(Reuters) - A small Georgia town on Monday passed a law requiring the head of each household to own a gun as a way to keep crime down.

About 10-12 miles south of me. Real small town.
It’s been that way for decades in Kennesaw.
“When seconds matter, the police are minutes away”
Sounds like sage advice to own a gun...
I live in a town of 600 people (it was about 1200 when I was young) and the percentage of homes with guns is almost 100% without a law.
There are differences, some have very full gun cabinets in the den. And a few antlers on the walls. And in the shop is a lot of reloading equipment.
For those fools who stupidly and selfishly spoke out against it, one has to wonder if the thought that any criminal would think if they had signs up at the city limits like the zero tolerance for drugs signs I see?
They would have to take a wild guess who did and who didn't. Then if those same fools began some legal action against it, just have the neighbor put a security sign up in his yard. I would wager my home they never thought of these.
The answer to insanity is NOT more insanity.
This sounds like a setup.
Or rather being realistic because the police do take minutes to respond.
What is the difference between mandatory purchase of health care insurance and firearms?
Big difference is that it is a local town decision, Obamacare is nationwide.
Watch this video and pass it around.
Good point to bring up. More hypocrisy from the Obama cabal. The unconstitutionally twice elected Kenyan forces me to buy health insurance, which is not a constitutional right, while the other “health insurance” is banned which *is* a constitutional right.
This is not a first for Georgia. Kennesaw,
Georgia passed such an ordinance two or three decades ago and it immediately cut down on the crime rate. See John Lott’s book. “More guns, Less crime.”
Ok. Conservatives should not be for this if we really represent freedom. Forced by government to own gun and we are aplauding really? I am 100 percent for the Second Amendment but I don’t want to be forced to own a gun by the government. I own some guns but that was by choice. What is going on with Conservatives?????
I understand your point.
I’d posit that this is no worse than requiring smoke alarms and fire extinguishers, though.
Id posit that this is no worse than requiring smoke alarms and fire extinguishers, though.
That is a good point.
>>> Big difference is that it is a local town decision, Obamacare is nationwide.
That is not what makes the ordinance unconstitutional.
Constitutional rights apply at all levels.
In this case, the town should consider erecting a sign outside town for incoming Mennonites warning them that they must violate their religious rights to comply with the law if they want to live there.
