Experts: Here's what America could look like if the VA gunman had killed everyone on the field

Last week, a gunman attempted to kill Republican members of Congress practicing on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia. If he had been successful, America could have changed forever.

The shooter injured five people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), who is still in the hospital and has undergone multiple surgeries to repair the damage. Because Scalise was on the field, a security detail was nearby and was able to take down suspected shooter James T. Hodgkinson. More than a dozen Republican lawmakers were at the field at the time.

On Wednesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck shared an alarming theory compiled by experts about what our country would look like if all of those lawmakers had died. The nation would have entered a period of mourning, the stock market would be crashing, and the government would have cracked down on social media with censorious hate speech laws, the report theorized.

The day after the shooting, the New York Stock Exchange would have been closed until the following Monday because derivatives trading dealing in futures would be in such disarray. Behind the scenes, the Federal Reserve would have been enacting huge manipulations to artificially stabilize the market.

Antifa and other extreme protest movements would have taken advantage of the situation to bring their protests to a new level, making the streets dangerous for everyone.

“The rest of the country would be frightened, watching it but not knowing what to do,” Glenn said.
