"On my block alone, there have been six shootings in the past year," says Miami Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones, who lives in Liberty City. "One involved an assault weapon."

Spence-Jones, her husband, and their two little boys were on their way to a Sunday church service last year when they saw a car crash into a light post near the corner of NW 55th Street and Eighth Avenue. "It had been shot up 17 times," she says. "Two young men stumbled out of the car, bleeding everywhere. They died that day." The double homicide was never reported on the news.

Ladarius Evans was no exception to that tired mainstream media rule. His story represents both sides of the violent ties between poor black neighborhoods and assault rifle crimes.

Suleiman Yousef purchased his first AR-15-style rifle in 2006, two years after the federal assault rifle ban expired.

Born on May 2, 1991, Evans grew up looking after his three younger brothers and a younger sister in Brownsville, a neighborhood adjacent to Liberty City. His mom says she tried to keep her kids out of trouble while holding down two jobs. "They had curfews and chores around the house," the 41-year-old Denny's hostess says. "I did my best to make sure they didn't get caught up in that street life."

As a boy, Evans played running back for the Overtown Rattlers Optimist Club and made the honor roll at Horace Mann Middle School. But during his senior year at Miami Edison High, he began to drift. On January 26, 2009, he was arrested for stealing a car and later served 30 days in jail. That July, he was convicted of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Four months later, a felony grand theft bust followed. He pleaded guilty and served a 60-day stint.

Then, on December 17, 2010, Evans and three friends were driving around the parking lot of the Falls shopping center in Palmetto Bay when Miami-Dade police officers approached. Evans tried to run away, and later admitted he "got nervous and hid his firearm in a big condom box in the back seat," according to a police report. Officers recovered a silver-and-black revolver and charged him with illegally carrying a concealed firearm. Prosecutors didn't pursue the charges.

In early 2011, his mom convinced him to move with her out of Brownsville and into a three-bedroom house in a quiet residential area of Miami Gardens. The change of scenery helped.

"In Liberty City, there was just too much going on," she says. "There was a shooting every day."

The night he was shot, Evans had walked to the bus stop to wait for his girlfriend, who was on her way home from work. His assailant caught him completely by surprise.

Miraculously, Evans survived. The bullets didn't hit an artery. After four days, he was released from Jackson. While he was recuperating, he made a startling revelation. Hours before he was shot, his assailant confronted him outside a nearby convenience store and flashed the AK-47. Evans also told his mom that his brother Keonte had an ongoing fight with the shooter's friends.

She relayed the information to Miami Gardens Det. Joseph Zellner, but police couldn't track down Evans's attacker without his name. The break came November 4, 2011, when Evans read a front-page story in the Miami Times about a 20-year-old who had been charged in a shooting at Bunche Park. Evans recognized the shooter. When he met with Zellner, he held up a copy and said, "This is the guy who shot me."

In addition to the four attempted murder charges for the Bunche Park shooting, Tyrone Vincent Bivins was also charged with the attempted murder of Evans. It's not clear where Bivins got his rifle, but because he is a convicted felon, he couldn't have purchased it legally.

Like thousands of other criminals, he more than likely circumvented Florida's lax gun laws. Many use straw buyers. "They have their girlfriends who don't have criminal records going to the gun shows and pawn shops," Spence-Jones says.

A veteran Miami homicide detective, who asked not to be identified because he's not authorized to comment on the story, confirmed Spence-Jones's claim.

"Any young lady who is at least 18 can walk into a gun show and buy whatever AR-15 or AK-47 her boyfriend wants," he says. "Criminals are also getting rifles by committing burglaries. That is the MO for a lot of the gangs in the city."

Last November, the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics issued a report declaring that 1.4 million firearms were stolen in burglaries between 2005 and 2010. At least 80 percent of those weapons have not been recovered.

While Bivins sat in county lockup, Evans recovered from his leg wounds. But he couldn't escape his fate.

On November 12, seven months after his 21st birthday, Evans, his 18-year-old brother Quavon, and their 18-year-old friend Torrey Amica were driving on NW 43rd Street near 11th Avenue just before midnight. A gray sedan pulled up next to them, and without warning, someone inside sprayed all three young men with a high-powered rifle.

Quavon and Torrey were transported to Jackson, but they did not sustain any life-threatening injuries. Evans was pronounced dead at the scene.

"To know that someone will pull a gun and shoot somebody just for looking at them funny is horrible," his mom says. "Even though we were around it every day, I never thought gun violence would destroy my family."

