Sen. AnGus King (I-ME) discussed gun control and said he supports mandatory background checks in an interview with co-hosts Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell that was broadcast live today, Jan. 14, 2013, on CBS THIS MORNING on the CBS Television Network (7:00 AM – 9:00 AM). Watch the full interview below!

Below are excerpts from the interview:

O'DONNELL: Let's turn now to the issue of gun control legislation. As you know Vice President Biden is going to be delivering his recommendation to the President tomorrow. Do you think anything gets passed out of Congress in the end?

KING: I think something probably will. It's a little hard to tell now. I'm not even sure whether-I thought it was very interesting that Vice President Biden last week, when he was sort of giving a preview, did not mention an assault weapon ban. It wasn't-now, it may be in the recommendations ultimately.

O'DONNELL: Would you support mandatory background checks?

KING: Mandatory background checks and also stronger penalties for people that lie on background checks, and I think we have to broaden-they have to do something about the so-called gun show loophole where people don't have do background checks. Broader background checks-it's really got to be a comprehensive policy, I think. But the biggest issue to me is size of the magazines. That's sort of The Common thread that connects a lot of these massacres. The assault weapons ban is a tough one because it's hard to define what an assault weapon is, and if we're just defining it by what it looks like, that doesn't do much for me. I'm much more interested in the functionality and whether that's really a different weapon than my buddy's semi-automatic hunting rifle.
