Virginia Democratic Senator Tim Kaine yesterday took to the floor of the Senate to urge Republican leadership to take up legislation to tighten gun control.

And the third lie that we had to confront repeatedly from the National Rifle Association was, gun safety rules violate the second amendment. That is just flat out wrong."
