Another reason for concealed carry. If just one of those sheep had been armed this would not have even been a story. That asswipe would have been dead, his sorry house demolished and everyone could meet for milkshakes.

Instead the only one armed was this nut, and all were at his mercy. Pathetic.

Zimmerman only likes "doing it" when it is a teenager with a packet of skittles and an iced tea.

If I were a gun nut, I'd say this was reason to outlaw guns and legalize tackling...:)

'When tackling's outlawed, only outlaws (and football players) will tackle!'

Seriously, kudos to the brave guys who took down this thug. Very ballsy.

Five minutes later he'll be announced by Fox News as one of the tacklers and be awarded the Presidential Medial of Honor, even though he wasn't in PA at the time...:)

Yes, that was truly a pathetic post. ONLY a gun nut could see a gunman murdering people and then being taken down by three UNarmed men, and announce that concealed carry was the solution.

I mean, what do you SAY to people this stupid? Seriously, I don't even know. Just incredible.

He also apparently shows up at accident scenes to claim 'hero' status after the fact..

I've heard of the Congressional Medal of Honor.

The Presidential Medial of Honor must be new.

Is that something the Media presidents give for outstanding illiteracy?

You never have any problem with finding something stupid to say.

Oh, look, it's the dimwitted and yet self-important troll from Florida here to set us all straight.

My apologies for the error in my earlier post, it was the Presidential Medal of FREEDOM I should have been (jokingly) referring to.

I hope this doesn't cause further hysteria..:)

Of course.

You must have been joking when you claimed Zimmerman said he was following Martin "on foot, armed.".

Just before you vanished down your hole again.

That was truly hysterical.

Shot with his own gun?

That's unconstitutional.

Just ask the NRA.

In Conservative Land an armed man has the right to
"stand his ground" against a teenager with a pack
of Skittles in his hand. Especially in Florida
where they've had so much trouble with kids and
Skittles.

Shoot the kids first and ask questions later.
Better yet, never.

How many did this loser kill before being taken down? Listen slick, as you can see, the cops are not going to protect you, and if just one person there had a weapon, this would be a non story. But you keep your tackling practice going just in case dumbass.

Interesting comment:

A prominent attorney has said that the prosecution should have argued that Martin was actually the person standing his ground. "After all, he was the one being pursued," he said. "That never was argued in any kind of way by the prosecution. The fact that he himself was standing his ground, and what he had a right to do."

I will of course make sure if I have a packet of skittles, an iced tea and I am being followed by a creepy man with a gun I will ask whether I am on conservative land or on common sense land!

Any time 3 folks are shot by a crazed gun-a-totin' amerikkan is a story.

If there had been more guns, the number may have been higher.
