On the day that President Obama proposed a sweeping package of gun-control measures, U.S. Sen. Al Franken signaled his support for several components of Obama's plan.

Franken, speaking during a press event in Rochester, said he supports limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds and tightening the nation's system of background checks. He didn't mention a ban on assault weapons, a key provision of the president's plan, during the visit, but later his staff noted he continues to support the principle of renewing an assault weapons ban, something he said shortly after the massacre at Shady Hook Elementary School where 26 children and staff were killed by a gunman.
