You think this self-styled cop wannabe still living with his parents would have left
his vehicle and approached this kid without a weapon in his hand?  So yes, genius,
it is about the gun.

if george zimmerman had the right thing troyvon martin would still be alive, if he had not followed tyronvon and did as the police said the problem would had been resolved, troyvon would have told police that he was visiting his father and then called his father on the cellphone as proof and the problem solved.  Instead george zimmerman wanted to get him a black child.  He can be heard saying fu##ing coon, of course that did not mean he hated blacks but the words are offensive.

i find something funny. Many people seem to want to go
straight to the law and blame that for what ever reason
an injustice has occurred. The Florida gun law is fine,
what is not fine was the man who killed an innocent
I wonder where all the cartoons are depicting the
states where you cannot carry a gun yet people are shot
and killed there. unless those killings are different.
