George Zimmerman and his wife began carrying handguns after repeated run-ins with a pit bull, and the volunteer neighborhood watchman continued his armed vigil over a gated community in Sanford, Fla., as a rash of burglaries left neighbors frightened, according to a report.
The couple took firearms training courses and got handguns and concealed carry permits in late 2009 -- three years before Zimmerman shot unarmed teen Trayvon Martin dead -- after a pit bull named Big Boi menaced Shellie Zimmerman near their home, Reuters reported.
Big Boi later spooked a dog owned by Zimmerman's mother-in-law, prompting the Zimmermans to contact Seminole County Animal Services and to buy pepper spray, the news agency reported. After a third encounter with the dog, Zimmerman called authorities and an officer who came to the house advised him to take up arms.
"Don't use pepper spray," the officer told the Zimmermans, according to a friend who relayed the conversation to a Reuters reporter. "It'll take two or three seconds to take effect, but a quarter-second for the dog to jump you. Get a gun."

He [Zimmerman] was raised in a racially integrated household and himself has black roots through an Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather - the father of the maternal grandmother who helped raise him.This guy has more African influence in his developing years than Obama.
"Let's talk about the elephant in the room. I'm black, OK?" the woman said, declining to be identified because she anticipated backlash due to her race. She leaned in to look a reporter directly in the eyes. "There were black boys robbing houses in this neighborhood," she said. "That's why George was suspicious of Trayvon Martin."
“Assuming that the burglaries can be confirmed,this story plus the photo of Zimmermans bloody head should mean complete victory for him.”
Sure, but that won’t mean a hill of beans to the lynch mobs just chomping on the bit waiting to commence violence.
Though it may mean a great deal to the New Black Panthers’ and others finances when Zimmerman starts suing them into the ground.
All I can say is get your weapons sighted in now.
MSM headline... Zimmerman wants to shoot puppies.
Our retort...And eat them Obama-style!
Yep, that’e the money quote for sure. We heard all along that the homes there had been burgled in the weeks before the Martin incident.
You have to think that the defence lawyers will have this black neighbor and plenty of others to testify as to the crime situation in that commuinity.
