One State is Actually Working on Gun Violence

In a nutshell, instead of chasing politicians and groups the government feels are "enemies," Florida is actually trying to protect its citizens. Two main features of the Gun Violence Unit (GVU) is that there are specific ADAs assigned trained to work with the LEAs and prosecute gun violence cases in each of the state district court systems. To back up the attorneys are intelligence analysts, and support personnel. Their charge is twofold. 1. Thorough investigations into illegal shootings and maximum prosecution of gun violence acts. 2. Actively prosecute "Felon with a gun" charges to the maximum allowable extent.

This has been around for awhile, and is working well enough for a budget bump up and support.

State Attorney Suzy Lopez is expanding and restructuring the agency’s Gun Violence Unit (GVU) to better prosecute gun-related offenses and our community’s most violent offenders. The agency has expanded the number of attorneys dedicated to this highly-specialized team that exclusively prosecutes cases involving gun violence.

This expansion allows our prosecutors to work more collaboratively with law enforcement to address serial trigger pullers who victimize our community. This restructuring will bring the Gun Violence Unit to a total of five attorneys including a Chief, Deputy Chief, and three Lead Trial Attorneys who will exclusively handle gun-related crimes.

“As prosecutors, our greatest responsibilities are to the victims of crimes and protecting public safety. We must use every tool we can to fight gun violence in our community. By expanding the Gun Violence Unit, my office will dedicate significant resources towards prosecuting these brutal crimes that tear families apart and terrorize our neighborhoods. Working hand-in-hand with law enforcement from the crime scene to the courtroom, assigning specialized, highly-trained prosecutors, and standing with victims gives us the best chance of holding gun violence offenders accountable,” said State Attorney Suzy Lopez.

    What are they doing about the real problem... the gun manufacturers? And the Second Amendment? That's where we need real change. Some dude shooting you with a gun is less likely than you getting hit by lightning or winning the lotto. That's - unless of course - you're in the military. Then you're on your own.

    Actually, if you could actually read the Constitution (and understand it) that was one of the most stupid comments imaginable.

    You're not going to get wholesale changes to 2A or a repeal until the Chinese take us over. Nice try, but no friggin see-gar little lady. Why can you charge the gun manufacturers if you can't charge car companies or liquor stores? Again. Stupid. You need to take a college prep class in US government. Then maybe a Constitutional Law course. Obviously, they didn't have those in "art" "school."

    And of course, you don't give any shit at all about the victims. That's the left's stance. "The deranged gun got up, loaded itself and shot 10 people in the hands of an innocent gangster."

    I've done this a couple of times, actually given you like a dozen times people have protected themselves and their families. I can do that 10 times a year. But I guess when you're "protected" by your butties, you don't have to worry. Just be careful they don't get a Flaka and part you out.

    OD, I grew up in Miami when it was the drug, crime and murder capital of the world. I get that your paranoid someone is going to shoot you there in Pahokee or whatever backwater city you're currently living in - but I grew up with the big dawgs and never needed a gun to get thru the day. And if your lies were true? That I was hanging out with crack dealers or whatever your imagination conjured up today after forgetting your meds again? That would put me on level 10 of Badass Mountain while you're still down at ground zero waiting for Uncle Sam to give you permission to put your boots on.

    I thought you were raised in the midwest somewhere... We'll start with that lie.

    I know you feel secure in your own little view of your little world. I absolutely understand that. I don't have the luxury of seeing things through your view. You're a sheep. Obliviously wandering through the world like everyone was your friend. That's not horrible. It's stupid, for sure. But it's how you see the world. Again, why do you hate the military so much? I go back to my prior post. There are no other reasons. You're no different than your buddies from 10/7. They have the same hatred (and pretty much the same drug use) as you do. I just find it odd that you have that much hatred for something you "claim" to have no knowledge of. I pity you more than anything.

    And of course you've completely sidetracked the thread. I actually thought this was something that a STATE is doing to keep its citizens (and non) safer. The state has ZERO IMPACT on 2A. You still aren't smart enough to understand a simple thing like the federalist system you live under. The STATE cannot over-ride the US constitution. So a STATE is doing what it can. Putting bad people in prison. Making a place for the folks that are raising their families, trying to keep free from violent crime and have jobs to live. Does this affect the white population the most? No. It's those of color that are making bank on this. A lot of black and latina single moms and young kids. I guess I should have figured as much. You forget often the forest is made up of trees. So looking at the vast wilderness you forget about the trees in it.