Please try to refrain from using opinion and emotion when writing a piece about something that is so near and dear to hearts of many. Your first paragraph alone is overly dramatic and inacurate. You cannot shoot steel targets at trail glades unless your in the 50 not 100 yard range next door that is private for law enforcement or gun clubs. The Ar15 recoil is not explosive nor is it heavy 6-8 lbin any way, this is why 18 year old 100lb women in the military can shoot its near cousin, the M16, with ease.  Being an AR15 and other firearms gunsmith myself, your section on the assembly performed by Mr. Corbato was. If you dont know just write that he assembled the varios parts into a rifle.  If your gonna quote statistics you need to really break them down. More people are killed by handguns than rifles period. Of all these murders, how many were with stolen guns?

... not a bad article, although IHMO, somewhat slanted towards the anti-gun mania sweeping the nation. This in spite of the fact that most guns used in crimes are acquired illegally, despite all of the gun laws already in place, and the statements, even by the victims mother, that she doubts new gun laws will prevent criminals from getting even high power semiautomatic weapons like the one used in the slaying of her son. So why back new laws when the ones we have aren't being enforced strenuously, and when it is obvious it won't have the intended effect? Why not enforce the laws we have and get tough on straw buyers (and sellers)? Why not follow up on the MANY denied instant checks that no one ever follows up on? And not to state the obvious but how about keeping violent felons in prison where they belong? And certainly there is no sense in disarming law abiding citizens who's only hope for defending themselves apparently is to stay armed and learn to use their weapons well.  Gun control is a purely political agenda intended to make an misinformed public think politicians give a damn when in fact they don't, or they would deal with the real issues that cause the violence they say they want to end. Otherwise, how do you explain the fact that while gun ownership has climbed in unprecedented numbers in the last few years, the violent crime rate has declined just as dramatically? Don't beleive the hype.

Assault Rifles were banned in 1986.  You have to have a Class III to buy or possess an assault rifle, idiot.

Here's a quick fix. Instead of all the background checks and registries, how about a quick test of reading and math. To be fair, baseline the test at about the GED level. Illiterates have no business with dangerous weapons of any kind so this can be extended to anything with a sharp edge or pointy end on it.

This proposal would, overnight, eliminate about 90% of the thugs with guns obtained either through a homeboy not yet convicted of a felony or through a girlfriend willing to do anything for a guy who will overlook her morbid obesity.

Imagine. Liberty City would soon resemble Boca Raton. North Miami Beach would become Coral Gables. Overtown would transmogrify into Weston.

Why is it we continue to ignore the 800lb gorilla in the room when discussing crime? No matter what else we do, we must NOT allow obvious FACTS or TRUTH to enter our discussion.

And while we are whining about what inanimate tools can do in the wrong hands, let's take a look at something MUCH more dangerous to the average law-abiding citizen: automobiles. Automobiles kill FAR more people and infinitely more innocent people than do guns in the wrong hands. And, like guns, they are 100% inert and harmless machines until Stupid begins to operate them. What's the common feature then in the death and destruction? The steel used in constructing them? The corrosion resistant coatings? Or maybe, just maybe, it's Stupid himself?

None of this carnage will end until and unless we face the CAUSE. And here's a wild pet theory I've concocted - Stupid is responsible for the VAST majority of all innocent victims of gunplay, automotive injury, etc.

did any of you read the article?
There are definitely some errors in termanology but he did state early in the article that and AR-15 is not an assault rifle.
He seemed to show both sides of the story.
A lot of hate from people whom I really don't think read the story.

Oh, and by the way Francisco: The guy assembling the AR-15's was screwing the barrel into the UPPER receiver, the magazine port is in the LOWER receiver, they are two different parts. It's doubtful if he's producing ANY of the parts. A lot of small manufacturers assemble AR-15's from parts manufactured by larger companies. I don't know if the long cylindrical component on the end of the barrel is what you are referring to as the "Barrel shroud" but the only thing I know of that looks like that is a sound supressor (sometimes wrongly referred to as a "silencer.") If he is manufacturing and installing sound supressors on AR-15's he had better be registering them with the Federal Government since supressors are regulated in the same way as machine guns or other guns capable of full-auto operation. (ie: REAL assault rifles) And what the hell's with the motorcycles in the background? Is this guy running a gun shop or a motorcycle shop? Does he have the necessary licenses and permits to manufacture firearms? Couldn't you find a real gun manufacturer to interview instead of some fly-by-night operator?

While Liberals continue to attack our Constitution, illegal arms traffickers are excited about all the business that will be headed their way (just like prohibition did for organized crime and the 40 year drug war did for drug cartels).

And criminals also benefit because they will be the only ones with access to assault rifles because of their connections to the illegal arms traffickers.

And politicians love it because people will think they're heroes and elect them into office.

We've seen how great prohibition worked. We've seen how successful the 40 yr drug war has been in reducing drug use in America. But Gun Control will be different?

