CRAIG, Colo. (AP) -- The Craig City Council is pondering a request that would require heads of households within Craig city limits to have a modern sporting rifle capable of accepting high-capacity magazines.

Craig resident Craig Rummel said Tuesday coal, power and hunting are the city's life-blood and all three are under attack by lawmakers.

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

The Craig Daily Press reports Rummel says he wants city leaders to send a message that new laws and regulations are hurting their economy.
