> firearm-related homicides
> firearm-related assaults

All data, statistics, or reports regarding matters pertaining to gun acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, from the year 2015, including, but not limited to, the following:
• the issuance of firearms permits and licenses.
• the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Ms. Nason -

Wanted to go ahead and touch base with you on this portion of the request : "All data, statistics, or reports regarding matters pertaining to gun acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, from the year 2015, including, but not limited to, the following:" The Sheriff's Office does not have any information regarding these matters. Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services handle all matters regarding concealed weapons permits. I believe the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives would handle the rest.

Regarding the request for incidents involving firearms, I know you will need homicides and assaults. Your request reads including but not limited to. What other types of crimes do you need? This agency does not have any report that will pull this information.

I await your response.

Thank you.

Hi,

If your agency only has a report that tracks homicides and assaults that is fine. Some other agencies have also kept track of armed robberies in the same report.

Thanks,
Vanessa

Thank you for the response. I have pulled the homicide cases, assault cases and robbery cases for 2015.

We are a very small county and don't actually have "in house" reports. I was able to run the UCR reports and find the homicide, assault and robbery cases involving firearms. Do you actually want a copy of the report or just the numbers?

Ms. Nason -

Pursuant to your public records request, please find attached the 2015 UCR
Report for Hamilton County, Florida.

In an earlier response to a question I had, you indicated you would like
reports. If that is still the case, please let me know. Some of the
reports are very extensive and cannot be emailed due to the large number of
pages.

On Monday, February 27, 2017, I provided a copy of the 2015 UCR Report
which gives the data requested.

Please advise if you are in need of a copy of the reports for the
individual cases as well.

Thank you.
