Supporters of gun control and gun rights watch the Senate's next move

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, AZ (TNN) –  The defeat of a gun control bill in the Senate brought protestors to the doorstep of Senator Jeff Flake's Tucson office Friday morning.

About 70 protestors with groups such as Tucson Community Against Gun Violence gathered along Oracle Road to criticize Flake's vote against the bill.  Flake has said that the bill was too broad and wants to focus on background checks at gun shows and not venture into the private transactions.  But those in the group said that he has not taken a stand that they demand and will remember at his next election in 2018.

Meanwhile on Friday afternoon Gun Owners of Arizona held a drawing for an AR-15 giveaway.  They said that no more regulations on gun sales should be enacted.  They, too, will be watching Senator Flake's next move.

Senator John McCain voted for the bill this week.
