With the leftist gun grabbers pushing gun control a small Georgia town has come to light.

CSNS:

A small town in Georgia that has required “every head of household” to “maintain a firearm” since 1982 has historically been free of violent crime.

The law isn’t enforced, but the town’s mayor says it’s still a crime deterrent, CNN.com reports:

“In Kennesaw, Georgia, local law says that ‘every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm.’

“‘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 Kennesaw Mayor Derek Easterling.”

There were only a few thousand people living in Kennesaw when the law was passed in 1982, but even with a population ten times that size, violent crime is rare:

“Today, Kennesaw, a town of about 33,000 people, has had one murder in the last six years and a violent crime rate of below 2%.”

At the very minimum, this showcases that guns don’t lead to more crime and in fact lead to far less crime.A crime rate of under 2% is a pipe dream for towns and cities across America and gun ownership certainly has something to do with it.
