Dozens of Customers Line up to Buy Guns

Posted: Updated:

People are reacting here in the Valley when it comes to the President's plan to address gun laws, in the wake of the Connecticut mass shooting. Many people fear it's a purchase they may never be able to make again.

"Scared about the ban and getting it while we can before prices go up," says Heath Oliver.

Dozens of people inside Larry's Pistol and Pawn in Huntsville said they're worried about a gun ban.  Others are just buying this year's Christmas gifts.

"It's part of our constitutional rights to carry arms," says Tim Hester, who was there to buy Christmas presents.

President Obama is urging congress to pass a ban on assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips.

The President formed a gun task force less than one week after the mass shootings at an elementary school in Connecticut.

In a press conference President Obama explained, "We're going to need to work on making access to mental health care at least as easy as access to a gun. We need to look more closely at a culture that all too often glorifies guns and violence, and any actions we must take must begin inside the home and inside our hearts."

The long lines didn't stop because some people were determined to get their weapons.

Larry's Pistol and Pawn wasn't the only busy gun store. We talked to other stores that said they were busy, too.
