Fox News host Greg Gutfeld roasted Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine on “The Five” Tuesday for his “thoughtless” comments about Monday’s attack at Ohio State University.
The attack, which was perpetrated by an 18-year-old Somali refugee student, was carried out with a knife and car, but that didn’t stop the former Democratic vice-presidential candidate and many other liberals from blaming it on “gun violence.”
“Deeply saddened by the senseless act of gun violence at Ohio State this morning. Praying for the injured and the entire Buckeye community,” Kaine tweeted.

But in fact, the only person who discharged a firearm on Monday on the OSU campus was the hero officer who quickly stopped the terrorist before he was able to injure more or take any lives.
“So let me get this straight. A man tries to kill with a car and a knife, but the villain is a gun — a gun that was used to shoot and kill the guy who was using the car and a knife to kill people,” Gutfeld began. “For Kaine, I say it’s the thought that counts, but what he said was thoughtless.”
“There’s nothing senseless about this ‘gun violence.’ Hell, it may be the most sensible thing ever,” he added. “What’s thoughtless is the knee-jerk response you get from the left over guns.”
Gutfeld went on to explain that Kaine later corrected his tweet, but his point remained: that many on the anti-gun left have used Monday’s attack — which again was not perpetrated by a gun and was only stopped by a police officer using a firearm — to advocate for more gun control.
But according to Gutfeld, terrorists will wage their jihad by any means necessary — which is therefore an “argument for more, not less guns.”
The Islamic State has since claimed responsibility for the attack.
