U.S. Senator Johnson supports gun control legislation


U.S. Senator Tim Johnson says South Dakota needs gun control legislation but it should look different than what other states are considering.

In a press conference in Sioux Falls Tuesday, he spoke out about the need for individualized gun control, and said he opposes any one–size–fits–all approach to legislation.

Johnson says he is awaiting a set of 19 executive proposals to be released by President Barack Obama on Wednesday.

"Gun legislation should take into account gun control, mental health and background check," said Johnson.

Obama will release the steps a little over a month since the massacre of 20 children and six adults at sandy hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
