ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - While many are marching for stricter gun control, some in our area are showing off their collections. This weekend, the Omni Center in Onalaska held the annual Bob and Rocco Gun Show.
Gun enthusiasts spent the weekend buying guns and other related items from over 100 vendors.
After the recent gun control rallies, organizers said they hope people can come to shows like this and make the decision for themselves.
"Come in and see it rather than blindly make up their mind. These people don't have any idea. They think they know what it is but they're listening to the wrong people. They're making up their mind before they even see what it is themselves," said show director Ron Martin.
The gun show travels around Wisconsin. The next show will be in Madison starting on Friday.
