A Local Perspective

Kennesaw GA
Kennesaw is a suburb that is part of the larger Atlanta area. Despite being associated with the larger metropolis, it constitutes a fair sized city on its own with its nearly 30,000 residents. The city has historic significance, as it was near the site of many important events during the Civil War. As a result, there are many historic sites worth visiting within the immediate area.

Kennesaw is a city that has been growing very quickly over the last few years. Despite that, it has remained an extremely safe location, with crime rates well over 50% lower than the national averages. Firearms proponents attribute low crime rates to the somewhat unique law that requires the head of every household in the city to be in possession of a firearm.
