I should think any community touched by a drug problem also has an illegal gun problem because the two go hand in hand.
I would've sworn there were several communities like this, but I could only come up with one. Keenesaw, GA requires all citizens to own a functioning firearm unless they are mentally/physically disabled, felons or have moral objections. They (the town) claims that this law (in effect since the mid 80s) has led to a steep drop in crime in the town overall although outside experts apparently say there is no correlation. In any case, we would expect the opposite. Criminals know there is an entire town of gun owners so it's a honey pot of illegal weapons.
