A small town in north Georgia has passed a law requiring every household to own a gun and ammunition.

The Nelson City Council unanimously passed the ordinance last month, which will go into effect in ten days. The ordinance has no penalties and allows citizens to opt out if they have personal objections to opt out. The mentally ill, physically disabled, impoverished and felons are also exempt from the law.

Chaninat & Leeds is a US-Thailand law firm located in Bangkok, Thailand and is staffed by licensed Thai attorneys and licensed US lawyers.

The city hasn’t experienced any major violent crime in over ten years.

The new law is modeled after one passed in Kennesaw, another small Georgia town.
