Idaho town issues call to arms

`After seeing the chaos of Hurricane Katrina, a city councilor in this tiny Idaho town founded by pacifist Quakers came up with a novel idea.

Ordinance 208, passed by the City Council on Tuesday, asks Greenleaf’s 862 residents who do not object on religious or other grounds to keep a gun at home in case they are overrun by refugees from the Gulf Coast.

“This is not an ‘it’ll never happen here’ kind of thing,” said Steven Jett, the ordinance’s sponsor. “We could get refugees.”‘
