"I think that there should be more mental health and counseling services for people instead of gun control," said Sarah Duerr.
"We've had guns all our life. I mean, I was raised around shotguns and 22s and things like that. And you didn't see any of us going out and blowing anybody away," said Patsy Williams.
"It's always people behind the guns," said David Kessler. "Whether or not you use it for lawful purposes or not, it takes a person to pull the trigger."
But that's not stopping people from buying guns. In fact, the Shootin' Shop in North Abilene has seen more people coming despite news of the shooting in Connecticut.
"You see a little surge, you know, you never know what the politicians are doing or thinking," said owner Patrick Cowen.
Already a busy year for Patrick and his store because of the election, he says it's normal to see this trend. Especially because those with fire arms are afraid the politicians will pull the trigger on stricter gun-control laws.
"No telling what's going to happen, or if they're even going to try and go after our fire arms with this recent tragedy," said Patrick.
But Patrick says it shouldn't be about the guns, it should be about the people who use the guns.
"The guns don't have a brain. You know, people have brains," said Patrick. "And you know, you need to tackle the mental illness factor and get those people accounted for and make sure they don't get in possession of fire arms."
