Touring in northeastern Minnesota Thursday, Congressman Rick Nolan is fielding a whole lot of questions about what he's getting done in Washington.

But ahead of a forum in downtown Duluth's Holiday Center, protestors met the Democrat outside with signs in hand.

Bob Woods, with a group called Second Amendment for Everyone, of SAFE, came with questions for Nolan about his position on gun control legislation.

Woods told Eyewitness News "we have committed no crimes but we are the ones being punished...there are people in this country that are trying to take away rights from us that are guaranteed by the second amendment."

Later, Nolan said "there have always been limitations on guns. "It is nothing new the suggestion that we should take a look at something particularly when it has become such a serious problem around the country."

Nolan said he is a hunter and a sportsman and believes in the right to bear arms. But at the same time, he says there are serious problems with gun violence in America.
