(POLITICALTICKER.BLOGS.CNN) — Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said Sunday the president will soon have legislation “to lead on” in the gun control debate, announcing she will introduce a bill next month in the Senate to place a ban on assault weapons.

“We’ll be prepared to go, and I hope the nation will really help,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

The senator said she’ll introduce the bill when Congress reconvenes in January and the same legislation will also be proposed in the House of Representatives.

“We’re crafting this one. It’s being done with care. It’ll be ready on the first day,” she said, adding that she’ll soon announce the House authors.
