GA: CNN Admits: U.S. Town Where Guns Are Required Has Had Only 1 Murder in 6 Years

CNN admitted in a report on March 6, 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 reports that Kennesaw, Georgia, adopted an ordinance in 1982 requiring the head of every household to “maintain a firearm.”

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.”

Look at the study proving that gun admissions fall during the NRA convention. They accidentally showed that firearms injure an average of 1/100,000 per year, at most 2.5/100,000 per year in high gun ownership states. They showed a correlation, but also that the rate of injury is tiny.

Gun violence is an extremely focal problem, even given the massive rate of gun ownership in the U.S. further, among the populations that own most of the guns, the actual rates of death and injury are miniscule. Working in a major trauma center and being an avid recreational shooter, my personal experience supports that finding.

When the bride and I were shopping for our Georgia house in 1988, we were riding
around Kennesaw, Georgia (where they require homeowners to have a gun,
although there is an escape clause if you don't really want to have a gun!)
with our real estate agent.

It was during the daylight hours when we approached a potential home to
purchase. She gave an insignificant knock, then immediately used her real
estate lockbox, unlocked the door, and strode right in. We were hesitant
to follow her since it seemed like someone inside might not have heard the
knock and might come out firing. Sure enough, the owner was a day sleeper
and all parties were completely surprised. No gun was produced.

***********************************************************************************************
Kennesaw is home to "The Best Little Warhouse in Georgia", and the owner is
a man by the name of Dent Myers. He is a rather unique character. This store
has Civil War merchandise. He strides around the store in a T-shirt, denim jeans,
a US Army web belt, and has dual 1911's, one on each hip, facing backwards, and bare feet.

Arms discourage and keep the invader in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property...
Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of them.
