Kennesaw once again was in the news on May 1, 1982, when the city unanimously passed a law requiring "every head of household to maintain a firearm together with ammunition." After passage of the law, the burglary rate in Kennesaw declined and even today, the City has the lowest crime rate in Cobb County.

#2 Most of the drop in firearm-related injuries and deaths can be explained by a well-documented, nationwide drop in violent crime.
Granted, year to year crime stats, at best, show a correlation to gun ownership. Even the decade trend in violent crime doesn't necessarily prove causation. But it certainly reveals the folly in the argument that increased firearms ownership makes for a more dangerous society.
