LITTLE ROCK, AR- The gun debate is not over.
Lawmakers say the gun battle will soon be back on the Senate floor.
That has some people worried, especially gun enthusiasts who say we should enforce the gun laws that are already on the books.
The issue has divided the nation.
At first, many called for a ban on certain guns and ammunition, now there are calls for tougher background checks.
Donna Terrell talks with one mother, Regina Pryor, who knows about guns, specifically , one of the most controversial, the AR-15.
"They call them assault rifles, but they are not assault rifles," says Pryor.
"If people understood the truth of the gun there would not be quite as much fear."
Pryor learned to shoot a few years ago, mainly to protect herself and her family.
"This AR-15 is one of the semi automatic rifles that's so controversial. And the "AR" doesn't stand for assault rifle, it's Armalite, the company that use to make this gun."
Supporters say they like it because it's great for protection at home. And they say it's an easy gun for a women to handle.
"Let's say you have a home invasion, that AR for the woman is going to be a lot easier for her to use than that shotgun."
But the guns do raise eyebrows among many, especially after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, where 26 people, including 20 small children were killed by a gunman using a similar rifle.
The killings have prompted strong reactions on both sides of the gun debate.
Everyone in Regina's family has been taught to shoot, including her youngest child, who is 17, and becan shoot9ing at age 8.
"We have guns in our home, we are going to have guns in our home, so I want my kids to be familiar with them, to respect them, to know how to use then and so I bring them to the range with me."
Regina says, so far, they've never had to use their guns for protection, but in case they do, they're ready.
Pryor loves the sport of shooting, and invites her non-shooting friends to the range.
"I bring them over here and let them shoot and they always leave with a smile on their face."
"I don't believe that owning a gun is necessary for everyone, because some people never get beyond that discomfort. Just like I don't want to have to disarm, I don't want to force that upon someone either."
