    I truly don't know.  Is there a list somewhere?  

    I don't know if Florida is the most dangerous state, but I find it to be the most boring and that's plenty enough for me to avoid going there unless I have to.  

    It's the Supreme Court, stupid!

      Tennessee tends to top many of them.

      In that particular list, Florida is ranked 8th most dangerous.

        believed it to be the District of Columbia, for more than one reason.

        But the Florida fearmongering is virtually all media-driven and it's really starting to piss me off.

        This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

          is exaggerating the amount of actual gun violence?  The media pumps up any story that will drive ratings because that is what they always do.  But facts is facts, and if there are criminal shootings that go unpunished because of a state's policies, then that is a matter of general interest.  

          I guess I'm wondering the extent to which Florida is really dangerous as opposed to, say, Texas or other states with similar gun laws.

            No. It does not. It provides a lot of hyperbole, but that's about it. And it's not based in any kind of coherent reality, so why would anyone even recommend it?

            To answer your question, I thought it was pretty clear what I was saying:

            NO IT IS NOT The Most Dangerous State in the Nation.
