    They hid him in a back room, bro. Most people aren't going to go out of their way to meet somebody like that. Hell, when I was overseas Halle Berry visited our ship and I didn't even bother walking down to the hangar deck to see her.

    Make no mistake, those people love George Zimmerman.

    You could argue that people who share a certain socio-political attitude would have found the notion of his appearance attractive, but in fact, according to the article few people went to see him. So, his appearance was not an asset to the show's promoters.

    I would think many people who ordinarily are 2d Amendment friendly would be embarrassed to be linked or even seen with the guy (like me), and others (also like me) wouldnt want to be caught anywhere near somebody who feels he has to wear a bulletproof vest. And at a gun show, no less.

    You passed up seeing Catwoman? Just because she's a bad driver?

    I am pretty pro gun ownership, right to carry, and right to defend yourself. Cases like his do not in the long run help with protecting our 2nd amendment rights IMHO.

    There is no right way to defend yourself with a gun anymore. Any case will look bad if the person is unarmed regardless of intent or situation. If Zimmerman had used ANY other weapon than a gun I highly doubt there would have been a huge media melt down over it. A knife or rock over the head and it goes from a months long media event to a sidenote in the news. It doesn't matter that dead is dead because guns are demons in the medias eyes.

    OJ, Scott Peterson, and Casey Anthony laugh in your general direction.

    This is the only thing I can agree with, but you buried it in terrible absolutes and generalizations.

    She was 100 yards away. Since she's half white I would've been willing to walk 50 yards, but that's it.
