[Here we go again with “the gun did it” crowd who believe we should not be able to defend ourselves! – JS]
For the past month, every news station and website has been brimming with news of the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida. Most news networks are focusing purely on the racial aspect of the incident as this is what ups their ratings.
However, there is another sector of America that is looking at the Martin shooting in a completely different light. They see the case not as a racial killing but as a man with gun who shot an unarmed teen and if you listen to what they are saying, George Zimmerman is not the guilty party but rather it is the gun.
Anti-gun advocates are already amassing and starting a new round of gun control rhetoric. This supposedly senseless shooting has poured more gasoline on their fire and if conservative gun owners aren’t careful, this could be the straw that breaks the back of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
