Gun-Ban Groups Love Hillary’s VP Choice

posted on July 26, 2016

It’s not hard to tell that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s newly named vice presidential pick, Tim Kaine, is just as anti-gun as she is—simply look at the people who are praising the selection.

The choice of Kaine, who is rated “F” by NRA’s Political Victory Fund, is being lauded by two of the most anti-gun groups fighting against the Second Amendment-protected rights of America’s law-abiding gun owners. “Since the very beginning of Moms Demand Action, Sen. Kaine has been a champion of our organization and cause,” Michael Bloomberg’s Demanding Moms head Shannon Watts wrote on Saturday. “He’s been there for us every step of the way, and now we’ll make sure Clinton/Kaine wins the White House.”

Not to be outdone, Everytown—another anti-gun Bloomberg-funded Astroturf group—also cheered Kaine’s selection. “With a Clinton-Kaine ticket, it’s clear that the political calculus has changed: Candidates are now running on a platform of gun safety and bucking the NRA, from the presidential ticket on down,” Everytown President John Fienblatt said after the announcement.
