During an interview with Fox News, Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) declared that America's focus should be on praying, not some 'political agenda' like regulating firearms.
“When there is a tragedy like this, the first thing we should be thinking about is praying for the people who were injured and do whatever we can to help them, to help law enforcement. We shouldn’t first be thinking of promoting our political agenda. I think we see too much of that where people say, ‘OK, now you have to have gun controls. Frankly, what I experienced was when there was a shooter, we had — luckily we had Capitol police there with their own guns. Every single day in America, regular citizens that just have a passionate belief in the Second Amendment that have their own guns use guns every single day to protect themselves against criminals. Those stories never get told or hardly ever get told. That’s a different side of the story that I think is important.”
