Gun Control California: Stockton School Shooting In 1989 Was Catalyst For Stricter Gun Control

Gun Control California: Stockton School Shooting In 1989 Was Catalyst For Stricter Gun Control

Commented Dec 18, 2012 at 23:23:46 in Los Angeles

“I am sure everyone would be happy with some gun control, as long as it is reasonable. Control of guns is already pretty heavy..especially in California..however there are two problems.
#1 all the mass murderers have been insane...can we do something about mental illness too? Because controlling guns for insane people doesn't keep them out of their hands as we see time and again.
#2 can we also control the thugs and drug dealers that are roaming around, in the last 4 years I am hearing gunfire in my own neighborhood, and these were not cheap homes...till they allowed $500,000 homes to become section 8 housing after a while lot of foreclosures. I am distraught of all the turn of events...very distraught....but I feel our country has just gone insane overnight.”

Trayvon Martin Autopsy Report: Killed By Bullet Fired At Intermediate Range

“Trayvon Martin is only judged by his actions...and that is quite a lot! He was well ahead of Zimmerman, and yet needed to double back instead of continuing to Brandy Greens townhouse to pick a fight with Zimmerman, who had the right to defend his life. George Zimmerman is a good man, there needs to be more GZ and a lot less of the Trayvons in this world! Try and twist it...but those intelligent people out there know the truth!”

“You are not judging TM by his actions. You are judging him based on the word of the man with the most to gain by lying.”

“That is absolutely correct and its the true story but it may not be recieved well you know.Most people like the fairytale version ...you know........this poor child was stalked and confrinted by this mean man who wanted to hurt him...........thats the La la land version.”

“Zimmerman stalked and murdered an unarmed kid. Kind of hard to keep making excuses for that, isn't it?”

“According to the 911 recording, GZ was in a hurry to finish the call. For what? So he could go and run after TM? I wouldn't think otherwise. I don't believe GZ ever went to the other street looking for an address like he said. I think he went running after TM and the kid died standing his ground. But the biggest mistake was made by the sanford police who didn't do their job right so the truth could be seen. And if we all got an ethnic dna test done we would all find out that we have a little of different races including black so why be a racist since there is no such thing as pure blood this days. And to think we are in a supposedly advanced time and age and people still act like cavemen.”

“Alana...you are not very bright are you...can you direct me to one single credible news source that is reporting this supposed "punk ethug" kid had ever been in a single fight before he had the misfortune of encountering Zippy Zimmerman? Go ahead and fill me in on your theory that this kid, who was in unfamiliar surroundings and ran away from zippy, decided for the first time in his enitre life that he not only wanted to fight, but that he wanted to beat someone to death with his bare hands...I don't believe for one second this kid decided to double back for the SOLE purpose of administering an asswhipping to this menacing stranger who was following him first by car, and then on foot....why don't you open your sleepy llittle eyes and use the brain you claim to have for once in your life....Zippy Zimmerman is a straight up liar...he has many, many inconsistenciesinhis story...make sure you send some money to his defense fund...he's gonna need it....”

“You are so right and you are fanned and faved.The kid bought the farm by his own racist actions against a white man that asked him a question.Should have stayed home,watched the basketball game and smoked pot with dear ole Dad like his was doing.Too bad he got te munchies!”

“...and the others will be wiping egg from their face. Sadly, others will say Zimmerman's father paid the Special Prosecutor off. Some have already said the photos of the injuries were photoshopped. Those will never learn the truth because they would rather believe the lie they have been told.
I have never in my life seen so many enraged, ignorant people. By the way, people, ignorant means you don't know something, but you may be capable of learning..”

“I'd love to read the sources for your information, because I have read a lot about this case on various reputable news websites and I've never come across that. I would guess Fox News, but I seem to remember them being fairly quiet on the issue. So please, show me some sources since you are presumably one of these enlightened, intelligent people. Surely that can't be too hard? 

If your definition of a good man includes domestic violence charges, assaulting a police officer, following people in a car while carrying around a gun, clearly, we have very different definitions of a "good man."

We don't need more people in this world willing to shoot someone on the street. ”
