ABSTRACT
The article describes everyday life in the town of Kennesaw, Georgia, a locale designated by some as Gun Town. It was described as a place where routine disagreements would be settled in Wild West shootouts. Because of industrial growth, the town was transformed from a former bedroom community into a hub of economic activity. Crime is not a problem anymore in the town because its per-capita crime rate has remained essentially static since 1983. The proposed gun law of President Bill Clinton might have a detrimental effect on the peace and order of the town. People do not think that gun control will work to stop crimes.
