smt131 Gotta' love that Second Amendment!


An Ohio political action committee is raising money to buy George Zimmerman a new gun, the group announced on its website Saturday.

The Buckeye Firearms Foundation wants to provide the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin "with the funds he needs to replace his firearm, holster, and other gear."

The pro-gun group takes issue with the Department of Justice's decision to put a hold on all evidence in the Zimmerman case, including the gun he used to kill Martin, until it determines whether or not Zimmerman violated Martin's civil rights. While Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder charges, is permitted to purchase a new gun, the group expressed concern on its website that the Justice Department is attacking all gun owners:
"This is outrageous. [Attorney General Eric] Holder is this nation's chief law enforcement officer. It is his job to uphold the laws, to support and defend our system of justice.
This move to prevent Mr. Zimmerman from claiming his property is an unacceptable abuse of power. And the threats of federal charges on civil rights grounds is little more than blatant pandering for political gain.

Moreover, based on statements he and others have made recently, Holder hopes to use this as the first step toward renewing this administration's attack on gun rights."


The Buckeye Firearms Foundation is not the first to offer Zimmerman assistance. Brad Thor, a conservative author, took to Twitter last week to say he would buy Zimmerman a new gun and as much ammunition as he wants.

Read part of the post describing the "Zimmerman Second Amendment Fund" below:
"This is about more than mere principle. Zimmerman and his family now face daily threats on their lives. More than ever, he has a right to defend himself against those who would seek to do him harm.
Gun owners must stand together and refuse to allow an injustice like this to go unanswered. If we choose to sit idly by while the full force and weight of the federal government descends upon a free man, it will embolden others to take liberties with our rights."

The TMZ headline is so silly that it's what you might expect from a spoof website.

Mind your own business, drjohncarpenter. If you don't like or appreciate this thread then go to YouTube and watch some lame, empty-worded speeches by your boy, Barack.

Talk about staying on topic...
Your words of "Give it a rest" are rude and arrogant and have nothing to do with George Zimmerman or The Zimmerman verdict.

FYI --> this topic has now been removed because some members repeatedly displayed a problem with the ... tone of this topic. It's pathetic such people choose to belong to a forum whose subject had a very democratic vision of his music, associates and country. It's one of the greatest speeches to date in President Obama's second term, and will be viewed by history as very significant.

At least I am certain Elvis Presley would have been deeply moved by President Obama and his eloquent comments last Friday.

:roll: Yeah, he would have been moved... much the same way Ex-Lax would've moved him.

Having a different opinion isn't the issue. Personal attacks and inflammatory comments are what cause the problems, but then again some people are only capable of insulting people rather than focusing on the discussion.

Interesting to compare this verdict with that of O J Simpson
