Gun laws have helped Kennesaw

Editor, I take exception to the May 7 "Others' Opinion" column from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and published in the Courier.
I believe the unauthored column was written by a) A newcomer to the Atlanta area or b) a child under 30.
To wit: It is now 25-30 years since Kennesaw, a lovely suburb of Atlanta, passed a law ordering every household to have a gun. Immediately crime -- home invasions in particular -- dropped something like 30 percent. We never hear about Kennesaw from the gun lobby of course.
Trouble with being old is that we remember such embarrassing little bits of information, then can't remember the grandkid's birthday.
