|Probably 75% of my conceal and carry class pertained to the law and how to get out of potentially dangerous situations. I will never forget a few things my instructor said:

"You want to be a vigilante? You take that attitude and kill someone and you'll be sitting in a cell crying like a little baby in the corner. I've seen the toughest of tough guys who has killed someone and they never are the same. You don't want that...EVER. I've had guns pulled on me and I've pulled guns on others (he is a bail bondsman).....the thing I'm most proud of is I've never had to shoot at someone and I've never been shot at. Run, beg, apologize.....all things that are more acceptable than pulling your gun."
"But if left no other option, you better understand how to use your weapon and under what circumstances it is legal for you to do so."
Does it sound like this was the logic used by Zimmerman and/or Martin in the Zimmerman case? Nada. Or the case referenced here by Dirt? Nada. Or the case where the kid banged on the hood of that dude's car and shook his fist at him? Nada.
If the logic referenced above had been used by the parties involved in all these cases, everyone would still be alive.
Yeah, it's all the fault of the guns.
