I am not at all in favor of gun control.. this law may need to be looked at and issues addressed but not repealed. As a cop for the last 14 years I know that we can't be every where all the time and the time it takes to respond isn't as fast as most would like ( you have to arrive not wreck to be any help plus not hurt someone trying to help others) The media is most of the problem in most cases. They only tell the part of the story that will serve their own interests. That was already...

They only tell the part of the story that will serve their own interests. That was already proven with Today Show editing of video. There should be a gag order on all crimes until the investigation is over. They keep saying that public has a right to know, ok then tell the truth and the entire story or shut the heck up. Again gag order to not report on it in the first place.. hello! I can't or wont comment on Martin and Zimmerman case other than I don't know anymore about it than the parts the media wants you to hear. If Zimmerman turns out to be wrong then I think he slipped through a crack in the process of obtaining a gun. but then again,, as a cop.. If you are wearing a gun in plain sight and get into a fight and loosing. Your life is in real threat if your gun is taken away.

I can understand what your saying but if you a gun on you in plane sight & felt you was being harmed by a teenager smaller than yourself you dont need to have a gun in the first place!!!!

Ladarron Jones I'm not supporting what Zimmerman did.. I have my reservations about the shooting as Martin was not armed.. burn him if he is wrong. But that being said,, Unless you have found yourself in a position where the only thing left is to use the gun no matter if it's one person or several, if they are armed or not. I am not saying because you have it in plaint sight gives anyone the right to go to that first. It has happened before where an otherwise ordinary contact has turned...

I am not saying because you have it in plaint sight gives anyone the right to go to that first. It has happened before where an otherwise ordinary contact has turned wrong and the officer was jumped and killed with his own gun. I guess I don't understand what your point is about someone younger and smaller than you and not needing the gun. If it's a cop then it known they carry a gun and if you do loose a fight your gun can be used against you. And if you are not aware of your situation you can be jumped even by someone smaller and younger. I don't know what this Zimmerman did but I think security guard and failed in his attempts to become a cop. If they would not take him there is probably a reason for him to not have had a gun in the first place. Also this information I have is from the media so take that for what it's worth !!

Tudo que consista em fazer sofrer os animais, é contra os meus princípios como católico, como pai e como ser superior aos animais aos mesmo. O homem deveria dar o exemplo como ser racional, mas parece que o homem ao que me consta e me apercebo, o homem não é racional, mas sim, irracional. Para mais, parece que o homem está isento de sentimentpos de amor para com os animais e, julga-se dono para fazer sofrer os irracionais pensando que eles estão isentos de dores ou doenças após as feridas...

Os governos são culpados por estas agressões contra os animais pois, já deveriam legislar leis para defesa dos animais e aplicar severas multas contra os prevaricadores.

If I am being assaulted by someone who is pounding my head into the sidewalk, I don't care if he/she is 80lbs or 500lbs, black, white, pink w purple polka dots, I'm going to get them off me any way I can including shooting them. I don't want my wife and kids to be left alone because of a criminal. I applaud these new laws. America has gone too far in protecting the criminals and strangling the victims.

The defend your ground law has ended far more crime than used to be so prevelany in south Florida, It is just an extension of the 2nd amendment, If we all carried, few would think about trying to commit crimes like all the mass shooting that have been raging our nation. The shooters would be shot before they got off many shots, Imagine the guy that shot up the movie theatre, killing a mass of people, and wounding 60. If one person in the theatre had been armed the shootings would have been...

The defend your ground law has ended far more crime than used to be so prevelany in south Florida, It is just an extension of the 2nd amendment, If we all carried, few would think about trying to commit crimes like all the mass shooting that have been raging our nation. The shooters would be shot before they got off many shots, Imagine the guy that shot up the movie theatre, killing a mass of people, and wounding 60. If one person in the theatre had been armed the shootings would have been limited to a few shots at best, the columbine shootings, literally dozens of mass murderers, which would probably not even attempted it. Obama/china wants to take our guns away from us, so they can d whatever they want. Chinese citizens make 3.8 cents for every dollar americans make, and we have dropped far down the economic ladder since doing free trade with china who uses it as an economic weapon against the free world, their masses would be in starvation mode, like north korea where untold millions have died of starvation, 1/3rd of our worlds children go to bed hungry each night. The forces of ignorance acting against our nation has imposed chinese etc slavery into our country, since we began free trade with china the NYSE gangs have exported 42,000 american factories, their slave super stores like walmart, where the slaver, the walton family take what 30 % of our entire workforce earns in what's left of americas infrastructure, with a president bent on dismantling our military, while the tyrannical starving nations spend all the cash obama sends them to build militaries to attack us, when our armed forces are below protection level, and for what? AMERICA GROWS 1/3RD OF THE WORLDS FOOD SUPPLIES. an asset they are willing to sacrifice us for to get it. What you think our political arena cares about us, or the millions they get from corrupt lobbies to end americas freedom, turning us into a racist classist state, where the elite belong to a club you can't join unless you already belong, already 80 % of jobs pay near or below minimum wage. 3 years ago walmart paid 12,000 a year to work there, now its 10,400. Slavery-free trade costs our nation more than 2 trillion in lost accrued taxation, as the criminal federal reserve loan us the money they have already stolen from us, and currently take 40 % of all taxes collected from american taxpayers---Hope obama and his 300 czars will be removed from office, prosecuted, along with the federal reserve, and we take back the more than 100 trillion in world wide assets they have acquired with stolen american taxpayer dollars---Defend your ground, if you feel threatened by the mass of criminality roaming our nation, shoot them protect your rights to freedom from oppression, its in the constitution michelle uses for sanitary paper, while obama and clinton, paste it on the bathroom whitehouse stall, upside down along with the cross and american flag, while trying to shove the homosevual manifestation on our children, in school, with sexual predators for teachers. currently a federal study shows, 1 in 5 students complain of sexual predation by public school staff, without any consequencies, while the courts tax the catholic church millions of dollars bankrupting pasrrishes, encouraging kids to say they have been molested, the rate of sexual harrassment at catholic schools is less than 1 in 1,000 students, yet the same newsmedia trying to install equal rights of marriage to the 1 in 300 relationships try and shove equality of employment on the poor victims of victims, instead of getting them the help they need, while discovering the sanduskies of america, putting an end to the unchristian, amoral, homosexual acts, as we did before clinton/obama, known for the extraordinary high incident of STD's like the aids epidemic hey spawned, contrary to obamas mentor wright, who stated whitey did it to cull the blacks from his herd. Arm yourselves regardless of what the laws state, defend yourselves against criminality in or out of government, prepare for the worst, its better to have it than not need it than to need it and not have it---Its almost unbelievable, we are having this conversation, the 2nd amendment is there for this reason, sure there will be accidents, its like driving a car down the road, only far less dangerous.

Killing is an extreme step. It can't be the starting point in settling point especially if it concerns human lives.

If you have always lived in a Glass house (sheltered; great neighborhood, but a fantasy to most), don't say anything please, your clueless to the REALITY of the Unshelted world. And we're not talking about Socialist Countries, so shut up others(non truly Democratic or free countries).

This is probably one of the most illinterprtated laws. It has been used as weapon to kill in many different situations for race, religion, or disagrement (what ever that case maybe). This "Stand Your Ground Law" was orginally invented for protection and if it were inforced correctly would work, but sadly it has up and until this date not so been done. Therefore I must say that I would have to vote for reform in that state, because as it has become clean in this case with Zimmerman, it was...

Therefore I must say that I would have to vote for reform in that state, because as it has become clean in this case with Zimmerman, it was of not self-defense to kill that poor child. He did not diserve to die at such a tender age. He had his whole life ahead of him. He could have been the person who would have up with the cure for AIDS or BREAST CANCER or many of the childhood cancers/killers we need to eliminate and now that hope could be gone. You never know. Every young life is a hope for the future. A hope for a better tomorrow. PEOPLE CHANGE! WHO WERE U AS A YOUNG TEEN?
