    The murder was racial--not dress code.  The FL law was racially motivated--not a surprise.  If we want this to stop, 2 things need to be done.  First, all African-Americans need to apply for gun licenses--this will scare the shit out of racists--and be useful for voter id.  Second--many need to buy guns for self defense.  Trayvon should have stood his ground and shot the stalker.
    When confronting a bully, being polite NEVER works--the bastard needs to be super bullied.

      many states use things like gun permits to replace the tax cuts they're always screaming about. So the fees are pretty steep.
      In Texas, a concealed carry license is $140, or $70 for indigent residents or seniors.

        Start a charity for gun permits--scare the bully even more.  Also--doesn't this expense make voter id a poll tax?  Are there free ids readily available?
