After Wednesday's shooting in San Bernardino, major gun control amendments were voted down in the Senate Thursday, and now local activists are reacting.    

The Senate voted down amendments like universal background checks.

Annette Magnus, the executive director with Battle Born Progress hopes political leaders will take action on stricter gun violence protection laws.  "It's time that we stop thinking and praying and posting things on Facebook," says Magnus.

"We need to actually do something about this problem."  

Bob Irwin, the owner of The Gun Store, disagrees with political leaders taking action on stricter laws.  

"Somehow restricting firearms to victims is going to [those crimes] from happening, but that is twisted and stupid thinking," says Iriwn.
