Doug, here in Florida, we had become the murder capitol of the nation 25 years ago. Republicans finally took over the state legislature and tore down the good ole boy concealed carry permit system that had been the democrats pet for 50 years. We became a "shall issue" state and this week will have over one million active permits going. The Travyon thugs here have discovered that citizens are no longer easy pickings and that everybody commands equal respect. In other words, crime no longer pays in Florida and has dropped significantly now that 5% of the population is packin'. If one state passed a law allowing teachers to carry at school, there would be NO MORE school shootings anywhere!
