A gun in every household? Utah town drafting a resolution

Councilman Neil Sorensen of Spring City, a small town of 1,000 90 miles south of Salt Lake City, is drafting a resolution calling for every household to be armed and be trained. It would be non-binding; you could opt out.

It would be ironic if the law was written so that anyone who opts out has to put a sign on their front door announcing that “This household is not armed.”

    Guns are one of the most common items stolen during break-ins. Sounds like a good way to ensure every house has something worth stealing.

      If you encourage concealed carry as well as “a gun in every home,” then a burglar will look at an occupied home as a place where they face death, and they’d look at an unoccupied home as the place where the homeowner took his gun with him when he left.

        Shades of Kennesaw GA, where the crime rate dropped after such a law.

    What?! Big government is telling me what to do….Never. 🙂 You know what comes next… telling me what gun to buy?

      I was going to point out that the government cannot mandate that people go out and buy certain things. Then I remembered that the US Supreme Court, in ruling on Obamacare, established that the government *can* mandate that citizens have to buy certain commercial products. So… yeah, there’s that.
