Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), whose district covers Aurora, told CBS' "Face The Nation" Sunday that he supports reinstating the 1994-2004 federal assault weapons ban in the wake of deadly shootings in the city.
"I think this is really a congressional issue that has to be dealt with," he said. "You know, should we rinstate the assault weapons ban? I think we should. And I think that's where it starts."
