    "Obama Uses Zimmerman Verdict to Push Gun Control

    Leave it to President Obama to exploit a family's grief and swelling racist sentiments to push his personal agenda.

    After the verdict of not guilty came down for George Zimmerman, the racist Left launched into its predictable display of outrage, with encouragement from some members of the media.

    The family of Trayvon Martin showed extraordinary class, calling for the rest of the nation to reflect on the ruling and react peacefully.

    The Left didn't listen, creating mob scenes in several cities across the country, such as Los Angeles, Oakland and New York. The Saul Alinsky rules were in full effect, with flag burnings, death threats, beatings of white passers-by and fires, in what the Associated Press termed "mostly peaceful" demonstrations.

    Meanwhile, President Obama, never one to miss an opportunity to turn a crisis to his advantage, told the nation that after the Zimmerman verdict, "we should ask ourselves if we're doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that's a job for all of us. That's the way to honor Trayvon Martin."

    That's a fine sentiment from the man whose Administration gave us Fast and Furious, Benghazi, arms for terrorists posing as Syrian rebels and fighter jets for the Muslim Brotherhood.

    If the real goal is to prevent "tragedies like this," we could start by not publicly idolizing a pot-smoking wannabe gangsta who said the day before his death that he wanted to start a fight with someone. We can also stop pretending that a teen who tried to smash another person's head like a melon against the concrete is just an innocent victim out to buy Skittles and a soda.

    The nation's first black president could also lecture his largest constituency and the media about the rule of law and that, yes, you are considered innocent until proven guilty in a courtroom.

    Instead, Obama is pushing his radical agenda and stoking the fires of race hatred by allowing his Department of Justice to pursue federal charges in a purely local case that has already been decided.

    This is to be expected from the president who helped start the whole racial circus by inserting himself into the case and saying, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."

    What should have been the end of the effort to get Zimmerman is just going to be a speedbump on the road, thanks to the federal government. As Harry Reid said, "This isn't over with." "

    If school police had followed procedure rather than showing racial preference and not arresting Martin the week prior to artificially reduce the crime stats in their school he would have been in jail instead of being shot. Honestly, if at 17 he is already breaking in to houses to steal jewelry, i feel like the incident with Zimmerman is a win for the people of Sanford. One less criminal.

    Self-defense opponents don’t care about victims

    From Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and local NAACP President James Bible – quoted yesterday by KING 5 News – to protesters in Sanford, Fla. demanding a “review” of “Stand-Your-Ground” laws in the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal, gun rights advocates across the map are suspicious that none of these people cares about the rights of victims, they just don’t want perpetrators getting shot.

    My first thought when I heard what O said was: "what does this have to do with gun violence?"

    The violence that occured was the teenage punk assaulting the neighborhood watch. How about we address the teenage attitude and violent culture problem. The only gun involved here was used lawfully and as a last resort to defend against violence. This was not "gun violence". This was a gun being used for it's intended purpose. But then, I guess that is what he really has a problem with. Us not being reliant on the government for every aspect of our lives.

    When they tried to push those anti gun bills they exempted themselves. That is simply fear, because America is beginning to see all of them for what they are.
