Mandatory Gun Ownersh_Rich copy.jpg

In this Tuesday, July 9, 2013 photo, Lawrence Cooper, 52, right, is joined by his wife Nanette, 50, on the couple's front porch, in Nelson, Ga. 'I am still firmly in favor of the law,' said Lawrence Cooper, who said he and his wife own several guns. 'I believe that if everyone had guns crime would disappear.' As the national debate over gun control swirled in the spring, a tiny Georgia city made a statement supporting gun rights by passing an ordinance requiring gun ownership. Now a national gun control group is using a lawsuit challenging that law to send a message of its own. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
