CRAIG, Colo. - A resident in Craig went to his city council this week with a request -- he wants the Craig City Council to require heads of households within Craig city limits to have a modern sporting rifle capable of accepting high-capacity magazines.

Council members questioned how such a law would be enforced, but they didn't reject the suggestion outright.
