Rep. @SteveScalise explains why his views on gun control have not changed since he was shot last year: “I’ve got deep-rooted conservative beliefs, but they’re rooted in what the fundamental foundation of this country is based on.” https://t.co/f8u2wc159S pic.twitter.com/OHNwka2za3

We don’t watch The View because we value intelligent, informed opinion no matter what the topic may be. Not to mention that spending that hour pulling our fingernails off with pliers would be far less painful.
But props to Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise for venturing into the lionesses’ den and defending Second Amendment rights in a forum that includes such learned experts and civil rights supporters as Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.
Scalise, you will remember, was the most seriously wounded Congressman that day in June, 2017 when Bernie Sanders fan James Hodgkinson opened fire on a bunch of GOP House and Senate members who were holding a baseball practice. Scalise was the House Majority Whip at the time and spent months in recovery before returning to Congress.
