WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Senate vote could come as soon as Thursday on an assault weapons ban.

Wednesday lawmakers heard emotional testimony on this controversial issue.

"I had to go home that night to an empty house without my son, something that should have never happened at an elementary school,” said Neil Heslin.

Heslin, whose 6-year-old son Jesse was killed in the tragedy in Newtown, pleaded with the Senate Judiciary Committee to approve the assault weapons ban.

Heslin says he supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms and backs sportsmen who like using firearms.

But he told the committee the Second Amendment was written at a time when firearms were not as sophisticated as today's assault weapons.

Some republican lawmakers say an assault weapons ban would violate the constitution.
