Gun Bill Causing Controversy

The only gun legislation to make it to the Governor's desk has created state-wide controversy.

The Governor signed the bill into law this month, which will not allow people seeking mental treatment to purchase a gun - even if they volunteer for commitment.

On one side, people say it will keep the guns out of the hands of those with mental illness, while others say it violates constitutional rights.

"I'm a strong supporter for the 2nd amendment so i'll be reviewing that bill like i do with other bills. But, I'm a very strong supporter for the 2nd amendment," said Scott.

The law goes into effect July 1.
