In March 1982, 25 years ago, the small town of Kennesaw – responding to a handgun ban in Morton Grove, Ill.– unanimously passed an ordinance requiring each head of household to own and maintain a gun. Since then, despite dire predictions of “Wild West” showdowns and increased violence and accidents, not a single resident has been involved in a fatal shooting – as a victim, attacker or defender.

My guess is that would pretty much be 25 consecutive years from 1982 to 2007 - which is when this story was published. However, as we all know by now - the story was in error. Starting in 1999 and ending in 2004 - Kennesaw had 4, not zero.

On a side note, there is 44 registered sex offenders living in Kennesaw - a 750 to 1 ratio. Yikes!!!

There is 44,560 square feet in one acre of land. A "typical" city block (they can be many different sizes), when calculated by an engineer beginning to work on a new development, is 100,000 square feet. Thus, as a starting point, You could fit .446 city blocks on one acre of land (44,560 / 100,00. Looking at the same question from the other way, it would take 2.24 acres of land for one city block (100,000 / 44,560).

Maybe if you hadn't run away years ago, you would know leftists call THEMSELVES Liberals. "

Maybe if you hadn't dropped out of kindergarten you'd have learned the meaning of the word "liberal" and known that there is no "right" or "left" to it. Have you figured out that members of the Republican party claim to be democratic or does that fuddle your mind trying to understand the difference between Republican and Democrat?

Dr-Sniper wrote, "<quoted text>I just saw a bumper sticker a few days ago that said Liberal and proud of it! "

I'll bet there's a bumper sticker that says there are thousands of WMD's in Irak too.

Dr-Sniper wrote, "<quoted text>You really should worry about your own country, but that's not going to happen."

This subject is about cowards needing guns, and that applies to any country .... yours and mine. If you are so concerned about my opinion of my own country then perhaps you ought to look at the Sweden threads and see that I am equally critical there as I am here.
Look, I know what liberal means, and I know what progressive means. Yet here, they are accepted as terms referring to the left. If you don't like it, start a petition dip shit. Oh wait, this isn't your country. Never mind.

Convenient. No one expected you to prove your BS anyway.

There is no standard size for a city block, but its usually a little over 2 acres. As I said, 1 acre is a lot closer to 2 acres than 25000 acres is.

You didn't say 1 - you said, "less than 1 acre in a city block."

Again, prove the murders occurred inside the city limits.

It's pathetic that you must rehash points that have already been addressed. I guess you need to detract from you being wrong about 25000 acres in A square city block IN Milwaukee, and again being wrong that Deny never mentioned culture in his post. And still not proving the shootings you claim happened in the city of Kennesaw actually took place inside the city limits that are the subject of the gun ordinance.
It must suck to be you.

So what? Does everyone with a Milwaukee address live within the city limits of Milwaukee? No. If they live outside the city limits of Milwaukee, do they have to obey city ordinances? No.
Why would it be any different for Kennesaw?
You play dumb a little too well.
