Gun control debate returns after Charleston shooting

Some aren't convinced regulations will help

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The Charleston church shooting that left nine people dead is reawakening the familiar debate on whether or not to enforce stricter gun laws in our country.

22News asked people who live right here in western Massachusetts what they think about more regulations on who can, and cannot have a gun.

Kevin Flynn of Southwick told 22News, “I feel as though they should really do more background checks and see how different parts of their life could affect how they’re doing it. I’d say as soon as possible, honestly, things are getting awful right now.”

Pete Medina of Chicopee said, “Gun handling laws are way too liberal, it should be like you driving a car, you’ll need a license before you can get behind the wheel.”

People who don’t agree with stricter gun laws say, they aren’t convinced more regulations will make our country any safer.

However, the debate continues as the country comes to grips with another mass murder.
