[See NewsBusters for more.] A confused Jim Sciutto asked former GOP Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake on Tuesday's CNN Newsroom why his fellow Republicans refuse to embrace gun control even after the 2017 Alexandria shooting where they were the ones being shot at. For Sciutto and Flake the only reasonable explanation was fear of getting primaried.
Sciutto led off by asking, "You have said that seeing a colleague, Congressman Steve Scalise, get shot by a gunman in 2017 this is during an annual congressional softball or baseball game rather, you called his wife afterwards. That shifted your views on gun control. I just wonder why hasn't the combination of that moment which Scalise and others bring up frequently and this continuing epidemic of gun violence moved the two parties to do something together? Why hasn't it changed?"
