Spring City, UT is considering a requirement that all property owners be armed and properly trained. A potential robber would have to be foolish to consider breaking into any home in this city. Will it pass?
There are 340 homes in this city and for the most part, they are not even worried about crime as it is.
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.
