Once again a liberal leading with emotion and clouding the issues.I live in the Tampa area. Yes, we have our share of violent crime. But i have never had the misfortune to hear a gun go off in my little section of the world and I know for a fact that 70% of the homes on my street have one or more guns in them.Normally, I have little use for the ST pete based Politifact articles. They are slanted/biased IMO as is this article I will reference. http://www.politifact.com/florida/statements/2012/mar/23/dennis-baxley/crime-rates-florida-have-dropped-stand-your-ground/It was dealing with the Travon Martin case and the attack on the stand you ground law we have. A politician claimed that that law had some effect on reducing violent crime. No, probably not. But politifact had this to say:“We found that violent crime has dropped significantly in Florida since 2005. (The law went into effect Oct. 1, 2005.) We calculated the drop in violent crime rates, to account for population growth. In 2006 and 2007, violent crime rates were up just slightly up compared with 2005. In 2008, the violent crime rate began declining. By 2010, the violent crime rate had dropped 23 percent since 2005. (See chart below.)”Yep you need to look at the whole article and see the chart.And while that law may not have had a direct effect on the reduction of violent crime it certainly did NOT increase violent crime as the statistic show a steady decrease.Care to look at Florida crime stats?http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/content/getdoc/6728cc3e-438c-40e4-8161-b72b3c31e813/FSAC-Home.aspxNope a million, two million it would be better if everyone had a permit. then everyone would have their prints on file and their guns registered just like you are all calling for. So WTF people?
