US town makes gun ownership mandatory

Small Georgia town of Nelson has approved a Family Protection Ordinance which makes gun ownership mandatory.

    A new controversial law in a small town in the United States says every home must have a gun.

    City councilors insist it will help fight crime, but opponents say there is no need for it.
