House Assembles in Show of Unity

House Speaker Paul Ryan is set to address the House at noon.

The shooting attack on a group of Republican congressman practicing baseball hit early on Wednesday morning, and so we found ourselves watching all day to see what people in positions of power and prominence might have to say.

After leading the House in the pledge of allegiance, Speaker Paul Ryan offered powerful words of resilience and camaraderie.

Words like these from Ryan and Pelosi remind us that, in times of tragedy, we can and must come together as Americans.

Ryan, who acknowledged the recent tensions between lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in an afternoon floor speech, urged his colleagues join him in showing the world that "we are one House".

The Wisconsin Republican praised the efforts of Capitol police officers and other law enforcement.

You might not realize it, but almost all of Wisconsin's congressional delegation doesn't travel with their own security guards, and they plan to keep it that way - even after a shooting Wednesday, June 14th during a congressional baseball practice in Virginia.

As for the prospect of passing legislation on a bipartisan basis that could prevent gun violence incidents like Wednesday's shooting, Ryan pointed to existing mental health legislation. This year's game will take place at Nationals Park in D.C. He said the two officers were in surgery on Wednesday afternoon. Scalise was in stable condition.

Pelosi said at a news conference she believes the 2,200-member Capitol Police force needed a bigger budget. He said the gunman had "a rifle of some sort. a lot of ammo". "I could have been his first victim".

Those practicing banded together to survive the shooting, including Rep. "My colleagues were targeted today by somebody who wanted to kill them".

It's easy to lose sight of our common humanity - whether you are a member of Congress or not.

"You're going to hear me say something you've never heard me say before".

It is Republicans, Pelosi claimed, who created the "politics of personal destruction". Four others were wounded. Hodgekinson, linked to ant-Republican and and anti-Donald Trump groups, died at a hospital. There are "people who may take that tone as some sort of justification to act out".

Rep. Mo Brooks, an Alabama Republican, said his colleague "crawled into the outfield, leaving a trail of blood". At times, our emotions can get the best of us. As he walked to his auto, a man asked DeSantis if it was Republicans or Democrats practicing.

"So before this House returns to its business, I want us to slow down and reflect, to think about how we are being tested right now. The default to that would be a missed opportunity". Lawmakers, staff members and even the young son of one of the members ran for cover, jumping into dugouts and over fences to avoid the gunshots.
