Tim Kaine blames gun violence for knife attack at Ohio State University

Pence beats Kaine in VP debateOn Monday, Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s vice-presidential running mate, stepped on himself when he blamed the Ohio State University attack on gun violence.  According to reports, the suspect, identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Somali refugee and a student at the school, rammed his car into pedestrians before slashing students with a butcher knife.  He was shot dead by a university police officer.

That prompted Kaine — along with a number of other low-information liberals — to blame — wait for it — guns.

According to the Daily Caller, Kaine backtracked:

The Daily Caller added:

Kaine was not the only person with an outdated tweet about “gun violence” by lunch time. News outlets initially reported the incident as an “active shooter” situation, but the suspect did not shoot anyone. He was, however, fatally shot by a campus police officer.

When news first broke of the situation many who are for more gun control on social media called for stricter legislation. However, as the story unfolded some responded that that they were only reacting to the news that was available at the time.


Twitchy added:

And, as is so often the case with this sort of thing, the truth dealt a mighty blow to gun grabbers’ ghoulish agenda. Vox, for example, has already had to walk their freakout back:

Facts?  Why use facts when there’s a narrative to push?




Good question.  Does that mean Kaine is actually an unwitting tool of the Russians?
