Georgia town looks to make gun ownership mandatory

A town in Georgia is set to vote on an ordinance next month that would make it illegal not to own a gun.

According to the ordinance:

"In order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants, every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefore."

Now there are exceptions to the law, for instance if you suffer from a mental disability, you've been convicted of a felony or it goes against your religious beliefs.

But will more guns in more homes, really make folks safer?

    If I live in a city that forces me to OWN a gun then I refuse to pay taxes for any form of law enforcement or judicial system.
