Find out how many people near you have died from gun violence in 2015, where your congressional representatives stand on guns — and how much money they’ve received from the gun lobby.
So I checked Florida (719 “gun deaths”) and saw that there were four congressional districts showing high concentrations of “gun deaths.”
Florida District 24: Rep Frederica Wilson, Democrat. 70 “gun deaths” NRA Rating (F), $0 in contributions.
Florida District 20: Rep. Alcee Hastings, Democrat, 40 “gun deaths” NRA Rating (F), $0 in contributions.
Florida District 14: Rep. Kathy Castor, Democrat, 40 “gun deaths” NRA Rating (F), $0 in contributions.
Florida District 5: Rep. Corrine Brown, Democrat, 91 “gun deaths” NRA Rating (F), $0 in contributions.
Out of 27 congressional districts in Florida, those four anti-gun Democrat-controlled districts carry 241 “gun deaths” or 33.5% of the State’s total. Those four districts have a total of 2,825,214 people or barely 14.2% of Florida’s 19,893,297 residents.
So unless you believe in the mythical NRA-CIA conspiracy where Black Trucks drive by at night, tossing AK 47s and Glocks on the street so any thug can pick one up and go shoot a school full of druidesses (The nuns are on vacation) and handicapped children, maybe the violence in general might be caused by other things and not the guns, specially in the Gunshine State.
