We're not sure where you are from, but despite what you've heard, the USA is not the wild west. That is a hysteria brought on by main stream media, activists, and political opponents. We do have a lot of guns in circulation, owned by responsible citizen who have no intentions of harming you. We also have ghettos where gangs routinely shoot one another over turf battles. I suspect it isn't much different elsewhere.

Mosquitoes are horrible in Florida. No, it's not safe.

I've been t o Florida a ton of times with my family and have never felt unsafe. Going to Disney? Happiest place on Earth! As far as shootings, geez, can happen anywhere! You can't live your life in fear. Go and have a blast!
