“Not only do I wish that ignorant celebs that are still blaming a law that had NOTHING to do with this case would stay out, I wish the people that live here and agree with them would leave as well! It would clean out most of the criminal sympathizers and criminals that don't want anyone to oppose them. Once the crime statistics plummet afterward they will be replaced with tourists that realize Florida is much safer than it was before.”

“People like this have no regard for others! I had a drunk girl all over me one night at a bar and I could see the way other men were looking at her. I told the bartender to call her a cab because she had no freinds with her. Some of my freinds told me I should have taken advantage of her....they don't know me very well and they are no longer my freinds!”

“This case has never been anout SYG, it is simple self defense. If GZ is telling the truth and was attacked he wasn't standing his ground, he was fighting for his life! Observing and reporting is not stalking! Anyone that sees a suspicious person in their neighborhood might do the same, the difference here is that he had a gun so people think he wanted to shoot someone! If I was minding my own business and someone I didn't know was following me I would be pissed too but if I walk up and punch him and start caving his face in and bashing his head on concrete I wouldn't expect him to not defend himself! I've been followed before by a car in my own neighborhood when I was younger and walking with my brother, I was ready to fight too but it was the police in an unmarked car looking for two guys that robbed a house.This was stupid misunderstanding mixed with testosterone and it ended badly! I hope justice is done here and not revenge, believe it or not they are'nt the same thing!”

“Don't people who have had their 'face caved in' and skull repeatedly bashed onto concrete usually need medical attention?

“What people need to start changing is the culture of the people that are commiting these shootings. How many of these stories cited involved guns that were aquired legally? I feel horrible for the dad but leaving a loaded gun on a coffee table? GOOD LORD! That is just ignorant as hell! When my nephew was about 9 my sister came over and I had a gun out, she told him it wasn't real! I was pissed! I told him right then, "This is a real gun and it can hurt you." Ignorance of guns or anything else and how to properly respect them can kill you! We have a President that the vast majority of minorities voted for and he needs to address this issue on a national stage and tell them that this behaviour is not acceptable and no excuses! Stop killing each other! They won't listen to a white man or a black conservative but maybe he can actually do some good and get through to these people! I lived in a neighborhood around this stuff and it broke my heart knowing how these kids would grow up.CULTURE is killing our kids!”

“People like to make excuses for behavior they can't understand. They blame guns or drugs or mental illness. Humans are emotional creatures and our capacity for love is equal with our capacity to hate. When you look at most murders the motivation is either wealth/power or revenge. Mass shootings are revenge killings and at some point these killers see themselves as victims of another person or group of people.Fired workers, bullied children and wronged lovers for the most part are not mentally ill or considered to be so until after they kill. Thugs in inner city minority communities murder more people than anyone yet nobody considers them to be mentally ill. People want to think they are making a difference with laws that in fact do very little if anything to enhance their safety but they will pat each other on the back and be proud that they are such wonderful caring people. The best way to not be a killer is to not be a victim! Take responsibily for your life and your actions! Everyone is gonna get a raw deal they don't deserve now and then but most of the time you have direct influence in what happens to you. It is a fact that someone who votes democrat or would if not for felony convictions is much more likely to kill you than any conservative. Why is that?”

“When will Obama tell the relatives of his voting base to turn in these thugs in the cities that are killing each other left and right? Why is he afraid to condemn this culture of violence in minority communities? When is he going to call on the good decent people that know who these thugs are to stand up and say something? Is he afraid of alienating the people that revere him as a demi-god and destroying his reputation? Where is the outrage? Where is the concern for young men that might look like his son if he had one being murdered by other young men that also might look like his son! Come on Emperor! Make some new gun laws that keep middle school kids from buying a gun! Surely he had to have passed a background check or a mental health exam! He had to have waited 3 days to get it though right? It must not have been a gun free zone otherwise he wouldn't dare bring it to school! Maybe our public education is just so bad he couldn't read the sign? Give me something to work with here people!”

“That's a beautiful thought but in order to enjoy something you must first be alive to do so. A lot of people die while enjoying the beauty of nature but not knowing how dangerous it can be. A simple hike through the country can lead to death because while looking at the trees and sky you don't notice the rattlesnake or the bear. I wish the world wasn't this way and I wish people weren't the way they are but it just is. I can tell you are a good person but you haven't been where I have been and seen what I have seen. I hope you never do. I hope you maintain that positive outlook and don't become an old cynic like me. Take care.”

“When people see a storm approaching they stock up on gas,food and water. If they don't they are fools! When that storm misses them they don't regret being prepared for it but if it does they will be glad they did. People that don't do everything they can to preserve themselves and their families safety are going to be victims. Whether it's a hurricane or a street gang you must be prepared! Liberals have good hearts but they live in one world that is real and think in one that isn't. They have unrealistic ideas about how people should behave and have no understanding of human nature.There will always be bad people and good people.Bad people want to hurt you and good people don't want to be hurt. Some of those good people rely on the other good people to protect them from the bad ones. I'm not one of those good people, I'm the other kind and so are millions of gun owners! You take away our ability to do that when you take away our means to do that.”

“It's their money, they earned it, they can spend it however they see fit. I'm surpised Obama doesn't take the bullets and guns they buy and redistribute them to the people that can't steal,rob or sell enough crack to get them.This is simple, if you tell someone there isn't going to be enough of something or that it will cost more later or no longer be available they are going to want it while it is available and cheap. Before a storm people stock up on gas, food and water because they know they might not be able to get it for awhile or that the price will go up.Look at the mad rush to buy Twinkies! Things become more valuable based on their rarity. Maybe Obama should ban jobs just so people will go get one!”

“I'm glad to hear you debunk the myth about black men and their ding dongs since they are the ones that actually use guns to kill each other more than any other demographic. Do you have experience in this field? Maybe it's only the law abiding citizen with this issue since I read somewhere that John Dillinger was hung like a horse! Perhaps the women are compensating for not having one or could it be they don't want to be sexually assaulted by someone that does. Maybe that's something you don't have to worry about. Every gun I have was bought from a store with background checks and all the ammo I have was bought afterward. People that sport shoot or practice a lot the way RESPONSIBLE gun owners do requires a large ammount of ammo be used! People will just stop practicing as much and then when they need to use the gun and miss the target you can cry some more about COLLATERAL DAMAGE!”

If libs were so intent on stopping gun violence they would be down in the crime infested cities where strong gun laws mean nothing and where most murders occur! The culture promoted by libs is what has to be changed because it is the attitude among young people that they are victims and if someone has something they don't it's because they took it from them!

“So, because of your "discomfort" with the historical white implication of rape, torture and murder, you want a movie to show white people "trying to survive." No, apparently you do not get it. This movie is small in the broader realm of race-based violence. Secondary education and media coverage have neglected to fully discuss the history of racialized violence. Let's not forget the Tulsa riots. Let's not forgot the lynchings where men were tortured, maimed and kept as survivors (Sam Hose, Frances McIntosh). Or, how about the women--mothers, cut open to have their baby stomped and killed (Mary Turner). There are so many more events and victims that need discussion and reconciliation from the consequences of racialized terror. Everyone feels horror from knowing America's history---not just men who have difficulty with self-preservation.”
