In the wake of a shooting in Alexandria, Virginia that left Senator Steve Scalise in critical condition and 3 others wounded, the idea that the political rhetoric in America has become toxic is weighing on the nation.
Hours after the shooting Republican Congressman Chris Collins blamed Democrats in an interview with WBEN. Collins said: “I can only hope that the Democrats do tone down the rhetoric. 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.”
Collins asserted that the Democrats had “gone too far” and he would carry a gun when in public from now on.
