'The Big Saturday Show' co-hosts weigh in as President Biden and Democrats push for stricter gun laws after Walmart tragedy.

Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis on Sunday declined to endorse President Biden’s call for a ban on so-called "assault weapons," but he said he would be willing to look at further licensing requirements for certain "high-powered weapons."

Polis, who is relatively conservative on gun issues and has criticized calls for assault weapons bans in the past, was asked by NBC News "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd whether he would support a federal ban on assault weapons proposed by Biden last week after a mass shooting in Colorado Springs.

"In Colorado, we have a magazine limit – 15 bullets, no more than 15 bullets in a magazine. So effectively, it reduces the ability of high-powered weapons to do harm. So look, I think all these things, including the red flag law, and expanding its use should really be looked at," Polis said. "But again, it's not just about gun policy. Yes, that should be on the table to discuss in a thoughtful, rational way. But we also need to talk about mental health. We need to talk about the divisive rhetoric that even some people who aspire to positions of leadership in our country unfortunately use almost every day."
