Senator Mark Warner and "Assault Weapons"

When Mark Warner ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 1996, as well as when he ran for Governor in 2001, he expressed support for the Clinton Gun Ban. It is believed when he responded to the NRA questionnaire for the 2008 U.S. Senate race, he signaled a change of heart. Yesterday, The Hill newspaper reports that Warner opposes a renewal of the ban. While The Hill does not quote him saying he would vote against the ban, the paper reports he does oppose the ban and quoted him saying “I have generally thought we ought to enforce our existing laws and we should not be adding new ones.”
