EXCLUSIVE: Steve Scalise: Being Shot Solidified My Belief In The Second Amendment

“What I went through further solidified my strong belief in the Second Amendment. All of us who were on the ball field that day are fortunate that armed people were there to stop the attacker,” Scalise told Big League Politics.

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise said that his near-fatal 2017 shooting only further affirmed his strong belief in the Second Amendment.

“What I went through further solidified my strong belief in the Second Amendment. All of us who were on the ball field that day are fortunate that armed people were there to stop the attacker,” Scalise told Big League Politics.

“Every law-abiding American has the Constitutional right to protect themselves and their families from criminals. Disarming law-abiding Americans does not solve the problem, and with everything we are learning about failures at so many levels of government, it’s no wonder why law-abiding Americans feel strongly about the need to exercise their individual right to bear arms,” Scalise said.

“I will work hard to take action that actually solves problems so we can keep our schools and communities safe, while also standing with law-abiding Americans against any attempt to take away their constitutionally protected rights,” Scalise said.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
