Gated communities in Wiiliamson county used to seem unnecessary to me, since the crime rate in Brentwood and Franklin is extremely low. But now I understand that not only does it keep the criminals at bay, it also keep the beggers away. I've bought enough stuff from people knocking on my door that I didn't need, or didn't receive. It also keeps the tour buses away from celebrities.
