Tiny GA Town Battles with Brady Campaign Over City’s Ordinance Requiring Gun Ownership

A small town in Georgia is facing off with a national gun control group over an ordinance that the city passed earlier this year requiring that every head of the household in the city to own a firearm.

The Family Protection Ordinance of Nelson, Georgia was adopted on April 1 and a lawsuit from The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence followed about six weeks later.

According to the ordinance, “In order to provide for the emergency management of the city, and further in order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants, every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefore.” Failure to comply with the legislation carries a hefty fine of $1,000.
