    Lot of hoopla over nothing. Kennesaw's gun law has more carve-outs than a poorly carved Thanksgiving turkey.

    Since I'm still fairly new to GA, I'll throw this out there. How much of a crime ridden, third world sh*thole was Kennesaw before that law took effect in 1982?

    It never was, in my memory. I lived in that area from '65 to '77 and still visited until I moved to there from '91-'04.

    So yes prior to the gun law Kennesaw was a third world crime ridden disgrace. The law is not and was not intended to be enforced. Rumor has it that roughly 60% of the residents at the time did purchase a firearm. Again this is a rumor that I heard from someone who heard it from someone else.

    The caveat with that is when the population is so small, small changes make large differences in rates. A crime rate of 0.04332 involves only 227 people/crimes. Just 23 fewer people/crimes, and they'd be at the national average.

    I know that when I was in HS, I worked at the Cracker Barrel in Kennesaw. I also know of two murders that happened next door at the sleaze motel and two employees that were robbed in the CB parking lot while I was employed there (about a year if I recall).

    I never knew that the difference between Paradise and a 'third world crime ridden disgrace' was a mere 8%. Especially when the crime rate in the USA for 6,000 per 100k pop in 1980 (as opposed to Kennesaw's 3,999).

    Would that make the entire United States a "third world crime ridden disgrace"?

    Cracker Barrel and the sleaze motel are in unincorporated Cobb County, not inside Kennesaw city limits.
