CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. - There has been a push from lawmakers, from moms and dads, both online and in their communities for Washington to do something about the gun violence.
Wednesday, we learned that now more than one million people have concealed carry permits in Florida.
One Charlotte County gun shop owner says since Friday's shooting, they've been extra busy with buyers coming in to get guns because they're afraid soon, they wont be able to.
He says guns are making the state safer.
Other folks say, stricter laws could prevent these mass shootings.
"Where else are they going to target? They did the mall, they did the school, they did the movie theatres. No where is safe. They need to do something and they need to do it fast," says Pat Williams.
"Everything that happened in the school was illegal... gun on school grounds. Every time this happens, there no law that hasn't been in place that should make it illegal," says Carl Joseph of Sportrap Gun Shop.
Joseph says, since Friday's tragedy, he's gotten about 30 calls a day from people asking how laws will change.
