House majority whip says in interview his second amendment support strengthened after he was saved by people with guns
Steve Scalise feared he would never return to his job as House majority whip, after he was shot and gravely wounded at baseball practice nearly a year ago. On Tuesday, the five-term Republican from Louisiana returned to the Capitol. He was welcomed with a standing ovation – from both parties.
“It was one of the very few moments in my life, from the birth of my kids and marriage … that [I] will always remember,” Scalise said. “There were days where I [wasn’t] sure I was going to be able to do that – to be able to walk back on to the House floor on my own, with my crutches.”
