*Clinton vows Supreme Court judge who backs gun control*

Hillary Clinton vowed Sunday evening that she would nominate Supreme Court
justices who agree with her on the need for stricter gun laws.
"I respect the Second Amendment, but I believe that there should be
comprehensive background checks," the Democratic nominee said Sunday, "and
we should close the gun show loophole and close the online loophole we have
to save as many lives as we possibly can."
Clinton's remarks were a response to the specific question: "What would you
prioritize as the most important aspect of selecting a Supreme Court
She said she believes the current court has "gone in wrong direction."
Though the issue of gun control was mentioned only briefly Sunday evening
during the debate, it has been an ongoing theme of the Clinton campaign.
Vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., a gun-owner, said last
week in his debate with Indiana Gov. Mike Pence that he is, "a strong
Second Amendment supporter."
"But I've got a lot of scar tissue, because when I was governor of
Virginia, there was a horrible shooting at Virginia Tech," Kaine said in
reference to a 2007 mass shooting event that claimed the lives of 32
people. "We can support the Second Amendment and do things like background
record checks and make us safer, and that will make police safer, too."
Clinton said last week during the first presidential debate that stricter
gun control measures could go a long way toward healing race relations.
"[W]e've got to get guns out of the hands of people who should not have
them," Clinton said. "The gun epidemic is the leading cause of death of
young African-American men, more than the next nine causes put together."
"So we have to do two things," she added. "We have to restore trust, we
have to work with the police, we have to make sure they respect the
communities and the communities respect them and we have to tackle the
plague of gun violence, which is a big contributor to a lot of the problems
that we're seeing today."
