Sen. Kaine: Honor Orlando Victims by Changing Gun Control Laws

The best way to honor the victims of Sunday morning’s mass killings at an Orlando nightclub is to change gun control laws and keep weapons out of the hands of those people who should not have them, Sen. Tim Kaine, who was the governor of Virginia at the time of the Virginia Tech shootings, said Wednesday.

“The only way you can honor the lives that are lost is by making changes to reduce the chances that other families will go through this,” the Democratic Virginia senator told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program. “We’re talking on Capitol Hill about this issue of whether we should add people on the terrorist watch list to the prohibited classes of people from purchasing weapons. We need to dig into all the facts about this.”
