Many Alaskans Against More Gun Control

In the wake of the most recent mass shooting in Newtown, CT, Gun control has become a hot topic nationwide.

In a press conference Friday President Barack Obama said, "We're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics."

Even though the President's statement was vague many feel that more strict gun control laws is the direction he is pursuing, especially customers at Wild West Guns in Anchorage.

“I mean if you figure we have 300,000,000 guns in this country, how many are used in crimes? Statistically it’s insignificant and incidents like the one in Connecticut are even more statistically insignificant. That’s not to minimize the tragedy, it’s horrible. but you're never going to be able to prevent it with laws,” said Wild West Guns store manager Ken Feinman.
