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.

We do not have to worry about people in Alaska depriving us of Constitutional rights. It is people in New York City, who have been deprived of their rights for a hundred years, and now wish to deprive everyone else of their rights, that we have to worry about.

Many Alaskans...?


Just how many? Who came up with that figure? Exactly, how many are for gun control and how many are for freedoms granted to have a gun by the Constitution?

A ratio for gun control 99% to 1%? Or is it truthfully .00001% to 99.99999% to keep and bear arms?

Who the hell takes these surveys? The ministry of propaganda?

“I mean if you figure we have 300,000,000 guns in this country.

I would be willing to bet that number is on the low side.

the only people in Alaska that can be for it must have frozen to death by now.

Having a firearm there is more important than having a car.
