Scott Brown of Massachusetts on Wednesday became the first sitting Republican senator to voice support for a federal assault weapons ban after the Newtown, Conn., shootings.
Brown failed to win re-election in November, however, and wont be in Congress to vote on gun legislation.
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, Brown told Massachusetts paper the Republican on Wednesday. As a result, I support a federal assault weapons ban, perhaps like the legislation we have in Massachusetts."

Good luck getting those democrat votes, Scott, because you won’t be getting mine.
And the rifle used in Newtown wasn’t on the banned list in the first place!
scott brown lost because he is something other than a republican. If a rat like this pos runs as a republican... progressives will just vote for the real deal. Many Conservatives just stay home.
Zackly. I remember when he won, so many people were groveling at his feet and saying wha t a great guy he was. A lot of us knew he was just another liberal. Adios, dikkhead.
Couldn’t care less, as long as he has an “R” on his name—ain’t gonna get no conservative patriot out of Commie Mass anyway so we may as well just go for the GOP seat.
SO WHO CARES!
Gee this is shocking.
I mean it.
Just think if we’d been blessed with a mAsschute preeze?
isn’t he out in january?
so this is meaningless for now and just establishing he is 100% unacceptable to fill kerry’s seat.
“Brown failed to win re-election in November, however, and wont be in Congress to vote on gun legislation”
Misleading headline. Meaning his vote ain’t worth shiite. I truly pity those Freepers who voted for this clown.
Glad this Masshole lost. If we have to have brain dead Representatives taking away our rights, I prefer the wolves not dress up in sheep’s clothing.
If J F’n Kerry (who served in VN)becomes sos, then Brown runs for the seat.
Scott is irrelevant, hardly worth getting in a huff about. He is less than nothing now.
During the last AWB we had the Columbine shooting.
Critical thinking - Scott you ain’t got any.
I blame MSNBC.
Doesn’t this moron realize that CT has an “assault weapon” ban?
Scott Brown is a Republican like Arlen Specter was a Republican, to get elected and that’s all.
Don’t worry I’m sure his replacement will cross party lines to work with the Republicans in the Senate(HAHAHAHAHA Yeah Right).....Commie Warren will lead the charge to take your rights for Comrade Obama.
