It comes as little surprise to see George Zimmerman acquitted of the charges of second degree murder and manslaughter in the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida last year. From day one, the evidence to support such an allegation just wasn’t there and none presented during the trial did anything to disprove Zimmerman’s claims.
My initial concerns of him receiving a fair trial were in the forefront of my thoughts during the trial, seeing many from the judge going in favor of the prosecution, but in the end, justice prevailed and Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges.
At least, in a court of law he was acquitted. A heavily biased media whipped the Black Community and Liberals into a frenzy since they first made the case national news, editing audio to make Zimmerman sound racist, portraying Martin as an innocent 12 year-old simply buying Skittles and even trying to portray Zimmerman as White, changing that label to White Hispanic when his true ethnicity came out.

It seems shortly after any horrific shooting, where some crazed gunman goes on a frenzy shooting up another gun free zone, as we saw last year in Aurora, Colorado and the Newtown Elementary shootings, misguided individuals crawl out of the woodwork with their cries of “we need gun control,” “repeal the second amendment” and “pass an assault weapons ban.”
These and many more cries begin within minutes of such horrific events, receive lots of press and TV time and a lot of noise is made in Congress from self-serving politicians demanding a ban on any and everything in sight and without a clue of why there is a second amendment or that gun-free zones provide easy targets for malcontents bent on causing mayhem and death.
Eventually, the noise lessens, misguided gun grabbers crawl back into their holes, useless legislation might be passed and largely ignored and nothing really changes.
We saw this same scenario playing out after the Newtown shooting, but the noise level is increasing again as those misguided individuals are still screaming for a piece of paper with words on it, falsely believing it will protect them from the criminal element.

An unidentified 15 year-old girl speaks before a legislative body, I believe in Maryland and with a little bit of common sense, deconstructs every single strawman argument currently being promoted by gun grabbers in America.
Well done, young lady.
We must ask ourselves, how is it a 15 year-old can so easily see the fallacy of the current cries of gun-grabbers and is willing to speak out to protect her future rights, yet so many others sit back quietly and hope there are sufficient numbers of other people willing to take stand and protect our rights?

UPDATE: No charges will be filed against this moron “Camas Police Department said the parent’s actions did not constitute an immediate threat.”
For any who can’t understand why many of us advocate arming qualified volunteer teachers in schools, I give you the facebook outburst of one unhinged frustrated parent here in Clark County
This parent, who according to KATU News remains unidentified, was “frustrated” after a basketball game Tuesday evening between the Camas and Skyview boys teams. Police have been notified and are investigating this parent.
But in the meantime, how does a parent get so worked up over a basketball game that he publicly hopes the school gets “shot up?”

The following video was produced by the city of Houston, Texas and the Department of Homeland Security as a training aid to inform citizens of how to react and what to do to survive an active shooting incident like we have seen lately. While there is some excellent advice, depending on the exact situation a person my find themselves in and of course, the location, they do not mention getting the proper training on the use of a firearm, arming yourself and being prepared to use it if need be.
It is unlikely that any of us would ever be faced with such a situation, but not as unlikely as it once was. It could happen in a location where you cannot run, cannot hide or do not have anything to improvise as a weapon to defend yourself. Buying a gun alone is not good enough. You must be trained, maintain proficiency and be prepared to take a life. If not, you should not arm yourself.

Jimmy Hoffa Jr., leader of the Teamsters Union outraged some people recently as he stood before a crowd, introducing Barack Obama saying, “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong.” I say some because apparently, such incendiary rhetoric coming from a Democrat is acceptable.
We know that anything said by a conservative is quickly linked to any subsequent crime or tragic event, as we saw this past January when Democrat Representative Gabrielle Giffords was shot, others killed and wounded by an apparently mentally disturbed young man.
It didn’t take but minutes for the propaganda machine to rev up blaming the shooting on Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Republicans and conservatives of any sort. That there was absolutely no evidence of any nature of any political intent or linkage made no difference, liberals went on a verbal rampage of condemnation and many continue it even after it has come out that the shooter, Jared Loughner had no political affiliation other than a last known liberal leaning years ago.
That was quickly ridiculed and the manufactured outrage directed at conservatives continued to fly.
