The Trayvon Martin story has now developed into two narratives: one, that neighborhood watch captain trigger-happy goon George Zimmerman shot and killed an unarmed 17 year old for being in the wrong place (at any time) or two, that Zimmerman, by carrying a gun in unlawful pursuit of an unarmed 17 year old, provoked the youth and killed him for being in the wrong place (at any time).
In both of these narratives, who Stood Their Ground? The youth who refused to run? Or the chickenshit vigilante with the gun? The youth who fought back after being unlawfully harassed? Or a grown man with delusions of adequacy — and a gun?
The moral of this story is Stand Your Ground but Be Armed. We’re back full-circle to the Black Panthers enforcing their 2nd Amendment rights and the state of California (under Sainted Ronnie Reagan) signing gun control laws.
