Brady Bunch Presser Lies

The Brady Crew is pushing the idea that Florida’s castle doctrine law is killing people:

A leading Florida newspaper yesterday published an analysis of incidents of violence in Central Florida that have occurred since January 1 where the state’s new deadly force law was invoked.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that in five counties in Central Florida 13 people killed six men and wounded four others, and that all but one of those shot were unarmed. The dead include a man who shook his fist at another man in a neighborhood dispute, and the wounded include a 15-year old would be car thief shot in the back of the leg while running away.

The story can be found at deadlyforce1106jun11,0,2402838.story .

“The net effect of the new ‘Shoot First’ law in Florida is, unfortunately, precisely what we feared,” said Sarah Brady, honorary chair of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “People are dying who did not deserve to die. Meanwhile the legitimate cases of self-defense would have been viewed as legitimate self-defense without this law.

“Florida’s legislature should repeal this law. And other states thinking of passing this law should stop and look at the results in Florida,” Brady said.

One of the interesting things about the press release is that the link (which appears as is, I copied and pasted) doesn’t go any where. Yet, if you go to the actual article, it says:

It is too early to tell whether the law makes Floridians safer or puts them at greater risk. There are no statistics on the number of self-defense claims statewide before or after the law took effect Oct. 1.

But an Orlando Sentinel review of five months of court records in Orange, Osceola, Lake, Polk, Seminole and Volusia counties shows widespread differences in the way claims are investigated and prosecuted.

So, according to the article, there are no real statistics prior to when the law took effect. What is reported is the manner in which self-defense claims are prosecuted. The Brady Bunch, however, states that this piece shows that people are dying and initimates an increase in deaths. From the article, I see nothing indicating that.

They have to lie to win.
