Trayvon Martin and America's gun laws.

Apr 16, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.newyorker.com

Every American can be his own policeman; the country has nearly as many guns as it has people.

Just after seven-thirty on the morning of February 27th, a seventeen-year-old boy named T. J. Lane walked into the cafeteria at Chardon High School, about thirty miles outside Cleveland. It was a Monday, and the cafeteria was filled with kids, some eating breakfast, some waiting for buses to drive them to programs at other schools, some packing up for gym class. Lane sat down at an empty table, reached into a bag, and pulled out a .22-calibre pistol. He stood up, raised the gun, and fired. He said not a word.

If we didn't have guns, it would be open season on whites by the blacks. It's the only thing that keeps them in check.

Are you going to go out and take them Pat?

I didn't think so.

I don't know who would.

Of course you would express this kind of racist sentiment; only an immoral right-wing tea-bagging bigot would find pleasure in a child being murdered for walking to get candy and a soda. But you are just a bitter angry fool that is looking to try and offend; but that stupidity doesn’t work here, because that is exactly what I expect for people like you, and besides, Zimmerman is in jail where he belongs for murdering that child, and that’s all we wanted… and thanks to the parents, their lawyers, Al Sharpton and the millions of protesters, that’s what we got.

I agree gun laws should be strengthened after this incident. Trayvon Martin tired to murder Zimmerman. We should all be required to carry a gun.

I used to live in that city in georgia where it was the law that every home have a gun. We did not have these sorts of incidents, come to think of it we just did not have much crime at all.

Exactly!! Where is the justice for poor Daniel?
His story will go the same way as poor Christopher and Channon, swept under the rug because no one can profit from it.

A mandate to own a gun is a good idea. However, it is probably a good idea to keep guns away from savages.

Gun laws are enacted by guilt-ridden white liberals to keep the ghetto dwelling thugs from getting their heads blown off by law abiding citzens with less frequency. That is the only reason the white liberal elitists want to restrict gun ownership.

if one of those other students had a gun, this arse may not have had a chance to shoot as many as he did.
