If gun-control is so useless, according to you friggen gunloons, why then is it that not a single crime is ever committed with a machine gun ever since they were outlawed in 1934 and 1986 respectively?
Conservatives and most liberals agree, with the 2nd amendment we have a wonderful legacy and tradition it's the gunloonery that is the problem.
Actually ignorance is the problem. The ownership of machine guns by private citizens is not outlawed. Of the 488,065 legally owned machine guns in the US, the NRA estimates 150,000 are owned by private citizens.

You are incorrect.
ALL the physical evidence bears witness to the fact that Martin attacked Zimmerman. In fact it was this physical evidence that led to the police releasing Zimmerman the night of the attack by Martin.
Zimmerman said it was self defense. The physical evidence supported that truth. They let him go - until Sharpton and Jackson lied about the incident on national TV. You notice that Sharpton and Jackson are eerily silent now ain't they. It is because they lied and got caught at it.
Hell, Jackson first stated that Martin was shot in the back of the head execution style.

It's very clear you side with the shooter.
I still say let the wheels of justice turn.
And I don't give a f**k what you "think". And I am NOT on the side of the shooter. I am on the side of the EVIDENCE. The evidence just so happens to be supportive of the shooter's claims, with NOTHING to back yours.

I have said MANY times on these forums that if there is indeed evidence that proves Zimmerman is guilty of a crime, I hope the prosecution finds it and puts him away for it. To date....there hasn't been. Ans just because you have a dead body, it doesn't mean the shooter is guilty of murder or even manslaughter, ESPECIALLY if the evidence supports the shooters claim of self-defense.

You just squeeze it as much as you can.
Wrong again. Martin can't "do" a damn thing....he's dead. You Trayvonites, just can't seem to admit that mistakes were made by Martin too, and his actions cost him his life. All you see is the smooth-faced 12 year old the media portrays him as, which is FAR from what he was. Sucks to be Martin.

sick lie. There is nothing great about a thug stalking and shooting a kid.
Since Zimmerman didn't "stalk" him, the lie is all yours. If anything Martin doubled back to confront Zimmerman, which ,in hindsight, wan't the smartest thing the budding young hood ever did in his life.

Hey pea-brain, why don't you enlighten us with your "know-it-all" wizardry: If gun-control is so useless, according to you friggen gunloons, why then is it that not a single crime is ever committed with a machine gun ever since they were outlawed in 1934 and 1986 respectively?
Not entirely true. There are over 28,000 in TX alone. I can walk down to my local gun store here in ND and buy a machine gun. They are tightly regulated. Not banned entirely.

So the real question is, why has no one been killed by a machine gun even though there are more registered machines guns than ever before?

The prosecution doesn't get to deal in "may", or "should", or "could have", etc. He has injuries consistent with such an attack AND eye-witnesses to the FACT. Prove it didn't happen the way he claimed. What evidence to you have to the contrary. I am open to whatever you can prove. Here is your chance. Convince me I am wrong and the eye-witnesses didn't see what they said they saw....I dare you.

As much as it sticks in your craw, the fact he was armed at the time is irrelevent because he was legal to be armed. And the fact the he was armed probably saved his life. And that "kid" was almost 6 feet tall and an athletic football player. Not some pimply-faced middle-schooler as you try to portray him.

Yes I am. Do you wish to stick to purely facts? I'll be happy to debate you on that level. But the rules apply to both sides.
So... you weren't using facts before?
