Dear Not-Going-To-Be-Vice-President Tim Kaine

Mr. Kaine

After a Muslim terrorist drove a car into a crowd at Ohio State and then chased innocent by-standers with a knife, you responded with:

Deeply saddened by the senseless act of gun violence at Ohio State this morning. Praying for the injured and the entire Buckeye community

Of course as we know, the only act of "gun violence" was an OSU cop who shot Abdul Razak Ali Artan and the actions of that officer were anything but "senseless". Some would defend your leap to conclusion by pointing out that Ohio State reported an "active shooter" situation but even then we had no facts to support any shooting and we knew nothing about what happened. That didn't stop you from tripping over yourself to slam "gun violence" before we knew if it was indeed a gun being used or, as it turned out, was instead a car and a knife. These things can be confusing, I understand. I want to help you.

Here is a quick refresher.

This is a gun

This is a car

And this is a knife

Of course all three have variations but the basic shape is similar. You might want to keep this post handy for reference before sending out future tweets.

Or a better idea might be to not seek to politicize a criminal or terrorist situation to push an agenda of disarming the populace before we know at least a handful of facts. Even better yet, don't push that agenda at all. Just a suggestion.
