Tim Kaine Pushing Gun Control Again

America's First Freedom (AFF) reports that Virginia's U.S. Senator Tim Kaine used the opportunity of the anniversary of the Virginia Tech shooting to push for "expanded background checks."
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.
As AFF noted, the Virginia Tech shooter passed a background check.  Had a so-called "universal background check" been law, it would not have stopped that horrible incident.  The reason the shooter passed the background check was because a state judge failed to involuntarily commit the shooter for mental health treatment, resulting in his name not being added as a prohibited person in the background database.

What may have reduced the number of deaths is what John Lott told WMAL"s Larry O’Connor last Thursday, putting an end to "gun free zones."
