US City With Law Mandating Gun Ownership Has Extremely Low Crime Rate

The Lid: The anti-Second Amendment crowd is on the warpath again. I live just a few miles from the most pro-gun city in the United States – Kennesaw, Georgia – where gun ownership is mandatory. It’s not the “Wild West” like some people predicted it would be when city officials passed a mandatory gun ownership law. Eleven years ago, “the city of Kennesaw was selected by Family Circle magazine in August 2007 as one of the nation’s ‘10 best towns for families.’ The award was aimed at identifying the best communities nationally that combine big-city opportunities with suburban charm, a blend of affordable housing, good jobs, top-rated public schools, wide-open spaces, and less stress.”1

Little has changed in eleven years:

CNN admitted in a report on March 7, 2018, that a Georgia town requiring gun ownership has only seen one murder in six years and maintains a violent crime rate of less than two percent….

CNN suggested the law requiring gun ownership is not actually enforced, but it simultaneously reported that the town of Kennesaw has only witnessed one murder in the past six years. In other words, just the common knowledge that guns are in the hands of law-abiding citizens appears to restrain the actions of criminals.

Kennesaw Police Department Lt. Craig Graydon said, “It was meant to be kind of a crime deterrent.”

Mayor Derek Easterling (R) focused on armed law-abiding citizens, stating, “If you’re going to commit a crime in Kennesaw and you’re the criminal — are you going to take a chance that that homeowner is a law-abiding citizen?” (Breitbart)

In 1982 the city passed the following ordinance [Sec 34-21] which was in response to a handgun ban in Morton Grove, Ill.

(a) In order to provide for the emergency management of the city, and further in order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants, every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefore.

(b) Exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who suffer a physical or mental disability which would prohibit them from using such a firearm. Further exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who are paupers or who conscientiously oppose maintaining firearms as a result of beliefs or religious doctrine, or persons convicted of a felony.  MORE HERE

  1. works in Switzerland … works in every civilized area that it is applied

    … simple logic, actually

  2. Heck yes!!!

    Kennesaw has evolved from the 1970s Doraville (touch of country in the city).
    As they have grown, they have kept their roots and values in place.

    And if you’re ever in town, visit the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Very moving.

  3. I would never allow one a scary AK47s in my house. All the AK47s I own are the non-scary ones. Mine all identify as BB guns.

  4. ONLY been that way for 36 years… guess we’ll hafta “wait & see” how it works out. 🙄

    UNLIKE Shitcago – where private gun ownership has been BANNED since 1982, and everything is… uhhhh… uhmmmm… – guess we’ll hafta “wait & see” how it works out! 😳

  5. There’s a town in either Wyoming or Montana that has the same resolution and again, Zero crime. I wish it would go Nation Wide.

  6. Any way we could get the 2nd Amendment re-worded in common, well-understood English like this GA law?

  7. By the way – the sole gun murder was at a Fedex office boasting a sign which read “Gun Free Zone”.

    Did CNN show that in the visual?

  8. I live right down the road in Acworth. Love this area, and I hope the loons at Kennesaw State don’t screw it up!!!

  9. The-Mamomma: I live minutes away as well and believe the biggest threat to this area is KSU. It hemorrhages libtards and they’re spreading like locusts.
