Deconstructing Rolling Stone’s Zimmerman-Inspired Anti-Gun Rant

"Rolling Stone can be counted on for two things: revealing pictures of pop stars and a distinctly anti-gun bias. Why a magazine about the music industry would consistently venture into the world of politics is beyond me, and seeing how poorly their articles are researched makes me wonder how they have any credibility left whatsoever. They only succeed in proving my point at the very beginning of their recent article entitled 'George Zimmerman and Weaponized Racism' by picturing a Remington 1911 handgun and labeling it as a 9mm, not taking the three seconds to Google the model number prominently etched on the slide. Trust me, it only gets worse from there . . ." ...

Rick Scott last night made it clear to anti-self-defense activists that he is standing by the state’s 'Stand Your Ground' (SYG) statute, bringing an end to a two-day occupation of his office by a group calling itself 'Dream Defenders' who are protesting the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case." ...

"As Washington Times senior editor Emily Miller seemed to suggest today, Attorney General Eric Holder has pulled out all the stops to persecute (as opposed to prosecute) exonerated Florida armed citizen George Zimmerman by 'stealing' his pistol by putting an investigative hold on all evidence from the Trayvon Martin trial, and holding out the threat – like the proverbial sword of Damocles – that a federal civil rights charge might be forthcoming." ...

"It was a good week for gun owners in many respects."

"First, unless you were living in a cave the past few days, you have surely heard about the acquittal of George Zimmerman in Florida."

"While this was certainly a tragic case, the jury followed the law and acquitted Zimmerman of second degree murder — in the case which has now become internationally famous."

"Predictably, the Obama administration is using this case to demonize gun owners and attack Stand Your Ground laws around the country — laws which remove a person’s duty to retreat prior to using deadly force when facing 'death or great bodily harm.'" ...

"In the days following the conclusion of the Zimmerman trial, many questions have been raised about defensive gun use, Castle Doctrine, Stand Your Ground Laws and concealed carry requirements. But putting all of the Zimmerman stuff aside – if that’s even possible at the moment – debates about concealed carry are nothing new."

"Gun laws vary drastically from state to state and it is a gun owner’s own responsibility to know their state’s legislation. In the case of firearms, probably more so than anything else, ignorance is never an acceptable excuse for breaking the law. And regardless of personal feelings about the regulations, as a law abiding citizen you are required to – well, abide by those laws." ...

"Gun gurus talk about the 'fight or flight' response. They warn students that they will experience one or both of these adrenalin-fired reactions to extreme stress/danger. No matter which way an individual reacts—and they usually don’t get to choose—they’re looking at severely degraded motor coordination skills, reduced cognition and a general inability to think strategically. Hence the gurus’ insistence on endless (and endlessly profitable) training to develop 'muscle memory' and other 'instinctive' shooting self-defense skills. Yes, but—there is a far more common and dangerous reaction to life-threatening danger: freezing. You see it above in the clerk’s reaction and . . ." ...

"I was over at the used tire store the other day, getting a flat repaired and the subject turned to reloading. Did they have any lead wheel weights for sale? No, came the reply, they were all pledged to go to a fellow who cast fishing sinkers out of them. ... Competition comes in all shapes and sizes. From there the conversation moved on to the old 'best places to shoot' discussion. I bemoaned the fact that if I wanted to shoot I had to drive all the way down south and west of town to the Helena Wildlife Management area -- a trip of about 50 miles one way. Had I heard about the 'new place' up in Blount County? No, I hadn't. I have since learned about Greenridge Shooting Range and visited there yesterday." ...

"The death of Trayvon Martin has ignited debate not just over our justice system, but on legislation such as the “stand your ground” laws that contributed to the tragic result. Bill talks with author and gun industry analyst Tom Diaz about how a lethal combination of self-defense laws and concealed carry laws — championed by the NRA and the gun industry — makes us more vulnerable to gun violence. He warns that the genie is out of the bottle and we should be gravely concerned about the unrelenting marketing of guns.

"Few elements of this case have been more widely misunderstood than the 'stand your ground' (SYG) element. Quite simply, Florida’s SYG law, statute 776.012, simply rescinded a previous requirement that one had to retreat if possible before using deadly force in self-defense. This did not particularly change the rules of engagement. The previous law had demanded retreat only if it could be accomplished in complete safety to oneself and other innocent people present. It is hard to imagine a situation in which one WOULD kill another person if they could have simply walked away unscathed." ...

The neighborhood watchman who shot and killed an unarmed teen in a Florida suburb on Feb. 26, 2012, was acquitted by a jury of six women this past weekend. Zimmerman is now free and his victim, Trayvon Martin, is still dead."

"Perhaps the irony – if irony is appropriate when an unarmed youth is killed – is that Florida has a stand-your-ground law and that Zimmerman supporters have used that as a justification for the shooting of Martin. But Zimmerman did not stand his ground; Martin did. The only problem was Martin brought fists to a gun fight." ...
