HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S PROPOSAL TO BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS AND LIMIT MAGAZINE CLIPS?

“I think they should allow teachers and officials who have CHLs to carry them in class and protect those kids. I don’t think anything should be banned. Criminals obviously don’t follow laws in the first place so putting a ban on them isn’t going to stop them.”

- Natalia Gibson, 29, of Keller

“They’re not gonna get my guns. We have a right to bear arms. If you have somebody that’s gonna get a gun, they are gonna get one regardless. It’s government trying to take over. You give up that, they are going to get something else and then you ain’t gonna have nothing.”

- Wayne White, 60, of Lake Bridgeport

“If someone is going to do something they are going to do it. And we do some hog hunting in Cottondale. We are overpopulated with hogs. We use some AR-15s to hunt them. If you take those away it gives them an upper hand.”

- Stephen White, 23, of Bridgeport

“It’s a second amendment right. Our Founding Fathers understood what it’s like to live under tyranny, under despotism. It was one of the things they talked about specifically … Gun laws only affect law-abiding citizens.”

- Tory Arnold, 45, of Runaway Bay
