    IF ZIMMERMAN DID NOT HAVE A GUN.

    If Zimmerman did not have a gun Trayvon would be alive because Trayvon could not have beaten Zimmerman to death and because Zimmerman would have fought back. He probably would not have stalked and confronted Trayvon with “what are you doing around here” at all. Zimmerman had the right to posses a gun but did not have the right to carry a gun while on neighbor watch. If he was following Trayvon, he should have left he gun in the car. Beside he was a “self appointed neighborhood watchmen.” Because he did have a gun he knew he could use it if he provoked Trayvon into reacting and attacking him and he did. Shooting appears to be premeditated and racially profiled by Zimmerman’s own words. “They always get away” and “Shit he’s’ running.” Like he’s getting away and I cannot let that happen.
    Justice Scalia said Constitution “outdated” and more gun control laws are needed. This is not the wild, wild west anymore. Lack conservative gun control laws allow guns to walk across the border and into Chicago and Oakland in the hands of gang bangers and in the homes of careless gun owners that allow guns in the home that kill 500 innocent children each year. It way past time to revisit gun control laws.

    Agreed. On the other hand however, I think the mindset of people is the real big problem with guns. Because of the ethical and moral deterioration in society where some people have no respect for other people and/or their properties, people are forced to own guns for self-defense.

    The problem with gun ownership is with political movements, especially political conservatives, who strongly advocate gun ownership and fail to emphasis to their mindless followers that not every situation calls for shooting a person who has wronged you (or whom you think have wronged you). I believe in self-defense, but will never shoot a retreating person or shoot to kill a person running away with my stolen goods.

    IF Zimmerman did not have a gun, he would be dead like any other white guy who didn't have a gun.

    But Zimmerman would likely be dead.

    If George Zimmerman had not stalked Trayvon Martin and did not have a gun, then Trayvon Martin would be alive today and nothing would have happened to simpleton George Zimmerman.

    He didn't stalk Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman had already returned to his car. Had Martin not been a thug, he'd be alive today. Both of them would be alive today.

    George Zimmerman would only be dead for instigating situation. I find it very funny that most political coservatives fail to understand that an instigator has no right to Stand Your Ground. Because an individual you attempted to intimidate gave you the very short end of stick does not give you grounds to claim self-defense.

    I bet most political conservatives think school bully who almost got killed by his wrong victim could have filed assault charges. Right?

    Katzndogz, 911 record is there to show George Zimmerman stalked Trayvon Martin:

    George Zimmerman's words:

    "Suspicious looking ...; He looks like he is up to no good ...; He looks like ...; These (a)holes always get away ...;"


    And 911 agent told George Zimmerman "we don't need you to do that ..." and urged Zimmerman to stop stalking Trayvon Martin.
