As horrific a tale as Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise can tell, the legislator has vowed to maintain an incredibly objective viewpoint on the Second Amendment.

First and foremost, this is the sort of incredible composure that we should come to expect from each and every one of our congressmen and women.  Of course, it’s highly doubtful that we’ll ever see such a sight, especially in the self-seving world of special interests and stuffed-pocket lobbyists.

So when we hear that Rep. Scalise is still supporting the Second Amendment after being targeted by the radical leftist terrorist, it only reiterates our respect for the man.

“It was one of the very few moments in my life, from the birth of my kids and marriage … that [I] will always remember,” Scalise said. “There were days where I [wasn’t] sure I was going to be able to do that – to be able to walk back on to the House floor on my own, with my crutches.”

In an interview with journalists from Politico, Scalise reflected on the shooting and his views on the second amendment.

“Those were some dark days,” he said. “You could take a bear down with the bullet I was hit with. When I looked at the caliber bullet, I was amazed I was still alive. Frankly, there are a lot of miracles that happened along the way.”

Scalise said the experience reinforced his support for gun rights. “I was a strong supporter of the second amendment before the shooting,” he said, “and frankly, as ardent as ever after the shooting in part because I was saved by people who had guns.

“They saved my life. But they also saved the lives of every other member. There were over a dozen members of Congress and staffers who would have been executed. That was the intention of the shooter.”

There was no “magic bill” that would stop shootings, he said, criticizing Democrats for rushing to pass gun control measures.

Scalise’s levelheaded approach to the subject runs perpendicular to the liberal left’s rhetoric, which undoubtedly helped to create the monster that attacked Scalise and his fellow congressmen.

James T. Hodgkinson, who was killed during the event by Capitol Police, was a member of several radical liberal Facebook groups that promoted the idea of assassinating the entire republican party.
