  2. Stella, thank you for posting this. It’s gut wrenching to hear how severe his injuries are and it’s amazing he’s doing as well as he is. I can’t fathom what his family must be going through. Praying daily for him.

    100 fragments? That sounds like a bullet made to fragment. I know high velocity bullets can fragment but 100 fragments?

    Maybe one of our gun people can share their knowledge.

    Scalise is lucky and blessed to be alive. Imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and these were democrats?

        Oh you might b right maybe I misunderstood. But (thinking as I typed) the good doc was talking about the bullet, a reporter asked if they had removed the bullet and he said something along the line of “People always ask us if we removed the bullets or fragments, often times as is the case with Steve Scalise it is safer to leave the bullet and fragments in.”

        I’ll listen again later.

        Starts at 6:45

        “100’s of bullet fragments” if he had to guess.

        I would say through my ignorance some kind of copper jacket that “explodes” but then there is the clean through and through the young man’s ankle.

        Matt Mika is still in critical condition after being shot in the chest, the through and through and Mike make me think that the shooter was using regular bullets.

        The shooter also had two guns.
