Gun Violence

Al Franken, Politician

Al Franken won't say whether he supports the president's call for a ban on military-style weapons.

"I guess I don't have an answer for you," said Franken spokesman Marc Kimball, following a press conference during which the senator omitted a ban on assault weapons when asked about gun restrictions he might support.

"He's been listening to Minnesota, trying to be thoughtful on this and trying to get input from people from a wide spectrum of views," Kimball added.
