LEE CO., GA (WALB) - A Lee County gun dealer said President Obama has been great for gun sales.

Georgia Loan & Gun owner Steven Drew said that each time the President calls for stronger gun laws, owners get nervous about their gun rights and sales spike.

"Barack Obama is known in the industry as the greatest gun salesman of the century. Every time that the President opens his mouth and starts talking about gun control we see a dramatic increase in gun sales. In fact, last month was a record month for gun sales. Over 22 million background checks," said Drew.

Drew said he believes the government needs to focus on treating people with mental illness instead of pushing for more gun regulations.
