Castle Doctrine doesn't apply to the Zimmerman case because it wasn't his property. Stand your ground seems kind of far fetched becuse Zimmerman approached Trayvon initially.
The age, sex, race, ethnicity, color, religious, or political beliefs of the shooter have no bearing to me whether I believe the shooting is righteouss or not. If an 80 year old woman shoots a kid knocking on her door selling magazines to support little league and kills them, I don't care how scared she was that is murder plain and simple and she needs to go to jail.
I don't have an error of thought. I am a strong advocate of the second ammendment, I am a gun owner, I believe in concealed carry and I need to get my own permit soon. I also believe that some people, when they strap on a gun, have the belief that they are invincible and can do things that a rational man would look at afterwards and say "What the hell were you thinking?" I will defend my family to my very last breath with whatever means are necessary, if I have to, but I am not sitting here in the dark, clutching my pistol, shotgun by my side, hoping for the opportunity to shoot someone. I think many times you guys come off almost blood thirsty in your descriptions and stories of how you can't wait for society to collapse so you can stack "bad guys" like cord wood at the ends of your driveways. Sorry that isn't me. I will do what I have to but not with any happiness about it.
