Face it, a seventeen year old walking at seven in the evening with a packet of skittles and an iced tea should NOT be followed by a wannabe cop with a gun.
Nobody deserves that, even you.
Face it, you're a lying sack of shit ignoramus and GZ was found not guilty. Now back to working the parking lots of rap concerts.

Not that time no. The cop got lucky, unlike his wife who was getting beat up by him at home, probably when he was drunk on another occasion, or occasions. Of course she backed off on her claims, most of the women who file charges do because they are afraid of what will happen to them. Not that it does any good. I'm sure Zimmerman beat her up anyway.
Love that K-Mart crystal ball you're using. You seem to be "sure' of a lot of things you have no evidence of. How about a more practical explanation? Zim and his GF weren't getting along and probably argued a lot. She filed a restraining order against him out of spite. After all, if she got "beat up" then why didn't she ever call the police? Why did she never go to a hospital? Why did she not seek any kind of help?

Much like the Martin case, you guys on the left create these wild made-up stories that have so many holes it's hard to decide which one to plug first.

He shouldn't have been chasing a kid with a gun. The fact that the kid could fight better than his wife, when he chose to start beating up on her was the only reason he didn't beat him to death. He just couldn't accept the fact that he couldn't beat up a kid and so he shot him. Typical psycho.
He chased Martin for about ten seconds. Martin easily outran him. Then Zimmerman spent the next several minutes talking to the police dispatcher--more than enough time for Martin to crawl home if he wanted. But Martin didn't do that. Martin waited for Zimmerman in the dark instead of going back to the place he was staying at. It's clear that Martin planned a retaliation attack. When he launched his attack, Zimmerman fought back. The only reason he used his gun is because Martin discovered it on him while he was beating the hell out of Zimmerman. Zimmerman had no choice but to shoot Martin. It was either that, or Martin taking his gun and shooting him. Zimmerman made the right decision.

Right, he shot himself and stuck the gun in Zimmerman's hand.
Anyhings possible. Years ago a African from South Bend died from 22 stab wounds in his back and the cause of death was ruled a suicide and no one disagreed.

Who cares what my credibility is with you? An ignorant racist, black hater. I showed you the proof you demanded and you didn't like it. Of course it was never offered in court as evidence. His attorneys managed to squelch it because it wasn't the original tape.
Well using the original would avoid situations like the NBC tape that was altered. At least what was shown at the trial was EVIDENCE and FACTS which when presented proved a NOT GUILTY verdict. That's all that counts. I like 45 cal handguns for self defense. The leave bigger holes!

... that cheap handgun he got at a gun show because someone like you with no morals was all to happy to sell him the gun and the NRA insists you have the 'right' to sell to complete strangers.
The above post easily wins the idiot of the year award. He spews about selling to "strangers" as though every gun dealer should only sell firearms to his next door neighbor hahaha. I guess the guys working in Cabelas should walk around town shaking hands and getting to know EVERYONE so they can sell firearms without "risking" offending our stupid liberal brethren hahaha.

Quotes without reputable links are NOT EVIDENCE.

Besides, those charges were reduced, and they do not reflect what really happened in the bar when Zimmerman got between his friend and an ATF undercover agent.

You can't dispute the Evidence, boy.

And that Evidence proves that George Zimmerman is a man who is not afraid to back his friends in a fight.

And that Evidence also proves that you post so often you barely got time to suck a pr!ck.

Fantasize much?
Is that why they call him barefool?

<quoted text>A cheap handgun he bought from another criminal who likely stole it from a legal gun dealer. Gun dealers have to have bars on their doors to keep thugs from breaking in. Sometimes trucks and tow chains will defeat that security.
Most gun owners I know will not sell a weapon to a person who does not have CWP, regardless of a law allowing a non felon to carry a handgun in their glove box or home.
Only douchebags and morons will sell to anyone.
Ole bare back and animals like him sell more guns to criminals in one day than all guns sold at gun shows in a year

These punks are anti gun only because they don't want their victims armed or they may end up like ashtray

However, in the case of the biker swarm. I doubt a handgun would have been of much use. It also could have led to the death or injury of bystanders because a novice would not have checked his background before firing. NY'S laws have change and I am not sure if the castle doctrine applies to an automobile. When I lived in NY , there was no castle doctrine. You had to retreat even if you were in your own home and had the option of retreating.
A pistol would have stopped the bikers in their tracks

And even a novice can learn to shoot safely

After the third or fourth biker was shot in the head even the dumbest of these criminals would have backed off

Anybody who takes a course for CCW is trained to look "downrange" before firing a gun.

The point I make about that situation unlikely to happen in my state is not because the driver would have gunned down the attackers, but because the criminals would have to suspect that he had a firearm. They would have to consider that the driver could very well be armed and launching such an attack could easily get themselves killed.

It reminds me of a debate I was having with another blogger when the legislatures introduced the CCW law. He asked why I wanted it to pass? I explained that besides the obvious, I worry about my mother. She never drove a car in her life and walks everywhere she can. She loves her walks to the church, the store, grocery shopping and the neighbors. The neighborhood isn't what it used to be. He then replied asking that if the law passed, would my elderly mother carry a firearm? To that I replied, no she wouldn't, but the criminal doesn't know that.

Lawbreakers like certainty--or at least as much certainty as they can have before committing a crime. When you have an armed society, you bring uncertainty to the criminals. In my state, we have something like 400,000 CCW holders and the classes are still full--some with waiting lists.

You are correct except for the fact that when seated in a SUV and a punk walks up to your window center mass would mean shooting thru your car door.....

But when a animal has his face a inch from your window a head shot is very easy to make.......

And then you only need to buy a new window.....

Killing a animal and then paying to fix the car door and window regulator takes all the fun out of shooting these wild animals.....

100 percent correct

If in Zims neighborhood their were big signs saying that security carries guns when Zim asked ashtray where he was going ashtray out of fear would not have started the confrontation

Just the thought that Zim may have been armed would have saved the punks life for another day and another good man would have shot him

You don't have to worry about your mother, she is ugly and fat, and gives it away anyway... one would only have to be patient... clearly: she is your mother.

And now that she gets her welfare put straight into the bank, she isn't going to be carrying cash.

Two in the chest one in the head does it every time. Its called the Mozambique Drill. The 9mm is a puny cartridge. Self defense requires the best of the best.

Once again ole bare back proves he was beaten to a pulp..........

Every time he is proven a moron or liar he is forced to revert to his rants

They will either contain his gay sex fantasies or he will pretend that he knows who a posters family is yet he can't even tell us their real name

Common thing for animals to do........

They don't realize how stupid it makes them look.......

While no expert, I say a 9mm with hollow points is all you really need unless you are taking on a gang or something. I always worry about what the bullet will do once it goes through my subject. The less kickback, the more accuracy. As we were taught, shooting at pieces of cardboard and shooting at real people that are moving or shooting back at you are two different things. I hope I never find out, but it's always good information to have.
