Utah town makes arming households a top priority - Article Photos 1/3

Spring City Councilman Neil Sorensen stands in front of the City Hall Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, in Spring City, Utah. Officials in a small Utah town are urging citizens and teachers to arm themselves for everyone's safety against any aggressor. One member of the Spring City council wants to make the edict mandatory, but police are urging restraint. Councilman Neil Sorensen says he's drafting a measure that will go before the full council in February. At first, Sorensen wanted to mandate a gun in every household in the town of 1,000. But the Sanpete County sheriff didn't think it was a good idea to force households to own guns, so Sorensen says he's inclined to make it a recommendation, not a law. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
