A recent story has hit the Internet about one Georgia town. Conservatives are celebrating their incredible policy. Liberals, on the other hand, cannot fathom how this is possible.
We’re talking about Kennesaw, GA. The town of 33,000 people boasts a shockingly-low crime rate. There was only one murder in the last six years. The crime rate? Below 2%. Even with a population that small, those numbers are incredible.
People began asking how this was possible. Is this the perfect town? Well, maybe not. But one law forces criminals to keep driving. That’s because every citizen in Kennesaw owns a gun.
From Daily Caller:
The Kennesaw, Georgia, law states that “every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm,” according to CNN, and was reportedly passed as a deterrent to crime…
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%…”
“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.
Some critics claim that such a law would turn a town into a “Wild West” environment where everyone is ready to shoot. That’s such an insulting, demeaning idea. The kind of thing an idiotic liberal would say.
First of all, the “Wild West” is a myth invented by Hollywood. There weren’t wild shootouts happening every day in the old West.
Second, liberals think gun-owning Americans are nuts, itching to kill. That’s simply not true. They are law-abiding citizens who care about their rights and families. Gun owners want to protect themselves from the many dangers of the world. Dangers, by the way, liberals have no way of stopping themselves.
It’s not a huge surprise that this town has such low crime. Criminals are by nature cowards. They look for easy targets—people that are defenseless. If they know someone is armed or ready to fight back, they will avoid them.
Now imagine a town where it’s required for citizens to own guns. Yeah, criminals will avoid that place like the plague.
It’s why most mass shootings take place in gun-free zones. Criminals know the people are defenseless. It’s why Chicago—with such strict gun laws—has so much crime and gun violence. Criminals are the only ones packing heat, so they prey on citizens like sheep.
But a town that requires gun ownership enjoys low crime. In a word: duh.
