MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) - At the Abba Shrine Temple, the more the line outside moved, the more people kept coming.
"I think its wonderful, it's a great celebration of the 2nd Amendment and people to exercise their constitutional rights and I'm real proud of everybody that's here," gun owner Joe Kulakowski said.
Many people came with guns in hand for a gun show, while others hoped to leave with the same. "I came here to buy as many guns and as many bullets as I can get because Obama's taking the rights away from us," Frank Williams said.
His feeling was common among folks who showed up; fearing the push by President Obama for tougher gun laws after the Sandy Hook tragedy would only hurt people who already follow existing laws.
"Its less about protecting our children and more about attacking the 2nd Amendment," Carmen Lilly said.
This week, Vice President Joe Biden held wide ranging meetings seeking input for the Gun Violence Task Force. One suggestion: new technology could help. "There's a lot could change if, for example, every gun purchased could only be fired by the person who purchased it," Biden said.
Meanwhile, at the gun show, people had no problem sharing their frustration with the White House's efforts. "The king is doing pretty much what he wants so far, we'll just see how far he can go," Billy McClain said, referring to Obama.
"With his presidential signature, he thinks he can do anything, he's not going to become the King of the United States, we're not going to let him," Willams added, "The South will rise again if it has to."
For the crowd filling Abba Shrine, the only solution to gun violence is to keep exercising their 2nd Amemdment rights.
"I think it's horrible to blame a gun for other problems in this country," another gun owner said.
