If you wanna read the “study” click on the link. Basically ever since the passing Stand Your Ground law, we are awash in murders.
“Since the 2005 SYG law, remarkably, Florida’s firearm homicide rate soared higher than California’s, even though California is a more urban state with greater inner-city gang and gun violence problems.”
California’s murder rate last year was 4.7 and it was 5.1 in 2010. Florida murder rate in 2011 was 5.2 and 5.3 in 2010. A difference of 0.5 is nothing to call home and sacrifice the fatted lamb people. In fact Florida’s murder rate has dropped 2.5 times while population climbed 2.6 times since detailed records began to be kept in 1971. Murder rates began to climb down after the passage of the Concealed Weapons Permit law and we went from double digit to single digits in 1991. In October of 2005, Stand Your Ground was passed and from 2006 to 2011, the murder rate again dropped from 6.2 to 5.2. Murders by ALL firearms went from 740 to 695. Murders by handguns went from 450 to 390.
Now, go suck on a tofu cola. We Floridians will take care of our problems on our own without californication.
