,” argued Scalise.

“What I first think we need to do is pray for the people that died… the families too, and all of these kids, Laura. There were a lot of kids that witnessed this that are going to have this with them the rest of their lives. The prayers helped me tremendously,” argued Scalise.

“You go find your law that was going to prevent this or the next shooting. And first of all, whatever criminal did these actions violated a whole host of other laws too,” he said.

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