  •  I think he would have continued his trend (3+ / 0-)

    of illegal activity, yes.

    First, guns aren't illegal. People own them illegally.
    Secondly, the concept of armed citizens killing innocents mistakenly can't be used to keep people like Zimmerman from having guns. Go ahead. Propose some legitimate gun control that would've done that. You can't. It won't happen.
    Thirdly, I didn't say I would want him armed.
    Fourthly, no, I can't. I think that if we had a citizen's army (militia) with no standing army, we'd have lots of armed civilians, no imperialist wars, and a lot less crime since a high percentage of people would be trained (and have in their house) a high powered rifle (if not more).
    Fifthly, I can see why people want gun control. Because they think it works. It doesn't.
    Lastly, I want armed citizens because the alternative is worse. Armed criminals and LEOs.

    We have less than 15k deaths/homicides by firearm each year. We have a total of less than 100k injuries and deaths by firearm each year. We have more defensive gun uses than that by a wide margin each year.
