It doesn't sound like Kennesaw is a town for the weak and wimpy. "There's been no move to get rid of the law. Why would you?" said Robert Jones, president of the Kennesaw Historical Society. "The law is a great tourist attraction. It's the town with the Gun Law. People in Europe feel they need to be protected by the government. People in the U.S. feel they need to be protected from the government," said Jones, the owner of a .357-caliber Magnum.
Kennesaw is a place that the mythical Dirty Harry or the non-mythical Wyatt Earp (picture left) would have been proud to call home. It might have been a bit troublesome for Wyatt because he have posted ordinances that said no guns in certain parts of Dodge City. In any event the famous lawman would have been able to display his Colt 45 or other weapon of choice.This is not something just for the men, as one lady who works in a Kennesaw shop, said she lived alone and was taking no chances. "I wouldn't hesitate to use it," she said of the gun she keeps loaded with hollow-point bullets. "My little .22. It'll do whatever I want it to." Annie keep your gun!
