    If you live in State Representative Garnet Coleman's district, please let him know you disapprove of his attack on Texas' "Castle Doctirne" law.

    They may as well debate the Texas Castle Doctrine as the Florida "stand your ground" - neither was involved in the Zimmerman/Martin case, according to the reported facts.

    Bren, now of course they are not going to let things like facts and relevency get in the way of their agenda, do you? Naaaah.

    Coleman said he understood Martin’s plight of “being born a suspect because of the color of one’s skin.” Martin was black. The man who shot him, George Zimmerman, is Hispanic.

    Am I wrong or isn't this statement in and of itself, racist?

    Au Contraire.

    As to the Zimmerman case, the MSM and the black activists want to make it a racial issue, but the real issue is whether Zimmerman pursued Martin and Martin subsequently attacked him, or Zimmerman 'Stood His Ground' and Martin attacked him without a pursuit taking place.

    If Zimmerman called 911, then stood his ground as Martin approached him, the Stand Your Ground law should protect him.

    If instead he chose to pursue Martin after being advised that the police were on the way, then he became the aggressor. He did not 'Stand His Ground'.

    The Stand Your Ground statute is the only thing that is really relevant to the case. Which is why Florida gun owners should support Zimmerman only if he truly did stand his ground according to the letter and intent of the statute.

    Otherwise, it was a bad shoot, and they should call for his arrest and prosecution.

    Supporting Zimmerman if he was in the wrong is counter to the needs of gun owners, and threatens the statute far more than any cry from the left.

    So, in other words, the "people of color" must be involved in criminal activity or violence at a higher rate that the "people of non-color" to use Coleman's way of thinking.

    yeah, we need a whole new protected class of citizens now, and special laws that protect only "Criminals of color.":upeyes:

    Gonna have to get in touch with the Dem from Dallas. Coming from a smaller town to the big city, the increase in liberal thinking in ideals is blinding though. It doesnt suprise me that they are trying this.

    I highly doubt that anyone is going to change Rep. Coleman's mind about the Castle Doctrine. He fought it when it was being debated in 2005, so he is using the Martin case to exert the political pressure to call for repeal.

    As for Zimmerman, I'm withholding judgement until as many of the true facts surrounding the incident as possible come out.
