It's an issue that has been volleyed back and forth, not only at the state level but the national level. Gun Control, and it's still undetermined which side the ball will land on in the U.S. Senate.
Tuesday in Davenport Quad Citians spoke out for and against the idea.
Quad Citians for Responsible Gun Laws got together today to ask U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley to send legislation for stronger gun laws to the senate.
Art Heyderman was one of the speakers. He worked for the U.S. Army for years researching and developing guns and says they're dangerous. He says the Supreme Court has already upheld the second amendment, so now, it's a matter of what kind of guns to prohibit.
But not all Quad Citians are on the same page. Mike Hauser is a gun enthusiast, and doesn't think there should be a ban on assault riffles.
He adds that there's no proof that making guns illegal will make anyone any safer, and laws are only there to stop people who follow them.
Senator Grassley is the top Republican on the committee that could introduce the gun control bill into the Senate.
