We are seeing the impact of the congressional shooter right before out very eyes. This was not an attack on Democrats or Republicans. Rather, it was an attack on America. Everyone needs to work together to ensure that nothing like this will happen again. We cannot and will not let the evil in this country win. Ever since the shooting, we have been working hard in order to prove that we are still the greatest country on earth. Steve Scalise is doing better, according to doctors.
According to his office he was doing well before going into surgery.
“Prior to entering surgery, the whip was in good spirits and spoke to his wife by phone,” his office said. “He is grateful for the brave actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders and colleagues. We ask that you keep the whip and others harmed in this incident in your thoughts and prayers.”
If it wasn’t for the brave officers who quickly responded, this would have ended much worse. As it is, it was a very sad day in American history and we need to keep all of those impacted in our thoughts and prayers.
A statement from the hospital explains exactly what the whip is dealing with right now.
“Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding,” the statement explains. “He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations.”
The shooter has since been killed, due to the quick acting officers on the scene. We are seeing what happens when the political hate is in the air. Something needs to be done to better ensure the safety of our leaders.
