News about the possible local impact of the president’s initiative is taking time to develop.

While a worker at B&B Shooting Supplies, Bettendorf, declined to comment Wednesday, the manager at K&K Hardware, also in Bettendorf, said that he was not sufficiently informed on the details of Obama’s proposal to comment on its possible impact.

Meanwhile, company officials at two local gun manufacturers, Les Baer, LeClaire, and Lewis Machine & Tool, Milan, were attending a trade show in Las Vegas and were not available for comment.

Websites for Les Baer and for Lewis Machine & Tool indicate possible delays in order-taking because of high demand.
