I thought that Kennesaw, GA, was a kinda small town, in the state of Georgia, USA.

Now, we got this quote;

"Kennesaw State University has 23,000 students"

WTF is that all about?

Yes, hence why it is one of the most overused and misunderstood gun arguments ever posted on this forum. Maybe when the law was passed there was a decrease in crime but that was a long time ago. Kennesaw Georgia has 29,783 thousand residents and KSU has 23,103 college students. A large portion of the city aren't even allowed to keep a gun at "home."

Areall of those students living on campus...if not, then they either live at home in Kennesaw, or commute, or long distance learn...

Taking that into account, there may be only 5000-6000 on campus students at any given time if freshmen are compelled to do so, which would lessen the validity of you numbers and your argument significantly.

If they CAN (the freshies, that is) live off campus, then your numbers are further diminished...you might want to recheck them for accuracy.

The Racist Roots of Gun Control
[link to www.firearmsandliberty.com]
The historical record provides compelling evidence that racism underlies gun control laws -- and not in any subtle way. Throughout much of American history, gun control was openly stated as a method for keeping blacks and Hispanics "in their place," and to quiet the racial fears of whites. This paper is intended to provide a brief summary of this unholy alliance of gun control and racism, and to suggest that gun control laws should be regarded as "suspect ideas," analogous to the "suspect classifications" theory of discrimination already part of the American legal system.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one."

For those of you who don't live here, I will reiterate for you: The law regarding having to own your handgun if you are a homeowner isn't really a law. It is one of those weird laws that you only really know about because of how crazy it is.

That said, in Georgia a LOT of people have firearms here. Coming from Chicago, I was shocked by the amount of guns everyone owns. Now I'm used to it.

Also, you CAN carry your firearm on you here, wherever you go. You just need a permit to carry. There are a few exceptions, like schools, government buildings, and places that notify you before entering that you can't have firearms.


Otherwise, you can carry your pistol, holstered on your side, anywhere.

ATLANTA - While Election Day is still months away, people from around the country have already cast a "Yes" vote for parks. After a heated, six-week contest, Pratt Park in Prattville, Ala., was elected "America's Favorite Park," garnering more than 28 million votes. In addition to winning top honors in the 2012 America Is Your Park campaign, the Alabama favorite received a $100,000 recreation grant from the Coca‑Cola Live Positively initiative to help enhance its activity areas.

Second- and third-place winners -- Krull Park in Olcott, N.Y., and Curry Hammock State Park in Marathon, Fla. -- received $50,000 and $25,000 recreation grants, respectively. Additionally, Swift-Cantrell Park in Kennesaw, Ga., was chosen, at random, to receive a $15,000 grant.1 Activity grants totaling $80,000 were also awarded to select parks across the country.

The anti-Second Amendment crowd is on the warpath again. PBS’ Bill Moyers, who served as White House Press Secretary in the Lyndon Johnson administration from 1965 to 1967, called the NRA “the enabler of death.” It seems to me that James Holmes is the Enabler of Death. 65 million other gun owners in the United States didn’t kill anybody last Thursday evening.
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.”[1]

The horrifically tragic Newtown, CT elementary school shooting has brought forth a barrage of 'ban the guns' emotional responses from the media and politicos. CNN's Piers Morgan let loose with "How many more kids have to die, before you guys say, 'we want less guns, not more", here.

In America the 2nd Amendment is considered a sacred constitutional right because the right to defend yourself and your family against deadly force is an absolute natural right. Folks aren't dying in America because of our gun rights. They are dying because gun rights have been substantially weakened in many states and unarmed folks have no defense against armed lunatics on the loose. Banning firearms will never result in less armed lunatics but it will definitely result the ability of law abiding citizens to defend themselves when confronted with deadly force.

Let's talk about Kennesaw, GA because the media was stroking out over Kennesaw passing a law in 1982 requiring that at least one member of every household be armed and firearms proficient. Before 1982, Kennesaw had experienced soaring crime rates so it passed a law with the goal of crime reduction. The crime rate plummeted. While the media castigated Kennesaw and dubbed it 'Guntown USA' and predicted that Kennesaw would become a Wild West styled shootout town full of gun violence, the truth is much different. The crime rate plummeted and at one point in 2007, Kennesaw was deemed a murder free town for 25 years.
