King, Collins React To President's Gun Control Proposals

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Maine's U.S. Senators are both saying they want to examine President Obama's recommendations on gun control, though both say they want to do something to curb gun violence.

In a press release yesterday, Senator Angus King said he found many of the President's proposals, quote, "reasonable" and "steps in the right direction."

However, King said he wanted to study the President's suggestions, as well as the details of any legislation introduced in the Senate.

Senator Susan Collins sounded a note of disappointment, saying in a press release that she hoped the President would recommend a national commission to look into the causes of violence in America.

Collins said she agreed something must be done about gun violence, but added it cannot be done at the cost of, quote, "denying the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens."
