from www.boortz.com: Just look at Kennesaw, Georgia. When this community passed its ordinance requiring guns in every home the left sneered and made jokes. While the liberals were making their jokes the crime rate plummeted in Kennesaw. Burglaries went from 54 in 1981 (the year before the gun ordinance) to 36 in 1999. This is even more remarkable when you consider that Kennesaw's population has exploded from 5,242 to more than 19,000 in that period of time. And violent crime is practically nonexistent in residential areas. The crime rate in Kennesaw is about four times LOWER than state and national averages! To the best of my knowledge, since Kennesaw passed its gun ownership law in 1981 there has only been one homicide, and that was a shooting that occurred in a motel involving transients. The bottom line is that criminals will avoid areas where citizens own and carry guns. They don't want to risk getting shot while committing their crimes. They'll choose areas that are safer for them--areas where few people own guns and are less likely to fight back.
