Renee Reixach supports gun control, "they're not used for hunting, they're not used for sport, the purpose is to injure or kill or mame people and that doesn't seem to be anything to me that society should countenance."
Kordell Jackson owns Jackson Guns and Ammo in Henrietta. The shop has been busy since people don't know what guns they won't be able to buy if tighter gun laws go into effect, "a lot of questions, a lot of unanswered answers, people just don't understand what the gun controls going to do for us or help us or hinder us, we don't have a clue yet," said Jackson.
Jackson's shop sells everything from small hand guns to high power semi automatic weapons. Customers say they're for sport and they should be allowed to buy them, "not one of these guns right now is going to shoot somebody," explained Batz, "it takes somebody to make the gun shoot them the gun doesn't do it itself."
Some still can't understand why private citizens need to have such high powered weapons and would like to see more restrictions in place, "maybe they need to keep them at the gun range or at certain places so they can't just bring them home," said gun control supporter Kevin Daniel, "so people can't have them in their homes but they can have them somewhere where they can actually go and shoot them there."
Since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School the NRA has not issued a statement. It's Facebook page has been deactivated and the organization's Twitter page has not been active.
