Trayvon Martin Shooting Reenacted -New Ad Callin
Last comment by HMJC 2 years, 5 months ago.

The video below is chilling and thought provoking. I don't want this to turn into hate or a negative debate. This video was posted as a tool to fight gun violence and the "stand your ground law". Today, another school shooting took place. It's time to revisit our gun laws.

I was disturbed as the PSA insinuated (IMHO), that GZ planned to confront and shoot TM even after the operator told him to stop following TM. You see him reach behind him and put his hand on the gun just before the shooting.

This is just an "AD" to promote hatred!
(IMHO)

You can pass all the gun laws you want to pass but it will not take guns out of the criminals hands.

The video doesn't seem to cover Treyvon circling back, confronting and assaulting Zimmerman after being followed.

At the end of the day what does this PSA message accomplish? Incite more hatred towards Mr. Zimmerman who was aquitted by a jury of his peers. Re-kindle racial tensions. Distort the facts in order to try and make a point. The push for firearm legislation continues to focus on the guns and not the real issue. Criminals and illegal gun sales and tranfers account for the majority of gun violence. The Colorado, New Jersey, and other incidents are not the crux of the issue. Legitimite firearms owners have no issue with background checks. Furthermore the mental health portion should be part of the process as long as it is clearly defined. An example being just because someone may have been seen for depression does not mean they are a danger to themselves or society. Its the ones that do not seek help that you have to worry about. The fear is the definition of mental disqualifcation will be too loosely interpreted. There is no easy answer however; posting a PSA that in no way projects a positive collective message for the need for change is not the solution.

6 women? Five White, one Hispanic?

That is a contradiction in terms.

Not sure where you are going with this one Sporty? Are you saying the jury should have consisted of all hispanics, males, women, blacks, or asians?

HMJC commented on Thursday, Aug 22, 2013 at 15:55 PM

I concur but do not agree with the "contridiction in terms" that Sp3 was alluding to. Not trying to call you out Sp3, just trying to understand your point of view.

SF3, WRU?

HMJC commented on Monday, Aug 26, 2013 at 11:38 AM

Not just SF3, the rest of the world?
