    A good start. I'd say that over the next 5 years you'll see the crime rate for muggings, car jackings, house break ins etc go way down.

    * Florida adopted a right-to-carry law in 1987. Between 1987 and 1996, these changes occurred:

    homicide rate ................. Florida -36% ....United States -0.4%
    firearm homicide rate ...... Florida -37% .... United States +15%
    handgun homicide rate ..... Florida -41% ....United States +24%

    Imagine that. Criminals are afraid of people who have guns.

    I never had too strong an opinion on gun control before, but I think this is a good thing.
