Steve Scalise and several others were injured in a shooting this morning carried out by James T. Hodgkinson, who apparently was a Bernie Sanders fanboy. And apparently he had a history of being an asshole, which included domestic assault, several cases of illegally discharging a firearm.
"The man accused Hodgkinson of hitting him in the head with the gun's wooden stock and, as he ran way, firing once without hitting the man, according to a police report. The girlfriend told police that the shooting was followed by a violent confrontation that also included Hodgkinson's wife and another woman. In the end, Hodgkinson was charged with domestic battery, battery and aggravated discharge of a firearm. But the case was later dismissed, according to public records."
Such an upstanding individual, right? "Hodgkinson’s Facebook postings portray him as stridently anti-Republican and anti-Trump.
"I Hate Republicans & everything they stand for," he wrote in December 2015. On June 3, he shared a caricature of the president as "Maximus Imbecilus." He was a member of several political Facebook groups, including one called "Terminate the Republican Party."
Yep, barking moonbat! Obviously moonbats should follow their own advice and refrain from owning guns. Hopefully the victims will have a speedy recovery.
