    GEUDA SPRINGS, Kan. — Residents of this tiny south-central Kansas community have passed an ordinance requiring most households to have guns and ammunition.

    3 murders in 15 years sounds normal (NOT exceptional) for a town for 5,000 - 13,000.

    If you isolate the community, sure, but bear in mind that Kennesaw is a suburb community of the Atlanta metro area (4.5 mil.) where the murder and crime rate is much higher. So compared to Kennesaw’s immediate neighbors, they are relatively very successful.
