The shooting in Alexandria, Virgina, that nearly killed Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) could have been a horrifying massacre. That it wasn’t was a miracle, a combination of good fortune and valiant heroism, and frankly, pure luck.

We have seen much too much carnage resulting from wanton gun violence in our country. All too often, the shooter is mentally unstable, as this one was. Yet, not only was this shooter estranged from his family and society, he was also riled up by the hate and reckless language of our current political discourse.
