Mitt Romney 'appalled' by Family Research Council shooting

A security guard was reportedly shot in the arm earlier on Wednesday when attempting to stop an armed man who entered the lobby of the building in Washington, D.C.'s Chinatown. The guard is receiving care and a suspect is in custody.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee, along with newly minted running mate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), is set to participate in the Christian organization’s Values Voter Summit next month.

The FRC takes strong political positions on socially conservative issues, including abortion rights and gay marriage. The summit is a forum for the candidates to address conservatives voting on issues of religious liberty.

FRC President Tony Perkins applauded Romney’s choice of Ryan as a running mate.
