Default This lady is above the court

http://hellobeautiful.com/2665713/george-zimmerman-gun/

The author of this artical took it upon herself to deliver a guilty verdict. I know this was happening long ago in this case.

What's so wrong with someone visiting a LOCAL gun maker who produced a firearm used in self defense that very possibly saved his life? People are playing it up like he was shopping when clearly he can not buy anything factory direct. It's also being twisted that it was a a publicity stunt when the fact is he didn't make the photo public. Wouldn't he have shared the photo himself if that was the case? It bothers me that people feel they need to publicly slander an innocent man.

I fear that this is the new norm in this country. The judicial system is no longer allowed to work and public sentences are considered acceptable. Self defense is under attack and I can't help but feel this is part of the gun snatchers agenda. They are attempting to protray use of a firearm, determined justifiable, for self defense is wrong.

This is complete crap. I have my CPL and I carry daily. I have been harassed, questioned and even asked to leave a store while carrying. This country is ass backwards.

So I have to ask, how was your firearm discovered when you were asked to leave? You must be very unlucky, frequent shitty establishments, and or carry like a retard. I have never had an issue in 4 years and know people with 30+ years of hassle free concealed carry. So please elaborate in why so many issues.

It was in Home Depot. Bent over to grab something on a lower shelf. My full size I was carrying that day printed on my shirt as a store clerk walked past. A self righteous, tree hugging, Obama loving manager then approached me and asked if I needed help. I told him no and he went on to tell me that Home Depot was not a "carry friendly" store. I asked him if he wanted me to leave. I then asked him if he was an American and had a problem with the Constitution and our rights as US citizens. I told him I would leave and not return and if I ever saw him in trouble on the streets and needed rescue I would walk the other way.

No shit. You have a CPL, no one should know you're carrying until you need to use it.

All of the US would get pics and video of the "crazy gun-nut conservative extremist" who shat on the Home Depot counter.

Which of us? If you mean me, I opened the thread, went and did something else, then replied before refreshing the page with his response. I stand by my statement, if you're gonna conceal make sure you're doing a good job of it or suffer the potential consequences. In this case, harassment.

While I agree with your general outlook and opinion on the matter, the way I interpret that is you had as shitty of an attitude as the manager did. I don't think you were wrong but I don't get the impression you handled it very civilly either. .....but I also realize I wasn't there and am basing this solely on typed conversation, so take my opinion for what it's worth.

Kicked out for "printing" is so fucking extreme. I have to wonder what caused them to watch you so closely that they noticed this. I am not saying they did the right thing but I KNOW I "print" from time to time as do many I know an have never heard of anyone even being questioned on the matter.
