George Zimmerman must NOT be licensed to carry a concealed weapon. He is a dangerous, violent person, accused of assaulting three people in addition to killing Trayvon Martin. He has even been arrested for assaulting a police officer!
Do NOT give Zimmerman back the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin.
As summarized in the July 13, 2013 Huffington Post article:
It turned out this wasn't Zimmerman's first run-in with the law. He had previouslybeen accused of domestic violence by a former girlfriend, and he had also previously been arrested for assaulting a police officer.
More controversially, in July 2012, an evidence dump related to the investigation of Martin's death revealed that a younger female cousin of Zimmerman's had accused him of nearly two decades of sexual molestation and assault. In addition, she had accused members of Zimmerman's family, including his Peruvian-born mother, of being proudly racist against African Americans, and recalled a number of examples of perceived bigotry.
While much of this background information proved inadmissible at trial, the characterizations of the two men helped drive an often racially charged polarization on the issue at the heart of the case -- whether the killing of Trayvon Martin was self-defense or murder.
George Zimmerman must NOT be licensed to carry a concealed weapon.
