Kaine statement on executive actions on gun violence

tim kaineU.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today on the executive actions President Obama announced to reduce gun violence.

“We’ve seen tragedies in countless cities and towns including Charleston, Newtown and Blacksburg. In Roanoke last year, we saw a horrific shooting take the lives of two young journalists. It’s also important to remember that countless instances of gun violence occur outside the purview of the mainstream media – domestic disputes in homes, suicides and urban violence,” Kaine said. “I support the President’s steps today. Partnering with law enforcement to encourage the use of smart technology to develop safer guns, increasing access to mental health treatment and investing in gun violence research are all steps that can help prevent tragedy.”
