Then you never have owned a gun.<quoted text>
I still can't understand how a man with a gun would be afraid of a kid.
I didn't see the trial today.
Anyhow it's gonna be 80 degrees up where you are tomorrow. I melted a bit today.
A gun does not turn you into Rambo. It is merely a tool that can help you to defend yourself, ideally.
For a gun to be effective it has to be drawn and ready to shoot.
Since you missed the trial the key points are that the PROSECUTION witnesses put Trayvon on top of Zimmerman beating the crap out of him. At this point self defense applies.
Unless they can prove that Zimmerman actively started the fight they have lost. Zimmerman does not seem to be the sort to attack someone who is bigger than him.
