Who knows? LIke I said, it's illegal for Zimmerman to have a gun in the first place, so he should've been arrested regardless if they thought it was self defense..

I've had a feeling we'd see a case like this eventually. Feel sorry for the kid.

For every 100 people who are carrying a licensed firearm for protection in case their life is in danger, there are maybe 5-10 who are carrying a firearm because it gives them "power" to take the law into their own hands.

I strongly believe there needs to be mental aptitude tests done for citizens to legally carry instead of just looking at their background. hey do the same for the armed forces and other important careers. A lot of guys who aren't criminals aren't quite as "good" as they appear when you can get a glimpse of how they think.

Dude's a felon. Maybe the rules are different in FLA but in general, felons are not allowed to have firearms, so this guy most likely wasn't even carrying the weapon legally.

I'd love to see what questions are on there.

Need to quiz people like they quiz NFL Draft prospects.

Throw some "What would you do if....." questions in there.

Having a son of my own, this case scares me. The thought that someone could gun down my baby in cold blood for nothing and not be charged makes me furious.


I would go nuts. I mean on some Sam Jack shit.

Make that 100% of the time. Who the hell needs to carry a firearm around for protection?

In your own home? Maybe, if you are a scared pansy. Carrying it around with you? What the hell for?

I see nothing wrong with it. Better safe then sorry.
