    Not really in favor of government...be it local, state, or federal, mandating that individuals participate in a "Right" or purchase something. It's not really a "right" to do something if you're forced to do it.

    Surely a right is a choice. By making it compulsory, it ceases to be a right and becomes an obligation.

    Well, it's 2013 so we'll update it for the times. You must meet a daily forum posting quota or go to jail!

    Technically correct but there is a tax penalty for many if not covered by "qualifying health care coverage":

    Individuals who do not obtain or retain qualifying health care coverage will be required to pay a penalty as part of their income tax returns. In 2014, the penalty is $95 or 1 percent of the individual’s income, whichever is greater. By 2016, it increases to $695 or 2.5 percent of income. For families, the maximum penalty is three times the per-person flat-dollar penalty. The penalty for dependent children without coverage is half the cost of the individual flat-dollar penalty (e.g., $47.50 in 2014).

    (a) In order to provide for the emergency management of the city, and further 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.
    (b)Exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who suffer a physical or mental disability which would prohibit them from using such a firearm. Further exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who are paupers or who conscientiously oppose maintaining firearms as a result of beliefs or religious doctrine, or persons convicted of a felony.

    Yup. Kennesaw did it years ago as a form of publicity stunt and protest against that decade's gun control crap. It was worded in such a way that it is effectively meaningless except as a statement of principle.

    Anything that was ACTUALLY mandatory, I would oppose, for two reasons...
    One, it is statist and probably unConstitutional...


    Two... one of the last things in the world I'd want to do is FORCE someone to possess a gun if they disliked/feared them and had no interest in learning to use them competently.

    Re: City looks to make gun ownership mandatory

    The point of arguing against gun control is the stupid laws that do nothing to improve safety and are an undue restriction on legal rights. The idiots in that city have accomplished an impressive feat: they have managed to write legislation that matches the stupidity and infringement of liberty of many local firearms ordinances. It takes a special kind of fool to turn a pro-second amendment position into nanny-state behavior.

    forcing firearms ownership is just as ****ing stupid and wrongheaded as banning firearm ownership.
