    The NRA is the biggest domestic terrorist group in the United States, maybe the world. They love their guns more than people. With politicians in their pockets all we can do is brace ourselves for the next NRA sponsored slaughter.
    The policies and laws created by The NRA killed the kids in Newtown and allowed the vigilante George Zimmerman to murder Trayvon Martin.
    STAND YOUR GROUND is nothing more than a license to legally hunt and kill African Americans PERIOD~ http://youtu.be/OqZqGql9ml4

    Get off the racist crp. It was self defence someone felt their life was in danger and by law we have every right and means possible to defend ourselves.
    The jury which you may or may not have or will be one made the decision based on the evidence presented.
