Sen. Bob Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania says the Connecticut school shootings in December caused a significant change in his position on gun laws and now favors limits on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.
He said the NRA's executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, is "full to it" and does not understand that many Americans are in favor of restrictions such as expanded background checks.
"It's not Mike Bloomberg that [LaPierre] has to worry about," he said, "it's the American people he has to worry about."
