    is the wrong message to be sending sociopaths like GZ. The politicians who allowed these laws to go into effect are every bit as guilty as the bartender who keeps serving an intoxicated patron before they drive off and kill somebody or the "friend" who loans somebody money to buy heroin just before they overdose. GZ shouldn't be encouraged by law to "stand your ground", he needs to back off, take a deep breath, and consider the consequences... Three little steps are all too easily overlooked when armed with a Glock and a volatile temper.

      music to the ears of the gun manufacturers that seek to profit from the mayhem and fear caused by sociopaths like GZ. To them it sounds like this:
