Texas lawyers offer $10,000 for George Zimmerman's legal defense
Orlando Sentinal ^ | 3-31-2012 | Henry Pierson Curtis

Posted on 03/31/2012 9:18:00 AM PDT by bimboeruption

The National Association for Legal Gun Defense wants to contribute $10,000 toward George Zimmerman's legal expenses, a member said today.

The group represents gun owners involved in self-defense shooting cases, said attorney Blue Rannefeld of Fort Worth, Texas.

Rannefeld said he has not been able to contact Zimmerman, 28, and is trying to reach Zimmerman's attorney, Craig Sonner of Altamonte Springs to make the group's offer of assistance.

As soon as Spike Lee and the Black Panthers find out where Zimmerman is, then that $10,000 can go for his funeral expenses.

America is in SAD shape.

This situation has escalated out of control. It’s clear for the sake of justice, Zimmerman will need help. I’m glad he’s finally getting it.

I for one would donate to Zimmerman’s defense.

The media and the race hustlers saw to that. Where's the "New White Cougars" or something like that to form a protective bodyguard for Zimmerman and put out a bounty on anyone threatening to interfere with his safety and due process?

A fine gesture, but he has more pressing concerns at the moment.

Contributing to a fund for his literal defense and personal security might be more practical right now, given the growing lynch mob mentality and mounting sum offered as a bounty.

It’s becoming a foregone conclusion that more people are going to die because of this. I just hope George Zimmerman isn’t among them. He deserves his day in court, if he’s ever even charged with anything that is.

He deserves the opportunity to clear his name.

Me too. He’s in such danger from the braying savages that people can’t even help him. I wonder how that poor man feels right now, seeing that even LE is doing nothing about the “bounty” (hit) that has been put out on him.

Indeed! I suspect there's been legal groups that, if not already, will be stepping forward if this goes to trial. But some will not for fear of thier life when Zimmerman is found not guilty.

Nasty business in the making over this "soap opera" the media has determined in order to distract from the election...and further rile the black community.

Do I hear Obama revving up to come to the rescue in his blue suit and cape? He will before this is done. His script would call for this in time and tide.

And the cowardice and complicity of anyone in a position of power with a microphone, in not denouncing the hit on him and promises to bring to justice anyone who acts on it. I never want to hear about a "high tech lynching" again, when here we have the threat of the real thing and not a peep out of the coward politicians from either side, except the ones running their big mouths to pander to the savages.

I went to the local gun store this morning...the parking lot was overflowing.

Smith & Wesson, LMT, and others on LONG back order list.

Here’s hoping he has help after any trial, because we all know how the likes of Jesse Jackson respect a trial outcome they don’t agree with (latter is sarcasm, former is very serious).

I read that pig Roseanne Barr tweeted the address of Zimmerman's parents, then tried to back step.

I would hope they sue her for all she is worth but I don't think she is worth anything.

I was at a gun store/shooting range yesterday.

Had trouble finding a place to park....

They seemed to have plenty of inventory, but the one thing I went there for they didn’t have in stock. :(

I hadn’t heard that. This stuff is going to keep building and building. Whites are expected to continue to keep a lid on while the pressure builds. We know how that works, like a pressure cooker. The lid will blow sky high.

Can you just imagine the outrage from the race hustlers if that were to occur? Their heads would explode and CWII would indeed be in full swing. Below is just one fine example of the PROPAGANDIZING being done in the commie takeover of our public ed system.

Is the end game of this the same as it was for Fast and Furious, to reduce or remove the right to bear arms? In other words, do they want to make an environment where even if you are still technically allowed to have arms, you would not be allowed to use them in self defense because your name would be plastered across the media and roving bands of our modern barbarians (whatever the color) would march around, protest and put a price on your head? They make it a lose, lose situation, even though arms are “technically” still legal, they are allowed to incite riots, lynch mobs, etc with no recourse from law abiding people?

Why don’t our conservative leaders speak out? I am so angry at some of them like Sean Hannity who jumped on this “lynchmob” bandwagon without having all the facts. They should shouting from the rooftops. We must keep the rule of law!!!

What a crazy mixed up country we live in!

Isaiah 5:20-24
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight!
22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine,
and valiant men in mixing strong drink,
23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
and deprive the innocent of his right!

24 .........for they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts,
and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Sharpton was instrumental in killing Yankel Rosenbaum by stirring up the black community against Jews before the Crown Heights Riots.

Yankel Rosenbaum killing

About three hours after the riots began, a group of approximately 20 young black men surrounded 29-year-old Australian Jew, Yankel Rosenbaum, a University of Melbourne student in the United States conducting research for his doctorate. They stabbed him several times in the back and beat him severely, fracturing his skull. Before being taken to the hospital, Rosenbaum was able to identify 16-year-old Lemrick Nelson, Jr. as his assailant in a line-up shown to him by the police.[5] Rosenbaum died later that night. Nelson was charged with murder and acquitted, but later convicted of violating Rosenbaum's civil rights; he eventually admitted that he had indeed stabbed Rosenbaum

Doesn't he look like he could be Obama's son?

What’s really making me angry is the Sharpton/MSM representatives on FR.

They’re congregating on this thread. I have to get away from it because it’s making me sick.

Because they are not qualified to be leaders. Because of their silence, they are complicit and guilty of aiding the enemy.

I can only hope that with all the latitude the “oppressed” minorities have to show their “true colors”, so to speak, the white kids aren’t so indoctrinated that they no longer even believe their own eyes and ears after repeated incidents like this. If this is all going to lead to CWII, I wish we’d get on with it while we still have the numbers and our right to keep and bear arms. I only say “if” that is the case. Otherwise, we’re all going to be living in Detroit or South Africa and utter anarchy, not a world any civilised people would want to live in.

true dat

I sat in a jury trial selection for a guy accused of felony "terrorist threats" facing 20 years for telling a guy who owed him tens of thousands and refused to pay up that "if you dont pay your life will be in danger"

Spike Lee is making a specific terrorist threat and should be prosecuted in order to preserve law and order, it should not be overlooked just because it is a political statement from a celebrity,

it is a criminal act , our law enforcewment system sucks

Analogy isn’t very apt. The purpose of government is not to make a profit, but to maintain order under law, justice and the rights and responsibilities of citizens, just off the cuff.

Comparing the purpose of government to a profit making corporation is not very useful.

OMG! My Wife and I go weekly and we have to get there a half hour early to get a bay to shoot in.
We're very courteous shooters, too. After about 20 minutes (100 rounds), we're out of there to let the next folks have the bay.
