ABILENE, TX - The debate continues over gun control.
In response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December, President Obama signed 23 executive actions to reduce gun violence.
Although in Texas, there's very little gun regulation. One former military member disagrees with the changes.
"It makes me angry that I've spent all this money on all these nice guns and ammunition and the government is trying to take that away from me," Garrett Dunbar said.
However, is the government infringing on his constitutional right?
Abilene Gun Club Range Officer Grady Myers shared his perspective.
"The people that say you don't need an AR 15 with a 30 round magazine to hunt with, the second amendment is not about hunting," Myers said. "It's about freedom."
Recreational shooter Cliff Nelson said, "If people want to cause harm on other people they're going to find ways to do it whether its assault rifles or a knife or a pistol."
To reduce tragic shootings like the one in Newtown, Myers suggests putting trained people in schools with guns.
"I think if they do get their gun control assault weapons ban, through congress it won't due any good," Myers said. "All it will do is take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens."
