Maine gun dealers, users on US gun laws

Gun Show Enthusiasts on U.S. gun laws

LEWISTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --

It's been two weeks since the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
On October 1, a gunman killed more than 50 people and injured hundreds during a shooting rampage on the Las Vegas strip.
The incident re-ignited the debate over whether or not America needs tougher gun laws.

NEWS CENTER went to JT Reid’s gun show taking place at the Ramada hotel in Lewiston this weekend.
We did an informal poll of gun dealers and owners there, asking what they would do if they were in charge of America's mental health and gun laws for one day.
The answers ranged widely, from giving gun owners more freedoms to ordering tougher background checks to identify individuals with mental health problems and preventing them from getting guns. .

Watch our story and let us know what you would do if you could change America’s gun and mental health laws in the comments.
