If only there were a test case to show whether gun ownership increased or decreased gun violence… oh wait, there is!
Welcome to Kennesaw, Georgia. Population 33,000. They are an interesting case because, in 1982 they passed an unusual law.
“every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm”
On “Fox & Friends” on Saturday, Easterling noted that Kennesaw has had one murder in the last six years and a violent crime rate below two percent.
“It is something for a potential criminal to think about,” Easterling said.
Violent crime below two percent?
What do you think of that statistic, Ms. Stone?
Yes, Emma, we agree.
It gets better. While everyone bickers about how the Federal government has to ‘do something’… this guy has a far more typically American approach. (Well, at least in the historical sense of an American Approach USED to be.)
“When citizens are engaged, when the community is engaged as a whole and people accept responsibility and are held accountable for their actions, I think that’s what makes the biggest difference,” Easterling said.
He said that’s why he would like to see gun policies established at the local level, as opposed to the national.
“Give it back to the people. The local community needs to handle what they know how to handle.”
Imagine that. Instead of cookie-cutter one-size fits all sets of rules, this Mayor is defaulting to the principles of Federalism.
And to the absolute horror of the gun grabbing left, the sky hasn’t fallen in Kennesaw.
They keep telling us how they ‘effing’ love science so much more than the rest of us on the right.
What are they going to do with this data point?
(Besides doing their best ignore it.)
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
The men and women in law enforcement that serve and protect us are commendable, but the response time means that they don’t get there when the bullets are flying.
Are you willing to wait 20 minutes for the police to show up?
It’s an issue that needs to be discussed within our churches and addressed by our church leaders.
We need some righteous badassery in the church to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our brothers and sisters in Christ from the preventable evil in this world.
We need to Obey Jesus.
Including what he said in Luke 22:36.
He [Jesus] said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.
