Tim Kaine Takes Pride In ‘F’ Rating From NRA

The NRA reminds voters Tim Kaine received an “F” rating for his refusal to defend the Second Amendment as political office holder. Kaine is responding by noting he’s proud to receive such a grade from the NRA.

The NRA tweeted, “Time Kaine [was] perennially rated ‘F’ by the NRA during his tenure at both the state and federal levels.”

Kaine responded by simply pointing out that he was “proud” to receive a failing grade:

During the October 4 Vice Presidential debate Kaine described himself as a “strong Second Amendment supporter.” He then pushed for more gun control on law-abiding citizens and claimed that more background checks would prevent “tragedies”–i.e., high profile shootings–from taking place.

He used the April 16, 2007, Virginia Tech shooting as a case in point, but did not mention that the Virginia Tech gunman passed a background check to acquire his weapon.
