Utah City Council Proposes Gun in Every Home (Video)

The city council of Spring City, Utah believes more guns means less crime. The city council recommends that every head of household own a firearm. They believe that guns in the hands of properly trained citizens will deter any criminal.

KUTV has more:

A city councilman in Spring City, Utah is proposing to have a gun in every home – however not every resident is in agreement with the proposal.

Neil Sorensen initially wanted to require all 340 homes in Spring City to have a gun – but his proposal was met with disagreement from the community.

Many residents of the rural town of 1,000 residents said they had never had a problem with crime, but many, including the San Pete County Sheriff said they were concerned about many people, including the mentally ill, getting a gun in their hands.

In response, Sorensen said the ordinance he was looking for a way to ensure that every residence was prepared to protect themselves against intruders. Sorensen changed the language of the proposal, making it a recommendation for residents to have guns instead of a requirement after he was met with negative feedback. Many residents now say they are hesitant but think it may be beneficial.

    You’re right, if everyone were driving around drunk we’d have less drunk drivers on the road.

    By you response, then I would think you would prefer gun owners keep their guns. But hey we know why lib’s fear Americans with guns

    By he way, you seemed to have missed the point, the drunk driver killed 5 not himself or other drunks.

    OT follow-up to Alex Jones’ CNN/Piers Morgan debate. He gave himself an “A” and also had this to say:

    “When I was at CNN a decade ago, it was glistening,” he said. Now, he said, “it looks like Hitler’s bunker….torn-up carpet, feces all over the wall and on the floor in the bathroom. It’s rotting.

    “Folks, I’ve been in those exact rooms,” he added. “It literally looked like a gas station bathroom in the worst part of town. It was rotting and those people were in hell. It’s a skeleton of what it was, it’s a globalist operation and they’re nothing.” He said he didn’t bother to wear a jacket for his appearance because “I don’t respect that show.”

    Civil disopbedience by millions or civil war to protect our nation and US Constitution from the usurper fraud called Obama? Which will it be?

    Biden: Obama Might Use Executive Order to Deal With Guns.

    “Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns.

    “The president is going to act,” said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. “There are executives orders, there’s executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required.”

    Biden said that this is a moral issue and that “it’s critically important that we act.”

    Biden talked also about taking responsible action. “As the president said, if you’re actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking. But I’m convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of americans and take thousands of people out of harm’s way if we act responsibly.”

    Biden, as he himself noted, helped write the Brady bill.

    Eric Holder was scheduled to be at the meeting that’s currently take place at the White House.”

    Remember when the left pretended they liked the Second Amendment? That’s passé. Today, Democrats around the country are preparing for a big gun grab, the likes of which the Republic has never before seen. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has actually publicly pitched all-out gun confiscation (or alternatively, forced gun buybacks), is now preparing grandiose new legislation designed to strip New Yorkers of “assault weapons,” as well as restrict the size of magazines. In the only provision actually designed to reduce crime, Cuomo will also propose harsher penalties for using a gun in the commission of a crime.

    Cuomo recognizes that what’s he’s doing is politically divisive. But in today’s America, he also recognizes that he’ll be rewarded by the media for cramming down political divisive gun control, even if it does nothing to stop violence. “It’s a very divisive topic,” said Cuomo. “There’s a lot of energy on both sides. Some people are vehemently against, some people think we’re out of our minds for not passing it … Gun control is highly political, politically contentious situation. It is polarizing.” [……………..]

    Ted Nugent unloads: Gun owners the next Rosa Parks

    [“There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the
    law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks and
    we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed.”]

    there is a God, and we are the people, Amen..

    Kennesaw Gergia has had this law for over a decade. The surrounding towns had to

    adopt similar laws due to the crime going up in their cities.

    It works and it is a right you should exercise.

    Granted some people should not even have drivers license.

    more gun control, misinformation

    A False Ad About Assault Weapons

    [Machine Guns Still Illegal

    Contrary to what the ad clearly implies, any weapon that can fire 300 rounds per minute remains illegal for civilians to own without specific clearance by the US Department of Justice.

    In fact, machine guns have been tightly regulated since the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934, in the wake of the gangster era. Legal ownership of a machine gun requires an extensive federal background check, fingerprinting, signed clearance from the chief of local law enforcement (such as a county sheriff), a $200 excise tax, and weeks of paperwork. That was true before the assault-weapon ban was enacted in 1994, and it remains true with the expiration of the ban at midnight Sept. 13, 2004.

    That’s made clear in a question-and-answer document posted Sept.
    13 on the Web site of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
    Explosives (ATF), explaining the effect of the expiration of the assault
    -weapon ban:

    ATF: All provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) relating to registration and transfer of machine guns . . . still apply.

    The fully automatic version of the AK47 — pictured and described
    in the ad — remains just as illegal as it was before the ban expired.]

    Connecticut Murderer Did NOT Use Automatic Weapons

    [These are semi-automatic weapons only, which is a fancy way
    of saying they fire one bullet every time you pull the trigger.

    This is the best crime prevention tactic ever. Having worked in a prison, the inmates tell you they stay away from homes that have security systems??????

  • michael mcphee

    leslie, your logic is a little twisted…. what youre purporting is that if we reduce the amount of vehicles… or lets say theres a stat that a certain vehicle has a higher number of drunk drivers.. that if we remove those vehicles from the road the country miraculously turns sober…. common, use your head…. they’ll buy a different car
    tools/inanimate objects are just that…. what if that psychopath had gotten into a car and drove it into the playground and ran over the kids… would we be removing cars from americans…..

    .. go ahead leslie, cheer on you reperesentatives to continue to systematically remove every right your forbears fought for… it’s your prerogative as free person… til some twat decides we don’t deserve that one either.
