Tim Kaine's "sniper fire" moment

Twitter rebukes Kaine for saying he has ‘scar tissue’ from deadly Virginia Tech shooting

Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, who was governor of the state at the time of the deadly shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007, said Tuesday he has figurative “scar tissue” as a result of gun violence.
“I’m a gun owner; I’m a strong Second Amendment supporter, but I’ve got a lot of scar tissue,” Kaine said. “When I was governor of Virginia, there was a horrible shooting at Virginia Tech and we learned that, though that painful situation, that gaps in the background system should have been closed and it could have prevented that crime.”
While Kaine intended to make a point about the gun control laws he and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would seek implement if they succeed in November, it was the “scar tissue” gaffe that earned the Virginia senator scorn on social media Tuesday night.
