Sullivan says he would oppose gun check bill

Republican US Senate candidate Michael J. Sullivan, who previously held the nation’s top post regulating firearms, said at a live debate Friday night that he would vote against the current measure being negotiated on Capitol Hill that would ­expand background checks for gun sales.

Sullivan was the only one of the Republican candidates at the WFXT-TV (Channel 25) ­forum to voice opposition to the measure. His rivals in the April 30 primary, state Representative Daniel B. Winslow and ­Cohasset businessman Gabriel E. Gomez, said they would support the checks.
