The small town of Nucla, Colorado, with a population of 750, passed the state's first and only municipal ordinance in 2014 requiring heads of households to own guns and ammo, “in order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the town and its inhabitants.”
“We more or less kind of wanted to give criminals a heads up. Stay out of this town. We're armed,” stated board member Richard Craig.

If someone tries to hurt you blast them…no more problem…
Nucla passed this ordinance in 2014, not last year. Like the similar law in Kennesaw, Ga. it is unenforceable and unenforced. Both were passed as a protest against gun control laws in other areas, not to reduce crime. While violent crime has generally dropped across America, neither of these laws has had any measurable effect.
It’s a political statement, not a crime deterrent.
Jess F Nelson The Fags pay for their own parades. No fat draft-dodging,$#%&!@*grabbing, illiterate man-child orders them to march and then sends you the bill.
It was never intended to cut crime. It was a protest vote against gun-control laws elsewhere. The Chief of Police admits it’s unenforceable and that his department has NEVER ATTEMPTED to enforce it. He doesn’t pretend that every homeowner owns a gun and he doesn’t care. Crime in Kennesaw has ticked up slightly in the last few years, even as the national crime rate plummeted, under Obama.
Great place to live,all conservatives should move near there.
A very reasonable action !
Wish more towns and cities would do this.
