    1 home SD gun - proposed ordinance.

    From NRA-ILA - forget where else this type of deal was considered but - whether it runs or not, I do like to see promotion of home defence.

    Henry Statkowski is a councilman in Cherry Tree Borough in Indiana County, Pa. He is proposing - and borough council is considering - an ordinance recommending that households in Cherry Tree have at least one firearm with ammunition for self-defense purposes.

    There was a town in Georgia that did it back in the 90's I believe, and a town in Utah that recently passed such legislation

    While it sounds great, what of those who would not defend themselves. too many guns would be in the wrong hands, also AD's would probably be more common.
    A gun in the wrong hands(untrained, ingnorant) is a bad thing.

    Although I am obviously pro gun, I wont support legislation that mandates a "nanny" society of any kind. Gun ownership is a very personal thing, and I don't think this is a bad idea but I be pissed off if I was required to keep such an item in my home if I did not want it.

    True enough - the ''nanny'' aspect is indeed a factor - and as also mentioned, not everyone is gonna want or even be well enough capable of safe gun ownership, leaving aside their constitutional right of course.

    I guess the idea of a gun in every home is superficially at least, one to engender a smile - but the practical issues go way beyond that.

    If I weren't home, and an invasion robbery were to occur with my wife and children home, the firearm would more likely be used to terrorize my family than be used to stop a threat.

    My beloved wife just does not get the whole self-defense thing. So while the idea seems on the surface to be a good idea, rocky hit the nail on the head. Too great a chance to put weapons in the hands of those we don't want to have weapons in the first place.

    Not A Good Idea...

    A gun used to kill a BG inside someone's home...is a GOOD thing.
    A gun taken away and used against a family would only feed the anti's positions.

    You cannot make pro-gunners by passing such laws...they must be educated...one at a time...

    You're thinking of Kennesaw, GA. They passed the ordinance in '82 and it took effect in 1983.

    Their crime rate plummeted after it's pasage. Check out the city's historical society's statistics on it. Here's a few webpages on it and its success:

    Good Story
    About.com site - see the 4th paragraph

    I believe there have been two other towns in the past 6 months to try this. Too early to tell about their success. We'll know in another year or two. I would love to see ordinances like this passed in a lot of places - maybe the media won't be able to conveniently forget about them.

    I think what would be a more benficial proposition would be to pass laws nation wide that are more like New Hampshire. If you are legally fit to carry or own a firearm, good on ya, hope you do so.

    Take away the requirements necessary to obtain states permission, and more people would do so. I do like NC's idea of allowing the permit to replace the buyers permit and the NICS check, but the requirements are almost excruciating.

    The story states that the ordinance would only recomend.. not require so that those for what ever reason are uncomfortable,scared or whatever of firearms do not have to feel obligated to have one.

    thanks
