A small town in Maine has unanimously voted against a law requiring every household to have a gun and ammunition.
About 50 people from Byron — out of a total population of 140 — attended a town meeting Monday night and all voted to oppose the law, CNN reported.
A town selectwoman, who also voted against the law, said she wants the law to be tweaked and reintroduced.
"We had some great ideas and great conversations. I think we will come back with a more comprehensive ordinance, maybe stronger wording for exemptions," Anne Simmons-Edmunds said.
She added that a group of residents are against the proposed law, but the majority of townspeople support it.
The law doesn't include an enforcement component, CNN reported.
Maine's state Sen. John Patrick, who lives about 20 km outside Byron, told CNN the law is unnecessary.
Last week, citizens of Nelson, Ga., approved mandatory gun ownership.
