On Wednesday morning, several Republican members of Congress were hunted down and shot on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, by a violent, deranged leftist and Bernie Sanders supporter. The only thing that prevented all of the Republicans who were present at the sports field at the time, reported to be about ten percent of the entire Republican contingent of the House and Senate, from being killed, was a Capitol Hill police security detail for one of the House leaders, all of whom were armed and ready for action.
One can assume that the leftist killer who pulled the trigger of the rifle that wounded several legislators, felt secure in carrying out the attack because it was in the DC area where the private possession of guns is forbidden, and he assumed he would be able to kill at will. There were no city police assigned to, or present at, the ballpark where the outrage happened, so it was just luck that the personal body guards of specified members of Congress were present and saved many lives.
But next time there is an assembly of Republicans the luck of a nearby armed official may not occur, and it’s possible that tens of people will be killed as insane liberal Democrats seek out someone to blame for Bernie Sanders having lost the Democrat nomination, and for Donald Trump winning the presidency.
Luck should never be depended upon for personal safety and protection because it can always run out.
