    His trial will outdue O.J.s, and he being without the money. Even with O.J., no special prosecutor was brought in, no FBI, or threat of civil rights investigations, etc.

    This is bigger then Mr. Zimmerman, this is a attack on both gun rights, and CCW, which many are talking about "revisiting", even though there is nothing to suggest anything is wrong with the law.

    Bull. This matter is about a man who killed another man, period. Now the killer wants to blame the dead man. No surprise.

    Will this bring scrutiny to bear on cc and the 2nd Amendment? Yes. There are aspects of cc that need to be examined. If this killer is ultimately able to use the law to shield himself from punishment, then the law has been bastardized and needed to be changed immediately. If that rubs someone the wrong way, to bad.

    As to the 2nd Amendment, cc is without any basis as propounded by those who want to run around playing Doc Holiday... helping the local sheriff deal with the boys.

    What parts of CC laws need to be examined?

    If Zimmerman did not pursue, and he was attacked, then he was within his rights to defend himself. Would you argue that point? Amend the CC laws to go back to the time when you had to retreat as far as possible before neutralizing a deadly threat?

    If Zimmerman did pursue, then no part of the statute supports him.

    would you like to share this information you seem to have that no one else does? I mean you seem to have some kind of information proves he is guilty even of the police report not been released. So what is evidence to prove this was anything but self defense?

    The subject of killing a human is FAR more complex than your statement makes it. In most states, a killing can end up as:

    First Dgree Murder
    Second Degree Murder
    Voluntary Manslaughter
    Involuntary Manslaughter
    Justifiable Homicide

    The brackets cannot be lumped into one level.

    What's the old saying... "If it walks like a duck... and quacks like a duck... etc., then it must be a duck."

    I do not consider that one must be clairvoyant to see that a man walking down the sidewalk is just a man walking down the sidewalk. And... a man following that man in a car is a just a man following that man own the street in a car... until he gets out of that car... accost the man walking on the sidewalk... and then pulls a gun and shoots the other man all because he says he was being attacked. Color the man on the ground white. Color the killer African-American and try to say that the same exact grasping at straws now being played out by cc advocates would be being followed. In any other reality, the killer would have been arrested and jailed. He would only be out and about if he made bail, etc., etc. These are the simple facts that any reasonable person can see. The only ones who seem to have problems seeing it are those who don't want to see the proverbial forest for the trees.

    If... sounds like a refrain from Kipling. There is no doubt that the killer stalked Martin. He said he did. There is no doubt the killer accosted Martin. He said he did. There is no doubt that the killer "killed" Martin. He said he did. He sought out and initiated the incident that led to the death of a innocent man... innocent because it is not against the law for any man to go to a convenience store and buy some candy and a drink and walk back to the house and expect to be left alone to go about his own private business. If someone is so concerned about their particular understanding of cc that they can't see that, then they are blind.

    Pure speculation at this juncture.
