MSNBC's Ed Schultz scolds Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) for not giving a firm answer on whether he supports a new ban on assault weapons.
ED SCHULTZ: Senator Al Franken of Minnesota is another Democratic lawmaker that was somewhat puzzling in the last 24 hours, who decided to clarify his position. He says, 'I co-sponsored legislation to ban large clips like those used in so many mass shootings," he said in a statement. "I also support the principle that we should reinstate a ban on assault weapons. And I will carefully review any proposal to do that." In principle, Can we get some straight talk? Because that in principle kind of thing leaves a little wiggle room that maybe you might not do it, Al.
