ATLANTA -- Michele Williams is a casting agent and playwright in East Point whose biggest drama happened in real-life a year ago this week.

That's when her son was nearly killed in a senseless shooting at a Gwinnett County restaurant. And that's why she wants the president to forge ahead with gun control.

"With the decisions that the president is making there have to be voices being heard," she said. "People who've gone through situations that are senseless."

Brian Morgan is a bodyguard. His job is to protect people from crime. Guns are the tools of his trade.

He is against the president's plan.

"I think it's going too far; every time we have a major incident, it's sad," said Morgan. "But you always have those one or two crazies who are going to take advantage of everything. And then it puts all of us like where are we at now."

In fact, opposition to further gun control was unanimous among those we spoke with at Georgia Range and Guns in Forest Park, where most believe the 2nd amendment is inviolate.

But for those like Williams, the nation's growing epitaph of deadly violence is proof that not only should guns be tightly regulated, so should the ammunition.

"'Why are you buying these bullets? What do you need them for? What kind of weapons are you using?'" said Williams. "And so if you stop it at the bullets then they can't shoot without the bullets."

Morgan believes that kind of thinking is a recipe for disaster.

"These policies about buying certain amounts of ammunition... okay, where does that leave us security officers who do carry firearms? body guards who carry firearms?" asked Morgan.

"You're making it hard on us."
