Tim Kaine, Democrats Risk Our Lives for Gun Control

On April 16, 2007, Seung-Hui Cho opened fire with a handgun on gun-free zone Virginia Tech University, killing 32 unarmed innocents. Less than a year later, in March 2008, Governor Tim Kaine (D) vetoed a bill intended to mitigate the chances of such a slaughter reoccurring by allowing Virginians to keep a loaded gun in their car for self-defense.

The problem with this is that the Clackamas gunman stole his gun—so no amount of gun control would have stopped him—and his attack was stopped by a concealed carry permit holder who was armed in the mall.

Shannon Watts: Everyone Should Have to Go Through Background Check Gabby Giffords’ Attacker Passed

On April 6, Fox News ran a column which contained comments from Moms Demand Actions’ Shannon Watts praising Washington state’s institution for the very kind of background check Jared Loughner passed to get the firearm he used to attack Gabby Giffords, then saying it’s only “gunsense” that all other gun purchasers should have to go through the same background check.
