The battle over gun control is playing out across the nation as well as in Washington D.C., with towns and states considering gun laws they say will protect their residents' rights to bear firearms at a time when many fear the federal government will enforce weapons bans.
The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence reports more than 1,100 gun-related bills have been introduced in recent months on the state level.
Several communities also are considering ordinances to make gun ownership mandatory, reports Fox News, while others recommend keeping firearms but don't go so far as to require gun ownership.

The ‘rats are engaged in some sort of feeding frenzy.
How exactly do they expect to confiscate 400 million firearms and hundred of billions if not trillions of rounds of ammunition?
The Dem/libs have been engaging in a steady push to infringe on our right to keep and bear arms for decades. And this is how it has been working out for them in the last two decades...
And in the last two months... (Dec. 2012 and Jan. 2013)
If the lefties keep pushing gun control in another two decades one out of two Americans may be gun owners instead of one out of three.
MOLON LAVE! WE'LL BUY MORE. ;-)
The Ozombie brainwashing gun has been used overtime a lot lately. The idiot liberals are just parroting what their Communsist dictator has told them to say. They don’t even know why anymore nor have they fired a gun. They truly believe the government will protect them and that they don’t need a weapon.
“Several communities also are considering ordinances to make gun ownership mandatory, reports Fox News, while others recommend keeping firearms but don’t go so far as to require gun ownership.”
I just saw on the Fox morning show an interview about a town in Georgia that has come out with a law requiring heads of households to have firearms... unless they don’t want them. I laughed out loud.
If you want to own a firearm GREAT... if the local sherrif is willing to offer FREE firearm handling classes, EXCELLENT. But don’t make this yet another product that people MUST purchase if they don’t want it. Think Obamacare...
The intent is obvious... to enact local legislation that would reinforce the rights granted by 2A... but don’t make this a matter of “I like berries and cream... they should have a law that says we get free berries and cream on Sunday...” such talk always steers towards some tyrant from the gub’mint stating, “All citizens WILL eat berries and cream”.
Sorry, my libertarian nose twitches when something like this comes about... not much that comes from any “collective” governance (the local PTA...the Federal monster... it’s all the same) passes the smell test to me.
