ATLANTA (AP) -- More than 1,000 people turned out for a gun show in Cobb County.

The Eastman Gun Show in Marietta comes amid talk of tighter federal firearms restrictions in the wake of a gunman's massacre of 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school.

Several attendees told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that they came to the show to buy military style weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips that they fear may soon be banned by federal law.

"This is awesome," said Kevin Law, a gun enthusiast from Woodstock. "We knew it was going to be like this. People want to protect their rights."

President Barack Obama has called for renewing a ban on certain weapons and ammunition that were limited under the Brady Act, which expired in 2004.
