"You know I don't have a problem with stricter gun control," Harris said. "But I don't think, from what I've read so far, that the measures that they are going to implement are going to make any big difference."
Gun stores stayed busy Wednesday morning through President Obama's proposal of stricter gun laws.
But some Lubbock residents are crying foul.
"If they implement laws, the problem is assault rifles and the magazines are already in the hands of the American public," Harris said. "So I don't see that really stopping anybody."
Gun owner Luke Harris does not think the new laws will stop those who are determined to do harm.
"What bothers me is that they are going to do all this thinking that this is going to fix the situation," Harris said. "And then it is going to happen again."
"If somebody is really crazy and wants to get a gun, they are going to do it," Dr. Frank Aparile said.
One of the changes they talked about making to the gun laws is requiring stricter background checks as well as mental health checks.
Both Aparile and Harris say they are OK with those changes.
"Well the mental health checks definitely," Aparile said.
"I'm all for background checks and I don't have a problem with some kind of mental history check," Harris said. "I would submit to that myself."
Dr. Frank Aparile spent part of his Wednesday shopping for ammunition.
He said he thinks mental health is not the only thing distributors should look at.
"If you say yes that you drink a lot or you're an alcoholic or something like that, you shouldn't be allowed to buy a gun," Aparile said. "But I mean how many Texans do we know that drink a lot of beer and own a lot of guns and go out and shoot for fun?"
But Dr. Aparile said more guns in the hands of the public--not less---is the better solution.
"Open carry, conceal carry," Aparile said. "Honestly you're not going to shoot somebody if they've got a gun and can shoot back."
