"Senators bicker over state stand your ground laws"
"WASHINGTON (AP)— Trayvon Martin's mother told a panel of senators Tuesday that state stand your ground self-defense laws do not work and must be amended, reviving the politically charged gun control issue."
"Democrats who hold majority power in the Senate and are trying to keep it supported Sybrina Fulton's call. Republicans, led by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, said the matter should be left to the states that passed the laws."
""The states are doing quite well...without our interference," Rep. Louie Gohmert testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee."
"Said Cruz: "This is not about politicking. This is not about inflaming racial tensions. This is about the right of everyone to protect themselves and protect their families." Cruz made reference to statistics he said which show that blacks cite stand your ground laws at least as often as whites."
"But race and politics were woven into the event and in the broader public policy debate. There's little willingness in Congress to weigh in on the laws of 22 states that have some form of the policy. These laws generally cancel a person's duty to retreat in the face of a serious physical attack."
"But members of Congress are busily engaged in their re-election efforts for next year's midterms, with 35 seats at stake in the Senate, all 435 seats in the GOP-controlled House and the majorities of both chambers hanging in the balance. Gun control is a politically divisive issue, more so in the wake of mass shootings in Newtown, Conn., the Washington Navy Yard and more."
"The 2012 shooting death of Martin, 17 and unarmed, and the acquittal this year of neighborhood watch volunteer George, Zimmerman stirred racial tensions and sparked debate over stand your ground laws in Florida and at least 21 other states."
"Martin's mother told the panel that she attended the hearing so senators can "at least put a face with what has happened with this tragedy.""
""I just wanted to come here to...let you know how important it is that we amend this stand your ground because it certainly did not work in my case," Fulton said, speaking without consulting prepared remarks. "The person that shot and killed my son is walking the streets today. This law does not work.""

What a dog and pony show. The federal government cannot tell states what laws they are allowed or disallowed to make unless it violates the US Constitution. If they are going to do that, they should have states make a George Zimmerman law that says you don't have to wait to get the crap beat out of you before you use your firearm.

Grandpa said you should move if you're not happy with your neighborhood.
Tell grandpa that would only be a temporary solution. Tell grandpa that blacks are the only race in the world (with the exception of those with religious or territorial issues) that strive to move away from their very own kind. So it's only a matter of time before they find me and move in over there.

That is so true. Who in their right mind would move into a neighborhood full of those idiots?

Everyone in the USA moved here from their very own kind, you very stupid m/f c/s liar.

Of course: people may move away from you because you are a low life bigoted c/s racist turd and they notice their property disappears whenever you are around, but I know it isn't because of your race.

The pedophile is no longer running loose. His mother sent him away to his father. He was put down soon after when he attacked George Zimmerman. You should thank him.

You are a typical liberal retard. When the facts are against them they begin false accusations and lies to draw attention away from the truth. The words bigot and racist are their top of the line accusations to silence a persons opinion. It doesn't work with me. I spot them and call them out like Im doing this pervert now.

Putting aside of course the pedophile was on prescription drugs and has already been through drug rehab at least once.
And no one knows what he was on when he killed this boy.

Police record means nothing when a black animal attacks you......
Bottom line ashtray had only two injuries.......
Busted knuckles and a bullet hole
Zim had multiple injuries to his face and head
If you would have read his twitter account before it was deleted you would have seen plenty of gang activities
Lots of photos showing him flashing gang signs
His writing was filled with gang slogans
But the only thing needed to prove Zim innocent was the fact that Zim was beaten and ashtray was not.........
Zimmermman was beaten by a seventeen year old kid, who he shouldn't have been chasing, with his gun. The fact that he couldn't fight without a gun to make him big and powerful was his own doing.

And, as for Martin's using gang language, so what, if he wrote it or said it, all kids like to talk tough, and that includes white kids too. All you have to do is get around a bunch of white supremacists to see that. They all talk like you, with the racial slurs and the tough guy slang. You were the one who said hoody was gang slang. If that were true every kid in the school I work in and every other kid from grade school through college and a good big part of their teachers and school staff would be talking gang slang. In fact, most of the terms used by kids in their day to day exchanges could be called gang slang, since all kids like to use them. Saying a person speaks gang banger talk is as ignorant and idiotic as the way people used to say everything young people and, again, a big part of the adult crowd who had adapted the idioms, were talking "hippy talk". And, it was done with the same thoughtless animosity,(this I can well remember).

In fact, you say his twitter was filled with gang violence, and any I saw simply had the same commonly used language I hear all the time from the kids in the school where I work. You see it because you want to see it. It's an excuse for continuing with your racist, black hating logic, or rather illogic as is the case here.

And, you still haven't shown any proof in any of your posts where this illegal weapon he was supposed to have been about to run out and buy came from. Your own imagination for the purpose of rationalizing a mindless, violent attack by a wanna be rambo is a good guess however.

No Felony on his record and the state issued him a permit to carry a gun
He did not need a reason to carry a gun........it is his right to carry a gun.....
Ashtray matched the description of a recent rash of burglaries.......
Young black men wearing a hood over their head........
All of the evidence shows that Zim was attacked by ashtray
Ashtray had no marks from Zim grabbing or hitting him
Whitenesses said ashtray was on the top backing up Zims statement
When Zim was told their was a video you could see and hear he was relieved......
I was forced to use a gun twice.....
Until you are in that situation you will not understand....
If Zim assaulted ashtray why nor marks?????
So every kid wearing a hoody was automatically subject,(oh yes, only young blackmen), and they should be chased by some gun toting whacko, self appointed vigilante with the obvious intention of killing one of those "fu--ing coons". The fact that mr tough guy couldn't fight without his gun isn't too surprising. All talk and no no substance, like most of his ilk. If someone came after me with a gun and I got him down, I'd be compelled to to beat on him for a bit before I stopped. Better than getting shot, though , in this case, the wimp got lucky and still ended up killing an unarmed kid. I don't know what you call assault but a gun shot at point blank range sounds like one to me.

By the way, I was mugged on more than one occasion and on one of them I was knocked out and left on the street by the white gang who did it. I took karate and arnise after that and packed a piece of rebar on a leather thong after that. If one of the tough talking he men like Zimmerman had attacked me I'd have laid his head open with it.

If you listen to the original tape Zim never mentioned that ashtray was black until dispatch asked him
But we have plenty of evidence that ashtray was a racist
What evidence? Where was this evidence you speak of? On the other hand I only had to listen to the words used by Zimmerman to know he was a bigot, when it came to young black men.

It's common knowledge.
Not as common as zimmerman being a racists and of course let's not forget he started sticking his finger inside his cousin when she was six years old.

On top of his arrest record, and getting fired for his bad temper and the restraining order and of course he was on prescription pills and who know what else- he's been through drug rehab.

And since there was the assault on his father-in-law.

Can't wait when his wife gets half his stuff.

The pedophile was never charged with racism, he was charged with 2nd degree murder.
