In 2006, Greenleaf's town council considered passing an ordinance recommending each head of household to keep at least one gun. The ordinance drew national attention, including a mention by Tonight Show host Jay Leno and Comedy Central's news satire The Daily Show. The law is modeled on a 1982 law passed in the town of Kennesaw, Georgia. The ordinance was approved on November 14 2006.
