Fight for an effective hand gun control law

Kelleher cited the Augusta mother who a few weeks earlier with a .38 hand gun shot and killed her 10 year old daughter as she slept in the safety of her own beds. Bob said: "Max, Mike and Stan--I call up upon you before the people of Central Montana to covenant with me that whoever is elected will fight for an effective hand gun control law"--silence. The eyes of over 400 people in the Great Falls civic center darted back and forth looking at the candidates to Bob's left and right--still silence.
