This part is incorrect to me. Why is the crime so low? Because criminals know there are no easy victims...they know the person that is in that house has a gun and can kill them...and that is the same deterrent I use when I open carry. There is no "what if they have a gun?"
It has been proven that Kennesaw, GA has among the lowest if not the lowest crime rate of any town its size in the country. Roughly 75% lower than the national average. That is a staggering number. Why? I feel it is because crimminals do not know if the person they are messing with has a firearm, because odds are they do and they can protect themselves.
There are still bad guys there, just like everywhere, and its amazing that they aren't just shooting everyone first because "odds are" (aka they know) they have a gun. Just more evidence in my mind that, "if they know you have a gun you are target #1 and they will shoot first and ask questions later" is fear mongering bull####.
