Were just about a month away from all of the state and local elections. Campaigns are starting to heat up and were finding out where candidates stand on the issues. One important issue in this years elections no doubt will be gun control.
In the 18th Congressional District race, Aaron Shock and Steve Waterworth are weighing in on the issue
"If we have strict laws the only people that have guns are the criminals and that's not a good thing for any law abiding citizen so I actually do not think the solution is more gun laws. I think unfortunately those type of travesties happen whether it's been done with a gun in the case of Colorado or certainly the Beason family outside of Lincoln Illinois was beat to death by baseball bats and clubs. So I think that people who want to inflict harm on other human beings are going to do it with whatever weapon is available to them."
"It's like the genie is out of the bottle it's almost impossible to put gun control regulations back in that would be effective to stop some madman that wants to kill a lot of people with guns every place. And it's not a problem that can be solved with just a few laws, I think we need to look at some laws but I just don't think there's anything we can do to be effective."
