June 14th 2017:
Today’s shooting incident of a Republican Member of Congress is a blot on the American experiment.
As Chair of the BRTC, I’ve no doubt that all our members offer their prayers for the recovery of the victims, including Representative Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip.

Providing this link on a Facebook Post, CT State Senator Joe Markey noted:
“The answer to an abuse of liberty isn’t to restrict liberty but rather to defend against that abuse. And that’s exactly what courageous Capitol Hill police did today. We’d like to think that we can enjoy freedom without consequence, that people will always exercise their liberties in a virtuous manner. When they inevitably don’t, we too often race to blame the liberty along with the person. That’s the wrong response.”
Some brief facts about the shooter, and I blame the shooter. Could have been another weapon besides a rifle… this deranged piece of flesh (and I meant another word) was, thank the Lord, taken out by cops (good guys with firearms). As noted in the “Daily Mail”:
- James Hodgkinson, 66, died in hospital after being shot by Capitol Police at the baseball field in Virginia
- He was a staunch Democrat who documented his hatred for President Trump on social media pages
- Hodgkinson moved from his home in Illinois to Virginia two months ago and had been living out of his car
- He has a long criminal history which includes an assault charge for punching his female neighbor as she tried to protect his daughter from him in 2006
Today is FLAG day, It’s also the birthday of the US ARMY (THANK YOU VETERANS), and the President’s birthday as well.
To be clear, Republicans will not stand down, will defend themselves as needed, and clearly will not accede to intimidation.
That being said, all need to TONE DOWN.
Violence to effect political change is simply UN-AMERICAN. And the terrorists who act on their sick instincts need to be apprehended, jailed and put through the legal system regardless if they wear black “anti-fa” masks, ISIS flags, che tee-shirts, whatever.
This is AMERICA (United States of), and we do not accept violence as an answer, left right or sideways!
