Senate approves resolution in favor of weapons ban

Friday, October 15th, 2004.

SAN JUAN (AP) – Despite the fact that the period in which to renew the ban has ended, the Senate approved a resolution in favor of keeping in place the Assault Weapons Ban.

New Progressive Sen. Norma Burgos was the only member of her party’s delegation to vote in favor of the proposal filed by Popular legislator Jose Ortiz Daliot, a newspaper reported Friday.

The possibility of extending the ban, approved by Bill Clinton in 1994 for a 10-year term, generated controversy when it was revealed that the New Progressive mayor of San Juan, Jorge Santini, supported its repeal and possessed at least 20 of the large weapons.

New Progressive Sen. Kenneth McClintock minimized the importance of the senate resolution because on Sept. 14 the period for extending the ban for civil use of assault weapons expired.
