How Sen. Tim Kaine Dishonors VA Tech Victims

posted on April 20, 2015

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., went to the floor of the U.S. Senate to mark the anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings by reading the names of the 32 victims and calling for more background checks—ironically of the type that the mass murderer there had already passed.

How would a massive expansion of a system that didn’t save those victims “honor” them? On the effectiveness scale, this would rank right up there with a National Free Ice Cream Day.

If Kaine were intellectually honest, he’d call for eliminating the “gun-free” zones on college campuses that only disarm law-abiding citizens; he’d acknowledge the overwhelming data that proves carry laws do not create a much-hyped “Wild West;” and he’d admit that mass murderers only stop when they are finally confronted by a good guy with a gun.
