If the media told the truth, people would probably be crying for military support on the border.
I had an aunt and uncle and 2nd cousin that lived in Ft. Lauderdale and they call kept at least 5 handguns in their homes. I think that was also part of the reason why my cousin had that antique Tommy Gun in the glass cabinet. Always had a fully loaded drum magazine with .45ACP.
All of them also had concealed carry licenses since the law went into effect there back in the late 80's.
I am former law enforcement (12 years) and don't go anywhere in the state with out a pistol of some sort on my person.
