Kaine calls for comprehensive proposals to reduce gun violence

tim kaineAs Vice President Joe Biden continues his meetings with stakeholders this week in an effort to develop a new set of policies to reduce gun violence, U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) today expressed his support for a specific and comprehensive set of proposals.

“No one can deny that gun violence is a serious problem in this country,” said Sen. Kaine. “As mayor of Richmond and governor of Virginia, I learned through painful experience that there are specific, concrete steps to reducing gun violence. The right approach focuses on many issues – improvements to the mental health system, better security protocols and common sense rules about gun use.

“We owe it to the victims of the growing number of mass shootings to vigorously debate specific and comprehensive proposals that can keep our communities safer,” Kaine continued. “As a gun owner who worked with others to constitutionally guarantee Virginians the right to hunt, I know that you can be a strong supporter of the Second Amendment without tolerating the gun tragedies that are too often a part of our daily lives.”
