Do you feel Jacksonville is becoming more dangerous?

I did a quick count of what the cause of the murders were in this article. I found that a gun was used in 66% of these murders. In most cases, except for the police shootings and two home invasions, people used a gun to kill another person not to mention seriously injure others, and devastate a family. We know that more gun do NOT reduce crime, deaths or make us safer. The fact is that here in America there are more guns and more gun deaths per capita than any other nation in the world. (see web site below)

Is this really what we want as a civilized society? Do we want to allow society to be overflowing with guns? Which right is more important ? The right to own a gun or the right to LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I say it is time to make a choice. We cannot have both.

Jacksonville is one of the deadliest on the roads. We are so distracted and anxiously hurried in this "big" town of ours that folks are getting killed or seriously injured everyday in traffic accidents! I have seen some of the worst care accidents in the past few weeks than I have ever seen in my 27 years living here; all in my three mile commute to work. Attorneys must be having a field day!

Hard to say.

Looked through these 50 homicides. A few were justified, homeowner shooting a burglar, police officer shooting a suspect, person defending themselves. Most of the rest were the result of arguments between individuals that knew each other.

I live at the beach. Lots of racists live at the beach, because there are so few other types of people at the beach. We have lots of wealthy people here now as visitors. Many speak Portuguese. You should see the looks those people get, like they come here specifically to increase the murder rate in Duval County.