Isn't it funny how Americans repeat the same  mistakes over and over and over?

hlain9152

The lies start with the third sentence of the article when the so-called author talks about the "explosive recoil" of the AR-15 In the next sentence he talks about the "heavy weapon." There is almost no recoil from an AR-15 and it is far from a "heavy" weapon. The lies and exaggerations go on from there. I have to wonder if this clown even fired the rifle as he says. Probably too wimpy and metrosexual to even try.

Its funny how elemtary writers, that are clearly anti-gun, forget to put in the facts that really matter. Like how many Violent Crimes, Rapes, Burgleries, etc; are prevented every year by law-abiding gun carrying citizens. They will see it is about 800,000 - 2,500,000 depending on the study you read.

Also, where is the statistic showing the crimes that happen in Miami vs those in L.A. or Chicago, that have ths strictest gun laws in the country.

I've only gotten two things from this article, that Francisco Alavarado is a Second Rate Writer and that Mayor Tomas Regalado will not have another term!

How many more times must the ill-informed be reminded that there are three key precedents that prohibit the government from banning semiautomatic firearms?

U.S. v. Miller - Protected arms are those "in common use" that "have some reasonable relationship to the . . . efficiency of a well-regulated militia".

D.C. v. Heller - "Held:

"1. The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes[.] . . . (f) . . . United States v. Miller, 307 U. S. 174 , does not limit the right to keep and bear arms to militia purposes, but rather limits the type of weapon to which the right applies to those used by the militia, i.e., those in common use for lawful purposes. Pp. 47–54." - DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA v. HELLER (No. 07-290) 478 F. 3d 370, affirmed.

McDonald v. City of Chicago - "We therefore hold that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the Second Amendment right recognized in Heller. The judgment of the Court of Appeals is reversed, and the case is remanded for further proceedings. It is so ordered." - MCDONALD ET AL. v. CITY OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ET AL.

These are not mere inconveniences for the writer's argument, they are fatal to it.

This article is EVERYTHING thats wrong with media coverage on this issue, and so many others.

I am not going to go through and refute all fallacies,  contradictions, misiformation and outright lies, but they are glaringly obvious.

Seriously, five minutes of research would clear 90% of them up. But obviously this 'journalist' couldnt be bothered.

What a joke and what a shame. This is why 'gun control' is DOA. Because most everyone thats even seen a gun on TV can see right through this load of ignorant and incorrect claptrap.

So keep it up! You are why Floridas laws arent changing anytime soon.

Read the first page, but there are too many errors to continue. First, these are not "assuault rifles". Assault rifles are fully automatic, these weapons look like machine guns but are actually not. Also, Fl is not that gun friendly. Many states were already "stand your ground" states before Fl passed their explicit law and coined the term "stand your ground". Many states let you carry openly without a license. Fl does not, even with a permit. Hammer's statement that gun rights are a civil rights issue is hyperbolic? Many people feel that way, Mr Alvarado.

Part 2: all would not fit in one post.

Hey why dont we compare alcohol related deaths to firearms deaths? Why dont we just ban alcohol, it kills more people daily than firearms. If a drunk driver gets in his truck and hits a bus full of o say 20 kids, kills them all, what are we going to ban then? There are just to many damn points that in the article that are plain wrong. Your are doing the topic and your readers a diservice by not REPORTING facts. BTW what exactly is a "deadly firearm" i am not familiar with undeadly firearms myself DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA.

@drmarkm It's not that black and white. Any anti-gun person can say,  Look at a city like New Orleans, and then look at a city like NYC. Which state has the city with the highest murder rate, and which state has the strictest gun laws? But does that mean establishing strict gun laws will be successful in reducing gun crimes because of the disparities of murder rate between NO and NYC? NOPE!!! Not anymore than suggesting that establishing stricter gun laws don't work because of the disparities between Chicago and Broward County. C'mon now. Most of the cities and states with the highest per capita murder rates are in the South. ALOT more shootings of passion happen down here. That's not to say that stricter gun laws are gonna solve everything, because that's not a guaruntee. But to suggest more guns will reduce crime, isn't necesarily true either.

They have VERY strict laws against ownership of any "military" type of firearms. Ask the thousands of victims of the cartels how well that's working.

The old, worn-out cliche "When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns" may be a cliche but it's still absolutely true. Take the guns away from legal owners and you will see chaos. The only thing keeping the thugs, gang bangers, and drug dealers from taking over is the knowledge that they are out-gunned and out-numbered. Reverse that situation and guess what? There aren't nearly enough cops. What's the next thing? Martial Law and the military intervenes? That will pretty well end your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
