Are you sure it's Kennesaw?

You knew someone was gonna jump up with the finger pointing.

But Timothy Noah at WSJ's Washington Wire may have jumped the gun:
There’s a sad twist to the shooting Tuesday morning at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw, Ga., where an employee injured six co-workers before turning the gun on himself. Kennesaw is one of several U.S. cities and towns that have an ordinance requiring every household to own a gun.
Here's the rub. the crime scene actually isn't in the city of  Kennesaw. Yes, it has a Kennesaw postal address, but according to a county tax records, the FedEx facility on Airport Road is part of the Town Center CID located in unincorporated Cobb.

Cobb County Police were the lead agency in responding to Tuesday's shootings, and Cobb County Police handled dealing with the media at the scene. Again, for any doubting Thomases, more indications the crime was in unincorporated Cobb County.

Meanwhile, police have identified the deceased gunman as 19-year-old Geddy Kramer of Acworth.

Acworth, like unincorporated Cobb County, is not the City of Kennesaw.
