Most of right thinking America knew that any type of murder charge should never have been brought against George Zimmerman. Thank God for the acquittal.
But, this may be a partial win for the Leftist anti Second Amendment types.
Just some facts:
Having a handgun is very,very serious. There are far too many deaths (not crime related) that occur because of a handgun and the irresponsible carelessness of the owner.
I am trained in handgun use and handgun safety and have been taught very well by an expert in handgun use. I live in a state that (for now) does not have conceal/carry but through my work I am allowed to carry (don’t ask.)
I know how serious it is to contemplate pulling out a weapon, pointing it at a human being and making the decision to KILL someone. This will be the most important decision of your life.
Even if it is a “good shoot”.
Even if you were saving your life or the life of someone else, what happened to George Zimmerman could happen to you.
In a perverse way, the media attention (as despicable as it all was) may have actually helped with the case for the defense. But for Joe Smuck in in any other little podunk town, he may be convicted.
What is the rest of Zimmerman’s life going to be like?
How can he get his reputation back?
Will this follow him the rest of his life?
This is how this is a partial win for the gun grabbers. How many people will actually NOT choose to have a handgun for their personal protection because THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU !!!!
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Obama InJustice Department either knew they could not get a conviction or didn’t care if they got a conviction as long as it moved the Alinsky agenda forward.
