Zimmerman’s Clownshoes

There is something definitely wrong with George Zimmerman.   The man isn’t thinking clearly.
His incident with Travon Martin shows bad judgment.   The actions were shown in court to be not illegal,  but were not wise either.
Then the incident with his wife… bringing his girlfriend with him to the house.  Again,  drastically unwise.  And now with this girlfriend – pregnant girlfriend.   Allegedly pointing a gun at her and throwing her out of her home while she’s on the phone with 911.
GZ has a problem with his decision making process.   The part of the brain that does the Threat Assessment processing clearly isn’t working.   Cost vs Benefit.   Actions vs Accountability.   None of that seems to be working in his head.
One incident (The Travon Martin one specifically) doesn’t legally effect the other… remember that GZ was found innocent by law.  However there is the big picture that shows a pattern of poor judgment.  Which will be used by the Anti-Gun Main Stream Media against gun owners.  Poor judgment isn’t a felony on its own.   If it was, 90% of Congress would be behind bars.
This is important because the media is branding GZ as the Self Defense Poster Boy.  In the eyes of the Media, he is the example of the Stand Your Ground law and arguments are going to slide in that direction.   Any self defense case that can be, will be compared to GZ.  To counter that in the court of public opinion, either in conversations at work or online, you need to be armed with some truths and other examples… better examples.
Allow me to give you a source of good examples.
Lessons from an Armed America,  by my good friends Mark Walters and Kathy Jackson.  Cases of self defense,  all documented, showing how guns save lives.   Join the USCCA, get the Concealed Carry Magazine.  Such stories are in every issue.  Read them.
Also, watch the news and look at the cases where good triumphed over evil because Good was prepared and armed.
We can’t let the opposition use one guy as an example of how gun owners are… that we are all like GZ.  We need to show that WE are the Main Stream America.  We are the norm.  When GZ comes up, turn the conversation to another example of Self Defense in the right.

Concealed Carry Magazine

I can’t say anything right now… but you guys are going to want to subscribe.  There are a lot of great new things planned for the magazine, it’s going to be totally different and awesome.  I’m looking forward to this!

Joined the USCCA ASAP if you are not already a member.


We talk about packing guns for many reasons… one of them is protection.  But have you really thought about it, taking in the ramifications?  You use a weapon to save your life… there was a man with a large knife, coming at you.  You moved behind the hood of a car and use your handgun to drop that threat.  You are alive and the goblin is on the ground dead and twitching.  You did it… it happened.  Now you hear the sirens coming.  Here comes the police.  What happens next?

Depending on what you say and do and where you are at… you could have saved your life only to end up living in a prison cell for the rest of your life.

You need more protection than just a good handgun loaded with good ammo.  You need a Legal Weapon and Legal Ammunition.    Brothers and Sisters, that Legal Weapon is the USCCA’s Shield program.   You get this simply by joining the USCCA.  Along with that, you get Concealed Carry Magazine… one of the best “Gun Rags” out there.  One you can read start to finish, cover to cover… filled with good information and not just a collection of advertisements like some Rags.  There are no ads in it anymore.  It’s worth reading, every month.  But most importantly is that Shield program.  Read through that link… Legal Defense that’s worth joining the USCCA for alone.  I have it, and it really gives me peace of mind.

Also, The Gun Dudes is hosting another MAG-40 course.  Mas is one of the Nations best instructors.  He is the source that a lot of instructors get their information from.  But no one teaches the “What Happens Next” like Mas.  He’s the best there is, because he has literally written the book on it… several books actually. Okay, a whole library.  Here’s why you want to takes this.  Once you graduate Massad Ayoob’s MAG-40 class, Mas will come to your defense and testify as an expert witness for you, on your behalf – at no cost to you.  This is like an additional insurance policy… this is the ammo in your Legal Weapon.  This will keep your ass out of The Cooler.   And the stuff Mas teaches you can also help you save your life as he does teach an impressive shooting course.

Do this.  Go to the Gun Dudes and take that class with Mas.  Join the USCCA and get that SHIELD.  This will give you a very high degree of Protection…. Legal Reactive Armor for your Life and Lifestyle.
