Rep. Steve Scalise, who was a victim of a shooting himself, understands that no law that could've prevented this tragedy.

Via Business Insider:

Republican Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who on Thursday returned for his first full day of work in the House since being wounded in a shooting this summer, said the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday had only "fortified" his position on gun control.

"When there's a tragedy like this, the first thing we should be thinking about is praying for the people who were injured and doing whatever we can to help them," Scalise told Fox News. "We shouldn't first be thinking of promoting our political agenda."

"Look at some of those bills," Scalise said. "Those bills wouldn't have done anything to stop this.

"The gunman actually cleared background checks," Scalise continued. "To promote some kind of gun control, I think, is the wrong way to approach this. And frankly, what I experienced was when there was a shooter, luckily we had Capitol Police there with their own guns."
