Well, it seems like Kaine is following Hillary’s lead. But who can blame him? When you work for Hillary you do what she says or it will cost you…possibly your life.
Democrat vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine claims he never loses to the NRA, but he has.
He assumed the office of U.S. Senator for Virginia in January 2013 and immediately threw his support behind Senator Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) post-Sandy Hook gun control legislation. The NRA opposed the legislation and it was soundly defeated on April 17, 2013.
Moreover, just one day after the December 2, 2015 San Bernardino terror attack Senate Democrats tried to use the heightened sense of emotion to squeak through a gun control bill adding terror watch-lists to background checks–although the San Bernardino attackers were not on any list. MSNBC reported that every Democrat Senator except Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) voted for the gun control. The NRA opposed it. The measure was defeated.
Following the June 12, 2016 Orlando terror attack Kaine co-sponsored an amendment which would have added watch-lists to background checks thereby expanding gun control. The amendment was authored by Senator Dianne Eeinstein (D-CA), and would have given the Attorney General of the United States the power to intervene without due process and block people suspected–but not convicted–of crimes from buying a gun. The NRA opposed this amendment and it was defeated on June 20.
