The financial drain surrounding the debate about semi-automatic weapons is hurting people in Oklahoma. 

Tracy Gunn is a single mother of two who was laid off from her job last Summer. She came up with an idea to make soap for hunters. It's called Dirty Buck Soap.  And when hunters shower with it, it covers up their human scent. 

It has become popular with local hunters.  Gunn recently spent $10,000 for a booth at the Eastern Sport Show in Pennsylvania. It begins February 2, and is one of the largest hunting expo's in the U.S. each year.

Gunn says mayor retailers she hoped to meet with at the Sport Show just pulled out, because the Sport Show just announced it won't allow semi-automatic weapons. 

"I could still go to the show, but I would be in a big building all by myself and I would get a black eye from the hunting community," she said. "You stand with the people who support you and I stand with them all day long." 

Besides being out $10K, Gunn says she probably would've made more than $50,000 at the 10-day long event.
