Senator Tim Kaine threw his support behind stricter gun control laws.
In an op-ed piece, Kaine called for tougher background checks, limiting super-size magazines and certain combat-style weapons, as well as restricting gun trafficking across state lines.
Kaine, who is a gun owner, urged the senate to debate and vote on the issue. He called out Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and 11 other senators who have promised to filibuster any discussion on gun safety rules.
