A Central Oregon man who's been selling guns at his hobby business for more than 25 years has seen tighter rules in the past, and doesn't believe more regulation again will work to stop gun violence.
 
Marvin Mills is responding to the sweeping gun control package unveiled by the President on Wednesday.  While he says the Sandy Hook shooting was very tragic, he describes some moves  by politicians as "knee-jerk" reactions. 
 
Mills says one reason that the issue is so emotional is because gun owners and others that he knows feel very strongly about protecting the constitution. 
 
Mills spoke with 1110 KBND news Thursday morning.
 
"it goes back so far to the beginning of this country- its going to be an emotional issue- i just talked to a person i know from l-a. and she didn't see any reason for a person to have  firearms- she didn't know anyone who grew up hunting- but i grew up hunting- it's a way of life- its family time."
 
Mills sold guns during the Clinton adminstration bans when ammunition was more regulated and there were waiting periods for hand gun purchases.  He says he didn't see any evidence that those rules were effective to a large degree.  He says criminals and the mentally disturbed will still find ways to get guns, regardless of the laws in place.
