WASHINGTON -- Attorney General nominee Alberto Gonzales told the Senate on Tuesday that he supports extending the expired federal assault weapons ban.
Gonzales also said he wants Congress to reauthorize the Patriot Act this year, despite complaints that it is too intrusive.
"I believe the USA Patriot Act has greatly improved our nation's ability to detect and prevent terrorist attacks," Gonzales told the Senate Judiciary Committee in written answers to questions left over from his confirmation hearing.
Gonzales, who was President Bush's lawyer in his first term, is expected to be confirmed when the Senate returns after Bush's inauguration Thursday.
Democrats, including Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., pressed Gonzales for written answers to several of their questions during his hearing. Those answers were delivered on Tuesday to the committee, which planned to meet today.
