Measure Requiring Gun Ownership
Tue, 04-02-2013 - 10:57am

The Nelson (Ga.) City Council has unanimously passed a measure requiring every household to have a gun and ammunition.

Council members approved the Family Protection Ordinance — which requires every head of household to "to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition" — in a 5-0 vote Monday night, WXIA reported.

However, residents of the small city 50 miles north of Atlanta can opt out of the measure if they object to gun ownership. In addition, the ordinance also exempts convicted felons and those who suffer from certain physical or mental disabilities. There is no penalty for those who don't comply with the law.

As stated, this is more of a political statement than an enforceable law, but what do you think of it? Would you like your local community to adopt something similar?
