Lou Rosgen Okay Lou So what you propose is that every man and women carry a loaded gun with them at all times? I just don't think this is a rational response to a very real problem. As I said I recognize that we all have the impulse to protect ourselves against a perceived or actual threat, but I fear that, if we carry your logic to its inevitable conclusion we would end up with more unnecessary takings of life like Trayvons Martins.

Stuart Stephen Strickler I think its far more complex then tat. There are so many stories about law abiding people who :"lose it" and use their guns to kill innocent none gun carrying individuals. I don't know what the answer is or if there even is one. George Zimmerman, may have been a alas abiding citizen one moment and quite unexpectedly he might have committed a crime and become a criminal? It could happen to any one. . .Guns might stop an assailant or escalate a situation. . .

Innocent people need the 2nd amendment and Felons and Govt Thugs Need gun Control, to Control the people who Pay them.
The Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground laws in FL merely Reinforce the 2nd Amendment, clarifying that one may Protect and Defend Our Person and our Home, when threatened. It says we need not Run First and Then turn around and fire IF they don't kill us First. That is Consisten with the Constitution, as Laws Should Be. The NDAA and the Drone laws, are UN-Constitutional, to help the Thug Govt get Control of us and Slap us Down.

Let's NOT Try this FL case in the Public but in the Courts. FB is Global - with NO RIGHT to Influcence Florida Laws! There are Always Two sides to Everything, and the Angry Vocal side is Often wrong.

What about the New Black Panthers saying they are going to Burn FL Down, Kill "crackers" and their babies, etc.?? It's Convenient that black posters here IGNORE the Facts when it comes to Danger to white people and danger to ALL of America but they call to Disarm the Victims of their "brothers" in the NBP. The law should be and the Constitution IS Color-Blind. (Remember, dedicated to the purpose that ALL men are created EQUAL, and ....endowed by our CREATOR, NOT Govt, with certain INALIENABLE Rights, that Among them are.... (but then the Constitution and Bill of Rights Details those rights and NOW Black people and white, egged on by a BIASED Media Trial and Lynching, Calling for Blood and that's not Wrong per the Media and the US Government, President Himself didn't Speak Out Against Violence but is Smiling about it....
This is WRONG. I am a Floridian, who would be Put At Risk by repealing this law, along with people I care for who are elderly, weak unable to defend themselves. The Police would Not get there in Time to help me if I were attacked or an intruder broke in. I have lived in FL for the time I've not lived in 3rd world countries where people Have to care for themselves, and I've not seen such viciousness and hate against the Whole of White America, as now.
That's what Obama and Holder have brough us DOWN to, Thuggery Upheld by a Thug Federal Govt and its leader....
It is NOT because he is Half black that this happens -
it's because he is Selfish and Greedy and does what gets him Paid Extra Beyond his salary and unlimited expense accounts.... He got the Nobel Peace prize for Nothing he did, but for being the one they Chose to Put there, to Divide the People and weaken us. So far, a Lot of people are Falling for that.

Granted, you have some valid arguments yet use them to support your own bias and fears. Therein lies the problem (which you can't see). Prejudice renders us unable to make clear decisions b/c it is essentially a scued view or rather perception of reality. In other words, any "facts or generalizations" on a matter a bias individual will use to support your own bias. And if it makes you feel any better, we are all guilty of this on some level --- whether we're talking race relations or who has the best pizza joint in town.

Bottom line. We are a world of people living in a constant state of fear. A fear that manifests itself in ugly ways and in America, generally by way of our own blind ego. Just wish mankind had more love and understanding for one another than this f*ck you pay me and I'm better than you b/c bullsh*t mentality that gets us nowhere.

2. Blades (This includes pen knives, kitchen knives, scissors, machetes, swords, halberds, axes, etc. Again, are you proposing the ban on sale or possession of anything that can hold an edge?)
3. Flexible weapons (A rope, without or without weights, a chain, with or without weights, or even the belt holding up a person's trousers all fit this description.)
4. Projectile weapons (This covers bow & arrow, crossbow & bolt, sling, slingshot, a thrown rock, and, of course firearms. Are you suggesting that all rocks small enough to be thrown be ground to sand?)
5. Combination weapons

Now that you know the 5 weapon types, all I can say is of course weapons are easy to obtain; but not merely in the US. I submit that you can obtain at least one of the weapons described above in any major city in less than an hour in any country in the world provided you had the currency to pay for it.

In woodland it's even easier. It should take you less than ten minutes to find an object that will serve as a weapon under the definitions above.

Your statement that you "find it very disturbing that is is so easy for people in the States to obtain weapons of any kind" tells me that you had no idea just how broad the term is and how, by definition, plentiful they are.

The most important weapon of all sits between the ears of every living human being.

His father was an ex judge in our judicial system. No wonder he's getting away with MURDER. It's about time MURDERERS got what they gave in return.

lane, your statement is what the police observed when they arrived on the scene, properly evaluating the situation, then our treasonist president made the comment about treyvor could have been his son, we may be missing some pieces of the puzzle here, did anyoe perform DNA tests between obama and treyvor ? I seriously doubt obama would submitt to DNA testing for any reason other than criminal

Travvon was talking to a girl when attacking not attacking anybody! No time for breaking stupid Zimmerman's nose. What's wrong with Florida government? Why cant they get rid of this Stand Your ground thing?

Just think George, get rid of Stand Your Ground and then you have cower in fear. Which is better? Criminals do NOT care about the law...that's why they are criminals and they will also stop at nothing to make you fear them. This law, when applied correctly, allows citizens to defend themselves, not kill at will.

An eyewitness saw Trayvon Martin on top of and pummeling George Zimmerman and reported that to a 911 dispatcher. How do you reckon there was no time when the assault was seen and documented?

Lane Lombardia There was also a witness that states the opposite of what that witness said in the first place... smh I think the courts should be the judge

Robert Bradford I am waiting for the court to decide; but George Pope asserts as a fact what both eyewitnesses contradict. Trayvon was not on the phone at the time of the altercation.
