    Ol' Bill usually have some good stuff to say, especially when directed towards the black community.
    In this case, he might want to get facts straight before commenting.

    Not to excuse him but his opinion could be colored by having his own son murdered i 97. He's still wrong however, because I don't own a gun to hurt people, I'm interested in protecting me and mine

    I like Bill Cosby. He is one of the few in the African-American community who speaks the unvarnished truth to his race and culture regarding their disintegrating family/social structures. In this case, I think he is wrong.

    Anybody think Zimmerman would have had the guts to follow if he wasn't armed? I think Cosby is essentially right on that issue.

    He is still wrong about the gun being the problem, or that just because this one person screwed up doesn't mean other people aren't smart enough to join neighborhood watch, carry a gun, and still not play cop.

    The problem is that the fundamental argument that Cosby is making is the basis for which all violations of the 2A are founded.

    Bill Cosby isn't a stupid man and he usually gives some pretty good advice. In this particular instance, I think his bias about guns is influencing his decision. I mean, you've gotta understand where the guy is coming from with this.

    Last time Bill gave the black community good advice, he was roundly vilified for it.

    It's never fun to be a pariah in your own community. He has been 'schooled' to 'go along and get along' .....:upeyes:

    If we are going to speculate then yes, I think he still would have followed. Not much good as a neighborhood watch if he didn't go and watch.

    If his son had a gun, he might be alive.
