Guns Are Now Required For Citizens Of Nelson, GeorgiaKATE BRUMBACK APRIL 2, 2013, 7:00 AMNELSON, Ga. (AP) — Backers of a newly adopted ordinance requiring gun ownership in a small north Georgia town acknowledge they were largely seeking to make a point about gun rights.The ordinance in the city of Nelson — population 1,300 — was approved Monday night and goes into effect in 10 days. However, it contains no penalties and exempts anyone who objects, convicted felons and those with certain mental and physical disabilities.City Councilman Duane Cronic, who sponsored the measure, said he knows the ordinance won’t be enforced but he still believes it will make the town safer.“I likened it to a security sign that people put up in their front yards. Some people have security systems, some people don’t, but they put those signs up,” he said. “I really felt like this ordinance was a security sign for our city.”Another purpose, according to the city council’s agenda, is “opposition of any future attempt by the federal government to confiscate personal firearms.”Council members in Nelson, a small city located 50 miles north of Atlanta, voted unanimously to approve the Family Protection Ordinance. The measure requires every head of household to own a gun and ammunition to “provide for the emergency management of the city” and to “provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants.”Nelson resident Lamar Kellett was one of five people who spoke during a public comment period Monday night and one of two who opposed the ordinance. Among his many objections, he said it dilutes the city’s laws to pass measures that aren’t intended to be enforced....
I'm sure their new pretend-law will also keep them safe from fake Creeping Sharia in the same way the Waving a Chicken Over Your Head Law now keeps them safe from elephants:
Why are you waving that chicken around over your head? To keep the elephants away. Does it work? You don’t see any elephants around here, do you?
Because nothing shouts "Respect the rule of law" louder than a town full of paranoid Limbaugh ditto heads passing laws which they have no intention of enforcing.
