    While many communities are calling for tighter gun control laws, there's a town in Klamath County that requires the head of the household to own a firearm. It's now been more than 30 years since Chiloquin adopted an ordinance requiring the head of household to maintain a firearm, and ammunition. . . . . The ordinance in Chiloquin was passed the same year a similar law was passed in Kennesaw, Georgia. Kennesaw city officials claim the law has reduced crime by 89 percent.

    Society Is Crumbling Right In Front Of Our Eyes And Banning Guns Won't Help By Michael snyderDecember 17, 2012 What in the world is happening to America? I have written many articles about how society is crumbling right in front of our eyes, but now it is getting to the point where people are going to be afraid to go to school or go shopping at the mall. Just consider what has happened over the past week. Adam Lanza savagely murdered 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. 42-year-old Marcus Gurrola threatened to shoot...

    Marietta Daily Journal ^ | March 29, 2011 | Jon Gillooly
    The creation of a new department at Kennesaw State University that would house various racial, gender and environmental programs has come under fire from one longtime KSU professor who sees it as a hive for radical indoctrination. In the next month or so, KSU Interim Provost Dr. Ken Harmon will determine whether to greenlight a new department within KSU's College of Humanities and Social Sciences called The Department of Cultural and Regional Studies. That department would have seven academic programs under its banner: African and African Diaspora Studies, Gender and Women's Studies, Environmental Studies, Asian Studies, Latin American Studies, Peace...

    Hillbuzz ^ | 3/22/11 | Bridget Casey,
    A couple of weeks ago I did a story about the new provost-elect at Kennesaw State University in Marietta, Georgia. Timothy Chandler was slotted to take over the job this July but it had been discovered that he had done a paper the slanted towards Marxism and once exposed…..there was a rather large backlash from the public. Well…the people have spoken and Dr. Chandler has decided “not to take the job”. (AJC) Accusations of Marxism and being un-American proved too much for Kennesaw State University’s newly selected provost, who withdrew his acceptance of the position on Thursday. Timothy Chandler, tapped...

Raymond Devaughn Taylor, 57, is accused of taking off his clothes during a class he was teaching, according to an arrest warrant obtained by the AJC. The incident occurred on Nov. 30 between 4:35 and 4:45 p.m., the university police department states in the warrant. A student in the class reported the incident to school officials Friday, Arlethia Perry-Johnson, vice president of external affairs for the university, told the AJC.

    Atlanta Gun Rights examiner ^ | 13 January, 2010 | Ed Stone
    The scene of a mass murder yesterday afternoon is inside a "school safety zone." Few details are known about why an ex-employee of a Penske Truck Rental facility in Kennesaw entered his former place of business and shot five people, killing three. No motive is yet being discussed. Another thing that is not being discussed is the location of the murders. The Penske Truck Rental facility is located in one of Georgia's "school safety zones," an area extending 1,000 feet from any school, including adult colleges and technical schools. In this case the shooting occurred in the school safety zone...

    My Christmas rounds encompassed Morton Grove, Illinois and Kennesaw, Georgia this year, which is a little like a Cold War combatant going from Moscow to Washington, DC in the same week. Advocates of gun owners’ civil rights well remember that Morton Grove was the first municipality to ban private ownership of handguns, “back in the day.” But we also remember that after the landmark US Supreme Court decision in Heller in 2008, Morton Grove was among the first such communities to buckle and rescind the law. Significant Other and I were on Mark Walters’ radio show on 12-27-09 (downloadable from...

    Southern U.S. town proud of its mandatory gun law KENNESAW, Georgia (Reuters) - The Virginia Tech killings have set off calls for tighter U.S. gun laws but anyone wanting to know why those demands likely will make little headway should visit Kennesaw, a town where owning a gun is both popular and mandatory. The town north of Atlanta had little prominence until it passed a gun ordinance in 1982 that required all heads of a household to own a firearm and ammunition. Kennesaw's law was a response to Morton Grove, Illinois, which had passed a gun ban earlier that year...

  • Flashing white light in sky over Kennesaw Friday night

    Last night, Friday 7/13 at about 11:00 pm there was a light flashing high up in the sky. The same thing happened the previous Friday. It didn't move, but flashed a white light for a second or two, then did it again about every 14 seconds. Some of you have commented on night sky observations before, so if anyone has seen this, or has any suggestions as to what it is, I'd like to hear from you. Thanks.

    Gun Ownership Mandatory In Kennesaw, Georgia Crime Rate Plummets by Chuck Baldwin The New American magazine reminds us that March 25th marked the 16th anniversary of Kennesaw, Georgia's ordinance requiring heads of households (with certain exceptions) to keep at least one firearm in their homes. The city's population grew from around 5,000 in 1980 to 13,000 by 1996 (latest available estimate). Yet there have been only three murders: two with knives (1984 and 1987) and one with a firearm (1997). After the law went into effect in 1982, crime against persons plummeted 74 percent compared to 1981, and fell another...
  • Data on Firearms and Violence Too Weak to Settle Policy Debates

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Data on Firearms and Violence Too Weak to Settle Policy Debates; Comprehensive Research Effort Needed WASHINGTON -- The role of guns in U.S. society is a subject of intense policy debate and disagreement. However, current research and data on firearms and violent crime are too weak to support strong conclusions about the effects of various measures to prevent and control gun violence, says a new report from the National Academies' National Research Council. A comprehensive research program on firearms is needed if criminal-justice and crime-prevention policy is to have a sound basis. Some of today's most pressing...

    The largest available property bordering Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is set to become a residential subdivision, sparking the latest debate over development around the historic Civil War site. The 60 acres on which developer Weaver & Woodbery wants to build single-family houses is part of the Hays Farm in Cobb County. The property, off Ga. 120 near John Ward Road, is under contract, according to the Atlanta-based firm and a family member of the 93-year-old woman who owns the land.Park Superintendent John Cissell says he's frustrated to see developers take another piece of land that the National Park Service...

    God joins guns in local politics By BRENDEN SAGER The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Kennesaw's motto is "Freedom First," but perhaps the council should consider "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition." The Kennesaw City Council's recent decision to pass a resolution supporting government's recognition of God appears to have played well on Main Street. Several locals said they agreed with the measure. Mayor Leonard Church proposed the law on the eve of his Nov. 4 re-election, and won in a landslide. The city of about 20,000 first put itself on the national political map more than 20 years ago by passing...

    AN ALL-OUT REVOLT against gun control may be brewing among rank-and-file police officers. In my last column, "Gray Davis’ Cop-Killing Gun Law," I revealed that anti-gun zealots such as Sarah Brady and Ted Kennedy have found a new enemy: cops. No longer content to disarm ordinary citizens, gun prohibitionists now want to strip off-duty and retired police of the right to keep and bear arms. Reader reaction to my column was mixed. Virtually every correspondent favored gun rights, but many expressed disdain for the rights of police. "Maybe when their CCW [Concealed Carry Weapon] rights are stripped away they will...
