Scalise Undergoes Surgery for Infection
Brooks says full recovery could take ‘about a year or two’

Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, who was on the field during the shooting, said Scalise’s recovery could take time.

“My buddy Steve Scalise is still in the hospital with some very serious injuries that’s going to take, if things go right, it will be about a year or two before he’ll have recovered with all of the rehab and reconstructive surgery,” Brooks said in an interview on the Dan Morris Show in Montgomery, Ala.


I tweeted my senators and said it was a good thing Scalise has Obamacare.

Others of a less noble spirit might have said the opposite! ;)

So a major league Republican is shot and nearly killed (and probably crippled to some degree) by a crazy person, and his life is saved and his rehab is provided by Obamacare, and the response of Republicans is:

No effort to separate guns from crazy persons,
Making Obamacare go away.

Is that about right?

Except you forgot the bit about it being all the liberals' fault.

No, since I didn't live during that war. BTW, I NEVAH understood Scarlett's OBSESSION with that wimpy Ashley Wilkes!

Well, within their world view this is self consistent. If more people had been armed, then the attacker would have been stopped quicker. If obamacare was repealed, then the care the victim received would have been better and cheaper.

Ohio gender reveal party: A joyful occasion turns deadly

http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/10/us/ohio-h ... index.html

After the "gender reveal" party was over, a dozen or so people, including children, had reportedly settled in to watch a "Spider-Man" movie.

That's when terror came in.

Police near Cincinnati say two gunmen in hoodies opened fire with handguns, killing a woman and wounded eight others, including three children.

Now, instead of celebrating new life, the group will be mourning a loss and caring for the injured.

Not a recent one, but guns going off by themselves have a long history. (Genealogy research)


1779
After crossing into KY they made camp one night. Two sons went off to hunt for dinner & caught something. One son laid down his gun to help clean their kill. After going to bed he remembered his loaded gun sitting outside. While trying to retrieve it in the dark it went off killing his father. Rene II was buried near their camp somewhere in KY.
