House GOP Whip Steve Scalise told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that his belief in the second amendment was “fortified” after the shooting in Las Vegas in an interview that will air at 7 pm Tuesday.
MacCallum asked Scalise whether his own experience with gun violence or what he saw in Las Vegas changed his views on the Second Amendment.
“I think it’s fortified it. Because first of all you’ve got to recognize that when there’s a tragedy like this, the first thing we should be thinking about is praying for the people who were injured and doing whatever we can to help them, to help law enforcement. We shouldn’t first be thinking of promoting our political agenda,” Scalise replied.
Scalise was severely injured in June when a gunman opened fire on a Congressional baseball practice in Arlington, Virginia.
Scalise’s interview tonight is his second TV interview this week. (RELATED: Fox News’ Martha MacCallum Sits Down With House GOP Whip Steve Scalise)
