Local News

Senator Tim Kaine on the Senate floor, asking his fellow lawmakers to consider voting on gun legislation. 
Senator Kaine talked specifically about two bills pertaining to background checks that the Senate could consider and vote on. 
One up for debate would consider a universal background check system. 
The second, he said would address a weakness in the current system, which would make sure someone would not be able to purchase a firearm, unless he or she passed the background check first. 
“Tragedy after tragedy after tragedy and yet, there has not been a  debate on the floor of the Senate since April of 2013. Well I think it’s time to have a debate and guess what, we have an opportunity,” said Senator Tim Kaine.
