Virginia's U.S. Senate Candidates on Repeal of Handgun Rationing

From the NBC 4 in Washington:
Kaine, a Democrat, said in a statement:
The long-standing law strikes an appropriate balance between the 2nd amendment rights of Virginians and the public safety interests of our citizens.
Allen, a Republican and Kaine’s main competitor in the Senate race, saying at a  “Sportsmen for Allen” event:
"I'm not in favor of gun rationing," he said. "I wasn't for it when it passed, and I see no need for it."
And from RVANews:
I am very disappointed in the General Assembly’s actions toward repeal of one of Gov. Doug Wilder’s signature achievements,” said Tim Kaine, another previous governor. Kaine is now the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate.

“I strongly urge Gov. McDonnell to veto this legislation and urge all of Virginia’s leaders in Richmond to renew their commitment to a focus on jobs and the economy,” Kaine said.
McDonnell has indicated that he would sign the repeal measure.
So, there you have it, Allen, a friend to gun owners; Kaine, a typical anti-rights candidate that talks about a "balanced" approach to restricting our rights.
