“What happened in Newtown where those children were subject to that level of violence is beyond my comprehension. As a state legislator in Massachusetts I supported an assault weapons ban thinking other states would follow suit. But unfortunately, they have not and innocent people are being killed. As a result, I support a federal assault weapons ban, perhaps like the legislation we have in Massachusetts.”
Senator SCOTT BROWN (r - Massachusetts).
He’s the first — and only, thus far — GOP senator to express support for an assault weapons ban.
