JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) - After President Obama made a public announcement about his thoughts on gun control, many at Schupbach's Sporting Goods store said they think the president's initiatives are politically motivated and that the gun control debate is more complicated than lawmakers and the media make it out to be.
"They're not even going to consider putting an armed guard in a school or allowing teachers to carry guns. Like it's not even an option. Like it wouldn't work," said Tom Irwin, a salesperson at the shop.
Irwin has worked at Schupbach's Sporting Goods says more gun control is not the answer to mass shootings.
"I can carry my gun in Walmart, but I can't carry it in a school. Why am I more likely to kill people when I'm in a school than in Walmart? It's ridiculous. Yet that's a gun-free zone. If you're a criminal, you're going to go to the gun-free zone. There's a pretty good chance you're not going to get shot there," said Irwin.
Irwin and other customers called the president's announcement Wednesday "political."
"He's just furthering his agenda. He wants gun control. He wants his fingers in your life."
He says a lot of gun owners and retailers are in the dark about it means for them.
"We're basically saying we're going to do what we already do but we're going to find a different way to do it."
Tougher laws and more control, he says, won't stop criminals.
"Sandy Hook, the guy broke over 40 laws to do what he did. Laws aren't going to help. People just have to be able to defend themselves against it."
During the president's speech, Barron's reported that the stock of one of the leading gun-makers, Smith and Wesson, jumped 3 percent.
