One ultra safe U.S. city requires gun ownership

February 1, 2013

Kennesaw, Georgia requires gun ownership, and is one of the safest family towns in America

(NaturalNews) It has been featured as one of the top 10 best towns in America  for families by Family Circle magazine, and it has one of the lowest  crime rates in the entire Atlanta metropolitan area. But one little-known fact  about Kennesaw, Georgia, population 30,000, is that heads of household living in  the town are required by law to own at least one firearm. And this atypical  mandate has played a crucial role in making Kennesaw the safe, family-friendly  town that it is today.

Originally passed by the Kennesaw City Council  with a unanimous vote back in 1982, the law’s stated purpose is to “protect the  safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants.” And over  the past 30-or-so years since the law’s enactment, police and other local  officials have on numerous occasions told the media that Kennesaw’s gun  ownership law has resulted in a drastic crime reduction throughout the  area.

“When the law was passed in 1982, there was a substantial drop in  crime … and we have maintained a really low crime rate since then,” explained  police Lt. Craig Graydon to Reuters back in 2007 following the Virginia  Tech shootings about the Kennesaw gun law. “We are sure it is one of the lowest  (crime) towns in the metro area.”

That story pretty much says it all.  Yet little perverts like Rahm Emmanuel and Michael Bloomberg continue to stink up the air around them crying for more gun control … even though their cities are some of the most dangerous in America.

    One small town figured out what the big cities like Chicago just can’t get a grip on – that crime goes down not UP when good people have guns to protect themselves! The bad guys will always be able to get illegal guns and use them against unarmed good citizens. Chicago continues to have one of the highest gun crimes despite having one of the strictest gun laws. Go figure!
