M1917 Army Field Manual
The Remington Model 8 is a John Browning design and was licensed to Remington in the U.S. and licensed to FN in Europe as the Browning 1900. It was marketed as a powerful semi-auto rifle in its .35 Remington chambering and sold to sportsman as a dangerous game rifle and to police for much the same reason. The Remington Model 8 in this caliber was one of the rifles chosen by the officers that ambushed and killed Bonnie and Clyde. Ammunition in this caliber is still manufactured and available, including Hornady’s LEVERevolution. Many hunters consider this rifle to still be a great woods rifle.

- The chart above shows crime rates in Kennesaw Georgia compared to similar sized cities in the region. Kennesaw GA officials attribute a drop in crime in the city over the past two decades to a law that requires residents to have a gun in the house.
- In 1982, the Kennesaw City Council unanimously passed a law requiring heads of households to own at least one firearm with ammunition.
- The ordinance states the gun law is needed to "protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants." If I were a criminal I would certainly think twice about breaking into a house in Kennesaw when you know there's a gun waiting on you inside!
