Florida's violent crime rate per 100,000:

1990 1220.9
1995 1061.6

In what branch of mathematics does a 15% drop equal a rise?

Duh, not like a 15% drop in state government reported violent crime figures is evidence or anything. Maybe it's risen since, but they don't give those figures so I can't tell; either way it dropped after the concealed carry law was passed.
