Town passes ordinance requiring firearms.

http://www.lubbockonline.com/stories/112403/nat_112403032.shtml

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

Noncomplying residents would be fined $10 under the ordinance, passed 3-2 earlier this month by City Council members who thought it would help protect the town of 210 people. Those who suffer from physical or mental disabilities, paupers and people who conscientiously oppose firearms would be exempt....

What happens if you don't pass the background check and can't get a handgun? Are you going to be fined for that?

The town of Virgin, Utah passed an ordinance that all homeowners must have a gun and ammunition in the house.

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.

Wouldn't it make more sense to require every home to require every household to own a pitbull. This would be a much greater crime deterant.
