For John, BLUF: As long as criminals use guns, citizens will need guns for self-protection. Nothing to see here; just move along.
At the InstaPundit I got a link to the blog Talk Left, "The Online Magazine with Liberal coverage of crime-related political and injustice news".
The title of the Blog Post is "The Legacy of the George Zimmerman Trial".
In the Zimmerman trial and surrounding aura we have some confusion between "gun crime" and "self defense". The use of a gun or other instrument, such as a rock or a table lamp, is a normal and civil reaction to "gun crime". Those who wish to reduce the use of self defense as a protection against criminals with guns should work on a plan to take guns away from criminals without using an NSA like total intrusion into the lives of innocent citizens.
