Great response to Brady's PR campaign in Florida
Patrick Semmens has come up with a great response to Brady's PR campaign, where they are trying to scare tourists away from Florida by claiming that its liberalized self-defense rules make things dangerous.
Patrick's response: he's created leaflets warning Washington DC tourists of how dangerous DC's gun laws have made the place. He says he may upgrade them. I'd suggest a quick reference to DC's murder, rape, and robbery rates, compared to some other jurisdiction (they're probably pretty bad even with regard to NY City, but it might be esp. fitting to compare them to those of the state of Florida).
How about an exhortation to stay across the river in Arlington, where concealed carry is allowed and the murder rate is a few orders of magnitude lower?

Unforunately, DC's biggest thieves can rob you from thousands of miles away. Staying away from the disctrict won't help.
