Armed to the teeth • Freedom of religion includes the right to be a nonbeliever. Freedom of speech includes the right to remain silent. And the right to bear arms includes the right not to allow a gun of any kind in your home. Sadly, another Utah town is in the process of making it government policy that no domicile should be without a firearm. The city council in Spring City, home to some 1,000 souls in Sanpete County, is preparing a resolution that would encourage all residents to have a gun, ostensibly for self-defense, more accurately as a political statement that, no matter how many mass murders there are in American schools, the Second Amendment right to be armed is inviolate. Unlike a law passed 13 years ago in Virgin, the Spring City resolution would be a recommendation, not a requirement. And Virgin doesn't actually enforce its mandate. Still, the idea that any level of government would encourage everyone, willing or not, emotionally fit or no, to arm themselves is a concession to an image of an America ruled by a law of the jungle that does not befit a civilized society.
