There is a city in Cobb County, GA called Kennesaw – 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.’
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 populous counties in Georgia. In fact,
from 1982 through 2009, Kennesaw had been nearly murder free with one
murder occurring in 2007.
There were three murders in 2010 committed by the same man in what is
described as a “school safety zone,” an area extending 1,000 feet from
any school, including adult colleges and technical schools. This means
that even though Kennesaw has the most liberal gun laws in the United
States, employees at the facility where the murders were committed could
not have a gun on the premises.
Statically, it has been shown that - nationwide - as legal gun ownership by law-abiding citizens increases, violent crime decreases. Yet the left (including the socialist-dominated United Nations) constantly argues for greater restrictions on private firearms ownership.
Contact your Senators and demand that they OPPOSE the UN's Arms Trade Treaty. It's not good for American citizens, and it's not good for the USA. In WWII, the Japanese decided against a land battle within the USA because - according to Isoroku Yamamoto, Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy - "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." It is our ability, as a nation, to defend our country, our culture, our sovereignty and our Constitution, particularly at the individual level, that keeps us free from land invasions (other than via our southern border, anyway. Mexico has been invading us for decades!).
