A small north Georgia town with a population of about 1,300 has passed a law that requires homeowners to own guns.
A city in northern Georgia is giving the term "bucking the trend" new meaning, as city officials are mulling an ordinance that would actually make it a crime not to own a weapon.
"I likened it to a security sign that people put up in their front yards," said Councilman Duane Cronic, who sponsored the ordinance but nonetheless admitted it wasn't binding, in the AP report. "Some people have security systems, some people don't, but they put those signs up. I really felt like this ordinance was a security sign for our city."
Nelson City Councilman Duane Cronic said in the AP report the community is at risk, if a real emergency struck, because victims would have to rely on sheriffs from neighboring counties to make the drive and respond.
