Franken: I ‘Support the Principle That We Should Reinstate a Ban on Assault Weapons’

by Katrina Trinko

A report yesterday, since updated, suggested that liberal stalwart Al Franken was undecided about whether to back an assault weapons ban. But in a statement to the initial outlet shared with NRO, Franken said: “I also support the principle that we should reinstate a ban on assault weapons, and I will carefully review any proposal to do that. We need to make sure we don’t have weapons out there that are really designed for the battlefield, and not for hunting.”
