LISTEN: Gunman wanted to “Kill as many republicans as possible”
Congressman: “The only reason why any of us walked out of this thing…one of the folks here had a weapon to fire back…”
Michigan representative Mike Bishop details the harrowing experience in Alexandria, Virginia when a crazed gunman attacked. Several hundred shots later, the gunmen, and others, were dead.
“As we were standing here this morning, a gunman walked up to the fence line and just began to shoot. I was standing at home plate and he was in the third base line,” Bishop said. “He had a rifle that was clearly meant for the job of taking people out, multiple casualties, and he had several rounds and magazines that he kept unloading and reloading.”
