What more proof do you need that an armed society is a peaceful and law abiding society?

Yes, dear anti-gunners, it really is possible to have a city where residents are allowed (or required) to owns guns AND still have a low crime rate.

Exhibit A: Kennesaw, GA – a city that has made it mandatory for the head of a household to own a firearm, yet maintains the lowest crime rate in one of the most populace counties in Georgia.

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 when it passed a mandatory gun ownership law. “The city of Kennesaw was selected by Family Circle magazine 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.”

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.

The city’s website states that Kennesaw “has the lowest crime rate in Cobb County,” one of the most populace counties in Georgia. In fact, from 1982 through 2009, Kennesaw had been nearly murder free with one murder occurring in 2007.

  • I live in Kennesaw Georgia and most of what they say is true…I have never had a break in/burglary and don’t ever expect too. The same cannot be said for the other areas around who are plagued with break ins.

    There is no deterrent like knowing you are going to run into the point of many guns, not just one.

    The only reservations I have about guns is that there should be age limits and psychologiccal bans. In other words if you are bipolar or schizophrenic you should not be able to own a gun ever! Just like epileptics are not to drive.

    These are just my humble opinions.

    Remember guns, gold (and Silver) and a get away plan (along with a foreign passport).

      Love it when cities allow, or better yet, tell the people that crime prevention is there responsibility. As a former LE officer, police don’t come when they think you’ll be a victim, only after you are. In our county you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a house that is loaded. We don’t hear of burglaries and violent crimes in the county.

    “What more proof do you need that an armed society is a peaceful and law abiding society?”

    Something replicable. Something less anecdotal. Something comparative. Something that doesn’t assume it’s conclusions at the outset. America IS an armed society. That society is not peaceful and law abiding. There is no simplistic answer derived a priori from an ideological position.
