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.

My district which encompasses the democratic enclave of Detroit is rather telling… Democrats, F ratings, plays out rather plainly like your notes for Florida.
Female Democrats correlate positively with “gun violence”
You’re not wrong. My own district appears to be Colorado 5, with the 2nd highest number of “gun deaths” in the state. We have Doug Lamborn(who I personally voted for, I’m on his mailing list, and he’s done some good stuff.)
The most “gun deaths?” Denver, which is downright tiny in comparison to District 5, has more than double the rate(the top bracket, with the uncapped maximum), and the only difference between District 1 and District 5 is Diane DeGetty, the Democrat woman with an F-rating who laughed at the rape victim back in 2013.
Of the 4 “safest” districts in Minnesota, 3 have the only Republican representatives in the entire state.
Hoist on their own petard. …
In general, they should correct with the per capita amount for any comparison.
How about this modest proposal- ban guns only for Democratic voters.
Yep, THOSE numbers don’t lie…
At BEST, their article shows that voting gun control and gun rights have absolutely NOTHING to do with actual “gun crimes.”
I scrolled over both pro and anti rights districts with high crime.
This is an excellent tool the anti rights people have handed us.
