ALAN GIONET: One Colorado Congressman hopes to regulate the type of assault weapon police say was used in the grocery store shooting.

KAREN LEIGH: Representative Ed Perlmutter wants President Biden to take executive action and put concealable assault style firearms on the national firearm registry.

ED PERLMUTTER: If it's added to the registry, it really then becomes like a machine gun, or like a sawed-off shotgun. It requires much more in terms of identification, much more in terms of registration and regulation. And we know so many of these weapons were placed on the registry way back decades ago, and rarely do we find them used in any kind of a crime, especially a murder.

KAREN LEIGH: Perlmutter says putting this type of gun used in the grocery store murders would allow law-abiding citizens to own them, and not killers.
