Why would you be free to shoot someone?

This is rich. An attorney asking a layman as to why a person would be justified to shoot another? An attorney that has just attempted to draw a parallel between driving by someone and initiating violent physical contact?

This is sarcasm, right? I've had 4 007 martinis and a half dozen lagers (NEPA speak for Yuenglings) so I just want to make sure. I'm not Rob Ford inebriated but I'm definitely a little slippy.

Okay, this shit always bothers me:

A recent search of the home of George Zimmerman's girlfriend uncovered five weapons, including an AR-15, and more than 100 rounds of ammunition, court documents filed Monday show.

Zimmerman, acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin this year, was arrested last week at the home, which he shares with his girlfriend, on suspicion of his having pointed a shotgun at her.

He was released on bail and has entered a plea of not guilty.

A search of the home turned up three handguns, a 12-gauge shotgun, a rifle and 106 rounds of ammunition, including two AR-15 magazines, according to a search warrant.

Wow! 106 rounds including two AR-15 magazines! He must be stocking piling for the zombie apocalypse.

Interesting developments. Zimmerman's defense is apparently going to be that she was trying to keep him around by faking a pregnancy so she could make big money doing a tell-all interview. He also claims to have recorded part of their fateful final argument on his cell phone.

Zimmerman is primed for DWTS, an E! "I love the 90s" special, or man porn.

Well, my Congressman thinks only terrorists would have that kind of ammo.

You know CNN messed up the "large cache" pitch when people on DU are telling the truth about having 100 rounds in the house:

20. That's sounds fairly typical of a high percentage of homes in Florida. ...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
There's nothing particularly unusual about owning a 12 gage shotgun and an AR-15 rifle as both can be used for hunting in Florida. I believe that you can only have a five round magazine in your semi-auto AR-15 (or other semi-auto rifle) while hunting deer but you can hunt hog on private property with a high capacity magazine as these animals are considered pests.

Target shooting is popular in Florida both on rural private property and on ranges. Most target shooters own one .22 caliber handgun and at least one other handgun. It's not uncommon to meet a pistol shooter who has enjoyed the sport for 15 to 20 years and owns 10 or more handguns. (It seems handguns multiply like rabbits in dark safes.)

For 37 years I lived in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida and I would guess that 60 to 70 percent of my co-workers had firearms in their home. A good percentage of the guys I worked with had concealed weapons permits, perhaps 5 to 10 percent. I knew several woman who had carry permits but it was less common for a woman to have such a permit than a man. However many woman carry a loaded handgun in the glove box of their car in Florida which is legal without a license.

I was somewhat surprised that Zimmerman only had 106 rounds of ammo in his house. That's peanuts compared to most gun enthusiasts.

30. Shit, I'm a vegan and I'd have more than he does

if I wasn't totally happy with my one handgun.

My dad hasn't shot any of his firearms in 20 years and he has more than 100 rounds of ammunition. They are detached from the idea that firearms are used for recreational purposes, and not just killing people. 100 rounds won't get you very far at the range or in your backyard if you want to shoot for an hour or two.

They should do a survey of how many rounds the average cop has in his closet.
