President Barack Obama issued a long-awaited response Sunday afternoon to the acquittal of George Zimmerman Saturday evening, reminding Americans to temper "passions," and that "we are a nation of laws and the jury has spoken."
He added that Americans should "honor" the life of Trayvon Martin by committing to "stem the tide of gun violence," and "ask ourselves if we are doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion in our communities."

Bloomberg: End 'Shoot First' Laws
New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, in his latest attempt to demagogue the gun-control issue, used the occasion of George Zimmerman’s acquittal to release a statement on Sunday that asserted his desire to eradicating “Stand Your Ground” laws. Critics of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which permits citizens to use deadly force if they feel they are in physical danger, have called the laws “Shoot-First” laws. Bloomberg used that terminology in his statement, in which he said:
Sadly, all the facts in this tragic case will probably never be known. But one fact has long been crystal clear: ‘shoot-first’ laws like those in Florida can inspire dangerous vigilantism and protect those who act recklessly with guns. Such laws – drafted by gun lobby extremists in Washington – encourage deadly confrontations by enabling people to shoot first and argue ‘justifiable homicide’ later. Last year, I joined a broad coalition of civic leaders to shine a light on the impact of ‘shoot-first’ laws and work to eliminate them, in Florida and wherever they have been passed. We will continue that work – and the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed child attempting to walk home from the store, will continue to drive our efforts.

And this from our prez who said sometime back in 2008 during his campaign:
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,”
Sorry ... has become my favorite expression these days!

That creepy-assed graham cracka started all this. It's sorta like the arsonist who sets fire to a house, and then shouts, "FIRE........!"
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

And what would the MSM, especially the fools at MSNBC, have done without it to try to recapture some of their ratings?
Not to mention the O admin. They must have loved the distraction of it all!!!
*Edit* ... letters "MHC" is a personal acronym, don't bother looking it up! And outta here!
