Georgia’s Safest Town Requires Citizens To Own A Gun

Safest city in Georgia legally requires all citizens to own a gun

A town in Georgia has solved America’s gun crime problem by legally requiring all citizens to own and carry a gun. 

The Kennesaw, Georgia, law states that “every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm.” reports: “It was meant to be kind of a crime deterrent,” Kennesaw Police Lt. Craig Graydon, a 30-year law enforcement veteran, told CNN.

“It was also more or less a political statement because the city of Morton Grove, Illinois, passed a city ordinance banning handguns from their city limits.”

As for would-be criminals looking for an easy mark, judging by the crime statistics it seems most have bypassed the Georgia town and moved on to easier targets. Even CNN was forced to admit that Kennesaw, populated by 33,000 people, has only had “one murder in the last six years and a violent crime rate of below 2%.”

“But,” writes CNN, “it’s unclear whether that has anything to do with the gun law.”

Kennesaw’s mayor sees it differently.

“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?” asked Mayor Derek Easterling.

“It gives me the ability to protect myself as opposed to being somewhere where you weren’t allowed to have a firearm or it was frowned upon,” said Wayne Arnold, a local resident who is a fan of the law.

With the gun issue being in the spotlight of late, town officials have been getting plenty of attention from all over the world about their law.

“We get a lot of calls, conversation, and it seems to keep crime control, gun safety, things like that on the minds of many of the residents, because people are constantly talking about the gun law,” Lt. Graydon told CNN. “So that’s been somewhat of a benefit to us.”

Arnold noted the expectation of a “Wild West” environment with everyone walking around “with a firearm strapped to their side.”

“And it’s not like that,” said Arnold. “It’s strictly a home defense system type of deal. There’s no shootouts down the street.”

And a lot less crime than your average American city.

    Some years back I was approached by a group of people in regard to a “Town Bully” in a small country town.. many people had tried to communicate to this guy that his anti social behavior was upsetting a lot of people. He paid no attention and it even seemed to make him act up even worse. I went to his house at around 9pm one night and waited for him to put out his garbage bin. about 10 pm he came outside took hold of his bin and took it out to the footpath. I approached him with a handgun and told him to stand still. I then proceeded to tell him that his behavior was unacceptable and I would like him to “pull his head in” and STOP IT. He ran from me and I cornered him in a sports grandstand I called for him to stop..he didn’t.. I aimed and shot him in the leg. He stopped immediately. I told him to take his shirt of and tie it around his leg which he did. I then told him that if he told the police who had done this to him I would find him and shoot him again. Long story short it CURED him of being a bully, he never acted up again. Moral of the story is this. Guns work. Oh and by the way when you shoot people they bleed a lot. All that is needed for evil to prosper is that good men do nothing. DO SOMETHING and stop fucking whining about EVERYTHING

      The community keeps the community clean and functioning as it should, when you depend on others to do that which you are responsible for then all goes in the crapper. I know a guy real well that once used a shovel pressed into a man’s chest that achieved the same results you did, and a mountain top and a long fall seemed to work well for another that was reluctant to understand.
