'The rhetoric has been outrageous': GOP congressman blames Democrats following shooting, says he'll carry gun in public


Rep. Chris Collins on Wednesday laid some blame on Democratic political rhetoric for a shooting that injured GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise at a Republican congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. In an interview on WBEN, the New York Republican said Democratic political opposition to President Donald Trump had "gone too far." "I can only hope that the Democrats do tone down the rhetoric," Collins said. "The rhetoric has been outrageous: The finger-pointing, the tone, the angst and the anger directed at Donald Trump, his supporters, really then, some people react to things like that, people get angry as well, and you fuel the fires."
