A pro-gun Democratic Senator-elect says he's now open to gun control measures.
Indiana Senator-elect Joe Donnelly tells CNN he's committed to taking a hard look at gun control legislation aimed at preventing incidents such as last Friday's shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
Donnelly has the endorsement of the National Rifle Association and is replacing retiring GOP Senator Richard Lugar.
He says he looks at his young kids and believes "we have a responsibility to make sure this never happens again."
Earlier Monday, West Virginia Democratic Senator and longtime NRA member Joe Manchin said he was changing his position on the matter and would support gun control legislation.
