ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Following President Obama's statements Wednesday morning, Republican Congressman Don Young said he has serious concerns with the statements made today by President Obama.
Congressman Young said, "I continue to meet with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to discuss ways to address mental health, and keep guns out of the hands of madmen, all without infringing on responsible gun owner's Second Amendment rights."
Some of the specific proposals Mr. Obama made were universal background checks for all people purchasing guns and restoring a ban on military style assault weapons and a 10-round limit for magazines.
At Alaska Custom Firearms, store employee Monica Thomas said customers have been calling everyday asking for high-capacity magazines.
“We had 45 in last week and they were gone the next day. They disappear quick and it's like that all over town, I get like, 20 calls a day,” said Thomas.
