Newtown's Republican Senator Navigates Gun Control

Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Gun-control advocates interrupt a speech by Connecticut State Senator John McKinney, a Republican, demanding that the state pass stricter gun laws. McKinney, the only Republican to speak at the rally in Hartford, represents Newtown, where 20 children and six adults were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School. His district also includes the headquarters of gun manufacturer Strum Ruger and Co., part of an industry that employs more than 7,000 in the state. (This is an excerpt. Source: Bloomberg)
