Culture Context For Ybor Shooting

It was a Halloween celebration along Ybor City’s 7th Avenue. It was 3 a.m. Two people were shot and killed. The real underlying cause: the culture, not the venue.

Why go to a late-hour Halloween celebration with a gun? Why let your 14-year-old be anywhere other than asleep in his bedroom in the middle of the night? Ybor is, in effect, another victim of a dysfunctional societal culture that is gun-and-gang enamored.
