Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren will be sworn in as a Massachusetts US Senator in January. She won the seat in a hotly contested race from Senator Scott Brown who had an “A” rating and been supported by the National Rifle Association (NRA). While gun control was never addressed during the campaign, in retrospect it seems worth noting this change.
Out-going Senator Scott Brown recently said he now would support federal action to ban assault weapons, but I can’t tell if it is political pandering since everyone expects Brown to run to replace Kerry should he be nominated as the next Secretary of State. Massachusetts has some of the strictest gun control laws in the US so curious that he would get an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association; back-pedaling or change of heart?
