In Appleton, half a year after the Sandy Hook School Shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, a group rallied to remember the victims of the shooting, and used the event to push for tougher gun laws, but not everyone is on board with the group's message.
With signs in hand, these ralliers reminded drivers in downtown Appleton about the Sandy Hook School shooting. Volunteers with Organizing for Action of the Fox Valley say this rally served another purpose.
"To let people know that we have not forgotten and that we will not forget until Congress enacts common sense gun violence prevention legislation," said Ann Muenster
"It's about time we had sensible gun laws and sensible regulation. It's just too dangerous," said
But just down the road at Fox Valley Firearms, owner Nathan Oberg had a response. He said he respects the memories of the Sandy Hook victims, but said attacking guns is not the answer.
"To say that one tool caused the problem, it's the person with the tool, not the tool itself," explained Oberg.
Ralliers told us they'd like to see expanded background checks on firearm purchases. There is a bill in Congress that would mandate checks for internet and gun show sales.
"So it would close those loopholes," said Muenster.
"I'd like to see a registry for hand guns, for rifles, also we need limits on gun sales," said Dompowell.
Oberg told us he'd rather see mental health issues addressed and possibly guns for protection in schools.
"I wouldn't be against having trained officials in schools with lock boxes," said Oberg.
Oberg told us at the end of the day, however, both sides just want to stop another incident like the Sandy Hook shooting.
"So many people think we're so far apart, but we're really very close. They don't want gun violence and I don't want gun violence," explained Oberg.
The sides just differ on how to solve the problem.
The bill to close the gun show and internet loopholes is being discussed in the House Judiciary Committee.
