anyone that can't differentiate between a guy in the boonies with a ton of guns for hunting reasons versus a person carrying a handgun in a city/suburbs for self protection, well... I don't know what say about them. I think there's a large disconnect (and I'm talking on a national level now) between staunch 2nd amendment advocates, the stricter gun laws people and common sense.

It especially grinds my gears when someone uses the argument "I've never needed a gun in my life, so I don't think anyone else would either."


for some reason this reminds me of something a girl in my high school said.

"the americans who fought the british didnt need guns to win our freedom, so why do we need them?"

He may be guilty, then again he may not. Even a trial won't give us a true picture.

My guess is that these charges will be dropped by the girl friend. Not sure if the state would persue on thier own after that.

Of course you do honey, of course you do, he stands to make a lot of money for the book and movie rights to his story.

Will she now be prosecuted for filing a false police report?

I'm betting these two love birds end up back in the news within six month for another incident.

Any takers?

I don't doubt that the way she reported the incident to 911 and the police was accurate. I also don't doubt that she's insane.

None taken. I just don't get why the media is following every single thing this guy does now. He'll never have privacy again. It's a shame.

lol not even remotely true. And not because I'm a Zimmerman defender (or not); but because I've been to Florida.

I like the post DMX quote line about what he intends to do to his face. Also, last I saw, DMX had actually recovered from his tiny post rehab size. When he was rapping rudolf the red nosed raindeer, he looked to be up to a decent size.

Anyone following the Dunn trial? The prosecution just needs to not screw up for this to be an easy conviction.
