the vote was 31 to 2

aren't you interested in who those 2 are? which two people think it's ok, think it's acceptable for someone UNDER 16 TO HAVE A MACHINE GUN? i'm guessing the dude mentioned at the very end of the article (click the link) is one of 'em. i am just sitting here shaking my head.

babies and machine guns. why is that acceptable to ANYONE?

are the 2 conspiracy theorists who think (like a bunch of wingnuts), the new president of color is a socialist with only one agenda - that is prying the guns out of your cold dead hands? i don't know but i'd certainly re-consider voting for ANYONE who doesn't have a problem with giving a minor a machine gun

Senate Passes Machine Gun Ban For Children
|The Hartford Courant
Prompted by the tragic death of an 8-year-old Connecticut boy at a Massachusetts gun club, the state Senate voted 31 to 2 Thursday afternoon to ban the transfer of a machine (gun) to anyone under 16.

The bill prohibits the physical transfer of such weapons to children - in response to the death of Christopher K. Bizilj, an Ashford boy who lost control of a Micro Uzi submachine gun and accidentally shot himself in the head in Massachusetts in late October.

The third-grade boy, who stood 4 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 66 pounds, could not control the recoil of the high-powered weapon. A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted a police chief, the gun club, and two Connecticut men in connection with the accident at the machine gun event in Westfield.

Both Republicans and Democrats described the measure as "common sense'' legislation, saying they believe that most citizens would be surprised that it was legal for minors to fire such a powerful weapon..........
