Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) called for more gun control immediately following the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) at a congressional baseball practice this morning in Alexandria, Va.
McAuliffe then stated that "we lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence" before correcting the figure to 93 when a reporter pointed out the mis-statement.

"This is a very serious issue," he said, recalling the recent "senseless" murder of a Virginia state trooper.
McAuliffe said "there are too many guns on the street" but then said the issue shouldn't be raised today.
