NUCLA, Colo.--The tiny Colorado town of Nucla ( named by george bush ) bhas passed an ordinance making gun ownership mandatory.
The Nucla Town Board last week voted to require that residents own firearms
According to the Montrose Daily Press Nucla's ordinance passed by a 5-1 vote. It was inspired by the Family Protection Ordinance passed by the town of Nelson, Ga.
The Colorado town of less than 1,000 people becomes the latest of a handful of communities nationwide to pass such a rule. The measures are widely considered unenforceable. main reason is to protect Second Amendment rights, especially with the government talking about abolishing them," said Nucla Town Board member Joshua Newingham. "Out here, we hunt, we do sports shooting. It's a way of life."
Nucla's ordinance states that, in order to provide for the emergency management of the town and for the general public welfare, "every head of household residing in the town limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefor.
